    Congrats to the new owner. If I had the bank that boat was #1 on my list. Maybe when the current buyer is done with it I will be in the position to buy it.

    I just want to say a BIG thanks to Mark for all his help and hospitality .. When we first arrived in Grand Haven the Chief was turn-key and ready to go. Although I havenít seen the Chief for a couple of years other than pictures.. Mark and Mike kept the Chief looking like factory new. When we splashed the Chief in the old Lilly-Pond, (only kidding guys) I laid down the throttles, and thatís when all the fun begun..

    The Chief rode as Great and fantastic as ever. What a rideÖ.

    One thing I did noticed, The Chief was a little paleface and in need of some sunshine.. So eventually the Chief will be heading to Miami for lots of fun in the sun..

    Thanks again Mark for all your help..

    The only thing I don't like about that boat is the fact that it isn't Mine.............

    I hope they have my address for the delivery.

    Congrats to the "real" owner. We will see the Chief around.

    The engines were in shipping crates, waiting for Pompi to design the mounts for them the last time I saw the boat.
