Launched GV13 on May 21

Very happy with boat - stable and fun - Still breaking in motor
Plan to use on Chesapeake Bay to fish and cruise
This forum and advice was invaluable and thanks to all your help in this build

This is the start of the build - ALL the plywood for the hull is cut and stacked on the grill - hard to believe this turned into boat

Beautiful boat. Greta job. The boat I'm building for my brother is also headed to the Chesapeake. Love the bright finish on the topsides. Enjoy!

Yes, the finish looks - adequate.

OK, I'm kidding. Very nice work. I really like the black console. Sets off the other wood nicely.

Keep it covered from the sun!

Sharing a picture of first fish caught on boat - caught about 25 more rockfish about same size
and
boat on trailer

Put over ten hours on boat and it is performing well - pulled boat for ten hour engine service
I am adding Bennett SLT 6 trim tabs to hopefully reduce porpoising - if I put weight in bow it goes away

May be back for additional advice on porpoising issue if trim tabs do not eliminate
