That is definitely a white knuckle passage through there. Thanks for sharing your video.

Well it look's like the weather here in upstate NY is finally going to improve. Hopefully we'll get her uncovered this week and start the doll up process and if the lake level comes up get her launched by the end of the month. Yippy!

It is looking like the weather might break here in Michigan too. By the end of the fifteen day forecast there are some 70 degree days coming. I need to bottom paint and a couple of other things so I can launch in early May.

I am planning to use Interlux VC-17. I believe that is whats on the bottom now as a can of that brand came with the boat when I bought it. I don't know for sure yet if I am going to do the whole bottom or just touch up a few spots.
