"Mooch" is Commissioned
Jim, our first rate mechanic, and Peter, his loyal student, ran the sea trial of our new engine today and we are so pleased to announce we can keep up with you fast boats now! First Edition easily exceeds seven knots, and this is at only 2200 rpm! As many of you know, most mechanical objects on board First Edition receive names. I chose Jimmy, after our master mechanic, but Jim insisted we use his old nickname. How excited am I that it turned out to be "Mooch"---perfect!
So, Mooch will take us to many corners of the world. We are delighted with him.
