    Thumbs up WFO in da house!!!!

    Rode one of Rich's built skis this weekend and was very impressed!!!!

    Non ported 05 with his usual bag of tricks running in excess of 76
    mph all weekend!!! This is with a 1200 grate set up for turning and having "FUN"!!! Not one single hickup in 300+ miles of riding three days straight!!

    This boat would easily run into the high 78s with an 800 grate and loose like most of you girls ride.

    Hats off to ya bro and good luck with your new venture!!

    Rich, if your thinking of moving, the northeast is a great place to live and full of skis needing your touch. I was going to move somewhere near you(backyard/garage) but when I asked Uncle Sam he said no so I figure this is my next best chance at getting your tuning skills close. Just some food for thought.

    Rich isn't going anywhere!! He is just going to do his favorite thing full time.

    After seeing several of his boats and the quality of his work I have no doubt he will be very successful.

    No, Rich isn't going anywhere. Just my attempt at a little humor. I wish he were though.

    Thanks guys. Nick's boat was in need of some attention... tunnel cracked big time, rock wedged between the prop and wear ring, transom plate hanging down, cracked turn nozzle, blown head gasket, stripped head bolts, 200+ hr bottom end, 100+hr top end. I have a lot of time in his boat.

    Yes, I really do enjoy this stuff. I quit my daytime job so I can work on boats full time . Not going to move anytime soon.
