Not on the Grand. 4 strokes only.

Unless you're a big concessionaire and then you can run e-tecs.

Yes, you are correct. 4 strokes have been required in GC for decades now...More of a comment about motorheads in general and the mention about Cat. Besides, I just like my 2 strokes better than my 4 strokes. They smell better Hope everyone has a blast on the flood, we don't have big water every year!

A really nice job on the video.

Many of us shoot the video but few take the time to organize, add music and all the best memory making images.

Thank You for sharing, many memories

Give Mr. yardsells some time to post some pictures, I have been out to the airport hangar twice, their S-rig is comming along beautifully. It looks like an aircraft carrier next to their J3 Cub airplane in the back 40, behind the hangar. It's going to be one slick S-rig.

Well. Here's a video clip. A little dramatic but... hey, it's a big freaking boat.

Dang! And I thought our 22' snout was cool. Dam! Your S rig is a SERIOUS motor rig! Wowza! Curious - the front half of the frame - what are all the cross bars for? Structural support or are those giant removable tables??? Or structural supports topped with removable tables? At 0:22 it looks like you've got full size 8x4 banquet tables ready to roll. Impressive setup!

Hi,

Nice looking rig. One quick comment/reaction.

On the J rigs I have seen, the transverse "weenie tube" was mounted down between the two big frame segments, to act as a hinge, rather than sitting on top them. What's the strategy here?

No criticism, just asking...
