    Sweet! Brian K's wife very thoughtfully stocked the shop with sodas :) I'll see if I have shimakaze plans laying around.

    I'm off that whole weekend if you want to come up, I'll see if Brian can make it other than Sunday. Ish, Same applies for you if you want to do a different day, let me know, but Brian and I WILL be in the shop on Sunday.

    Or Carl can try to swap duty with someone...

    Hard to believe that it's the 4th already! Ish and Brian K showed up and we got in a good day of boat work. Ish worked on his Shimakaze and another project. Brian worked to get David Winnette's SoDak ready and I worked on my I-boat. I got the shafts greased and was tested the motors when I discovered that the pinions I'd bought for my motors (4mm shaft, not 1/8") were NOT in fact 49 pitch like the driven gears. The stainless steel driven gears started machining the brass pinions. That was put to a halt, and in the end, the I-boat had the gearboxes removed ans has been converted to direct drive. The motors are 1,000kV motors, so they're not all that fast anyway and shouldn't need a whole lot of limiting to get the boat down to 26 sec. Also got the CO2 bottle mount in place, and trimmed the ends off the props. Looking like it'll be drivable soon!
