Ready steady GO!

What a milestone!
We now have both engines running, and rearing to go!  Thanks again to Gavin at http://www.marineelectrics.co.nz/ for helping us get them purring.

It's such an amazing feeling to hear them running - it means that sculpture in the middle of the driveway is becoming a BOAT!  Today was tweaking the idling, and getting the shafts moving....so far so good. Better to nut out any problems now rather than on launching day!..  I could've uploaded a picture of water coming out of the exhaust to show my excitement, but it just wouldn't be the same!
