    Todays battle was HECKING HECK AWESOME!!!
    I, again ran Mehoshi Maru
    This time we stayed for 3 battles instead of two
    I played Axis the whole time
    I bought a Kitakami and @greechronicles bought a Z boat
    Also we filmed it by a drone
    My friend is a drone expert
    He is an adult not a kid lol
    I will post the drone footage asap
    Also dodge was finished but it kinda very much died
    First game: Allied victory
    Second game: Axis victory
    Third game: I don't know but I think Axis. I'm really not sure
    Will elaborate when I have time to
    Wow That was fun

    Sadly me and my dad were engrossed in battle and didn't take pictures or videos
    The drone footage should be excellent, he is a great flier

    Great battles today guys

    I think Julian's VU had malfunctioning rudders. The drive chain cogs we're loose on the rudder shafts

    Great video though... You got a few great shots on the Montana

    Wow, what a show. What went wrong there, was the Viribus sinking before it hit the shoreline, or was that a deliberate attempt to sink in shallow water?

    I think most of my problems stemmed from the rudder. For starters, I THINK the rudders are reversed. How can I not be sure? My bathtub isn't big enough to turn around in, and I haven't gotten her in the pond for long enough before the battle to relax and test things out. And as Jeff pointed out, the rudders are very loose and were probably turned by the movement of water, causing it to be very hard to control my turns. And after I got shot up in the end, you can hear the pump turn on, and then engage after around 25 seconds. My ship started turning towards the shore, and as much as I tried to reverse she kept going. I eventually embraced it and grabbed some tape to stick my throttle at full speed to try to keep me from slipping back into the water. Id say a good quarter of the ship was under the water but the angle kept me from actually sinking. I was lucky enough that we have the peddle boat so I could reach it soon enough after the battle.

    That was a great day of combat. I would like to thank Jeff for letting Ohio test its guns on his ship and the results were a success except for one thing, he shot back. Thanks for the on the water video Julian and I cant wait to see the drone footage.
    Thank you all who attended and making it a very enjoyable experience.

    Us transports also were bedeviled with problems. Mehoshi's prop was moving slow and then it sped up so I didn't sink, @greechronicles sank twice, The Maya didn't have a pump battery and got two holes, the stern dipped under but miraculously made it home without sinking, Maya listed a lot after that and my dads transports rudder would work on and off. Axis I think had more problems but managed to win once or twice. Also on the Maya (axis) the patching didn't work perfectly (It was Connor's first time) and it began flooding. So we had to take it in to port after every run but it settled so low in the water only the impenetrable part was above the waterline. The only ship with torpedos was cruiser p it never used it or never hit the little Maya. My Mehoshi was so slow (She got gunk in her prop). I think I ran out of battery (we had a lot of battery problems) and was shot to heck. Transport 6 and I ended up stranded and Maya, Geneva Convention obeying @Julian Barbera (even though he was on he allies) pushed me back to shore. Transport 6 (also dead because of battery problems) Was being pushed ashore when Julian needed to come out we pulled him out... with thirty seconds left Admiral Scheer bounded over and transport 6 was saved.

    Thank you for obeying the Geneva Convention.

    Also did I mention while I was ballasting Maya, Connor tried to control Mehoshi, but its controls were very different from the Maya and it got stuck on a rock and the other transports rammed me off but transport 6 got stuck, We tried to get him out but all the transports except for the Maya (Connor took her out) and Transport 3 (my dad was trying to ram us out) were stuck! So two of us pedaled out to get the boats.

    Also us transports were ram happy

    It certainly was funny seeing half the transports all at one dock, trying to get out.

    BOOOO. It was not my intent to be target practice... (Though the number of hits you scored hints you might be right)
