    I've added the badging. It's a finishing touch that was missing to my eye and needs to be on a scale boat.

    Jokingly I said the boat is like a transformer. It changes into a rescue boat.

    Well, a chrysalis morphs into a Monarch butterfly...

    So I'm calling this boat Chrysalis. That's the model name.

    I'm calling the boat brand Monarch. Built by Monarch Boats. Even sounds like the name of a boat manufacturer.

    I know, maybe a bit of a reach, but it needed a name, lol...

    Edit: I changed the badging slightly and uploaded new pictures in this post.

    I got the boat out a few times for some testing with the interior in it.

    It took a couple of trips to get it right, it was mostly the transom height. I had to raise it up due to the weight of the interior which added 2.89 pounds.

    I'm pretty happy with the overall performance.

    And the dock handling is great.

    The video of the finished boat running at White River Reservoir drops tomorrow, I'll post a link here when it does...

    I did a little more to the underside. To clean up the water splashing over the transom and spraying against the front of the outboard motor...
