Thanks guys! My anxiety level is pretty high right now.
Steve - I think that makes Lilli Belle and Scout cousins. At least it does here in Missourah.

Chip,

What are you doing posting here? Shouldn't you be launching and taking pictures?

Relax, the work looks good from here.

And, when you fire up that one-lung generator the vibrations will treat your whole body as if it were on one of those foot massager things.

Truly a rare person, pure breed perfectionist with the skills to back it back up! Excellent work, Chip, and I really enjoyed seeing the progression of Scout on your website.

Bon voyage and good luck, although luck won't have anything to do with it.

After working all morning and getting the trailer under Scout I wasn't happy with the load distribution. So...I pulled the plug and sent the trucker home.
We're all kinda bummed at the moment but working on Plan B and C.

Bummer for sure but a prudent move indeed. Now is not the time to rush into something you're not completely comfortable with.

If Scout has proven anything, it has proven you are a resourceful and intelligent man that puts his thoughts into action.

Wow, just one thing, with that beautiful rub rail I'd be afraid to get near a dock with it. Absolutely incredible job.

And it looks like she floats and on her lines! Always an auspicious sign at a first launch.
