Futs and many other fellow PB forum members met today at the Avi Resort. The turnout was approximately 50 boats.

For those that don't know, Futs runs a 1979 Southwind Tunnel Dragster. When I asked him what was the make/model/engine;
he said have you ever been to PerformanceBoats.com? Its all over the forums.

He indicated that I must be an idiot but I just told him that I don't visit the forums very often. Shortly thereafter I introduced
myself which was funny to me. Not sure if it was funny to Futs.

Our fathers have a long history between Sundown Marine and Southwind Boats which his dad owned.

Nice meeting you today.

I wanted to shoot your boat but when I walked by you guys were all set up. I am sure ******* got some pics after
you were done with the "feast". I am sorry I didnt get a chance to introduce myself. I didnt realize how many forum
members were down there yesterday.

It's all good. All the credit for my boat goes to smartass, futs, and their pops, all I did was put a tiny motor in it.

It was good meeting you face to face. Sorry if i came off alittle harsh, just was still working off the skull cramps from the night before...:D

My Grandfather owned southwind boats, my dad just worked there as well as my mom.

The motor is a 548 pump gas deal and makes 800 hp. It was running spectacular This weekend. Made a few changes to the boat and all worked alot better than i could hope for!!

Shoot me that pm again and we will hook up with what ever info and stuff you want to get together.



PS, the weekend was off the hook!! Met alot of new people and hung out with some old friends. Some didnt make it that said they were, but it was still a great turn out and a blast all around.!!!
