So Pat says........
« on: August 12, 2015, 01:10:42 pm »
So Pat calls me last night. One of quite a few ( I won't name names Mike) over the last year or so, and I appreciate each and every one of you! Know this! And I don't think i've ignored any of You.

Reason it hit me is, yeah, I haven't been on the site or even Facebook for, what? 2 years (according to Pat..........and we KNOW he's a math genius.........)

Honestly, didn't realize it or time it. Two businesses, running all over Phoenix and Tucson and everything in between.......Got the "Sewer Pickle" still that we last ran at Big River 3 years ago......my lone survivor of all the floats I broke (Or burned, sold or/and sank). Happens to be Olds 455 powered, but the silly thing JUST WON'T BREAK!!

Anyway, Pat brings up the "Woodgrain Wonder" and we had a good talk for a couple of hours. At the end of which we decided we're going to do Big River before the end of the season. So I'm taking a "sabbatical" and making this happen sometime in September.

Going to fly my oldest daughter, and my grand daughter, in for this from North Carolina. The state with the highest deportation rate........Anyway, Becca and RJ probably wont be there, they're in college now.....explains my finances.....and we all know the little kids are the ones we have the most fun with anyway!

Right now, I've got a rare lull. Storms last night knocked out power to the shop, and I've got a window here with 5 trucks sitting outside. Pat, among many things we call him, is timing. As I told Pat last night, best thing about him is his wife.  I'm sure I'm gonna get punched for that eventually, but it's true. Worst part is, I gotta pick where I get it.

Any of you new to the SoCal group, know this if nothing else. You re dealing with the most knowledgeable and helpful group of people on the planet! Now, not to say we don't mess with each other........we do.......regularly.......don't misinterpret that stuff. Like the time HDRider told me a needed a "Carb Reverse Kit" for my tunnel ram.........3 phone calls to Summit and Jegs.........I realized he was mesin with me. All documented here. Talked to him last week. We don't hold grudges!

At Any rate, and far too late......Pat says "sell everything and get an outboard"........

Phuck him.......

That's my Moo! A little optimistic on price tho. I'd be hard pressed to go 3 grand knowing I'm changing the engine anyway.

I know what I sold her for, and regretted that but needed the money. two grand or so, he keeps the motor. Don't need another 460 here...............

Guy ain't lying either  phucking  boat is FAST......even with a standard 320 horse 460 in it.

Note to self......we were thinking of wrapping the ugly thing in UHaul orange decal. I think we need to keep it the Woodgrain Wonder.........

If nothing else, it pisses Pat off, HA!

Hey Ray!  Yup Moo is for sale.  It's sad, but haven't taken her out much, just twice this season.  And the
storage fees are killing us.  Moo still runs great, I suppose the carb reverse kit has helped a lot.
