Thumbs up An HONEST to goodness Mr. Gadgets sighting!!!!!!

Well, I'm running around Grand Haven today (Sunday) and who do I see???? Mr. Gadgets!!!! In his own boat!!! Under power!!! Not being towed!!!!! OH YEAH!!!!!!!!! He was doing the "don't stray more than a mile from port" circle thing.

Ran around in circles with him for a while at 40 mph....then 50 mph.....then 40 mph......then I just blew him away and left him eating my 60 mph wake!!! If he wan't doing break in I'm sure he would have cleaned my clock though!!!! Sounds awsome!!!

It sure was good to see you on the Water Dick. Now, keep it together the rest of the summer!!!!

Thanks you guys... it seemed like I was going 100mph... mike. Thanks for running with me.. sorry about the break in stuff.. just want to take it easy.. I did see 4500 at the end of the day for a short.. but my GPS was at home.. no idea how fast I ended up..

Any luck finding parts for yours.. good thing you checked it.. I would say the sidewinder thing was keeping you alive!! Good thing.

Dyno,
I have a long honey do list to attend to.. as well as the truck.. no AC and no flooring .. got real hot on the way to Chicago yesterday..

Kamma, when can I say that about u??


later

Dick
