    Finally got the Vector wet

    It has been a long time coming for the yellow vector but we finally got everything dialed in and finished. Not a full build or re rig. The customer supplied the boat minus the motor and then brought us a motor a few weeks later. We had to make the motor work with the boat. Minor plumbing, electrical, and fabrication. We used as much of the original hardware as possible. Here are some pictures and video in no particular order.Click image for larger version.

    Vector is one of my favorite hulls. It looks great. I imagine it runs just as good as it looks.

    Do you know where the boat will be run? Would love to see it on the water some time.

    Appreciate you posting up the pics, awesome stuff!!

    The boat will run primarily in local southern California and Arizona ski races. At least that is the plan. The motor is very mild but the boat still runs just shy of 90 mph on flat water. Faster than the owner intends to ski.

    Oh, and by the way, from the looks of Castaic, it looks like a weekday morning run!
