That is great my calculators showed a speed over 32 mph with that prop, so it did a little better. YAHOO!!! Where you able to raise it much?

Very good looking. Guess you already know it looks better on the water! :)

Congrats, Travis --you should be justifiably proud. Where did you place the fuel tank and store the Yeti?

Travis,

Been following your build. Great job and awesome rig which you completed in record time. 34 is moving in that thing.

Congratulations,
