Randy said this in his email to me:

I can't imagine any boat performing better, to be honest. It seems to come up instantly and flat as a pancake. It was an awesome day. Almost 2 1/2 years in the making and still needs finishing touches. Can't begin to say thanks enough to you for offering up such a wonderful experience.

Here's a video of the boat at cruising speed:

Looks like he did an exceptional job on this beautiful cruiser.

Boat Building Photos

Please don't be embarrassed to send in photos of your projects. I get a lot of emails from people who tell me about their build but never send any pictures. I'd love to see them, as would all of the other people who are either building a boat or thinking about it. They need all the encouragement they can get.
