Craig, he had a great day. He's wore slap out. The center floor section is hinged. There are PFDs under there. And we have FOUR throwables since they were on clearance and we don't have upholstery yet.

Fantastic Matt! Congratulations on a successful first launch. Boat looks great and it appears to ride well when the water isn't too rough. I'm sure you'll get it dialed in as time does on. I'm not sure how you feel about it, but I look forward to all the questions almost as much as taking mine out for the run. Thanks for sharing the videos. Looked like a fun day.

Well done Matt! Many of my family's sweetest memories center around our time on the boat together. I know it is special to be out in a boat that you crafted with your own hands. I have enjoyed following your build. Great work and perseverance! Bob

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! It really means a lot.

Carl, I don't mind the questions. Who knows maybe somebody will get inspired and build their own.

Bill, he digs it. The windshield will help, he doesn't like the wind right in his face. We really had perfect weather today though and I didn't mind it at all. :lol:

Matt Very cool! Looks like a perfect day to celebrate all your hard work and dedication to get her on the water.

Not sure if I missed it above, does she have a name?

Thanks, Neel! That lake was a zoo yesterday afternoon and she handled it like a champ. I gave out long before the boat ever would have.
