Been reading your department's "Nozzle Project", very, very good stuff. What has occurred since that would affect your results? Anything? We're developing plans to give 2 1/2" lines its proper place on our engines again, and I'm looking for the right argument to sway opinions about smooth bores as well. (By the way, the push for this started at the Seattle Convention class in '08)
Rob, It looks like the burns that we were looking for are not going to come thru. Do you have any plans on May 2nd and 25th? I will be back down in Ballard if you have time to stop by. I need to get and give some thoughts and updates on CAFS for us.
