Great looking boat :!:

Fine job on your build, those performance numbers with a 60 are outstanding. Hope you enjoy your new ride, I know you will.

That boat would be great for the winter rockfish 8) up here.

Very nice work.

I think that the trailer might not be balanced. Too much weight forward. Have you checked the hitch weight?

Dimitris-

No, have not measured the tongue load yet. However, the trailer does not load the Toyota at all and the trailer/boat tows great up to 50+ MPH.

The area where the picture was taken slopes downward towards the SUV which may make it appear as if the vehicle is heavily loaded.

Bill..I'm just curious as to where you launched. It doesn't happen to be at Shell Point, is it?

I'm asking, because I launch my OD16 - The Inshallah - there quite often and I'd love to have a look at your boat. It is absolutely gorgeous!

Congratulations.
