We're European now according to the EU, mate And just to add to your indignation, let me tell you that I'm not even British!

C'mon - it's only a short swim. Did Rorik and his Viking buddies not leave any longboats around?
No? Never mind. i'm sure Sloperacer will 'distribute' anyway. No real need to come over...

Going to check that great SR blog on a daily basis, Andy.

Don't laugh: so what's a JW60 like compared to say a Retox? (unobtainium being the most obvious).

We made final revisions to the Dub, waiting for 5 planes right now that have had all the changes made to them and the layup we specified, I should know in the next couple days when they will be here.

We did get a chance to fly the dub at Weldon, (this layup was super light) got it up to 147 in light air, Dub tracks very well and is stable on the back side.

The wind was coming up so we landed it and added 7.2oz plate lead in each wingtip, we were not smart enough to figure out the CG may change, needless to say the Dub being repaired now.

As soon as the new Dubs arrive and we can verify all our changes were incorporated we will be placing a large order.

Thanks

Bill
