Very happy to get it launched!
More stable than expected..... it is after all only a 19ft, 1200lb sailboat hull
The old 9.9 sailmaster outboard needs to be re propped. Rev’s too hi, propped for a much heavyer sailboat.
Was nice to sit and putt along!

Very nice job, I love this kind of stuff, built my current boat from a surplus USCG hull and I'm thing of changing it to provide more enclosed space so I really appreciate your great photos.

Congrats, the boat looks great. You may want to keep that outboard propped a little on the low (edited) side, they are great outboards but if they idle for too long they can foul plugs pretty bad, cruising at a slightly higher rpm than necessary may help avoid plug fouling and also improve your battery charging output.
