The project is going well and I have the boat operational. I have a link to a movie a young film maker, David Storey, shot and developed that you all might enjoy. http://vimeo.com/2833564
Some new statistics:Top speed is 53.7 mph so far. In 27 running hours she burned 42 gallons of diesel fuel. She carries 85 gallons. I installed a Garmin 535s and a Icom 422 VHF. The auto inflate system and the AC electrical distribution panel are all working. I installed a new battery charger, lights and hailer speaker. Next I am working on a way to get some shade. I did have the seats recovered and I stuck with the gray color.
