The Engine, It’s ALIVE!


We thought when we headed down to the boat on Friday that we were going to hear good news about the first start of the new engine. We had no idea that Chris Rinaldi was going to surprise us with the fact that he had completely finished the install, including rebuilding the hydraulic steering!

Wow, just wow! On to the sea trials!
