Monte Carlo on the water

Post by dsolaro »

So I finally figured out YouTube and have a short video of the Monte Carlo on the water. I have an "official" launch party for family and friends scheduled for the 14 th of July at Garwoods at Lake Tahoe. I cannot tell you all how smooth this boat runs on the lake. I am very impressed with the performance at this point. As you can see it was an extremely smooth day for Tahoe standards. My dad and I are still grinning from ear to ear!! As soon as I have more video I will upload it,until then this is all I have of the maiden voyage. Enjoy. I certainly am!

Of course we need to see some more pics but that wake reflecting the setting sun is postcard worthy. WOW

Few things in the world measure up to the thrill and satisfaction of boating in a boat that you built.

Very nice. It's ride was so smooth. The lake probably helped a lot with that...I wish our lake would stay that smooth after 9am.

Congratulations on your launch. A very nice ride.

I'm with Jeff. I wish I could see water like that. I'd have to go out at 4am to get it.
