My float is finally ready.
« on: April 07, 2016, 06:38:27 PM »
A little over a year ago my father in law handed this boat down to me for a good "family deal" we pulled his engine and everything else in the boat and he left me with the hull and pump only. Well at that point it was time for me to get busy trying to put together all the missing pieces.  Long story short its been a busy, expensive and stressful last 12 months. Im glad i finally got it to the point it is at many sleepless nights and beers went into doing all the work by myself.  I feel exceptional proud kniwing my father in law (who passed away before he coukd see it finished) woukd be super stoked to see tbis boat finally hitting the water again after 20 years of sitting in the garage. RIP Bud this ones for you!

One of the best investments you could have done with the PD! You'll be thankful you did when your pulling the kids tubing or skiing!...and when you go out solo for a hot lap! Let us know how she rides and performs...that bottom really looks interesting.

Got the cable for the PD all finished and dialed in . Cant wait for Sunday to run her. It's either going to be a short trip or a long trip. Hoping for the later of the two.
