A big Congatulations Wayne! She really does look fantastic. I bet it's an amazing feeling! Beware, I've heard some builders develope PBDS (post build depression syndrome) within as little as 3 months. But rejoice! A recent break through has indictated the fastest and most effective treatment is to build a Glen-L dingy! I think a Whitehall might be just what the doctor ordered...
Congrats again Wayne!

our 2nd day on the water.....boat performed well, a little oversteer, which I should be able to adjust out...3200 rpm, it seems to handle the best....I have to get my handheld gps to check actual speed. it seemed plenty fast in the channel going out to the gulf of mexico...quite pleased, it sets level in the water, right on the boot stripe....Wayne aka Flordia Boy
