Default Boat is finally running!!!

I have a thread in the rebuild section, but figured I post a quick video in this section. Have to put the hatch on now that the first run went good. Kept it off to look for leaks and anything out of order.

Thanks for all the help I've gotten from so many of the members from this forum!! I could not have built this boat if it weren't for all the great resources and people found on this site!!!


Just a short clip of the boat at the dock from our trial run yesterday.

Congrats Craig. It's great that you got it going. I'm glad that I was able to help with the late night phone calls. Good luck at the 200.

You would be surprised. I used to have a member here call me several times a week at midnight or later. He would sound surprised every time when I would answer the phone and would say "I can't believe you are still at the shop working". To which I would say, "if you didn't think I would be here, you wouldn't have called. It was nice to have someone to talk to late at night. It gets boring sometimes by yourself. He lives on the west coast, so it wasn't that late for him.

Craig called me a few times around 10:30 or so. If I'm not at the shop, I have it forwarded to my cell so anyone can reach me anytime. If you call at 3 am, I'm sure I'll answer Just don't call at like 8am, cause I'll be sleeping. I don't do mornings very well.
