Pat has known Chad Hill since childhood. His parents wouldn't let him play with Chad until they were in High School...they were afraid Chad would be a bad influence on him...They were right...

Here's Pat in Washington, NC. home of Fountain Powerboats, 1997...

No, this is Parker...Pat is in the hat...

Considering, I'll have to help on this project...I'm going to paint his boat ORANGE and name it ARCADIAN SPIRIT!!!!

1. Get the first house finished and get the new garage built.
2. Move into that house/ begin the remoldel on this house...
3. When the new garage is finished, lay up capsules in that garage.
4. Get organized....I'm thinking of building a 10,000 square foot building in Elsinore...that way we'd have a "RACE HEADQUARTERS"....if we get just a little more rain, Pro Marine will be back on the water...we can launch, test and race at his end of the lake...
5. I've been trying to "RUN DOWN" the HST molds...but Greg Foster has the GMT 20 molds...at this time, every boat builder Greg or I have talked with wants $500 per foot, which to us seems high...Our Epoxy man, who we buy epoxy for our prop molds, claims he has a "SPRAY ON" (Like bedliners) Epoxy/Carbon Fiber/Stealth Technology, that he has been making bumpers out of, that he thinks we could spray a boat's mold and make a one piece boat. To start a NEW MOD VP CLASS, with a Stoker, capsule and new 300..is $50,000......this will never happen... We need a rig under $20,000....and a V-6 with carbs and a $5,000 boat would get us there...
6. Greg has no problems with Divisions like I, II and III...to get the class going: Division One, new motors, Division Two, V-6 carbs only, Division Three, V-6 Carbs only, spec boat.... all boat to have capsules. about 1,450 pounds...
7. Pickleforks allowed but must have a bar between forks to prevent "Spearing"...

So, you still want to sign up???
8. Chad and I are making 45 SS midsections, saddle and clampbrackets..
9. Building 35-NOD boat for 35 HP Evinrudes/Johnsons
10. Building 60 NOD boat for 45 SS engines with foam blocks, Wiseco pistons...
11. POST on BRF
12. Make and sell props..

13. In my spare time, promote boat races...

Where you been hiding? Got the 380 running? Just came back form Jasper with Mike and Ronnie and Greg (not s&f).

Next marathon is probably October 2006, unless something can be put together sooner.

The race is in the Land of the Sun, AZ. Parker AZ. Bring the 380. Foster has one. It should be fun.
