    Default Launched my boat. Woot!!!!!

    Launced the boat I've been building since Sept. 09. It was quite a day. Took my family of five and my inlaws for a day on the lake. It performed flawlessly. I can't tell you how much good it feels to put so much effort into someting for so long and have it exceed your expectations. I still have lots of things I want to do to it, but I'm finally enjoying the fruits of my labor.

    Here is the launch video. My father inlaw is manning the line while I back her in.

    My daughter along for a ride.

    Absolutely awesome! She's a beaut. What a feeling of accomplishment that must be.

    You should be very proud.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    Congrats on the accomplishment.

    When does the blue primer get the burgundy painted over it?

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    Launch was on Whitney Lake. Benbrook is much closer. Supposed to be great Striper/Hybrid fishing. I'll probably be hitting it by the end of the week. You from around here?

    I have cousins who live in Haltom City and Arlington. They like Benbrook and have talked about it on occasion. That is how I know about it.
