    Default Woohoo!

    Scott has delivered a fine product. Now it is off to work I go to finish the job. I am stoked. Sincere thanks to all those who provided valuable insight.

    Went to scale and the boat weighed in at 4160 pounds after deducting truck and trailer. Motor goes on Wednesday (Suzi 300 and kicker), just painted today (interior), insulation and rigging this weekend and then more rigging for a few months I am sure. I am thinking maybe adding a decal kit on the side to give it color but it would have to be cool.

    The hull is 26'x8'6" and LOA came out to be 31' Where are the minions when you need em?

    I have not settled on a kicker but looking at 15 Suzuki. Good deals now are hard to come by. Anybody got a Suzi 15 Long Shaft electric for sale?

    I would consider a high thrust kicker. I have a Yamaha 9.9 high thrust on my 27' GC and it will push it at 8-10mph

    Just an update, been busy working on the boat. So far since delivery last Thursday, I have zolotoned the interior, insulated the roof and walls, installed windows, hung the primary motor and started installing electronics and battery system. Pushing for launch around Memorial day. Many thanks to all those that helped and warm invite to those that want to help. (Paid in beer and pizza)

    Nice looking craft, is that the 26' hull that was for sale in Delta Jct a while back......?
    Or did you buy the hull directly from American Marine?
    jus wondering what ever became of that hull..........it looked solid and well built.....

    @ Elim, yes I am. I wanna get it wet and kill something. I figure I will be out on Memorial day weekend even if the passengers have to sit on lawn furniture!
