Well October is here and it looks like the regular run will be October 25. Location is Gilligans Island park in St. Mary's Ga. at 10am.

That's two weeks away so get those boats ready!

I still need to assemble something but who knows what I'll have.

See you there Charlie

You guys still going to run this Sat. at GI ? There is a better than average chance I will make the trip. Ofcourse you know my average :?

Thank God gas is cheaper, $2.58gal and headed in the right direction, makes it easier to drive 275 miles.

Polaris,

It would be great to see you again! We are planning to make the meet usual time of 10am and at Gilligan's Island as always. I just spoke with Warren Wilson and we had planned on running our subs (his at least as mine is apart still) and then going to lunch.

please join us if you can!

Speakin of Lafayette class, the Lafayette kit I have is on sale right now and with the dollar to Euro conversion its about $400 cheaper than what I paid about a year ago. That includes the dive tank and ballast controller, makes me want to buy another one. :D

Are you saying that it is cheaper to buy the lafayette from engel by 400 dollars right now. That doesnt seem right with our economy i would think it cost 400 more because the dollars value has taken a dump.

yes, that is exactly what I'm saying. its not the the dollar is getting stronger, its the Euro is losing ground because of the crap economy, that coupled with the fact Engel has it listed on sale. its crazy I know, I had to go back and look to see what I paid and yes almost $400 cheaper then I paid.

Hey Kevin,

I'm working on the Gato soon to be the Cod. I had a lot of trouble getting straight prop shafts. That is taken care of now and I will begin working on assembling the hull.

Kevin,

Your dad said he had better things to do... Something about giving the family inheritance to your brother or something.

Seriously, he said he had some company in for his B-day so he would be tied up. I think he dropped his model and doesn't want to look bad showing up with a busted boat. Unlike me because I had good boats and made them bad, haha!

As for the Gato. I have most of the stuff. I haven't done an inventory of the WTC from Caswell but if I'm not mistaken I need all of the servos and a few other odds and ends. Looks like the WTc came only with a motor and gear box, servo tray and ballast system. I could get her up and running as a surface runner until I get a 6 function radio and I may do that to get wet.
