Wow, very nice.  Post some performance numbers when you can.  How much fuel will she carry and where are your tanks.  Excellent paint job.

Which compartments are your fuel tanks in.  Did you use the aft most compartment, just forward of the aft bulkhead. Or did you put a tank in the one just forward of the console.  Wondering just where I should put mine.

Is that an Evenrude Etec on her?  If so, I would be interested in why you chose that engine.  I am still debating which engine to get for my Marissa 'Salty'.  That is assuming I ever finish her.

Did you ever get this running right? With a 175 you should have been over 50.

If you dock or slip much, you'll miss the intermediates.  Pack along plenty of poly bumpers...

Dale.boat building is much like laying brick for a brick house, one piece at a time. Pretty soon it will be done.

Your boat turned out looking great!! The black bottom paint looks good on there. Do you have any pictures of your console area?
Running 50 that's awesome!!!!
So far are you pleased with the performance of the boat? Handling and so on....
Take care
Matt
