    Unhappy Why we missed Brower

    Here are a couple of pixs one shows the boat does run. Wednesday in Oscoda we went up but didn't come back on our own. Evinrude came to the rescue. Now we are putting in new engine parts. sorry first pix is a wrong one

    Looks like your getting pulled across Foote Pond!!
    Next time you come up to Oscoda, let me know. I run my boat every weekend out there on the river.

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    We have finally found the crank Ron wanted and the block is in the machine shop, of course it was suppost tobe done on Monday this week. We are now told Tuesday we will really have to husle to make Hot Boat Weekend. We still have one more problem we are trying to clear up. Can we use closed heads #8904390 (these are already rebuilt) with #3999295 pistons (0.1 domed). We also have some open head #346238 that need work , we are concerned about the clearence, ratio (beacause of gas type) and the detonation issues. Keep getting different information, from different sources. Best source should be other performance boat guys?
