OMG!!!!! J/K no date stamp on the pics so that's porobaly his maiden voyage in the ER. :poke

Now the last 3 pictures seem to indicate unusual boating technique. Approaching the dock, he runs to the stern/engine area? Veers away from dock? Looking under dash?

Hope everything is good Dan and Congrats!!!! :letsdrink

Yea well everything that starts off well doesn't always end that way and had nothing to do with the last pics Scott. Ran a break-in cruise in the bayou for a little over an hour and everything was good till I got greedy and headed out into the bay for some higher speed break-ins. Cleared the rock jetty out of Navy Pt. and let her eat. Man this thing jumped out of the water and took off like a bat outta hell! (definately need to install the new tabs!) Bay was king of snotty but not to bad due to north wind when motor developed a ticking sound when I backed it down. Don't know the cause yet,maybe lifter,bearing,something but it ain't good. Did hit 45mph on the gps before shutdown,do gonna have to reprop to hit 60 but I think it will do it no problem. Guess its back to the ole drawing board. :banghead Got some video if I can figure out how to post it.

bonita dan, glad to see the old girl back in the water, i always enjoy your boat trials and tribulations, do you think she might just need the valves relashed?

The OLE Fast Pirate.

Bonita Dan congratulations on getting back in the water. I know the feeling, the excitement is just as strong as the first time. I think you are gonna have to keep a few things on the Elbow Room for the cause.

1. Meatloafs CD "Bat Out of Hell"

2. A " Go Speed Racer Gooo" On the side of the boat.

3. Gonna have to install some 5pt. safety harnesses also.

4. Box of Kleenex , these will help keep your eyes dry. For the ones that don't bring thier racing goggles.

Hope all works out well. I was thinking about the ticking you referred to hearing while/after backing down. Maybe is just your imagination, Your ears may have still sounded like your cheeks slapping back and forth on your jaw.
