The boat has been pretty much put back together for around a month now. We have had some fuel/carb issues that we have been trying to get the bugs worked out on. Been slack on updating this thread, I will get some pics uploaded once I find the cord to my camera. Here are a few of it on the water.











Lee, I will give you a buzz this afternoon.
