Thats a nice piece of machinery!!!! I love the interior, especially the custom removable metal fold up rear bolster. Those are nice, the high x dimension suggests that this is a high speed kilo time runner. I also really like the reflective lenses on the transom, I think all high speed powerboats should be required to have a set of those.

It may be overpowered for some, but not in the hands of a trained professional. Don't try this at home kids.

The 302 is primed and ready. If we get any good weather tomorrow, we may take it for a spin.

Guy called today who's been working on my Donzi. He said the engine was in, and he was going to sea trial it today. He was supposed to call me back, so if it was all good, I could drive there tomorrow and pick it up. I haven't heard back from him. Doesn't sound like a good sign.

And as usual, ol' reliable, my fishboat, is always ready.
