OB17 Underway Downunder...Splashed.

Post by sideslippa »

Well guys, finally made it to the ramp. I am pleased to report it was a fantastic event, the OB17 performed as best as I can tell, flawlessly. We really put her to the test, with great results. But more of that later lets get some photos up hey!

Slippa I hope she feels as good as she looks. Congrats on a job well done. That is of course if she,s done. Are they ever?
Good luck and put some fish on that deck. Keep posting pics of her and performance data.
