Default Going to the Pond Sunday


I gave up trying to make it a perfect finishing job, never been so tired of sanding.

Finished weight w/out fuel is 7.5 lbs.
CG is 10.5 inches from the stern.
Power is Four Stroke .52, swinging a 12 x 6 prop. Haven't fired the engine yet planning on doing that Saturday; I have to go get some 4 stroke fuel.

Bottom is 6.5 oz fiberglass and a couple thin coats of Bondo and I lost count of the layers of paint; used Duplicolor and then applied a
clear coat.

Dont expect to break any speed records, just hope it does not sink.
