Hope you didn't have to go to far to get where the bank was a little closer to the water level. :shock:

Thankfully my midget doesn't weigh much. Took us about 1 hour to get it on sandbar. Then bailed out water. But the 5 miles of pushing the boat back to the ramp really sucked!

It is a app on the cell phone/app store. Works great, I have one I use for my Jeep since the speedo is off when a cop is behind me. :toothy7:

Speedometer. Works great. Shows time of trip, how far, avg speed and top speed for that trip. It's free and works good!

Got my transom cut and bent. Ready to cut out old one. Then I'll have to chop rudders, add micro anchor then off to the water!

Thanks for this build thread. Awesome to see what a 503 will do on a light...ish boat. Great info.
