    Excellent. I'll look them over when we get back from the Groton fun-run.

        Yeah, the town is a back-water sort of place. But, it's where I hooked up with Ellie, while getting the boat ready for a Poseidon conversion at EB. (Never attended sub-school -- I cross decked from a tender, straight to a boat).

          So that makes you a half of a bubble head. I am a full bubble head. Use to stand top side watches on the pier for the NR-1. Winter of 76 was like -50 below coming off the Thames River.

                No one dared slam me in the chest. Engineer did the honors -- I Qualified on the TRUTTA. I later added a patrol pin (nine of 'em) and dive pin (hard-hat) to the hardware collection.

                      Just found your package buried on Ellie's desk.

                      The NOVEMBER!!

                      Are the drawings to the scale that we're working too? I suggest I do the propellers; rudder, stern planes, bow planes and horizontal stabilizers; all masts and antennas; deck fittings (bollards, escape buoy, hatch bails, towing padeye, etc.); yokes, saddles, running gear, and other internal foundations and hardware to make it r/c friendly.

                      This beast will take a two-motor 2.5 SD -- likely the GATO unit. In stock. The high reserve buoyancy of the Soviet boats dictates a huge ballast tank -- the GATO SD has that, and its small enough in diameter to keep the top of the ballast tank underwater in surface trim. Perfect!

                      I provide you two sets of the above fittings and a stock GATO SD, you provide me the hull and sail. And I make the local lakes and pools safe for Communism!

                      Sound good?

                        Mate, DIII finally arrived via my Tasmanian friend this afternoon. Travelled OK - only a small ding in one fairwater plane. What a great boat; well done! Now get back to work on the Novemeber.

                          Guys sorry for absence. Taking care of 91 year old mom who has dementia at home. Been busy with that. Kind of put November on back burner and don't know if I will finish. Been working on my jets. Think what I am going to do is build a 1/72 598 SSBN. Just like the 602 A Lincoln I was on. Any thoughts? Have to finish 1/72 Thresher also.

                            No problem on this end. I too have been distracted. When we get to it, we get to it. No rush.

                                Sure, a very kind offer, but best I do my own work -- easier to integrate sub-assemblies that way. The information provided has been a real boost, and most appreciated.

                                I'll be watching your ECHO-2 work with interest.
