Default Our new Top Gun, Next is now Pure Adenaline

Has it ever been hard keeping this secret. Picked her up this morning and took her to Chris Merrill's to winterize the motors and pack the wheel bearings. I would like to thank all the people that gave me the information I needed to complete the transaction. I had a long talk with Tres Martin and he told me the boat was his pet toy. He did most of the rigging on the boat and took it to Lake X and turned in some pretty impressive triple digit numbers with different boost combinations.
It looks like the motors are around 900hp now and from what the Lake Michigan people have been telling me the boat will run 103mph now.
Lots of clean up and a few minor repairs because it has been sitting so long. I am pulling the motors and sending them to Budahville NC and have the one that was just rebuilt completely gone through and the other just checked. Cyborg trannys seem fine and drive oil looks good.

Is this ever going to be a long summer.
