Thumbs up Hot Boat Has a successful weekend!

After what has been a several year labor intensive project, Hot Boat has finally got it together. He has been through the wringer with his Scarab. One set back after another. He has improvised, adapted and overcome! Everytime he seemed to have it all figured out, something new would pop up. But he kept at it, and is now enjoying the fruits of his labor! CONGRATULATIONS Paul and I look forward to seeing you next weekend at the lake!

Wow that is great. I have read about all his trial and tribulations on that project. How many hours does he have so far and some one get pictures up for us

It is finally done. all I need to do is keep prying that it stays together. we had a great relaxing day yesterday. its been a long time since I could say that. I took a few photos of the boat and will try and post them in a fer days. Now all Have to do is break it in , do a little tuning,lab my prop go out and kick some ass on the river.

I can't thank Paul enough... Humming along at 60 under the T.Z. bridge and BLAHHHHHHHH dead in the water, open the hatch look in the bilge see what looks like a VALVE, i'm like I didn't hear any EXPLOSION ?? turns out the sea-water/fuel pump belt broke, and in typical hot-boat fashion he had me up and running w/ a brand new belt in a matter of MINUTES, talk about a pit-crew... Anyway, w/ all the sh!t that boy has on his boat, he might as well tow a BARGE behind him, I bet he can gain 5 mph if he left HALF the tools home.. Thanks again it would have been one hell of a ****ty day..

There are times that I think he was McGyver in a former life!

IT was a great day except for the 50 mph winds, hail, lightning, 6 ft. rollers, ZERO visibility, and being stuck under the T.Z. bridge w/ tar, rust, dirt, and whatever else raining down on us from under the bridge for an hour waiting for it to blow over..
