Hey Dougster,
Just tried a Photobucket link, says they are doing site maintenance right now. You look like you're close to splash. :D

Dougster you should be very proud of your SK, it looks fantastic. Can't wait to see it on the water and get your performance thoughts.

Thanks for the good cheer folks. Special thanks to you Richard for posting the pics. And hello John, good to hear from you! A nice, probably last of the year little cool front rolled in over night. I'm enjoying a cup of cool front coffee, then going down to the shop and put her on the trailer. Finishing is bittersweet, as I took my time and truely enjoyed the build. I'm hoping for a Monday launch and an empty launch ramp :D Gotta read the trolling motor manual. The thing is a computer. You drive it from a remote control hung around your neck 8O I'll have good low tech kayak paddle on board too 8) We'll see.

Looks like you Dougstered it up real nice! (that's using the updated definition of Dougstering, meaning well done)

Thanks Pee Wee, but I can still old school Dougster things. Happily not on the trailer transfer though. Here she is ready to sit down:

Home on the trailer.

Jeff---splashing on Mon or Tues, that's the plan. Re: weight, I dunno. I think I'll try to calculate it with that trailer method of measuring the tongue weight with the boat in two different places on the trailer and using the moment equations, which I don't remember. Seems like Jacques posted a link to it recently.
