Got the Skater together and FIRED!

Well, last night my friend Chris Hyde and I worked till late late late and finally got her all put back together and fired her on the hose. Both engines roared to life after the long winters nap. Looked like the space shuttle was taking off with all the smoke from the fogging oil and being egg beaters. But it sure sounded good to hear them come to life.

Tonight OTIS311 and I are going to get her wet. I hope all systems function correctly and nothing breaks! Tomorrow night or Friday morning I will be giving her a bath.

Glad to hear she is up and running.
I suspect "late late late" is relative, lets compare that to Kappus time.
Hyde is the man, we all know he helped me out a ton last year when I lost a bearing.....is he gonna stop up this weekend....I owe him a drink or 10.

Well, of course late late late is relative. You guys wouldn't have even STARTED by the time we finished! Got everything wrapped up at about 10:30pm or so. I just spoke to Hyde and he said he is going to try and make Saturday night.
