OK lets see where should I start, bought the hull and deck new in "94" been working on "THE PROJECT" ever since. Took it to the water 2yrs ago three times once never left the trailer the other two times I ran it for the grand total of 27 min's. I have some where around 200,000.00 invested not to mention the hrs, that comes to about 4700.00 a min. Oh yea and this to is a 39 OX. must be something with the OX,s what do you think phatkat! and I dont think beer is going to be strong enough for this one.

Man that would be frustrating. By buddy "P-Offshore" on the board can top that though.

Mrs. P. Been busy all day putting brakes on the wife's jeep. No computer time for me! The best I can remember (it's been 3 years sitting in the garage), we do our boating mainly in the Lake Erie (Monroe, Toledo) area. We hang with the LEOPA group when we get wet.

Sylvester, There is a magic potion derived from the guava plant that may cure all of our problems, some field testing may be in order. ( TEN YEARS?!!) can't you get anyone to help you with that

Chi town, I'm thinking an OX rally may be in order for next year. Maybe we should check with the factory to see if we can over night in parking lot. ie trailer queens!
