Hull# 2724 First Sea Trial

Well, the call came from Ranger Tug that Hull #2724 was ready for her first sea trial.  I had politely asked if it would be possible for me to observe this event and so it was that I came to see Current Obsession being put in the water for the first time.   The whole event lasted about 2 hours, as Kenny Marrs went through every system to ensure everything was working correctly.  It was a bit cold, and I am very happy we opted for the Webasto heater.  We did run her through the entire RPM range for the Volvo Penta D3-200 and this little boat moves — at full throttle, about 4150 RPM, she did just north of 23 knots.
