All went well.
the many holes I poked in the bottom to attach the HDPE and steel I was concerned for leaking.

WATER TIGHT Nice.

All the work on the bottom to make it slick seamed to work.
When I in hooked one of the tie downs in back the boat very nearly unloaded its self on the ramp...

We put about 400 pounds in water in tubs and pieces of Iron to see what it would be when the motor is on .
It does push it a little deeper then the last test.
It now is right at 5" of water with two people and the extra 400 pounds, a little deeper then I had hoped but I think it will still be ok, Hope anyway.
More later.

A few minor changes would fix all that. You could even use your old air
screw.

Nice Freeboard, with the weight. room for bulky gear
and critters.

Don't worry about the depth draw. That will shrink to
less than 3" when on plane; and that is were it is
critical going up rapids and shoals. s for your "on mud
use" it will not sink as low.

looks like chris is having a ball with the trolling
motor. Make sure he doesn't twist the handle on that
thing to get her up to take-off speed.

Your DIY project has really come along nicely,
congratulations. Did you have two brothers named
Wright!!
