Thanks guys! Yes I am very proud of it. It does scoot right along and we have already put it through some nasty stuff.

Right now I only have a portable tank in the back but I have to have a permanent tank built and it will go up front.

Boat is really looking good but it looks like you can put up to two seats in it?
Why no one uses the seats? :D

Yes there is a place for two seats. If I have two others with me, I will run both seats. If not I only run one so there is walking room
