I have been busier than a one armed paper hanger in a wind storm building chairs. Unfortunately just getting little bites done on the boat.
I finally got a marine deputy to come and inspect my hull yesterday. I was ready to haul it down to Linn county to get my inspection.  I will assemble and install the face frames on the cabinets today and complete the wiring later today if I can break away from making a living...

Got Boy Loki launched today, sea trials done, shit it's good.
Weather was force 4-5 SW and a bit snotty, probz 3-4 foot significant wave height out about 3/4 mile , kept at 2000 rpm for an hour for initial break in, after that we came inshore for a bit of shelter. 2nd break in phase is about 3000 rpm for 3-4 hrs and allowed WOT for a minute every 10 mins.
Best speed today 27kts at 5500 rpm, I think I'll need more pitch though, time will tell when I get a long run at WOT. Handled well especially at speed but maneuvering in the harbour at slow speed is not so good.
Well pleased though. We took a bit of water on board, hardly surprising considering the sea state.

I wanted to provide a short update in the trolling motor. I used it yesterday to troll for walleye, 2.5-3 mph for several hours. It was a nice break from the sound of the outboard. The more I use it, the more I like it.
