Your bow bulb design and build has tickled my curoisity to the point that since we started cruising this year, each time I spot a cat in an anchorage, I check to see if she's got them.

I've been surprised at how many do. And invariably they look good. :D

Well, today was really great. Craig Watson and Patty visited and we went out on the Mississippi for a nice short midday cruise. I'll see if he sends me a pic and update the post.

It was really great meeting them.

That is one hell of a boat Dan has built! What an awesome job, and you're doing great in tweeking out the post launch issues. I hope it gives you many, many years of pleasure and pride, both of which you truly deserve.

Thanks so much for taking us for a ride!

Always so cool to meet someone from this forum and see their work, especially during this adventure we are on. Was a fabulous day and Pattie and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I'm sure you'll get the BBs dialed in and I'd be interested to see if lowering the engines a little calms the spray out back.

Always great to see that boat on the water.
