    I think the plan discussed earlier was to schedule battles every 2nd weekend, once we get enough people with ships ready to battle. I was on call last weekend and making the first I-400 components so wasn't available to battle. The battle scheduled for the 22nd was cancelled due to lack of competitors.
    John, Paul, Jay, Rob and I have battle ready models for either Treaty or IRCWCC style combat. The problem has been getting a time suitable for everyone to attend. I'm available to battle next weekend.

    Don't forget the Steves. They both have at least one boat ready to go.

    What does Steve Hill have that's ready? I believe the HMCS Uganda I rebuilt for him in 2008-2009 still needs speed testing and pump outlet selection .

    I thought the Uganda was ready, but I was mistaken. I talked to Steve last night and he told me it wasn't yet, although it wouldn't take much to get it there.

    All that's required to get HMCS Uganda battle ready is to decide whether it will be for Treaty or IRCWCC combat, install the appropriate pump outlet restrictor and run it to set the correct speed.
    Before it was returned to Steve more than a year ago it was test floated and I adjusted the trim. With the props and motors I installed it will probably run close to IRCWCC speed and would need washers installed ahead of the props to slow it to Treaty speed. For IRCWCC it needs the standard small pump outlet which I think Steve had bought from BC. For Treaty a smaller outlet hole is required (next smaller size of brass tubing).

    Hi Jason,
    Are any of your ships going to be designed to switch between Treaty and IRCWCC specs? I'm still planning to complete the light carrier Ibuki as a Treaty ship and Gorgon and Minotaur can be quicky be changed to comply with either rule set (by switching pump outlets and props). Looks like Hood will be for IRCWCC rules to start.
