Enjoy he boat. Really great, and build in a record time. Congratulations.
How does Berkim handle?
We will visit Turkey this summer, maybe there will be an opportunity to meet and see Berkim for real.

Good Luck,

It's looking good!

When you get it trim, could let me know how much ballast you added to get it trim and where you had to put it. Not how much to get it sitting on it's lines, but just to get it sitting level. I'm curious about this and wondering why that is, both yours and yarvaz's sat this way. Don't know about Maca's because i didn't see it. I'm just wondering how much the extended pilot house roof, ss rudder, teak deck have to do with it. I didn't expect it to sit this high up front. High up on it's lines yes, but more level.
