    Dad installed a Dan Olson oil pan
    Vacuum pump.
    we re cleared the top half as it was looking sad when we did it long ago.
    i will get pics of the progress and show the whole boat soon as it goes along.
    Maggies Upholstery done the interior several years ago along with Scotties seats and if any of you have seen there work its some top notch shit imo

    Special thanks to Tiger for all the help and caring about Dad getting back on the water.

    well i have ranted enough just excited for Dad!

    nothing at all.

    it is Brand new with Dyno time only.

    it dynoed 861.7 at 6700

    that was with out the Olson pan and Vacuum pump

    i would say she is a good solid 850?

    we talked to SSRE and they said she was built to spray the hell out of,LOL!!

    so dad is going to spray a whooping 150 on top of her

    i think with the changes Tiger made and the new set-up with more power than she has ever had

    Dads eyes are gonna look like this

    thanks guys.

    Default Boat or bikes?

    I'm jealous of either! Don't have bike- and boat is still not ready. Have no idea what's up with my intake. Guy I sent it to hasn't responded to PM or text. Last I heard was few weeks ago - he'd ship after weekend and give tracking #.

    Now - crickets...

    Yall b safe and have fun whatever y'all do!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone again on the water!!!!!
