Sort of launch today - the outboard had some issues at mid- to full throttle so a couple of short loops at about 1/2 speed then back to shore was it.

Looks good! You seemed pretty steady after you got on your feet. :wink:

Post another video when you get the motor worked out...

What are those black blocks (I assume some sort of weight) holding the internal frame components in place?

Thanks!

Those are weights salvaged from an old weight lifting machine. The plastic covering keeps them from scratching or gouging the wood surface and they interlock so stacking them is easy.
