Nice pictures!

Any comments on your boat now that it has seen some use?

Adding spray rails to keep water from rolling over the top of the gunwales.

Butch Barto and I try to tell everyone that spray rails are not optional on most of these boats. They make the boat drier and a little faster. They also grip some in a hard turn.

The spray rails on my Geronimo almost completely eliminate any spray coming up over the bow.

The bow section is fine. It's more towards the middle/back.
