Successful maiden voyage on Saturday at Hagg Lake approximately 25 miles outside of Portland, Oregon.

Top speed 27 MPH 17 HP Yamaha Outboard

Still need to raise the transom and adjust the trim to minimize porpoising.

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