Overniter Launch

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.

Quick update for peoples information. I added the self leveling Bennett Trim Tabs and it made a night and day difference. I am now able to cruise with the family at 25-30MPH without the porpoising issues that I had, even on pretty crowded lake days. It was the best $100 investment and really worked out great. I also added a windshield and permanent boarding ladder. I am probably overpowered with the 90HP as I could get 43mph in it by myself with still some throttle left, but it is better to have too much power rather than not enough.
