Sea trial today went excellent! Two rod holders to install then completely complete. All systems were go except my fuel gauge but have narrowed it down to the culprit. Such a fun boat and will work excellent for me.

This thing had impressed me thoroughly. Floats and operates very shallow. I have lock to lock steering with the well, which i thought was a pipe dream.
