July 30th Okeechobee Test and Tune

Post by BlowInIt » Sun Jun 19, 2011 1:27 am

Lance came out on top, so it's only fair. :salute:

Its 4 weeks after the NARA race so everyone should have ample time to tight'n things up!

Hopefully this date works for most people. Let's keep this shiet going!

Well if it don't work for him, he can set a new date. Gotta make sure the Crown is available for sure. I cant be waiting some multiple months bull shiet to go stretch out the new rig and see just what she will do. :toothy7:

If this date works for some people with fast boats to come out and Tune what the hell is the problem. It's a hour in a half ride for me, I just want to see where I stand, it's still six weeks away. :twisted:

Are you going to have the new boat at Lake George Bronson?If so there is always a little TNT at the end of the day.Nothing spectacular but always a good time.There should be someone there for you to see where you stand.Most of them guys are just on motor though,no bottle.

Man, Im not sure I can have it done quite that fast. The Metal is getting started Thursday, it may be completely done by Sunday, if so I should have it ready. I left all the wiring Completly in tact, and I am spray bombing all the metal with Rustoleum Satin black.... so it may be possible. If not we have a couple skiffs and Jeff's pontoon either way. I will see ya there for sure, you cant miss the little 8' clown boat with a monster out board doing sub marines and willy's and shiet.

Bronson before you spray bomb it. Go to tractor supply and buy the tractor paint. Its like $28.00 a gallon and it holds up really good. i have painted some trailers and riggins with it. i think by the time i bought the paint thinner and hardner it was like $50.
Just bring it!!
