    I remember seeing somewhere an article on a boat trolly made out of pvc pipes. Roll it into the water and the ship floats off and reverse this procedure to recover it. I don't currently remember where I saw it though. It was online I think.

    If you have the guns installed it is a shame not to use them. I am pretty sure that other captains would have few if any qualms about sinking a target that does not fight back.

    Points are points.

    Guys,
    Now with me getting Doria this week, I'm look for a radio as for the first two season I'm only running her as a surface runner. The two radios are http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=15140 --- Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx & Rx V2 - Mode 2. I need a program cable for it, and i can only use in IRC, but the other one i'm looking at is this one: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=10173 --- HK-7X 2.4Ghz 7ch w/ 5 Model Memory TX & RX V2, which would let me program the two Speed in for her In IRC she's 26sec over a 100-feet and in Treaty She's 33sec over a 100-feet! I'm not sure why the speeds are so Diffident! but when i get her, i plan on get some photos of her and My little LST! I got this off Strike Models, I was looking to see if they had put the Model Info up!!! The LST were Sometimes referred to as “Large Slow Targets”:D That's mean and Funny, its true, There Max Speed was 17-18 knots!!

    They have a $50 oneby Turnigy that's 9 channels. I recommend it because it is really easy to program (no computer needed) and will take care of any ship you're likely to use.

    I might just keep the name she has, Doria!!! My dad said something to me, Ask one of my RC combat friends to build her for me, and I'm like no, I have a Rc friend here in Pittsburgh, that might be able to show us how to, build her:D
