    Default We did it! - Special Thanks From Grant & Ashlyn

    Wow. Can't believe this boat actually came through. It started out as a normal day at the lake when Ketlinski offered to trade me a boat for some dog sitting hours, and boy was I excited. At 16 I didn't think it would have even been possible for me to get a boat, but it happened. Probably the most exciting summer of my life. Boats have been apart of my life ever since i can remember, thanks to my dad who has helped me understand all aspects of "good" boating, and having fun on the lake.
    The boat started off as an empty hull with a few pieces and parts, and some seats. The seats were in rough shape, and the boat was thrashed, but we started in and worked our way out. And now it runs like a champ, and hasn't let me down yet. It's very dependable, don't think we have even pulled a wrench out of the toolbox any of the times we have been to the lake. I haven't GPS'd it yet, but that will come soon enough.
    We worked our butts off, sometimes it was more dad than me, but we make a pretty good team and both feel very accomplished. Thanks dad for all your help and what you have done, I love you.
    And thanks to:
    Wildstreak, ptc, RBC, Jetboat performance, baddbgy, widetrack, ponyfive0, jockorace, fourtznme, fathead, lolyfe, rattle can lou, nuke me, ka0tyk, homeblown 57, gone green.
    and forgive me if i have forgotten any others.
    You guys saved us a bunch, all the little pieces and parts helped out much more than you know, and were all greatly appreciated.
    As for now, here are some pictures, before and after, and I will post some vids at the lake next time we head up.
    Thanks again to everyone. I am so grateful for this project, and now being 17 I can officially say I have a running Cole Jet Boat!!
