Cripes. KAAMA oughta just winterize 'em now. It's gonna be snowmobile suit weather too soon. All things considered, I shoulda just towed my boat to the slip last spring instead of running it. Could saved myself the heartache of filling 'em with green antifreeze.

Travis----now I think that was as EXCELLENT point! In fact it's supposed to get back up into the near 70's or so this week and weekend from what I heard.

Anyway gang, we've got the steering all primed and set and is fully functional now. I just went and got a new fuel line and that one leaks too!----must be a bad batch of them, but we're going to cut our own braided hose and try that. Engines idle at about 775-825rpm and are VERY responsive when I crack the throttle! I still need to replace the water temp gauges. One came today and the other I still have to pick up from SuperV. So a water test is in order for tomorrow if we can make it to the launch before dark----might take it over near where Dyno lives and rattle his cage with my Stellings.

When are you going Mark? I live a mile from that launch and can come out and watch. I won't be home until 6 or so, but can be in the water in a heartbeat.

Mitch, we will probably be there right around 6pm or so I would think. If we water test it, that's probably going to be the place we're going to do it because it's the closesest launch to my shop. Might be a good idea to have a chase boat, so if you decide to show up we will see you there. Mitch, if there is a possibility that you can make it could you please bring your digital camera too? thanks.

I'm quite sure dandy dyno Don will be there too!

I'll call the cop shop and tell them to be ready with their sound meter. Hey, Waterfoul could bring the Allegan County Silent Choice exhaust that Team Chaos uses to test fire the Double D engines.
