9knots is an awesome speed...is that max?
Thanks for the nice words, Christian. 9 knots is the max, and the squat is only bad at max speed, which is typical. At normal cruising speed 6-7 she rides with even trim. I think it's propped close enough for now, I have other things to do besides hone the wheel in.

In the meantime, the boat went to her home dock and had a nice drive over sans sails. Had my dad shoot some pictures from the bay boat. She gets up to 9 knots but does so with serious squat and throws a mean bow wake in the process. Drives like a dream; heavy but smooth, like an old Cadillac, cutting through the water.

Got the engine running and moved her to a temporary dock until after Challenge Cup regatta this weekend in Gulfport. It was awesome to move and drive here even if just sing the engine.

Oh and one (that I know of) thru hull is leaking from where I assume it exited after arching from the chainplate.

When it rains it pours. :slamhead:

Anyway, what a beauty.
I'll be sure to let you know after its 90% done. I may slow up after that. With most projects, the last 10% usually costs 90% more in time and money... So I hear. (:

And thanks, hopefully I'll open the sails up next month!
