    Default DaytonaTunnel/68Droptop/Chris/Capt'n Chaos....Thoughts and Prayers

    Life has dealt Robyn and Droppy some crappy hands lately and I thought the friends he has made here would want to know that the NW bunch have them covered but I'm certain that they would appreciate you guys keeping them in your thoughts and prayers. These are damn good people (just misguided about their motor choice).

    To keep this focused on Jetboats so Rexie don't gotta move this post, can any of you help me make my 235 ci 6 cylinder competitive with Droppys 5.4 bizillion cubic inch blown ford?
    Curious if I swapped the pulleys from my lawnmower and washing machine, would it help get my boost up where it belongs so I can hang with that regoddamndiculas Daytona and the piece of shiznit ford of theirs?????

    Droppy, you suck but I love ya man........see you tomorrow...biotch

    HAHAHA, John you always have something funny to say.......
    Chris and family seem to be hanging in there great!

    p.s if you would just buy Rodgers daytona and up your boost you could hang....

    Actually I was checkin out the punkazz kids compressor for the airbags on his truck. That thing with the hose from my shop vac and some duct tape should hook me up with some bad azz boost. Might even have to blow on a whistle to get the right sound though. . .
    Wait a minute, isn't that what Travy is up to with those Vidal Sasoon hair dryers he picked up from Jan at the garage sale?
    Not bustin ur chops Travy, I know how it's important to have nice hair..

    Back on topic, Droppy and Robyn are good peeps and deserve our support during this shitty time. Hang in there guys. We all have ur back......john

    Sorry to hear that for sure, hopefully nobody was hurt(yes that includes the daytona). If your out there Chris hang in there, try to look at it as a "remodeling oportunity". Sounds like John and others have got your back, if theres anyting I can do give me a yell.

    I rememeber wondering why Droppy's shop was soooo far away from the house the first time I saw it...

    He could've just told me, instead of setting up a demonstration...



    Just give the word and the jet boat masses will march to the Claw.

    Now that I've seen it first hand, pictures and descriptions don't even come close to telling the story. I don't know if I would have been as quick thinking as Robyn and Droppy had been. Scary stuff for sure

    We're doing good now. Was TUFF last week !!! Father in-law (A great guy !!!) passed away, helped mother in-law clean up her house after his passing all day Friday the8th, came home beat ass tired, house catches fire and burns badly that night, went to funeral all day Saturday. Doesn't get much worse than that !!!

    Things are better now, living in JohnRorks trailer and have some normalcy going. Thank god for good friends !!! John's trailer has a slide out, which makes living in a LOT easier for us and our 7yo boy.

    House will take about 3-4 months to rebuild, demolision starts Monday.
