Wow what an awesome showing at Hardy. It was nice meeting a large number of OSO people. Waterfoul you are welcome along anytime. I found a beach towel onboard that is not ours let me know if you are missing one. We were unable to make it on sunday because, my wife caught a cold and did not want to be out in the heat. Tink when are you going to be done for the year?
Hopefully we can make it out again. Dwight

That was pretty fun. It was my first time there(for the get together). Thanks to Dale Korhorn "Cougar Dale" for loaning me his 3/4 Monster to haul midnght there and back (he had his kids so he decided not to go). Saw allot of people I knew, was able to race a few people, I think we saw maybe 84mph up there, the water is way to flat. But we did get to party and have a good time. Sorry to Mr. Gadgets friends in that Maxum. It was pulled right up on shore by us after the accident, its a miracle no one was killed. Midnight

PS- Next year I think we will bring our own girls!!

Wow it was a good time Sunday, saw a lot of boats but didn't see any names on boats that I've seen on the board.I think I saw hotboat but no one around. Sorry to hear about Mr. Gadgits freinds, wow what a bummer, was that the freinds that were at G.H races last weekend? If you boat does'nt run at least 90mph there was no reason to run anybody,and hey I thought you're to pass boats on the left, gezzzzzzzz,Got mine to run 75mph on the gps and I was gotta raise that x-dim. wish I could have been there sat. to meet some members,maybe next time.did anyone see me? 24' aero offshore lowdeck ,red sides and white top, with an aero style scoop ,howed it sound? can you hear the whipple? and come on no jokes please!

as long as the weather holds up I'm not done yet.
I don't know why the Egt quit ( it isn't the display so it must be the thermocouples or the interconnecting wires ) Oh well -This late in the season if they blow they blow. They are both coming out this fall to do a little more TINKERING. See if I can get the tank to do 85 GPS.

Hi Tinkerboater ~

Was your boat the white Scarab with the pastel triangles and cube designs on the side?

If so, Nice boat!

We messed up by making plans at the last minute -- I would have loved to meet more of you. Maybe next time!

Yeah Whitey, that American Flag towel is mine. Realized I left it on your boat about half way home. Give me a call next time you're around this way and we'll work something out.

I am sure bummed out that I didnt get to meet all the OSO family present up there at Hardy!!! I was hoping that the evening would bring out some meetings, but after dinner we turned down the boat ride and went to bed for a good nite's sleep.. But as things turned out we were thankful that no one was killed from campfire dinner.. I have not heard an update as to how everyone is doing, but I will try and find out and let everyone know.

On Sunday I cleaned out the damaged boat and after that was just not in the mood to boat. It is ironic that seven years ago the couple that owned the boat from this weekend's accident were going to ride with me and passed on the invitation. That was the ride when my outdrive fell off at 80+mph and I took the ride to the hospital. But as fate would have it, we are all still here and breathing, thank God!

Well I guess all I can say is "Next time"!! I hope to meet OSO people. That was the main reason I headed for Hardy, cause I dont usually have very good luck up there.. On a good note, my boat ran all day Saturday and I leaned on it every chance I could. So I guess my luck has turned!! Finally..

A big welcome to all the visitors from OSO that made it to the Hardy Party.. Hope to see you all there next year!!
