Despite the fact that my U177 is not quite ready for the water, I dropped by the SubComMI Regatta on Saturday and snapped a few pictures.
I'm not really sure which boat belongs to who, but thought I would post the photos anyhow.

Thanks for the pics. However, the ones in the first post showed up as red x's only.

BTW, was the water as green as implied in the photos?

The Green you see is actually a reflection of the trees that surround the site.

Hi Krowbar

I was there on Saturday, I don't remember seeing the sun, but the water was perfect.
If it's possible, I would like to see some of your photos posted here.
I've only been a member since April, so I guess I should have made the rounds and introduced myself to a few of you who were there.
Maybe next year, I can participate, assuming I have no catastrophic malfunctions of my U 177 between now and then.
The red X's in the original post was a typo in the URL of the pics, I guess that's what the preview post button is for : )
The water was not a green as the photo's show, I do belive that it may be a reflection of all of the surrounding trees.
I hope to meet some of you next time.
