Yes, that was the plan.

Lifted the boat off the trailer, on stands, have the cloth cut, everything ready to go when I walked in the shop one day and saw a paper towel laying under one of the feet on one of the four stands??

Paused for a minute to realize that stand had to be on three feet, scared the pee out of me and put the boat back on the trailer 😂

Decided to punt on the idea of having everything right before splashing and am now focusing on completing all mechanicals to make sure my science project even works before spending more time/$ on a gamble.

Im very close but running out of time before our Ohio weather turns to ****.

Built the Mrs a pool and deck so shes being really nice to me in allowing me to spend all my time in the shop now.

Steering is done, tank is in/plumbed,cockpit interior is back in and working on wiring now.

While I had the boat off the trailer I added a second set of bunks, rebuilt the salt corroded front disc brakes, added a second set to the rear axle and guide posts w/lights.
