      DONE! Passed onto Ray "The more the Merrier" Mason.

      ALCON,

      Please contact me via PM (that way I don't have to constantly return to this thread to check) if you wish to placed on Ray Mason's yearly "Groton SubFunRun" invitation email list for the trek to the "First and Finest" US Submarine Base two day fun run.

      Need your name and email to pass on.

      I will announce this again for the 2018 invitations.

      NEVER underestimate the power of a Sailor who served aboard a submarine.

        I have a 23 in the works and it will run level like my first one, not bob up and down uncontrollably. I'll let you run it so you know how it feels to have one work LOL.
        If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

          Ouch! Touché, sir! (I had that ass-kicking coming for sure).

          He's right. For weeks I could not get my Type-23 to run stably underwater -- never did figure it out before I had to send it to Mike. I really need to see how Tom has gotten his to work so well.

            David, I enjoy our banter. For anyone reading this, that does not know David or Me well enough, I owe my beginnings into RC subs to David and Mike. With that said, I can not hold a candle to David's talent or even suggest I am a better sub builder. The Type 23 went together well and I am certain if David had the time his sub would be rock steady!

                O.K., I take back what I said. David is a do-nothing slacker......feel better baby?
