Got it primed this weekend.

There's a few spots that need some filler but we're getting closer to the water

Looks great Tony, I do not see your drivway haveing any boat out lines on it
so you must have covered it, I was also thinking maybe the back yard. You
are getting vary close to the water. Dont forget to bring in the fuel fill part and
the T-bar.

Looks fermiluar Tony! I see you didn't do the split windshield thing, but thats ok. Your getting closer! I ran mine for the first time yesterday! Smooth, predictable, and very quiet! I had my camera and was going to take a vid but the steering pushrod came apart and ended the day after 1/2 a bag of gas.[] NO COWL NEEDED! I didn't have a drop of water inside my hull! Brian

That's pretty funny about the boat outline on the driveway!

Boat looks good Tony...

We need videos of all of these Easy Vees out there!

Glad you finally got her in the water Brian.[8D] I meant to ask what radio are you using? I just ordered a Futaba 3PM. Yeah I left the windshield alone and just ran the side rails back about halfway to help keep the spray out.

Thanks Joe for the comment. I attribute the good looks to a great designer

Tony, I use a JR-R1, PCM radio in all my boats. The 3pm should work out nicely for you. That is one of the PCM Futaba's isn't it? Brian

Finally got to the painting. The white on the bottom and the grey on the sides is done.

I was really happy with the way it turned out using rattle cans

Later this week I'll put on the top color and she'll be ready for clear coat.

BMA and Fuel, your boats look awesome, but what impresses me as well is your photo documentation. I never seem to have a camera around?

Here's some more pics after the last color was put on.

It's Krylon. How long should I wait before clear coating it?

Motor is from O''Neil Bros, stinger and rudder from Zippkits, turn fins and trim tabs from WHH.

Radio is a 3-PM
