    It's good to see it now becoming "multi-generational" in the group photo's
    NEVER underestimate the power of a Sailor who served aboard a submarine.

        Hopefully I make it next year, with the Marlin and a Skipjack if I can get around to building the SJ. Was nice to see another Marlin there. Water did not look to clear like last year.

          Good point, Ed. We had two youngsters by my count.

              Was the Bronco Seehund a working model or static?

                Why were you taking apart a receiver? adding a different antenna?
                If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                  Joe Oliver's dynamic diving Krick U-boat got some water in it and the servos started to get funky. First thing I checked was the receiver board for water. Dry. Popped open the servos and the amplifiers were soaked. End of day for the Krick U-boat.

                    I'm not sure. Good looking model though; a very high degree of detail. Very crisp.

                      Sent young Eddie back to SC with his "lost but found" BLUEBACK. I never had a chance to test because he had the Tx. But last night he reported that the electronics functioning normally.

                      So speaking of "Generations"l, let's see:

                      1-If he can trim it as to not lose it again.

                      2-Clean up the "hull properly"

                      3-As he has the 1/96 ALPHA that we adapted to fit the SWM WTC, let's see how well he checks the trim on that.

                      I think he has a pond at his house down there in Podunkville to play "let's NOT lose the boat".
                      NEVER underestimate the power of a Sailor who served aboard a submarine.

                              Yeah, Ellie makes me wear the damned thing -- says I'm getting too much sun. This from a dark island girl, no less. Seems we Nordic types are subject to spontaneous combustion when exposed to Mr. sun.

                              Got pictures? What did you run?
