Nice work Ken. That's a great looking hull. Did you have to do much to it? What speeds are you looking at with the engine set up?

That is looking fantastic.
No chance you are getting bored at home.

Sunday the wetting out started on the small skiff . This does take a bit on this boat and next year l think a motor out and tightening of the Rove's will take place as it has never had a going over before.
Today l intend to install a spray line in the big skiff and start the same process .
Will try and hit the water soon.

Seat done. I can now fit in the boat! Fuel mixture issues sorted. Engine now running nice and just needing some fine tuning under load.
Fingers crossed we hit the water tomorrow for a tuning session.

Well good and bad today. Good - Engine ok but still getting some moisture in the crankcase from condensation as it's running way too cold. Bad - think I will call it "submarine. 1900Lph bilge pump couldn't keep up with the flood and most of the paint on the keel is now gone. Still had a shitload of fun while it was still afloat. Thanks Ross for the quick launch and retrieve help between runs.

Busy week. Engine out, tightening of keel roves and replacement of some, and a few other engine mods. Hopefully we may have some floatation.
Engine back in this arvo.
