We have not run the boat with the panels yet as we were having a shroud built by Little George Arsenault that "took a little longer" than anticipated. LOL. I intend to try it right after I put the Maddog away after duck season closes next weekend.

You must have been off your meds that day. You know her driving record. What where you hoping for, she'd hit a deer and you wouldn't have to hunt that year? Wow!

Birddog: Due ignore the car motor haters, to each his own. I have only seen a few Palm Beach hulls with CM's. There was one about a year or so ago now that had a WT engine on it. It was stolen and I don't know what ever become of the whole situation but it sure was a beautiful Palm Beach boat, one of the nicest I've seen. It was purple if I remember correctly.

Mr. Stossel's son said this was at John Prince Park (Lake Osborne) 6th Ave. and Congress in Lake Worth. It was taken during a Palm Beach County Airboat club BBQ.
