I picked up a free Shinny 360 but she's gonna need a piston to become an ExPee Killah Lol
Maine? Where’s the lobster?
In the watah.
Didn't get a pic of the "Money Shot" in the race....but here she is returning from the finish line......LOL!! Don't know what the body count was aboard but she ran the race at about 40 MPH with all those folks aboard......she's in the 40 foot or more, 1000 hoss or more diesel class!! Bigazzed lobsta boat!!!
So many good pics....just a small sampling of other nice watercraft in motion....
Just the HP needed!!!!!!
Great pics Robin !!!
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.....
That camera takes some really nice pics .
Just muh phone.........but new iphone 10R....
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.
1989 F Two Fiddy
EFI 302 V8
5 speed standard
7.5 foot Western Plow with belt drive pump
Nice truck Robin
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!!!!
Yep , very good price too !
Was a little warm yesterday... plenty of shade in the middle or the road though.
Got hot here yesterday but not 98F.
Pffft , 98 , I could do that blindfolded chewing bubblegum walking backward smoking a cigarette while drinking a Budlight ,,, pffft .
But since I don't do any of that ,,,, Pffft , 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......
