I know Biggus is often full of chit... is that why the boat is that high on the trailer, so as to keep it clean? Or is a 4WD trailer? Ya need to spread them bunks out a chine or two.

Great work.

Hope the beer was for the ride up the trailer.

She sure looks much better without the bottom paint! That's one nasty job isn't it? I've done it a few times before on a previous boat that stayed in the water. (NOT a go fast. ) Always went back with new paint so prep was easy. How did you get the shine back in the gelcoat?

Does not even look like the same boat. I was always sad when I looked over at that boat to see how she took care of it (or didn't). Glad it has found a new home and hope you enjoy it.

Awesome! Get you a bigger prop and gain some more speed!! Call Throttle Up. They may have a test prop you can try.
