Looks great and my favorite color, fighting lady yellow. Looks like you have a Bimini top too which I think is must to get out of the sun. Besides registration, license and insurance to include a towing endorsement, make sure you have an anchor,some long dock lines to help you when launching and a vhf radio.

Best of luck to you and chiminey. Light winds and following seas.

Shrimpy - This is the Racor fuel filter/water separator I would suggest you put on if you don't already have one. The one with the clear bowl is for outboards http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs...classNum=50370

Good luck with the boat Steve looks great.Dont forget to get Sea Tow or TowBoat US they are worth there weight in gold and it also covers you when you are towing in case something happens.Pretty sure Alantic hidhlands has water and eletric to wash the boat after you are done.

One other thing you need to concern yourself with when launching, especially at low tide, is slime on the ramps. Every year you see photos of cars fully submerged at ramps. Once they start sliding there is no stopping them, even with 4 wheel drive. If you have a heavier boat and a light tow vehicle, this adds to the issue.

If you see slime on the ramps there are a few things you can do that will help.
- Use chocks under the back of the front tires of the tow vehicle when launching and retrieving.
- When launching make sure the boat is floating off the trailer. I've heard stories where someone went to gun the boat in reverse to get it off the trailer while the boat was still on the bunks and that is what caused the tow vehicle to slide.
- Try throwing some sand on the ramp to help your traction.
- When backing down the ramp you should be backing down in nuetral and applying slight break pressure.
- Just like driving in the snow, stomping on the breaks or gas spinning your tires is not advised. Either can cause your tires to break the pavement and could be the start of a slide.

Since you have that big Suburban and a lighter boat, this might not be as much of an issue for you Steve, but it does happen. Just be careful.
