Did Parnell build his own engines, or did he pay a builder to do it for him? Does anybody know? Just curious. Wonderin what really let loose.

We figured out the issue. Not running lean. The issue was from before when they were in the sutphen and I can't begin to say enough about Tom Hofstetler. Above and beyond the call of duty. We will be better than ever in early May. Thanks Tom.

BTW 94 mph and counting.

All those messages were on the cell and left between 1:50 AM and 3:55Am both Saturday morning and this morning!!! Thank god Parn said to turn off the phone!!

Also Parnell fried an engine... but they got Dave's Top Gun going to take to Key West all they had to do from what I understood was to fix the hydraulic steering (after 8 hours at Monty's). Once it was fixed in the morning they dunked it and all was well apart from the fact that the had to steer left to go right and vice versa.... They fixed it backward!!!
All true except the girlfreind part

BTW Don't let Offshorgasm Dave hook up your steering. Can you say dislexia?
