Probably a really stupid question, but since I don't know how many boats Tahiti Mike has... is that a Tahit?

Also oddly enough, I like the smell of engine degreaser. This is going to be another informative thread by Tom and the rest of the family at Jet Boat Performance. I'm looking forward to it. Thanks.

That's the quote 82 Daytona got... Depending on where Dave finds himself down the road a little ways, I may or may not be asking/paying for some help from you boys up north.
