Well put it this way, My boat isn't quiet, and I was running around 4200rpm's and you were coming straight at me and passed by with a wave, me going north, you headed south, all we heard, was your exhaust for a few seconds. It's not too loud, it's never too loud, just keep that in mind!

COOL !!! I think I was around 3500-3800 when we passed.. imagine what it sounds like at 5700 !!!

When I get it running again I will have to have someone do a drive by for me !

Cool

Saw the copter yesterday also just past the Blue Water Bridge, would love an aerial photo of the boat. If anyone figures out who the mystery pilot/photograher was please let us know!

Hey Mike ,
Aren't you supposed to be at the bar with your boss trying to get me a job !!!

Unfortunatley that is probably what is going to happen since it's to early in the season to call it quits.
I planned on stopping Lenny's to see if I can pull the motor out at the shop tommorow.

OK, I'm calling Boatpix tomorrow and see if its them. If it's them you'd think they'd letter up that chopper so someone actually knew who to contact.

ViciousOne: Got an address for that guy if its not boat pix. If it aint him he might know who it is if he flys as well.

Chavvez, I'll try to find Dale's home number I used to have it back when I worked for ocean express. He is the only guy I know around here that fly's a copter around harsen's island.

Default Question

Did anyone ever get ahold of the guy taking the PICs ?

I know when we saw him, we caught a little air off of another boats wake when the 4 31 scarabs were running out of the bay.

Just like they say at the pokerruns......it's not a race (but we all know dockspace is limited )
