Lmao! Thanks but don't swell my head up anymore than it already is Kyle :lol: :lol: Don't feel bad about you not being able make it cause as you have seen between the mud and the grass that's like riding in super glue it sticks a lot of boats that run good. Your new setup should do good out there...

Heck yea !

The passenger even had him a "flip phone" toward the end of the clip. A lot to be said for a simple DD rig and a big old wide prop. That was the best bang for the buck back in the day.

In the early 90s Mr Branch was getting good running take out 500 engines for $100 at the U-Pull It. No body wanted them but a few for RV conversion, Rat Rod builders or an airboater.
