Ahhh yes! My weekly shot of HDI and it looks like it was a great day for them. I like Mikes boat. Havn't seen that one before and the visitors tug is nice too. Pretty calm for the sheetboats so not much action there. As usual I enjoyed this weekly posting of action pictures from Hansen Dam Irregulars. Pete

14.8V, 10 Amps versus your 14.8V, 5 Amps.

So, I installed the new batteries in the B-28, placed it in the water, and blipped the throttle.

The flex cable immediately detached it self from the prop shaft.

I tried silver soldering the flex cable back into the drilled out end of the propshaft. It would not stick. I ended up using J-B Weld. It will cure overnight and hopefully stay stuck together.

Hey, the weather seems to be cooling off, and it's plenty windy right now. Should be a good day at the lake this coming Thursday.

folks have been using 'lock-tite #603'* to join prop stubs to; flex shafts or piano wire...
*I hear that 'bearing and sleeve retainer' also works
