Your boat looks great! I know you must be thrilled. You are going to make some great memories going forward.
You will always remember the hard work you put into building your own boat, with a deep sense of satisfaction!
Enjoy!

One of my favorite designs from here and you did an awesome job! I bet she will scream with that 50.

Got out today and put another couple hours on the motor. I will say i am very happy with the way the boat handles, we rode her in some chop and boat wakes and she handled like she should no slamming, a nice sea motion. Great design Mr. M.. I do need to go up a pitch on the prop, i was at 27 knots and hitting the rev limiter with some throttle left, that's with 4 people and some gear.
Headed for the eastern shore of VA tues to target flounder, sheeps, spanish, and maybe a cobia, got my spear sharp and my dive flag as well, wish me luck.
