Talking Headline:: Mr Gadgets sets new world record..!!!

Well I call it a new world record!! It has been two years since my boat has seen water. I ran it two days this weekend.. about 6hrs running time and it stayed together!! No problems as yet... it made it to the launch under it's own power both days.. I went over the 4000rpm point where my stuff usually blows up or breaks something.. and it is still running..



What a feeling!! Boating without breakage..

If this keeps up... LOTO Shootout weekend here I come..

One Happy Dick!!

Good to hear you finally got it wet! Where you scared to open it up, like I was? Or did you? So how did it run?

Congrats, Eric
