    Default Oil Slick

    Can you run your Pump thru the Oil Slick's "Self Lubricating Gumbie'"

    The plan to Beach Boats. Hit it at 90 and come out at 15

    Sure you can but only on the 3rd Wednesday of every month and only if the old grey haired lady at the 5th house from the corner gives you prior permission. She sure does make a mean cornbread so make sure you stop in and have a piece if you are in the area.

    If I ran a Machine Shop near the Gulf right now, I would be building short blocks and long blocks just as fast as I could.
    Not high dollar ones, but throw away stockers.
    I was building engines at a shop in Anchorage during the Exxon Valdez clean up. We worked virtually around the clock for months building engines. Some guys were leasing choppers to fly long blocks to Valdez as fast as they could get them. (One guy I remember with a twin screw 90' craft was going through about 2 engines every 2 weeks. He was leasing his boat out for 7K a day.)
    You could almost auction off the long blocks to the highest bidder. I remember one guy giving us a $5K "bribe" on top of the engine cost to have 1 LB ready by morning since he had a chopper on standby.
    The oil slugdes up the heat exchangers and the motors cook. Exxon was leasing private vessels for 5K- 10K a DAY plus skippering wages to the owner or captain.
