    The 2 Bitondo Brothers, Caleb (Ish311), and Brian Koehler descended upon the Tugboat shop and madness ensued... Work finally cut off at 10 minutes before 10 tonight! Totally awesome time, and Caleb's IJN Kongo looks awesome. Very pretty boat, I can't wait to shoot at it! Meanwhile... a pic of some of us in the shop...

    Also, we noted that the battery that Anachronus left in the shop at a previous battle looked lonely, so we decided to let it ride in some boats...

    It says that it wants James to come to a battle this spring so it can get on the water instead of being teased by these idiots :)

    @Darren - Yes, I still have many hulls in the shop... slowly getting the pile shrunk, only to start more. :)

    @Nikki - We had great fun, a lot of boat-building was done, and we have more to come today!


    I think that in the cold winter season when there is no battling, it's good for the spirit to do something like this where it's a weekend event that's worth it for people to drive from further away. The camaraderie is inspiring us to continue The Great Work in preparation for spring when our creations rise and take to the water to trade blows...

    Hehe. It'd be easy on the knees, and cool ;)

    Though to be honest I can't wait to see Evstafi on the water. Maybe I will bring out something Russian in the spring...

    I will make sure that it gets someplace safe (i.e. where it won't fall, or get something heavy sat on it) until then. Your Kongo is freaking sweet, I can't wait to see it on the water.

    hey Calab,
    I love the kongo class BB/BC.

    Clark,
    Would the lipos would in the Savannah, or should i just stay with the batteries i have?

    Exactly what Nick said. Stick with what you've got, and save the money for future builds :)

    My poor battery will have to suffer more abuse. We are in the middle of Spring Pilgrimage which is the high point of the season here in Natchez. That battery will find a home soon. I promise!!!

    BTW Kongos are indeed quite lovely for oil burners.
