Looks great, I am gonna have to try some of those rollers. I bought a bunch of the mohair ones, they work pretty well but I am always looking for something better. It took me a lot of practice before I was able to do a good section without runs, yours looks great.

These foam rollers https://www.amazon.com/Wooster-Brush-RR308-4-1-2-Pack-2-Inch/dp/B002YCA9BM/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=WOOSTER+BRUSH+HIGH+DENSITY+FOAM+ROLLER&qid=1632172995&sr=8-2

I not 100% sold on their use, maybe in some areas the foam edge is nice but the mohair (if you can get all of the lint out) works quite well and I think it is easier to get an even coat as it is hard to tell with the foam.  Rolling takes practice for sure.

Yea, bigÖ I may put in a basket and shoot hoops for a while.

Yup ... it's fun, but a little stressful to turn it over.  But it's a huge milestone and for the first time, perhaps, you really get a feel for how big these boats are and what you got yourself into LOL ... )

Take a well-deserved break, sit in a garage chair and stair off into space ... dreaming of more halibut on the line :D

The boat looks great!  And you did well with a small crew.

What a ride!

Thanks! Harder than I thought. All done though. Iím hoping to come grab that gas tank in early October. Iíll let you know.

Size matters ... these boats are bigger than all of us ... combined!

The RAS thing looks easy to install too.  I still believe that a 3/4 ton truck w/enhancement (RAS or bags) is a great compromise... rides better than a 1-ton, you generally get a tranny that's more "car like" in how it shifts and uses over-drive etc, but in a heart beat, you can tow something heavier.  Oh ... the 3/4t costs $10k less too ....

You've viewed the truck from the side and that gizmo prevents squat?  Or is it more of a roll-control device?
Definitely prevents squat.

Well ... as soon as I get a new(er) F-250, I might just put those in!  Hate drilling holes through factory metal ... but would for airbags, especially if the hole is small as mentioned above.

For those who may be curious I talked to a rep from ez anchor puller on Friday, they said that pulling under the spool was no problem as long as as I was using the roller that was provided in the kit, which I am. I guess real world will probably dictate whether further action on my part is necessary but they seemed pretty confident that that was within the intended use for their system.
