    I may have to drive the pickup, if so I would have to bring the dog. Would that be a problem?

    He would be tied to the pickup, as I don't like chasing after him, lol.

    Congrats to the SAS crew for putting on a great event this past weekend in Statesboro. I had a great time and look forward to future battles with this classy group of battlers.

    I did not partake in any full body immersion retrievals myself, but others did! ;)

    Like to report that the Tyng Mogador ran like a champ. The new batteries, motors, and props pushed the little DD up to 22 seconds quite nicely AND no burnt brushes this time! The cannon was a bit inconsistent the first day but upgrading to Black Diamond BB's took care of that. :woot:

    Nah! They floated pretty (that is until some clumsy BB would run over them). Phil from Vac-U-Boat has learned from the experience and is adding some hull depth to the little Fletch to increase stability. FYI, the Fletchers ran really nice except for this one issue.

    Honestly, I think that the hull is fine as-is, just had a high metacentric height problem. The motors can be mounted lower, and the gun was not as light as I build for a destroyer. I will find out for myself, since Phil brought me a kit. Review and build thread to follow :)
