The new Riptide 35 MkII Longboard hit the water for the first time today in Anacortes. It was a beautiful November day, the boat trimmed well, and the retracting drive unit we designed for the boat performed better than our expectations (9 knots with an 18 HP engine and zero vibration).  Thanks and congratulations go to new owners Peter & Mary Salusbury and Jim Betts Enterprises for their hard work and dedication.
