    Ok guys. Got the go ahead for Uniacke House today. I will be going to the lake to check the bottom this weekend and to look at the site for first of July regatta. I will keep you posted on progress but for now we have an open invite for the site, as long as we respect the park. I will get back to you soon.

    OK, it is JUNE already. Steve Crane and I are going to be running and shooting each other this coming weekend. If anyone would like to join us, pipe up and be counted! If Uniacke House is a go, we were thinking about going there. Doesn't matter what boat you bring, doesn't even matter if it is 100% ready yet, just get them out there!!! Reply here,

    OK people, so far we have Steve Crane, Paul, John and myself who are for sures. Steve Hill plan's on it and Bob is hoping to be on town and can therefore show up.
    I know there are more of you out there. There is no point in having boats if they just collect dust. We are planning for Sunday morning. Like I said, it doesn't matter if the boat is at 100% or not. The best way to get it there is to run it and get the systems working. Or just have fun maneuvering to avoid being shot. I hope to see as many Captains as possible.

    Hi,
    I am planning to come with the Tirpitz. No battle for me since I am still(!) working on the drive line.
    There is no set screw in the pinion gear and the motor shaft isn't getting a tight enough fit to hold it.
    I have soldered it on, but I did that before but it didn't get a good seal. Next I will try to find a matching pinion with a set screw.

    But even if the drive fails, I can get some gas and pressurize the pneumatics and setup my guns.

    Rob, the spot we are using is where the fire dept fills their trucks, just off the main parking lot. I am surprised you and Paul didn't find each other. Unfortunately everything was running late yesterday. It was a good time, Steve sank me this week, (I got him last week) so it evens things out. Jason Clarke brought his VDT. A friend of mine ran Lutzow. We didn't have any extra gas so there were only 3 ships firing, but it was fun.

    I am going away for three weeks but will be back early July. How about a battle on the weekend of 10 July? Lets try to get a big turnout, since there is lots of notice.
    Lets get some battle time happening, pick a time post it and get out there. You guys need to get your boats on the water before I sink you!!:) You know, to make it a fair fight. See you soon,
