Well done, Darrin. Hat officially tipped.

Had a couple more runs today. Unfortunately, Greer Park is too shallow at the sides to do submerged trim adjustments. I need about 2 feet to get it to sail awash.

4th. run today and finally got everything trimmed to where I was comfortable. I still have plenty of room to go full negative or run with a high or low waterline. Second shot shows submerged running trim. I also surface ran the boat with the flag and spray shield. Just need a couple crew members to complete the look. Next stop, San Francisco sub run in September.

Best,

Thanks guys.....
I had a great time running it in SF last weekend. Boat is trimmed out perfectly and is a blast to run.
