hey outlaw,

yes you do know me. i have been a partsman since '95. originally at a small dealership in new mexico. i hang out with 22 tunnel, me and him go way back. i sold a 454 engine to another friend of ours, he put that into a red chevy car! hopefully that is enough clues!! i'm thinking you probably have an idea of who i am, maybe i'm wrong but if not i guess maybe i can think of a few more clues. on another note, i hope your project is coming along good, and hope to see it on the water soon.give up some specs on the engine if it is special....which knowing you i know it is going to be good!!!

I was trying for the 4th of July at Ute, but that was before
I deceided to bore and stroke it, maybe August.

Looking for a solid 900HP maybe a little less on pump gas, maybe it will run 75-80 :D

I have a ton of pics, will be starting a thread soon showing
what I have done.

I will be at Ute for the 4th of July with or without a boat.
My nephew is building a blower motor for my old openbow
it should run pretty decent

Outlaw, sounds like you are involved in a couple of fun projects.

Well, the Butte was very windy over the Memorial Day weekend but we were out running hard anyway. I did not catch up with as many people as I wanted, but we made some new friends and saw a lot of old friends. It was good to see everyone.

Man, there are some nice boats running around at the Butte these days...Performance boating is definately in full swing in NM...:D:D

Make that 3 fun projects, "Old Man" is working on his all original 76 Nordic
He just purchased my 502 and taking it to Sunset in Lubbock for some "upgrades"
he removed his pump and intake and had MPD do some work on it.
we should have it back on the water for Ute on the 4th of July also.

so it looks like I have a new Dart block to start my engine project with.

I will look for you at Conchas when I'm up there, I will be the one without the boat(this year)

I wanted to go over to Butte this year and meet some fellow boaters, but looks like
I will have to wait till next year.

I am here too, from Santa Fe.

You will see me mostly at the Butte. But I like to go to Conchas Lake, Ute Lake, and Abiquiu after it warms up.

I had some time to burn yesterday, and since I was in Loose Crotches
I ran up to the Butte, I will post some pics.

water levels up big time since I was there last, looked like the entire lake
was glass

there was a blue H2 in the ramp parking lot with a triple axle tunnel trailer
that had a Magic sticker on it but I never saw the boat.

Yes there is, it is going to be held the weekend of the September 14th & the answer to your second question is HELL YA!!!! Bring them down it would be awesome to see a couple of Skaters running around at the butte. Water level is the best it has been in over 10 years!

Feel free to email me at [email protected] and I can give you a bit more information on where to stay and so on...
