Default Finally!!!!

First run in my 29'.......yippee!!!! Need to figure out why depth sounder isn't working though. Has power but won't register. Sensor maybe??? Anyways, the reason I dare post a thread about a bling bling beak boat in General is because I know some of you up north are about ready to explode and yall (that's southern for yous guys) have been asking for vids, so here one is. Ran it to 72 before I ran out of revs. I guess a labbed 28 isn't big enough, still had a quarter throttle left. I'm working with T.U. to get it dialed in but it was a lot of fun nonetheless and I'm very happy to be a part of this kind of boating. Extra bonus: I can even launch, dock and drive up on the trailer all by my lonesome at a crowded ramp Here's the vid, hit 72 right before he turns the camera foward........Enjoy!

Taking the turns very conservative, but I can't tell the difference yet with the step. Thought I would be sliding all over the place but that's not the case. Hope to get more "real" video soon!

I was going to go to that same ramp today. I wish I would have. I dinged my prop at Lake Beresford today as I was trying to back out of the ramp.
