My new to me Waterman

This is my first post on this site...Wes told me about this forum and it seems pretty chill. Anyways I just picked up a used Waterman. It's a 2001 HB Waterman with a 25 hp tiller. The guys from microskiff will recognize it! Props to Tom G for hooking me up, he's a stand up guy and a great boat builder. The hull is hunter green with a cream top. The only real negative is the platform was done in LineX but its a terrible job. But it looks fine unless you get right up on it. Ive wanted one of these for about a year. One ride on a Waterman and i knew it was what i wanted. Here are some pics...quality is not great but the weather has sucked lately and i havent got home early on the nice days!

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I took her out for the first time today and got some good practice with the tabs and trim in some rough conditions. She definitely runs and poles skinny. Garry (from CG and microskiff forum) was with me and got the skunk off with a rat red but otherwise conditions were not favorable and it was back to the ramp fairly early. Got 29mph on the GPS. it was too rough to experiment too much.

Went to the Gordon show to check on the status of my new push pole and see the ambush. Got to meet flatsphil and see his sweet Waterman...it was nice talking to ya phil. I also got to meet Capt. Bauer, the former owner of this skiff, and get a few more details about the skiff.
