Today that changed.
Pete Jordan is the real deal. Marine Chief Engineer Motor & Steam any horsepower, Pete is something like Scotty on the Starship Enterprise -- he will make the engines run, even if he has to go down to the Vulcan surface and mine the DiLithium crystals himself.
"I'll get it running alright...it may not be pretty, but it will run."
