Darin,

It's mostly salt water, goes in, and out with the tide. I've never had a problem; need to make sure you grease the shaft/rudder tube, spray off the bottom of the boat with fresh water when done.

Have it on my calender, will make it a priority. San Francisco will be represented, been way too many years since I ran in SD. Sailboaters have been thinking you were their pond. Tell Mike R. to prepare to be invaded.

Thanks for the reminder. I just sent an e-mail to the Inland Nautical Society and Maritime Modelers. Let me know if I missed any other area groups.

I was joking with the guys at the pond today, about getting their "Salt Water" boats, out and ready. As usual, the guys that have never run in salt water, were unsure.

It's not a big deal. As the goon said earlier, just grease the shaft and rudder before running. Then spray them off with fresh water afterwards. I have been running in salt water for almost 20 years and have had no problems.

We've been working hard on the upcoming regatta. It's just two Saturdays from now (June 20th), and things are coming together nicely!

The plaques are all made up. Many thanks Kay for helping us jump start that process!

Keep working on your boats and navigation skills. We're planning a nice lunch, some awesome raffle prizes, and will even have a boat rinsing station. Navigation will be categorized based on size. On-shore judging will be based on work, pleasure & military categories.

See the newest flyer attached, and feel free to print a copy to remind yourself or a buddy.

Who's ready for some model boating?!

PS...I've attached a few photos (technically slides) from the Argonauts back in the 70s that included scale boats. I'm thinking the guy in the yellow shirt won a trophy for the best outfit. Agreed?

Can't wait . Went to almost every regatta between 1979-1998. Some of the largest on the west coast; local media coverage, over 100 models, great weather. Never seen the 3 boats in the last pic, great models.

I'm pretty sure running in salt would be a problem for me.....No signal if the antenna goes under.......
