She floats
We took her out today.... 60 hours... Man there were a ton of ducks and geese around... Otter was not a big fan of bird watching

Nothing like the north wind pushing snow at your back, a bird in your hand, and chessie with ice on his coat at your side.

Congratulations! You don't mess around. When you say you are going to build a boat you get after it!

Congratulations, Phil !


So she floats...does she "go", too?


Happy with her handling? Any surprises?


All the best,

I was a little surprised how much she squats in the stern. The being said, it didn't change when I get in it. I need to adjust the cavitation plate as it wants to pop out of the water at speed. I might play with the prop too. I got 16 mph out if it with me and and Otter in it. And the same when Sarah joined us.

I just need to get wire shelving for the flip down blind... And get a lot of grass...lol

Do you have a sketch of your blind doors? I'm needing to put some on my Black Brant III. Good looking rig you have!

Grace and peace,

Boat looks great. I like the flat front deck, it looks like you could load a wheelchair right off the dock.

That will hide great with a touch of grass!

More than likely Tod is thinking ahead for when Sarah is tasked with getting your sorry butt on onto the water.
When are you wanting to install that water pump? Remind me again the make and model, please.
