Not sure who the owner was. There were about 10 or so boats that made passes, of course I have already forgotten the name of everybody I met. As far as top dog, well Haas was of course. I didn't race everybody, I expect the blown Daytona would have been tough for me to get around.
Haas in the purple hydro
Me in the Cole flat
74 shovelnose (hydro)
A 21 Daytona jet with a blower and nitrous
A hard running black and yellow jet, Youngblood?
Tom Wright in his lake boat
A red capsule OB tunnel
A blue and white OB that ran really hard
A couple other OB's, Rapid Craft or something along those lines.
I heard someone say that they might run again before the 29th? Any truth to that?
I tried hard to make Marble Lake but had a run of delays and small probs that kept me from making it.
Lately everytime I go out there seems to be another small problem. After I fixed the leaking Earls fitting on the turbo oil pressure line and fixed the broken battery cable fitting on the starter, now the intercooler is leaking.
I still was able to go to Brower on Saturday and Torch lake on Sunday and Monday though.
I guess considering the amount of hours I put on this I should expect some repairs.

I'm planning on driving out Friday afternoon with the Cole. See everybody there!
Ok, looks good for me going.
I have a worn out bearing in one turbo and ordered a new center section (cartridge) that I'm supposed to have Friday.
Not a bad deal though, new turbine wheel / shaft and compressor wheel, new bearing housing and seals, Pretty much all the guts new from Garrett
for $ 435.00.
I got 6 seasons on the original turbo that was a rebuilt old whore to start with, and I wasn't nice to it either.
If the new one doesn't show up I can put the old one back in.
It made plenty of boost but had an internal oil leak and wanted to smoke like an outboard .
is this west of wamplers on 12
I'm planning on being there too. I'm not able to get out of work until 4 or so though. I'll have the lake boat. Tom
Sounds great Tony, Im assuming you know how to get there. If you need directions let me know or here is the quickest way.
69 south to coldwater/us 12 exit head East on US 12 about 6 miles you will come into the town of Quincy, at the light you will turn South on Ray-Quincy rd. and go about 6 miles to wildwood rd. and you will then turn right and follow down right to the boat launch. Sand bar is 2:00 to your right as your standing on the boat ramp. Give me a call if you need anything.
I want to go to this one........ there is someone else from our area (that you know) that will be going this Fri. and I was thinking we could all roll down together. That would make 3 v-drives from this area.
You just need your basic requirments-vest,floatation device,horn or whistle, etc. we have to put numbers on or boats this week for dnr purposes but everything else goes. You can run any kind of pipes you want, but the stipulation is you can only go from the public access off of wildwood rd. to the sandbar to race. anywhere besides to the sandbar and the access and your free game to the cops for a ticket.
