I'm gonna take video when I get it wet as long as someone is with me. It's probably gonna be a handful to drive, but it will definitely get some attention! I'm hoping that the extra 150 lbs of gas and battery in the bow will help. At least iy will give me some tongue weight so I can tow it.

Holy crap! I had a 15ft Laser with a mean ass 140 on it I barrell rolled when the cable broke - it was a frikkin riot, lean while on the pad and it would turn ... then again sometimes it wouldn't ... my best friend swore he was sticking 3 handles on each side as it was going to kill me if I stayed in it....

Long story short it sank when I rolled it - then flew off the trailer on the way to get painted after the sinkin ... ended up sellin the motor and just givin it away - found a way to get in a real boat..... a job!! LOL!!

Be careful and send the vid!!

Well, tommorrows the big day! The boat is all rigged and running. I need to do a few thing yet, like putting on the motor skirt, finishing the rubrail, and changing out the steering wheel. The interior is a few weeks out. The motor is all rebuilt with new rings,etc. I don't think the fact that I can't hammer on it will matter much because it's gonna be outta control before the revs ever get too high. For now I just put a 28 Trophy on it. I'll get more pics and video tommorrow if I don't die first!

Here it is running and ready to go
