    So what are you testing for? Having done the putter break in I can assure you it is boring. Even my dealer was weighing doing the break in himself but then everyone would think they have a used boat. I say enjoy the ride work out your deal and worry the ride later.

    Search the boat for a “smell differential” (that still slays me – do a text search for more information).

    Function check the perfect pass (you are getting perfect pass –that is not a question).

    If you wonder why I am still in the bar, a large military contingent are here at some forced fun and getting out at 10 pm. I plan to buy a few drinks for the Air Force guys.

    My wife is headed to the room to watch a movie I have already seen with my son so I have a little time to kill.

    Where in MN do you live? I lived in Grand Rapids for 10 years.

    So what did they tell you about the break in period? Mine is almost up so it is a wash but I'm curious.
