Ok, I'm done sanding :) I spent much of the day sanding and polishing the paint. I added boat name stickers. This is of course a work boat :lol:

1977 engine? Looks just like my (except bigger).

That many ponies and the pitch on that prop tells me that you boat will SCREAM across the water! :shock:

I stopped by the WA state licensing agency today. It seems that all I have to do to register the boat is to fill out a value form and a hull number request form. No inspection, no proof of value or cost...just whatever I would like to say it is worth. The total forms took less that 4 minutes to fill out, add a little cash and I will be good to go. Wow!!!

Trailer is almost as simple, but does require an inspection by State Patrol.

Looking add fuel and test fire engine this weekend :D

What is the metal plate on the outboard for? I`ve been wondering about it for a while.

Aluminum plate on outboard is for cable steering system. I will post photos of that soon.

Looks awesome! ...and REAL fast!

Well done!

It's cool to see one of the more 'non-typical' hull types completed. I enjoyed follwing your build.
Can't wait fo rthe performance report. :shock:
