Detailed Description

My mission when I bought the Rocket was monthly, solo work trips from DC to Tampa.  With the Monroy tanks and turbo I was able to make that trip nonstop in the high teens at 205KTAS at 19GPH.  Staying above the Florida pop-up thunderstorms in the summer and getting around icing was cake.  I enjoyed cruising above the NA traffic and below the airliners - made getting direct routing easy many times.  
When I bought the Rocket in 2021 it was already in fantastic shape.  Had just come out of an IRAN and TOH from a ground prop strike and had a brand-new MT 4 blade non-feathering prop to counter the nose heavy feel of that big Continental.  It had everything I wanted - new paint (2019), GAMI injectors, speed brakes, Monroy tanks (104 gal), on board O2 (115 cubic feet), yaw damper and more.  
Upgrades under my care include:
- JPI EDM 830 Engine Analyzer
- New windshield
- WAT LED lights all around (awaiting shipment of recogs)
- PS Engineering PMS-7000 Audio Panel with Bluetooth
Plan for this year was to upgrade the panel.  At the annual (November 2022) we started consolidating and moving things to make room for upgrades.   This plane has been coast to coast  - took it from Half Moon Bay to Ocean City MD - and all along the east coast.  
I've changed jobs and not flying as much as I used to for work and this beast needs to be flown.
