So, I can make it to Arrowhead on one tank of diesel, less 2 gallons.  I carry 10 gallons with me, so I'll make it there.
I need another 25 gallons to make it home.  Please, everyone, bring me a 5 gallon can of diesel.  I will split the profit with you if I don't use it all.  



Thanks for reminding me.

You still own me for that 5 gallons of gas in Florida.

Mike was there!

I'm sad to say that Connie and I had to cancel our reservations today.  Engine overheated and caused some piston damage.  Going to take the block to a machinist to see if he can bore it out.  Will also need one (maybe 2) pistons.  If we can get it fixed in time, we'll try to get there for a day.  Will miss the visits with everyone.
If anyone needs a cabin, we were in #14 from Thursday to Sunday.

Ray, sorry to hear about that lower unit issue.  Frank Erion has replacement gears available for those units in both 15/15 and 16/21 ratios.

The 1/1 units seldom have gear issues.  Were the missing teeth still in the housing?  Maybe some previous owner cobbed the unit together.

I hate spell check......

Hey John,
Glad to say it wasn't the Merc Quicky lower unit, it was the OMC 35 HP lower unit that is mated to the 45 CI OMC Looper. It's no cheaper but there is a lot of them out there, I pulled one off a really great running 35 built by Joe McCauley so I'm going to be looking for a 78-83 35 HP lower unit, it's all good now ;-)

I always wanted a PowerCat for the Lake Erie chop that is thrown at me. And of course two Tower of Powers to go with it.





Bring something to tow it home, Joe is wanting to sell his!
