I am not ashamed to admit a both visual and audio tickle in the shorts. Not quite sure of the application opportunity, but some skipper would grin large to show it to you.

Great find Carl.

Yeah, but will it stay together, and for how long. I can say one thing, either someone owns a chroming shop or is VERY good friends with someone that does.

Good Morning,
K1W1, notice that nobody in the second video appears to be wearing hearing protection. I suspect THAT'S why somebody said "crank it up" with the music. Hmmm...there IS a boating connection.
The soundtrack (what little of it there is ) is Tom Petty. Refugee is from the Heartbreakers second album "**** the torpedoes".
Peter.
PS: The "Heavy Iron" sound puts my twin Lehmans to shame but I love 'em all the same.

Wow, the 7 deadly words program doesn't descriminate even in a title. Think the albumn would have sold as will with "Darn"? Those are some darn big motors.
