Thanks WFT!!I suggest you get it the day it's ready. Otherwise it may be in for a test drive in Kentucky or wherever he takes them these days....:rolleyes:

Oh, and I'll try to take pictures while it being prep'd and not before with us trying it in the river...8p

Jus' kiddin' with ya, we won't take it to the river, too many logs afloat this time of year.

Hey, you can take it out... I just want you to follow proper break-in procedures! It would be so nice to get it back here and be able to ski right off the bat!

No problem, send it to Chicago MC care of Erkoehler. Make sure if we are going to break it in for you, you supply us with a gas card for at least 50 gallons in order to properly break it in. This will allow us to use the proper break-in fuel as well. And we won't be forced to put a fuel surge charge on your tab for our services.

Signed....Workin' 4 Toys....As agent for Erkoehler
