    LOL!! You almost the the salt can't ya John??!!! As you can see it was a near perfect day for the event....all but a couple of these boats are daily working lobsta boats.......some of the diesel engines cost over $100,000.00 with the reduction gear/clutch.....averages work out to 'bout $100.00 per hoss......that's not counting the boat, rigging and 'lectronics.......you know that's a lot O' bugs to HAVE to catch!!!!

    Yep that black boat' "Gold Digger" was wicked impressive diesel boat......he had it turned up to the point that by the sound alone you couldn't tell the difference between it and a big block raced up gas motor at red line.......he ran out at about 51 mph....phew.....'membah........this a basically a one mile drag race......the fastest of these boats have to run at 120% of full throttle or over, for a minute and a half more or less.....not quite the same as an 6-8 second 1/4 mile run.....then they have to go haul 800 traps the next day and the other 800 the day after that.....then the first 800 again on Wednesday....and on and on.....

    So.......new to me truck arrived at the shop on Friday......came in on a car carrier in a no start condition. Purchased it from my friend 'Nadian Peeet. He had owned it about a month and a half and had real trouble keeping it running. One of it's running moments he brought it to the shop to drop off the plow as he had no space at his rental for it. It seemed to run good......no noise or smoke at start up.....302 V8...and he drove it to St Stephan and back....burned no oil etc. Then it started acting up and not starting so he threw money at it....new battery, coil, ECM relay, external fuel pump and filter etc. Peeet is not at all handy with wrenches so had to hire this all done.....they got it running and he was pleased until he left it in the driveway a couple daze and then it would not start again. We had discussed me perhaps buying it when it was running as he has no use for a plow truck and I been looking for a decent, inexpensive one. He wanted 3 grand, a month or so went by then when it quit this time he threw his hands up and said "2 grand and it's yours.....get it the FXXX outta my driveway!!" So I did. Took me a couple hours to locate the problem.....corroded fuel pump relay connection...cleaned that all up removing the green shemph and she starts perfect now. It stihl has some drive train issues to deal with but overall good solid unit...especially considering the year and being a Maine truck...new tyres etc.

    Specs....
    1989 F Two Fiddy
    EFI 302 V8
    5 speed standard
    95,000 miles
    7.5 foot Western Plow with belt drive pump

    Fer a Ferd........thing is I have a 1990 F450 in stock for any cab/interior front clip related parts......so it kinda made sense....$2,000.00 don't take ya very far in todays truck world.......would have to pay close to that for the used plow!!!!

    PUH.....LEEEEASE!
    98°?
    It's still that hot here now, and it's after 8 pm.
    Robin, that is a nice truck sir.
    Got a 95 F one fiddy 4 x 4.
    Hard to kill. Few simple electrical fixes, and tend to the front suspension, and you'll be fine.
    Aint gonna win the drag races, but it'll start and move when the others have PMS and won't.

    Dancan, why would you EVEN drink a butt light? Thats not even beer. Youve been lied to......
