Nice vid the boat looks totally different with that paint job. Is there current where you are running or is it a pond/lake?

 Do you use wood or fiberglass to make your hull?

That twin is just the dopest rig I have seen in a long time [:@] Looks like the step hull is a great match with the motor too.

You done good, you done real good
