Mitch.. dude... you are a walking cast man.. sheeesh

I thought my pain was bad.. but sounds like nothing now.. the worst I have gone through is a compound fracture of my arm, and my knee went out and tore the ACL ..

Dave,
The parts are on order. THe botom end was perfect. But since it's apart we will be putting in new bearings, and rings. The valves are questionalble so new valves and rockers (the rockers were starting to bind and a c-clip fell off one). And new fuel pumps for both.

Hope you get beeter soon. How are your motors coming?

Mark

They just need to be bolted together. I sent one blower out for a rebuild yesterday. There's a guy about 15 minutes from you that will sell you bearings and gaskets pretty reasonable.

Yeh Chris, I have had my share of casts, and pins, and plates (still have a plate and 6 screws in my forearm but I can still bench 280 and it doesnt blow out!!!) If it were not for weight lifting I would be in a wheelchair. Muscle is all that is holding me together, that and fat. The best thing about pain is that you never remember it. Think about that for a while.

Patti, Barb has had the flu all this week so we're both moving kind of slow,,, I'm getting the pins removed from my right wrist this Thursday so I really doubt that we'll be making the drive to the boat show on Saturday. Thanks for the kind words and thoughts.
Fred, Tom is under the grand illusion that a Fountain 40 is really forty feet long, so we'll let him enjoy the dream for a while yet. You gotta admit, he got a lot of boat for the money.

Hey Fred I didn't know Tom was your twin cousin. You don't even look alike.
Put a beak and a platform on that boat of yours and you'll have a 47 Apache
