Hello,

Here's a picture of our launch of the SL Tenacious in May, 2008. I have no decks or combing at this time. Not even seats yet.

She steamed well on B99 biodiesel.

Hi Doug B

Very nice boat. Looking forward to get more technical details.

What are the main data of the hull?

Best regards

Thanks Den

I was able to steam her about 50 hours this summer. She's a real hit at the lake. I've taken about 50 to 60 people for short rides, lots of fun.

It seems that the international symbol for "blow your whistle" is well known by the kids around here. I get that motion from them a lot also.

Keep Steamin', Doug
