Sorry to hear about your boat.

Regarding your facebook page?

It says you are a "machineing center operator"

Machining has no E. Sad when you can't spell your job.

Was at the motor shop today.

Heads are done.
Block was bored over .02 and the new bearings are installed waiting on the pistons to arrive from fedex.
Then they can reassemble.....hopefully I can pick it up at the end of the week.I'm so ready to put this nightmare behind me .

Are you going to put it away for the season or at least go for test ride...i winterized.....I am so sorry it happened when I was there... there's a raw water flow sensor I am researching... its up a bit in this thread...sounds like a good idea for our waters....what happened to your boat and a probability of picking up a baggy the raw water skupper has me a bit overly worried...

Can't wait to get a tow behind the yellow x2 next season... we'll have to stop at the pub under the I-55 bridge for a good reason this time....
