That cutwater looks sweet! Nice touch with the horizontal pieces.

It’s spring and the governor has lifted the ban on motorboats. So, the Mistress is finished and back in the water with her new touches.

Very nice. The horizontal bars from he cutwater make her look fast just sitting there.

I got my Squirt in the water last Sunday, just in time for freezing rain and snow this weekend! :(

Enjoy the Summer while you can!

Thanks guys. The weather has been a roller coaster here. It was 80 a month ago. A week later it snowed for 3 days. It warmed up and now it’s windy and dropping back into the 30’s then next week back up in the 60’s.
This is Michigan. But, the Mistress is on her Lift waiting for more warm days.
Happy boating to everyone!

The reward for the long dreary upper Midwest winters is the comparatively mild summers.

Performance report on trim tabs:
I had a problem last year with my Malahini not performing well.
With four people in the boat, she had a hard time getting on plane and no matter the load, porpoising.
So, I bought trim tabs. What a difference. Now I have very little bow rise, with or without passengers, and absolutely no porpoising. Ver happy with these tabs.

Absolutely Matt, she kept saying I want to go faster.
Thanks Gale, she’s our loving one. Hope you get to see yours again soon. Time passes to quickly. 😀
