    Woot! Thanks for the great pics of the battles. That rake is an interesting retrieval idea.

    At last week's Treaty event my son tagged along and brought his chest (high) waders he use's for fishing. He was our designated ship retriever for the day.

    Btw, did your group have any problems with weeds? Some of the shots look like it might have been a problem launching and recovering.

    It was great. Rob, im still trying to get pictures from my step-mom, so, i might or might not get any....computer issues. No, not launching, but during, when one unnamed rookie drove into the weeds and got stuck, there were some issues.

    The weeds didn't seem to be a problem except for one captain who launched by pratically throwing his boat in and filling the boat with duckweed. He got to use the rake. [:D]
