Well Trimming took about two hours. Maybe less. It all went perfect and this is the best driving boat I've built to date. She dives with ease. In place or under power it just has perfect control. No leaks no problems. Next a video from the lake on Thursday. But for here's a short one from the pool.

She ran great at the lake today and my friends Tom and Manny took some great shots with their hi end cameras.

I put together a nice video but both the sites I use are having issues so that will have to wait. I don't use YouTube or have an account there.

Enjoy the pictures,

Steve
