Great job, Joel. I have been really impressed with this build and your approach to it. Do you have any performance numbers on her yet?

I could not read the GPS on my phone with all the sun glare. Speed seemed to be just about what we had in boca (44 mph), maybe a little better.

thanks for the compliments, it was a fun build, somethign very different.
