Mark,

You are taking all of this way too serious!

I'm just like you, I pray everything holds together. If anything breaks it will sure ruin a great weekend, not to mention hurt the pocket book.

If you look at the number of boats in Jacksonville last year compared to Savannah this year, we were all pretty lucky at Jacksonville.

I have never met a boat I didn't like, and trust me, Velocity's are very high on my list.

It is exciting that a manufacture like Velocity gets involved in this event. I look forward to seeing all the toys they bring.

Like they say, it's not how fast you are but whether or not you finish. The outdrive I broke in July was the first thing that has failed me in a long time and when you are crazy about maintenance like I am it really does concern you.

What ever happens, the wife and I just look forward to being with all our friends and having a good time.

Isn't it past your bed time?

Mark,

You got any pictures of the dash with the new gauges installed?

I have really been wanting to see out it turned out.

Dock I have been trying to enjoying the little bit of summer that we have left after the winter project that lasted until the 4th of July. And we wont even go into what happened that weekend. But I have not taken the time to get the dash panels made. I am going to try to have it ready before Jacksonville.

Mike,

It is known in our area that you know how to build an engine. If the engine looks half as good in the boat as it does their in your living room it as to be awesome.

See you down there.

Mark,

I hope you get it done, it will sure look nice.

I bet you have a whole new respect for fuel quality, boost pressure and crimped lines.

Heard a little of the story.

Just glad you will be able to make it.

Yeah me too. I really hate we could not make it. I bet you missed Tommie more than me!

Sounds like you guys put on a good show. I have had two people that don't even own boats to comment on all the "Cigarette" boats on Wylie that weekend.
