    Default Coldwater MI short course drags

    This Friday (July 11th) on Marble lake in Coldwater Mich will be some short course drags. They will start around 6 PM at the island and it will be either 600 or 800 foot course. Some safety equipment will be required, such as life jacket, throwable, horn or whistle and tethers for fuel pump and engine kill. Additional info on S&F under general forums. All boats are welcome to run (IE jet, hydro, outboard or whatever). Tom

    That sounds like fun Tom.
    I won't be able to make it this time because I'll be at Torch lake friday through monday.

    Don't blow it up before The Gun Lake meet.
    There won't be much space for the PB models to sit on your boat though.

    Get some pics and vids.

    Rich's Ally had the top dog honors for sure. Tom from Lansing and I traded wins and were very close. We were seeing 85 mph in the 670 foot track. It was a blast and I didn't blow it up yet!! I think the gun lake deal I'll change lower unit ratios and props. Wish I had the 120 boat ready, it ran 110 at half track in St Louis a couple years ago. Looks like it's a go in 2 weeks in Coldwater again. Tom

    Sounds like it was a real fun event Tom.
    I should be able to make the next one.

    Did someone do a safety inspection at Marble Lake ?
    I think I have most of the stuff but I don't have a manual fuel shut off valve and I don't want to add one either.

    I still would like to set a time to go to Blarneys once this season.

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