That careless driver got only a ~$5000 slap on the wrist for devastating a kayaker. Can you imagine the dollar figure if this happened in the USA? Millions..........

There will be a time in the future when all boats will require registration with the park or club. This would weed out the high-speed boats and may also create more liability on the boat owners. Something needs to be implemented soon, before an innocent bystander is seriously injured.

Interesting,... the DKM Lutzow looks odd, like it needs a larger
bridge structure, and maybe some bridge wings.

Neat little "Rover".

Lutzow needs a new superstructure. I've just been keeping it together with CA and spackle while trying to finish Bismarck.

New year's day...yeh!

Guys,
Great time New Year's day! It was cold enough to be a Polar Bear event thats for sure.

Thanks cannonman for the great video...Thanks to everyone who came out on the 1st. What a heck of a way to start 2013. And, thanks to Gary for donuts...

"FIRE" needs a gopro inside looking out so we can watch it on split screen...What hoot!

Dumas should get the rights to that "Razzmatazz" photo. It would sell a few Barrelback kits! Has ME inspired!
