HaHa,  yes Princeton. The guy is kind of a knucklehead. Looks like I'm ending up with a 41' Aluminum Roamer, too. Wasn't planning it but its working out that way. I'm up in your neck of the woods via river a couple of times a year. Where do you dock?

Chris,

I hope things are well.  I did not see that either you or David Lorimer (Dolphin) made it to Dubuque this year.  Small turnout too.

I may have asked you this once before.  Too many beers ago.  We put 454/330 in our 35.  Do you recall what props you had on yours and the RPM/MPH you ran?  I am only getting around 3500.  I have 3 blades that came from a mid 80's CC360 which is a heavier boat with the same power.  If you recall what you had let me know.  Using the 42?

Mike
