    Break my motor event

    Hi to all,
    Just wanted to say to all that I had a great time, except for the part where my motor broke (twice). It is funny that the motor decided to break during this event. That motor has over 100 hr since I built it without any problems. For those who don't know, here is what happened. While taking off from a stop I heard a very loud metal on metal noise as well as a drop in power. The problem: Broken rocker arm stud. I replaced the stud on Sunday thinking that all would be fine. Put the boat in the water and about 10 min later, another stud breaks in the same fashion. After careful inspection, I have determined that the studs were not the correct length (too short by about 1/4 inch).
    Thank you Jefe for the tow on Sun. Also, thanks for the ride Phillip on your black 22 classic. I got to drive Phil's boat, and it is WAY different than my Hornet.
    Again, I had a great time and thanks to all. Hope to see yall on the lake soon. I'll have the Hornet fixed in a couple of days.

    Way too funny Lee. The name is Steve. And that black 22 Classic is a Blackhawk. And yes, it probably handles much different than a Hornet, or any other boat actually. It was great to meet you. Unbeknownst to every one there, the Blackhawk had a performance problem. The boat would not get over 3,000 RPM's, and no one ever seemed to notice. I never had the boat in to the power curve and it would still get up and cruise.

    And the event was a blast. It was great to meet Donzi people in my own backyard that I did not know existed.

    Looking forward to the next event.

    Steve

    Y'all get to planning.... my summer is filling up quickly. Weekends of April 13 & 27, May 25, July 4, July 27 already spoken for, and I guess I need to run some Reel Deel trips in there from time to time. Mid-June is best for me as the later is summer we go I WILL be offshore chasing Tuna.

    That said, I'm just one guy... set it up, If I'm not otherwise engaged, I'll be there with bells on.

    I wouldn't put it past me to get married....but I'd have to re-start the search for Mrs. Right #4..... a search that is very much on hold at this time Actually Shea, Shea.... I was going to ask you the same thing???

    Looks Like the BOAT Club has taken up May-17-18 with their Poker Run.... usually a pretty good time, and since I've disowned most of my crew from previous runs, I'm on the search for suitable replacements if anyone is interested!!! (No, Shea... I didn't disown you... calm down)
