Hi Wally, Can't get your link to work ....

Hi Groove , I'm usualy on here somewhere . Just real buisy this time of year with buisness stuff. I do love diesels and would love to do a diesel boat one of these days . Right now I have a 39 express cat with blower motors (GAS) . I do keep my eye out for the right boat for a diesel project . Got to get light weight diesels though , and make big power from them . My engine in this truck weighs 3,000 lbs with no trans ! IF I put that in my boat it would sink ! Got to go back to work now . I'll check in later ... JOE

the link works...i think the site may have been having problems..

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy horsepower. And I've never seen a sad person hauling a$$!

hi Otto , How's your boat ? Mine MIGHT be out soon ! I think your boat would be easier to tow behind my new toy ! Mine being 12' wide is tuff .... I say we hook your boat and head south after the summer !

Hi Puder, Yeah I found about 30-40 nice companies that build them . I like the Kingsley coach .They do have a couple nice Peterbuilts USED, ready to go for around $300k-$350k ! $675k new ! They wanted $185k for the 22' box to put ON MY TRUCK !! And that was not the top of the line ! I think I can do it cheaper ..........

Thanks all . I'll have some more pictures soon . Getting ready to paint the cab....
