PHOTOS Spring 2009 SubRon 6 Fun Run

Postby TMSmalley » Sun Jun 21, 2009 5:38 pm

We had a great time at our end of Spring run in Carmel this Father's Day weekend. Had a good turnout and although it threatened rain on Friday as we rolled into town, the Saturday weather was fantastic!

We had dinner at "Friday's" restaurant on Friday night. Then on Saturday, after the great free breakfast at the Comfort Suites (in spite of John's "adventure" with the waffle iron! 8) ) we pulled into the pond parking lot around 9 AM. We set up our tables and started putting boats in the water. After a long winter's layup, most of the boats had SOME sort of issue, but we got them tuned up and back into the water.

If you live in the midwestern USA states and are interested in subs, please drop me a PM so we can get you on our email list for notification of our next run!

I hope you enjoy these photos half as much as we had fun!

Internals of Dave Hampton's reverse RCABS setup. Note that it takes at least one brass ball to build subs!

Image
Dave uses a $10 Pelican waterproof box for his dual pump setup.

Image
Dave got a high volume 12 volt valve from the auto parts store. He just asked for a valve for a '66 Chevy! With such a big model, he uses two BP cuff compressors to get the boat up and down in a hurry.

Image
Kerry Addington put down his HD video camera for a few minutes to show us his nearly completed Seawolf.

Image
Internals of Kerry's Seawolf.

Image
A good turnout on a fantastic day!

Steve Jensen's USS Snorkulus with a "Carmel Measure" camo scheme. I turned my head away for a minute and looked back and it was gone...It litterally dissappeared underwater!

Note that I had it in the housing which muffles the sound somewhat (Tim). Be sure to click on "HQ" when the video starts to see high quality video.

Somehow Matt manages to get everything stuffed into his 40 MPG Toyota.

Steve Jensen in the bandana is one of the fellows you probably recognize from the last few SubRegattas as a Radio Czar. Steve is a former biker and semi-driver for the band "Chicago" (really!) He sang backup on one of their albums.
