Ryan,

Well that's different, can't wait to see her with tubes!
The hull & motor set-up looks great.

I'm looking forward for the next post.

Thanks

We wanted to see how she would perform without the tubes. We have always heard they would run without tubes. Well we wanted to prove it could be done. It can!

A cool little trick.

We designed this arm so we can service all our pums/switch without crawling into bilge. We just spin 3 wing nuts and it slides up and out of the boat. Ah... We love it when an idea actually works!
