February Fun Run

Postby Crazy Ivan » Mon Feb 18, 2013 5:13 pm

Last Sunday's Fun Run saw the maiden voyage of my Moebius Skipjack class Fast Attack boat, the USS Snook (SSN-592). The ballast system was not yet functional, there were rubber bands and duct taped chunks of foam in play, but we managed a decent surface run. Further builder's trials to come next month. Here are some photos and video:

Preliminary trimming.

Please pardon the finger-in-frame. It's tough to run the camera and the boat at the same time.

George,

The video doesn't play. It states "video is private"?

Works now.

Looks like a good first trial run.

I did like the waterline model in the one photo. :mrgreen: BD.
Just tried it again and it works now.
I like the song but the ping was giving me a headache. :D
