Anticipation, anticipation

Matt, I've been following your build for 5 years and I am on the edge of my seat to catch a glimpse (and a ride) of your beautiful boat in 34 days.

With garage space at a premium, I was forced to paint a couple of sections of cockpit floor out on the picknick table in the backyard. But now that nighttime cometh everything needed to come into the garage. So I had to stack everything up to dry overnight.

I got the hull ID# today. Should be possible to get it registered by the end of the week. What do you guys think of a splash Saturday!?
