    That 10' of water is swift. I'll bet that block has moved close to mile from where it landed. Glad you got your boat running last night. I need to get busy and get mine ready for at least a couple of trips this year.

    I'll bet that thing is hard to drive with the steering on the left and the seat on the right.

    Sounds good though!

    Did you wash it first? Isn't it amazing what a little elbow grease will do?

    I guess that MGD and BBQ is out, huh?
