Tach was easy in mine. Took about an hour or so. Pretty accurate, I spin mine about 6000 rpms

Some pics from the Memorial Day W/E debut attached.

I lifted it off the trailer and re-designed the whole bunk setup on the trailer as well as replaced the rollers.
-Made two new side combing panels from scratch.
-Picked up new prop and fuel tank.
-Roughly 10 passes via buffer and hand with compound, Leverage Oxidation Remover, 3M, and Leverage Polish.

I bought it just for the Mattaponi River which is right in front of our house. I might bring it to JOTJ; either Mark's place or Jordan Point.

With that, Mark's jet boat and his mini bike, we should all have a great time.
