Time for cheerleading!

Post by yobee » Sun Feb 13, 2011 7:30 pm

Took my new boat out for it's shakedown run today, time for some shout outs!
Dusty Brewster decided it was time to part with his old boat, so I picked up the pieces and threw some of my stuff on it, so thanks to him for that one!

Al David for building badass "Performance Airboats"! Al also hooked me up with his NGH prop second hand which helped me out.

Dantheairboatman for being the man. He was getting me some blades on the way, but I couldn't pass up the deal at performance airboats, so a big shout to Dan for that.

Gary Barber at OUTLAW Aircraft! What's an outlaw boat without an outlaw engine right? Gary hooked me up with a fresh 0-470 straight from the plane. Gary hooked me up a few times in the process of getting the continental running and I'll be happy to do business with him again! Ready to go run some hogs with him too!

Nomad41 (Bob) hooked me up with a nice batch of Faria gauges and sending units, Bob I dont care what everyone says about you, you're alright! :D

Charter Lakes has got me insured right, in case I decide to drive off a bridge or something :shock: !!

Rj (AV8R040) came and timed my mags for me too!
My buddies "Critter" and Chris hooked it up with some wrenching and wiring too.
Hope I didn't leave anyone out!
