Yes, Lacy is credible and does know his stuff. Probably forgot more than some have known.

His last name is spelled Everett. Doing a search will reveal his popularity, you can read all you want.

Lacey definatly knows his stuff! I have an 0-360 angle valve that he built a couple a years ago! I live in Texas! I have had it on two different hulls. The first hull was heavy and it ran good. The second hull is light and it runs like a scalded Dog!! Great engine with no problems ! Lacey is a great guy I wish I could meet him in person! :)

Lacey is Lacey,
Been building ac motors a loonnngggg time. Truthfully this country needs more people like Lacey theres no gray with him its either white or black, you know where he's coming from, no in between. You roll up in that driveway with junk he'll tell ya its junk, And if you got that motor tuned right he'll tell ya son you got that motor running good. He's a man of truth, alot of people nowadays can't handle the truth and he'll tell ya don't waste my time or your time. Well thats a short verison of Lacey, He's a good man.
AIRBOATS are like a good pan of gravy, they make it all good.

I met Lacey just a month ago. Old school type of man that has probably forgot more than most of us know. I drove up unexpected to his place and I called from the road to see if it was OK to come in. His first question was "Do you have a gun" lol Hope he doesn't mind me saying this but like many of the Old Timers he is having some health issues and needs to be in our prayers.
Like it has been said on here. He is going to tell you like he sees it.

I've never met Lacey but I have talked to him on the phone several times. I love the guy! Like already mentioned...If you don't want to hear the cold hard truth (the way only Lacey can tell it) then don't call him. And if you don't like MF, GD, SOB, etc...you'd probably better not call him :lol: . He's a damn good ole boy and there should be more like him.
