Lots of fun had this morning. The park was beautiful, the water perfect. Several turtle targets of good tonnage.
Wayne and I arrived at the same time. It was great to see him. He's looking super. He brought along his Akula and Borei projects. I about fell over when I saw the size of the Borei hull in 1/96. You could fit three of my Permits inside it.
John Knasas was already there and running his Revell Gato. It held depth like it was on rails and looked perfect above and below the waves.
Fitz Walker and his wife showed up too. Fitz ran his Doyusha I-400 dynamic diver (see the feature article in the latest SCR) and it performed exceptionally. He can drive the boat so well you'd swear it had a static ballast system.
My Guardfish ran good despite the minimal maintenance I did in advance. Still have a pesky leak around the shaft seal. I did get some nice maneuvers out of her and definitely beat the turtles at "tag".
Didn't take many photos as I had my hands full of boat. But such as I took I share below. Wayne may be forthcoming with some too. All in all it was a lot of fun. Thanks for coming out guys!
