Ron, boat is an abbreviation. It stands for Break Out Another Thousand.

ROFL... Who would have thought this hobby would be so dangerous lol

No new news on my 47. My motor mount is sitting ever so patiently at the post office so I should be able to finish her up in a day or two.
The maiden voyage should be Wednesday (I hope)!!!

Took my Big Yellow 47 out today with Stringfly and it was running smooth as silk...........had a big ol' crowd checkin her out...............

Got the steering issue figured out and no probs on the 2p part.

Also, tried an x460 and only went 66, likes the x457 better...............
+1 on getting a build thread started for that baby... But you are MORE THAN WELCOME to post your progress in here if you would like. Your own thread may be easier for all of us to keep up with though...

Scorp, what steering issues were you having?
