That's really something to be proud of Kyle. You did an amazing job. Can't wait to see that boat pulling up to my dock!

As a personality color orange you enjoy partying and socializing and planning all types of social events - orange people are the life of the party, the uninhibited performer! You are often the loud talker in a group. :toothy7:

Kyle the boat is coming along nice bro!! :thumbleft: :salute: :cheers:

It would be hard to go without it now!! The way I have it set up in the front, doesn't give the travel that the rear set up does, but it still takes all the "sharp" jolts out of everything.
