      In the driveway they sounded great, tried to run it on the lake.....but in typical Rory fashion this year seems to be a test of my patience. Long story short, petcock valves didn't leak with the hose hooked up, got to the lake and pressure from a fully loaded pump must be higher than hose, because those petcocks were dumping more water in the boat than the bilge could pump out So $6 at the auto parts store and we are ready for another attempt....This time I hope to get OFF the Trailer

      My nephew before the start up...Attachment 4691 We did get On the Water but not All the way off the trailer LOL

      LOL, it's all good! Had to make it tall enough to clear the velocity stack and level with the boat, unlike some of those comedians VJB's mine actually has some side wall to it....
