At the risk of sounding like a wuss I will say that I am ready for fall to roll around & some cooler weather to move in....

However I did drop off a few peices to a buddy of mine for alittle Tig work earlier this week.. I'm kinda at a bit of a stand still untill I get that stuff back which should be any day... Then its back to grinding & laying a bit more glass...

I hope everything is going well with the splash today !! I know its always a great feeling after all the hard work , $$$ & time that goes into a build... I will be anxious to hear how she ran...

I made them out of 1/8" stainless plate. Probably overkill but I knew I was going to be dragging the tabs in the rough. Thought they would help disperse some stress. Plus I had the material just laying around

I got to use the tabs some yesterday in the Chesapeake bay. It was pretty flat in the bay but the boat "felt" better dragging them some. I saw 72 on GPS at 5000 rpm with a stock 26 Bravo. With a few more rpm's and some prop tweaking I should be able to see 75 easy. The boat handled great. Launches off wakes flying straight with soft landings. Running in the open bay was a blast.
