Mark,

As luck would have it, I've actually started on a logo-based sticker myself.  Kent Cannon's idea ... and a good one.  Mine's going to have similar design to yours, but will have the website URL on it ... if I can get it to work out.  We'll see....

Thought I would add a pic of the whole boat. Still waiting on a motor, Yamahas are on back order

Where are you located and where / what will the boat be used for mostly?  I sure like how it turned out!  I bet you can't wait to get a motor hung!

We are in Lake Stevens WA. We plan on getting back to our salmon and halibut fishing with this boat. Although we love to fish we plan on cruising the boat up the inside passage. We invested quit a bit into being comfortable on the boat for long periods.

Finally its LAUNCHED!! Had a brand new Yamaha 250 installed (On back order for ever). Only took a few pics, can't believe they actually came out (I was shaking so bad). Anyway, took it out for sea trial with the tech at Tom-n-Jerrys and put it thru a short run. Brian I have to say.... everything you say about this boat and the way it operates is spot on. At 5500rpm we were at 44mph, Hard turns at or around 25mph smooth and clean, goes on plane with very little rise to the bow (smooth and clean), at 25mph I was getting 7.8 gallons per hour on the Yamaha computer. I think I have to say the same thing Dave has said.... "I Love this boat"

Thought i would put in an up date on our sea trials. We took the boat out for a weekend run this last weekend. We left Everett and went to Anacortes friday morning then made a full sweep of the San Juans. Total miles was 210 miles... after our return home.  Posting a few more pics. Everything about this boat has been great, even found some 3ft chop and very happy with the ride!!

Excellent!  Glad you're liking the boat and how it operates.  Your Puget Sound cruise sounds like it was a lot of fun!  Now go do like others have done with the Great Alaskan and take it out over the bar on the Columbia.... you'll have a lot of trust in the boat after doing that :)  (Not to mention bringing home salmon!)

The pic at night with the lights reflecting off the water is pretty cool!   Iím excited to get started.  Glad you are enjoying the fruits of Labor.  You certainly have a great looking boat.
