The Lucas Oil vee was running just perfect. #18 Donzi was trying to catch him in the corners but Lucas just out powered him in the straights and took the checkered flag.

Lucas was just ripping the course up! They sounded good doing it too! Pantera was having some engine problems and never were a contender. Pier 57 fragged a crash box and could only putter around on one engine. The boat with the number 2 on the side is Gordo's boat. They just didn't have the boat as dial in as their competator. Maybe next time.

HP-we had a good time! Unfortinatly, you guys brought over more food than what we had prepared! I think the kids had a really good time. They only slowed down a couple of times! I heard the one was getting pretty skilled at catching frogs. I'll have to try his technique some day. The boat was a no go on Sunday. I had an idea to get it going, and it actually was feasible. We got the distribution block off, but the threads were just too buggered up to seal. We tried tightening the nipple and it just wouldn't seal. Luckly we have a modification of my original idea that WILL work. I should be on the water by this weekend.

Cord, thanks for the get together, was very nice.

However, I did leave the Mike's Lemonade to replace Hp's Pabst he took home

Sorry you did not get you boat out, it was a windy day on Sunday.

We chased a starboard side 525 EFI wiring and fuel problem the entire weekend.It was the first time the boat had touched water since the Key West race back in November. We ended up finding a loose ground wire on the motor,then a bad fuel pump regulator. We will be back racing soon.

Had a chance to meet a few OSO members at the race. Very nice to meet you guys.


Want to say thanks to the Innovation Marine guys and the entire APBA staff and few OSO members that work hard trying to locate a fuel pump regulator like Downtown 42', Little Tommy, and a few others.

Regards,

oh oh.....i had a feeling that block i made was a bit thin on the sides. Was the biggest we had here that would fit your 3/4" fittings. Did it flex on the thin sides or did the alum just get buggered? If we ever get any spare stainless material off one of our mold projects i will make you a new one. Oh and your socket is done. I didnt press fit the bushing in place incase it ever was to get fudged up. Its tight and has set screws on the side you can take out. I'll try and get it shipped out today.
