It's going to be really hard to get away from the launch ramp with all the people wanting to talk with you about your boat.

Really looking forward to seeing the picture of your smile while out on the water.

Great Job!

"Prolly Sync"... Hahaha I like your sense of humor.

I had considered "Miss Calculation" for mine.

She's a gorgeous boat, Joshua! From the pictures, it reminds me very much of Chris' boat. Absolutely beautiful.

Any chance she'll make it to the water this weekend? :)

I didnt realize you were actually in North Bend. I was there once about 4 years ago, beautiful area. Great name on the boat!

That's a good one!
Reminds me of the time at the ramp when a guy didn't set his brake correctly, got out of his truck, went back to his boat, and the whole works rolled down the ramp into the water truck and all.

What I wonder is....

Is the link to the boat ramp video a hint at a first launch??? :)

........Boom!
Sea trials! Got a bit of a late start but the lake was smooth and calm, with the exception of forgetting my bumpers/fenders hanging off the sides when i first left the dock (soaking the kids) everything functioned flawlessly, i brought a screwdriver to dial the carb but didn't touch it, the 1997 merc 25hp is a keeper!, stats are below.......
Boat weight...........roughly 900lbs.
Passenger weight (4).....540.4lbs.
WOT rpm..........5400 (outboard max 6000)
Top speed.........24-26mph

PERFECT!!!
