FIRST KODIAK SPLASH

I launched Izzy J on Wednesday I was by myself. As luck would have it my friendís wife and 2 daughters just happened to be nearby, so they were my launch crew!!! They did great helping me out! It was pretty chaotic so we didnít get a lot of pictures the ramp was busy. Long story but I didnít get time to run her out in the bay, I went straight from the ramp to my slip. I had a few dayís work to do before sheís ready to venture out, most of it is done now. Iíll get back over this next weekend to finish up a few things then take her out and see what a single 140 can do on a 31 foot hull.
 BTW The Bow Thruster Works Great

Awesome!    The boat looks great.  Right at home!
  Have you tried to get your inspection/OR numbers or the like yet?   My wife has been worried it will be a pain in the butt

Thanks! I do have my temp registration but haven't got the OR numbers back yet. Inspection by the state or Coast Guard won't be an issue. I did have the Sheriff boat giving me the eye like what kind of boat is that.....lol

Dude... hahaha... that's too great. Nice work Chuck! Congrats! I am waiting by to see the 140 report! :D :D :D Just tell those water cops that it's a kayak and they should just move on to the guys dumping their black tanks in the harbor a couple slips down...

Wow Chuck,  it looks like every detail worked out.  Seeing your boat inspires me to get out and continue working on mine.  I really want to see how she runs with the twins.  I hope you can video the results of running on one engine too.

Thanks guys for all the nice comments!!!!
 I didnít get to work a bunch of numbers this weekend on the boat like I hoped. Not real sure what she weighs yet (I built heavy) but will figure out the weight when I go for my other motor. Sheís a bit nose heavy right now, hoping the other motor will fix that up. She does plane at a mere 15 mph at 4200 RPM. I got right a 20 mph full throttle but could only get 5200 RPM because of the prop I have on, itís a power prop. I suspect with the other motor and getting the correct props for twins I should see easily 35mph and suspect it will be more like 40+ mph. I did take a few hours to do a little trolling in the Yaquina Bay, boated 2 nice coho's but had to release them because they were wild. back over next weekend for more work & fun

On plane on a single 140 at 4200rpm, that's not too shabby... Good to know in a pinch you won't necessarily have to plow back. Any idea yet when your second motor comes?

Its great to hear you could get on plane with one motor, there is hope that mine will get up with a single 115 if the other has a problem.   Getting your first fish in the boat had to be great too.  You did great on your build so now its time to make us all green with envy with all the fish you post.
