Splashed today ! It floats and goes pretty fast with the 9.9. Just have to slow down when it gets choppy.

Hello

A small update. My quick and dirty build still floats ! I finally changed the trailer for a larger and stronger model, with waterproof lights etc., much better.

I wouldn't call that quick and dirty, the boat looks very nice.
Thank you for posting the pics.

It was a quick build but she turned out nicely! Happy boating!
