Thanks Larry for your comments, support and teaching. I for one drew upon your knowledge on a regular basis. I not sure, but I think my status may elevate to a least builder.LOL i will in the upcoming days post videos on it running. The boat did not disappoint in any areas of performance. Tracks well, very stable, dry, handles rough water well and the best thing of all it is very fast!

Hey Folks here is a link to one of the first speed tests for those who care.
http://youtu.be/QXIzNbpv2Rk
Thanks TW and all the rest of you guys who hung in there for such a long time. This is one of the greastest accomplishments of my life. It is definitely the longest project I have ever been committed to. The boat is a real performer, she is one pleasant surprise after another.

The video will be up in a bit and I will upload more. I hope you all enjoy and keep at your projects. My compliments to Jacques for a solid design for these northern waters. I will also continue to visit the forum regularly, as the boat is not 100 percent complete yet.
Dave
