Ohio running flawlessly at 2010 Regatta

Postby Pirate » Sun Aug 01, 2010 11:16 pm

Finally. 8 years running subs and I finally have a model that is trimmed right and runs how they're supposed to. Here is my Ohio running in perfect trim.
Regatta was a great time. It was a blast to see everyone again.

Beautiful water and really good shot. Looks like you are hard over to port and shes leaning into the turn! Nice!

I spent quite a bit of time watching Pete run his boomer. I must say it is, by far, the nicest handling boomer I have ever seen. The internal engineering is first rate, and the finish on this boat is stunning!

It was great to meet you, Pete!

Pirate, did you get any more pictures of your Seawolf?

I sold my Seawolf at last year's regatta. So I finally got around to building my own Virginia class model which was one of the first hulls I pulled years ago. It ran well too, although there is no depth control in it yet, so it porpoises unless it goes the exact right speed. Problem is, I think only it knows what that exact right speed is. I can only duplicate it by accident. Here are some picks of it running at the SubRegatta.

Pete,

she ran (and looked) magnificent! Check the video off the stern of my Blueback, you'll like it. Link in the regatta photos thread.
