Steve, Kim, Kenny and the crew have been great, I only wish I lived closer but they would have placed a restraining order on me by now. Steve special ordered black plexiglass windscreen today, gonna be a few more weeks, still hoping to splash this fall??????
Black windscreen....Perfect choice.

Alright you got me......I ordered it to get out in front of Bob. I think a pair of Merc 1300's should do it.....i think.

Charley that thing looks great and should be fun when finished . Last I spoke with Bob he was telling me about his source for avation fuel . I am hoping to talk him into running plain old high test . That thing will be crazy fast either way

Funny you said that, I talked to Steve today and he said that he has been talking to a potential buyer who wants 1300's in a 39, that would be cool but I'm sure Bob's gonna have plenty of boost to spare if anyone gets close. the new 39 in the pic. is an extra light carbon fiber/kevlar getting staggered merc. 565's/xr sportmasters and not much furniture in the cabin. Steve's thinking 100 mph.

Kenny was saying they hope to have it ready for the season finale out of St. Pete. That would be bad ass if it runs 100 with the new 565's.

Not yet, still waiting on the windscreen and then the new cockpit cover can be made. I've got a couple of big jobs to finish up before I'll have a weekend free to make the trip. The motors are done and waiting!!!!
