My FIrst Run - FINALLY!!!

Postby Bill Yonescu » Tue Nov 18, 2008 6:43 am

Sorry I didn't get to run her at the Gathering... but I did get to run her yesterday.

I'm still smilling Ear to Ear , and a bit further - :D :D

I didn't get to video the actual run but here's a video of some of it.

The place I launched her is in Jupiter, Fl... directly across the state from Bradenton. BTW, I got my upholstery, fuel tank, windshield, and steering wheel in Bradenton.

She is 22' 1" LOA (not including the stern drive)

Just beautiful, Bill. Thank you for sharing that video and for bringing that boat to the Gathering.

Bill,

I was watching your video again this morning and noticed I did not see a gas cap. Where did you put the gas tank? How many gallons?

I think I'm addicted to your boat.
