    Ayuh,.... Just the action of a runnin' a boat motor at 3000 rpms, is throwin' massive amounts of water into a flamin' 1,000 stream of exhaust gases,....

    Add local weather conditions, 'n seein' steam, Ain't all that outa the ordinary,....
    Any Grease is Better,... Than No grease at All....
