thanks Gayle, I chose this one as it looks different from most others.

Used the one part Interlux paint. I used this paint because it is carried nearby.

There is no problem with the paint itself, I am just not good at painting.

Tuffy Launched

The boat has been in the water. Never sank, never took on any water so I going to say it was a success.

With my 25 with a busted up prop speed was showing at 26 knots.

Boat seems to handle well and hold a line. There was some smooth water a bit of chop and a couple wakes from big cruisers which we were able to handle without problem.

There is still a number of things to do but it was too nice.

Congrats! That boat has great lines and am surprised not more of them are built.

Fantastic job! :D :D :D :D :D

Would love to see some video when you get a chance for another boat or drone to shoot some.

Thanks, it was a good couple runs. The kids were not huge fans of the wake from that cruiser, but they toughed it out to get to the bakery.

I will try and get some pictures of it in motion next trip.
