Overniter Launch

Post by indyillini » Mon May 20, 2019 6:47 am

After construction for 8 years, I was able to officially launch my boat over the weekend. I had some porpoising issues, which I was expecting due to weight distribution, but it was otherwise a perfect day and a lot of fun to enjoy the fruits of my labor. Still have to add a windshield and some finishing work, but it is officially a working boat!!!

Congrats on the launch! The boat looks great. Maybe I'll see you out on Raccoon some day this summer.

Congrats! Almost the exact spot on the same ramp I launched my Zip from 9 years ago! Looks like the perfect size boat for your family.
