Default "I shagged a rotten (drive) baby!"... Huge thanks to Offshore Performance though.

Put Monsoon in the water at Sandy Point State Park, on the Chesapeake Bay to head over to Red Eyes and watch the Poker Run, and meet up with the RBPA who headed into town. She ran 76mph with just me on the boat, Full tanks, and full coolers/overnight gear...

...less than 5 miles over to Red Eyes, and as I come off plane... Bad vibration and noise from the SB drive:

2003 B1 XZ Drive behind 496HO, 137 hours or so:

Started calling a few Service Shops immediately on a Saturday afternoon.

BK at Offshore Performance picks up. He could not have been nicer; and says leave it in front of the shop, and we will flush both motors, and tear her down on Monday.

By Noon on Monday, when I made it back out to OP with my drive lock keys (duh), they had already found a key to remove the bad drive, and had it tore down, and estimate being prepared.

Thank goodness for warranty, and thank goodness for good friends in the Marine Industry. BIG props to Offshore Performance for taking care of me. Hope to be back in the water this weekend.

"Its not IF your drive blows... its WHEN." Thanks BK and John, as well as the whole crew at OP for taking care of this with the least amount of pain possible. Warranty is a good thing.

Good to hear they jumped on it so quickly Brian, and it was good to put a few down with ya over the weekend. I was the token add-on HRPA rep to hang with the Richmond boyz & gals...

Brian, I'm glad to hear you'll be running again soon with minimal pain.

Very cool

Glad to hear everything went so smoothly Brian. You took a broken drive alot better than I would have. It was a great weekend despite your drive and the rain going home on Sunday. We will see you on the Potomac this weekend.
Rick, it was nice seeing you along with the Richmond crew. I look forward to doing some boating down your way.

Ty and Caroline
