    Just to let you know, Steve. I'm devoting an hour of my throttled bandwidth to watch these videos. No regrets.

    So basically a 13 minute video telling you to read the build log? ;):D

    I'd figure I'd rather waste 13 minutes of your time then spend two hours taking and editing pics, uploading, and captioning. ;)

    Very nice Steve. First small ship I’ve seen with no aft facing cannon. What’s the theory on that?

    Geesh....

    Just not feeling the love for my video tour. :(

    I guess on my next build, I'll forgo the uber detailed build log and save all the energy for Stem to Stern... ;)

    It would have been more popular if I had filmed it. :D

    Just giving you a hard time for the response. The video tour is a neat way to approach it (albeit not my preference, I'd guess some people may prefer a video)

    oh catburgers on all that! just seeing the guts is nice. I waited for an entire hour to watch that video. Again, no regrets.

    or, to make a "waiting" reference, No Ragrets.

    Hey BTW, you run a capital ship with the same 24V direct drive, right? what size prop and blade pitch are you running on that?

    Same props on both models. Vacuboat tug props cut down to 1.5".

    are you still having the same ludicrous top speed issues with it?

    Nope. Just dial the endpoint down to 35% or so and she runs great.

    Okay, I'll rephrase. Did you hydroplane your Barham, and if so, videos?

    No, the Barham doesn't hydroplane at full throttle buts it's fast. Probably running sub 20 seconds. She has to be dialed down to 60% to make 26 seconds. No videos.

    One of these days, it'd be amusing to have an "open throttle" battle. No limits. I think it'd be a riot to watch either of your boats in that kind of a scrum.
