We also got to see Check300 run his awesome turboed Check! What a ride that boat is!! I didn't get any photos of his boat (sorry Bill). We will be back for the Hardy party and hope to see more OSOer's then. I will be tweaking the WV and will hopefully find a few more MPH!!

So Craig, are you finally going to get me over that oh-so-illusive century mark???

Well Foul, you have to be at the lake to get that 100 MPH+ ride I promised you. Maybe at Hardy Party?

I am planning on being there... possibly with my little glastron just to get around with.

It was fun running with you last weekend. Can't wait to do it again. Did Max Velocity find out what happened to his engine? I had to replace my sea water pump as the bearings were frozen. No other damage so I'm ready to run again. Tom Earhart is going to help me do some high rpm tuning tomorrow so should be interesting.

Actually Max Velocity toasted his Bravo 1 and it locked up on him. His motor is fine and the high, milky oil came from his exhaust. It is either reversion or he took some waves into his exhaust when he was beached. I am doing some carb tuning and I have 3 new props to try that should get my RPM's down. In case none of the props work I am putting in a 7000 REV limit chip so I can run the boat with tunnel tabs all the way up and let that motor sing!! The drive won't like it, but it will certainly be fun!!! See you soon at the lake!! Can't wait to see Earhardt blow by me at 130 ++++.

I should be picking the AO up this Thursday with the new upgraded drive.
Hopefully this one will last a little longer than 5 hours.....
Check300, that is one impressive ride you have. Thanks again for all of the help and I look forward to seeing everyone again during the hardy party.

Yes, I converted. I also got rid of the imco 2" shorty and went with the standard length lower. I was getting some major prop slip #'s with the shorty. I guess all the people that told me NOT to put the shorty on knew what they were talking about.
