Now who was the NUT that suggested a Nitro System...No way man that boat at 65mph is scary enough for me. I made some pipes to hook onto the fin of the engine to throw a rooster tail but I think they need to go deeper as I was not getting much spray out of them. I know once upon a time I read on Scream and Fly or somewhere about taking pipes and installing them on the bottom of the boat for the hell of it to have some fun and make a fancy rooster tail. Mine hooked to the engine fin were not quite deep enough to pickup the water good. So I might mess around yet and see what I can do for the fun of it.

My young buddy Jon Patton is coming along with me so I am trying to see if he can leave Thursday night and we can get there friday morning. Anyway waiting a word from him.
