Time to suit up and get ready to launch.

There I go! Straight out into the lake.

Uh-oh!. Rob did say I should keep it close to the shore, but I didn't listen. There was some propellor trouble, but thank god someone was there with a jet ski to tow me back to the boat ramp. I was REAL nervous at that point because we never tested it to see if it would float. It did.

After a few modifications, I am ready for the next launch.


Rob says "Just put her on cushion and I will spin you around"... Okay


So there I go again, but this time I keep it close to the shore.

After a few fun turns I bring her back in for a perfect landing.


Okay Rob, your turn to take her for a spin. Don't forget the helmet!

So I sez... "Just put her on cushion and I will spin you around".

And there he goes!

Oh no, more propellor trouble. At least he kept it close to the shore, so I wade out and pull him back in.

Back in the shop for a couple of modifications. We need to fix the propellor so it doesn't spin on the shaft. I also cut off the top of the lift box in order to move it up another inch or two to give it her more lift.
