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.

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.
