    We had a pretty wicked miss due to the salt water spray on EVERYTHING. Not sure, but I think his recommended fix was a complete engine rebuilt, new heads and cam, and something about turning the engine around the "right way".

    I know he kind of got an I eye opener on how hard those things run the turns.

    Amazing to see in person how hard that boat turns. I can say first hand, there isn't a boat out there that will turn like the GN7. At least, if there is, I didn't see it. It was really great to finally meet Bill, too. Had a great time. Glad you were able to put a leg up on the points.
    As far as my suggestion for a fix...since when do you ever listen to me anyway? That salt water is an electrical nightmare. One advantage the taller freeboard boats have there @ LB.

    I had a feeling he would recommend something like that...I gotta say I was surprised when I woke up saturday morning my motor was still there...had a funny feeling Scott was going to take it down the Long Beach.....

    Bill will be covered in that silicone grease pulling that engien to get ready for the 300 mile enduro. I had the stuff everywhere

    The 21 ft Rayson with the right set up and driver will turn every bit as hard or harder. The 21 Rayson is one of hardest turning boats in cirlce racing.

    The 24 boat had fuel delievery issues on saturday but got a handle on them for Sunday, The 47 boat didn't have its normal driver in it on Saturday, but sure as hell did on Sunday. Both those boats were on a mission for the final.

    It seems like the 21 uses the deeper V to its advantage in the corners to slice it up and the 20 seems much more stable in the straightaways . I sure could tell when ROBBY was drivin the 47 on Sunday.....Whew. Sure wish the armenian navy was a lil more competitive this weekend with their ol rented mule wrinkled up bag of bones for a driver...... ANyways the GNs are always a hoot to watch, especially when a bunch of um are runnin and the water looks like the bering sea!!!

    Stick to flat bottoms Lilrick. The V in the 2 Raysons is with a degree of each other. They are as different as night and day on the bottom, but its not in the V angle.

    Compared to some, we had a pretty good weekend.
    No, not mine, but we have all been there.

    This was no off shore crank either.

    If you ask Scott, he will tell you there is NO SHORTAGE of step ups in my pits, FOR A REASON! Scott was one of the TALLER people in my pit. Which was another eye opener for him this weekend
