Looks awesome!

I have a Starting Line gun that used on a few motorcycles.
I never used it on my boat though.

Great job!

Really really clean work Brendon. A real looker that boat is going to be.

Its flipped!
Only one minor hiccup in the process. I missed removing one of the screws in the building form and everything was still attached to the concrete. There were some complaints about how heavy the boat was until I realized what was going on. Once I got under and removed that screw everything went smoothly.

I didn't do anything fancy to roll the boat over just used as many people as possible and turned it over in the air. Ill post some pictures of the flip tonight once I get them off the camera.

Here are a couple that were taken with my phone after.

Wow, another boat flip. Nice work Brendon. I can see from all these boat flips that next year is going to be a busy launch season!
