The Red Pearl is launched

Post by denbrlr » Tue Sep 06, 2011 6:45 pm

This might sound stupid but as long as I have been posting on this forum in the small outboards area I didn't realize the Launching Ramp forum existed until yesterday. I guess I was supposed to post launch information here. I know some of you have already seen most of these pictures and videos but for the others...here goes. More pictures and videos are available on my "Another TNT build" thread in the small outboards forum.

Here are the specs: TNT, 1990 25 HP Mercury, 32 MPH (before some planned tweaking :))

Few things in the world measure up to the thrill and satisfaction of boating in a boat that you built.

Thank you everyone. We are sure having a lot of fun with this boat! :)

It has been said by many but I will say it again. For all those currently working on a boat, keep at it. I know sometimes it seems like you will never finish but you will. Then you will splash :D :D :D :D :D It is an incredible feeling to ride in a boat that you built - it is great! :lol: :lol: :lol:
