What is the status on LILY? Tried to reach you by e-mail but no success. Interested in LILY as i want to start an electric powered launch soon. considering LILY along with REDWING 18' or 21'. Interested in your total cost etc. Let me know by e-mail or post here as others would like to know as well as me. Pictures would be great.

Well Bob, I finished & launched her in August. We got a new computer about the same time and could not get the camera to interface with it. I think I solved that problem but now, of course, she is stowed away in the barn for winter. In all aspects I am pleased with the results, she trailers well, launches easily and moves along silently. I did keep track of time & expenses. Total time was 250 hours and total $ was about $4500 including a new galvanized trailer. I will get some pictures when the snow melts, which cannot be too soon. Rick :cool:

Where ya gonna use her?
My mothers home town is Williamport and I have spent some memorable times on the Susquehanna in everything from ski boats, sunfish and even an inner tube in the Famous 'Put your Fanny in the Susquehanny' on Labor Day Weekend some years back!
Love your area, looking forward to seeing pics.

One evening last Summer we launched her at the Hiawatha Park a scooted up the Susquehana for a few miles. The water was high so the trip back was a lot faster. Rick

Rick,Re the camera. I had that problem with one particular computer. I gave up and bought a card reader ( CF card in my case). It was cheap and works a treat. little thing too.
