Yea......Every thing works, Even the lil motor has some pull. Sits very nice in the water. My expectations are 2 fold for hope for this project. Rudder even works when reversing. Best of all................No leakage....SWEETAGE. Thanks for looking. Now I can get started on paint and details. Hope the granddaughter don't catch me playing in her pool....Ha

Don't be jealous.....Its still a prototype and dose not preform to speed boat standards yet....I'll have to fine tune the plans and get the rest drawn up on them and send a copy if ya like it that much. Wet sanded every thing down now and went a head with another coat of primer. Next is a lil rondo to fix a few Character spots,- Not fit issues, ha -Then one more thin coat of primer and hopefully some gloss black. Front grab rail, V windshield, and some 1980's Interior still on the to-do list. Still haven't decided on working or non working lights yet.

Flameage will be free handed of course. Never Never never flame out your lawn mower....They blow up....Yes blow up...I did it twice to perfect running lawn mowers and the both blew up after paint jobs...Ha Ok so maybe I better come up with a different paint scheme For boat......... As for the floatation the boat does....I'm probably more surprised then all of you...I really hav'nt built or owned a boat before. Thank goodness for Google Images.

I was going to do three coats but the First sanded out so good that I don't need to. Slick and shiny, Hope the bottom turns out just as good as the top did.

Thank you, you two...Ha haven't had enough coffee yet .....Nope, This is my firsty .....(red line under firsty)...So the plan today is to start the interior. Decided I will cut and carve some foam, Also that will help it not sink I think hehehehe. Just need to get inner dimensions before I flip it over and finish bottom paint. AAAArrgh more coffee please...Even the ole fingers are like moving S>>L>>>O>>>W.

I won't bore you all with to many of the interior pics. This is how I'm going about doing it though. It's 1/2 inch pink insulation foam. Hopefully it will turn out like A tuck-n-roll Interior like what is in boats.....Thanks for looking and help watching the paint dry.
