    Default I survied Hot boat weekend!

    Well I made it back home! Im wore right out Didnt see NO SHO 19 and the the other blown STD I started to tear the v drive coupler apart tonight and it looks like I sheared the key clean off the keyway on the v drive looks ok but I have to take the seat out in order to get a hammer to tap on the center of the prop shaft to get the coupler off. Man that boat ran nice strong until that happend. I saw somthing like 7100 on the tach and and there was some more pedal left. Motor loved the zoomies.

    Another survivor here! Great time, lots of boats, babes, and story telling Made it home in record time, less than 4 hours..including fuel/pit stop. I need to move to Michigan, that will cut at least an hour off some of the meets.

    I had a great time and no parts breakage this time.
    Went back Sunday and there was a lot of racing at the sandbar.
    I ran a local guy from Walled lake with a blown flatbottom and it was big fun.
    I think there will be a video of it on S & F.

    I heard Tony the Yooper put on a good show Saturday.

    I can only think of one other that surpasses it and now I have a boat that will accomodate both.

    that wasnt leaping it. I just rolled it over and floored it. I was going to make a full throttle pass in front of the sandbar... I wanted to be going wide open when I went past so I could shut it down and make the corner and coast in. Nothing went as planned

    Well then there's always next time...
    It was nice to meet you Bo Duke, cool to see another Olds. I'm meeting you all one at a time, this just gives me a reason to make more events/gatherings/PARTYS! That's planning.

    I got lots of pictures of the big boats. Spent most of Sat. in the big water on Tommy's HTM and John's Warlock. I thank both of you guys for the awesome rides. I'll get some pictures posted later.

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

    Hey Kevin,
    You put on the best flatbottom driving show I've ever seen.
    Your balls must have to ride in the seat next to you.
    That boats a monster. Reset the rev limiter and there's not much that's going to run with it.

    I liked the way you did the no wake zone too.

    I would like to run them again without a passenger in my boat.
    The wife was getting pretty scared.
    I'll have the life vest on next time too.

    Maybe that last race at Marble lake ?
