    Looks great I like those atlas plates all the bobs plates do a dance at speed.

    In publix a couple weeks ago guy starts bsing with me in checkout line. Noticed I’m packinf to go boating and says did you ever hear of checkmake boats? I said yea I have owned a few of them. He said he was one of the original 7(?) owners of checkmate seemed more like a money guy. wish I could remember his name I would try to see if it’s true.

    I laid up a new flange and glassed it back on.

    Yes I was nervous, but it never moved.

    I think 34 bolts will definitely hold! haha.

    Passed the float test w/flying colors.

    New 92 gl tank full of water, batteries in place and 50 lb jack plates on both motors.

    Im happy w/that.

    The Mrs says Im out of time and switch to building us a deck and pool

    I listen to Rush Limbaugh on I-heart radio via a Cocoa station and they have had a blitz on the race.

    Wish I was there.
