Sail it, enjoy it.  You might want to consider redoing the waterline a bit higher and ballasting down for stability.

Scales,

I agree with mfr02, sail your boat and enjoy it.  If you want to add something to it to make it more scale go ahead and do it.  You've worked hard to build it so now is the time to enjoy sailing her.

P.S.  Pic of the engine room and drive?

thanks! yeah just got my new motor just gotta get my motor mounts, last engin was not in correctly so since i got a new engine i wanna do it right, i could get some pics of the inside once the motors mounted, it aint that pretty inside lol, gotta re configure my steering servo too, im not getting all the throw i want, and i was thinking about adding some mortar or concrete in the center for added stability cause it does go way faster then a fishing boat! hahah ive ran it once befor and it handeled really well in 4-6 inch chop and i was only getting half throttle with the old 31cc in there, that was also without the top on it, so well see how she does once that is all on
