Love to see it!

I'd love to see the "article and photographic journal," it must be very interesting. Can't wait to see her in action.

Hawkeye I'll try to get a few shots of her in action this weekend.

I have a HUGE photographic journal I could put up that shows the boat from working with the paper plans through the nearly final touches.

I thought I might write a bit of an "article" documenting our experiences. Anyway the slide show is impressive (if I do say so myself) and I'll ask if it could be put up somehow even on a temporary basis as it really is huge.

The Lucky Skunk maiden voyage

We finally got the boat in the water for more than a few minutes this weekend. It is not fully finished - mostly aesthetic stuff.

In short it is awesome!!! We took it to 2500 rpm (top end is 5000) and got 23 knots in 2-3 foot chop with little in the way of bouncing and banging. Despite a 20kt wind we even stayed mostly dry with only an occasional splash making its way into the boat. My only "complaint" is that it has a very decided tendency to drift stern to the wind and a drift sock for 26' boats only keeps it beam to the wind. I can't wait for a calm day to see what she will do at WOT. Others have built this boat with a 150 OB and achieved 50mph and we have a 305 in it with over 200 hp.
