Talking Re: Final inspection before shipping

I don't know about him selling those 525's "Dock"

In 2002, Cigarette made a change to the 2001 Gladiator, staggering the engines and featuring Mercury 525's. The boat was originally built with twin 500 EFI's and made speeds of about 90 mph. Though the boat can still be purchased with side-by-side engines, Cigarette believes the balance, handling and speed of the boat are improved with the staggered configuration of 525's. Gladiator owners look for at least 94 mph with this new, updated model.

94 mph on 525 EFI's way to go 2112!

Actually I am selling the 525's because I am a Die Hard Ford man and I plan to use two BB Fords. Maybe even with Boss 429 heads (For the looks, no real HP advantage in my application).

Thanks for the compliments guys!

Looks great,
When will you have the motors changed and be in the water, would love to see your boat in the water.
Have you heard about www.nwoffshore.com ?
There are a few local events in this area that are alot of fun.

I will be in my (blue)Fountain this summer since it takes a lot of time to do all the custom fabricating of Ford running gear.

Yes I have been on that site just not for a while, should check in again.
Name there is "Permanent Waves" (Fountain's name).

My first boat was a (blue)Warlock 24 euro. Had I realized how well that boat was constructed, as I now do, I would have kept it. I bought it from Tom Davidson in Seattle in 1991, He is a great Guy.

Me or Troutly?

I don't go through them, I just don't prefer to use them even though they are pretty dang nice packages closed cooling, EFI and all. Selling them helps me fund my real objective, Power by Ford.

My Fountain is does not have a high enough value to drop them in for a sale there either.

GLH!

I was waiting for your input. Thanks for the compliment BTW.

You know, I just got to be me, an oddball if not unique.
