First Launching of my new 4.3 mtr. SIB!!

Hi yall. Just successfuly launched and broke in my new SIB.
Its a quicksilver 430 HD with a 25hp 2 stroke.
Ill be sure to post pictures soon. It was a great ride down my local river!
I have been waiting for 2 months because the boat I originally got was defective from the box.

Anyways if anyone wants to comment a concern I had with the engine please post. I was worried about my engines vibrations. Heres the link.

Congratulations on buying a SIB.

My first outing was in the River Severn. My second outing was at sea and I was scared to death when I got about 100 meters off shore! However that was about 4 years ago and now I'll go just abut anywhere in it, despite the fact that it is just a tiddler at 3.4m.

I'm now looking forward to seeing some photos of you in your SIB.
