Default First Time Out

Finally,

I was able to get the 357 to the lake. I purchased a month ago but work and other plans have kept me away. The morning started out rainy but no lightning so I hooked up and went to a small local lake. My father joined me and snapped a couple of pics. I now have a list together of everything I want to fix before I take the family out on a larger lake. I was able to get just over 66MPH with a handheld GPS at 4900RPM turning labbed 26P 4 blades. I have one trim tab not responding and that probably bled of some speed. Here are a couple of pics...
