    Had a couple more runs today. Unfortunately, Greer Park is too shallow at the sides to do submerged trim adjustments. I need about 2 feet to get it to sail awash.

        Outstanding! Looks like handrails too.
        IT TAKES GREAT INTELLIGENCE TO FAKE SUCH STUPIDITY!

          4th. run today and finally got everything trimmed to where I was comfortable. I still have plenty of room to go full negative or run with a high or low waterline. Second shot shows submerged running trim. I also surface ran the boat with the flag and spray shield. Just need a couple crew members to complete the look. Next stop, San Francisco sub run in September.

            Brought the Nacken out after a 1 year break. Lake in Yorba Linda is super clear....

                  That's just wonderful. Now I have to go and pour Drano in my ears just to get that image out of my head.
