It's tough to age when your pickled Just went on the DONZI site and still wont let me post.There is a guy on there that goes by the name Freeplay that just bought a Baron a while back and had a new interior made,could you try to talk to him and see if he will tell you where he had his done and how much he paid,thats the only thing thats holding my boat up and after the last two experiences i had getting interiors done around here i don't want to deal with any more in this area.

Yea,but i think they are a lot more efficient ,especially on this design.Travis when you get a chance could you give a us a full rundown of what you been doing to your motors and what kind of speed and rpm's and prop sizes you have done over your many seasons of modifications please.BARONMARINE I still have not gotten an answer from you about FLORIDA.Any luck with that guy on DONZI.net,if you could just get me an Email address or phone number i can handle it ,would appreciate it ,dragging the trailer queen over to the shop tomorrow and gonna try an and get her ready for a ride.Dave wesseldyk was down here and cranked up the blown 1000s in the skater at the shop ,got me kinda fired up again,gonna make time if i gotta quit my OSO addiction.
