Hey Rick, your new black cat looks pretty awesome, inside and out!

So, the Hansen Race Track now has Armco Barrier around it I see!

Hey Thanks Guy's..It was hard to figure out a course on the on roadtrack Tom!!...........Here is The Maiden Voyage of the Monster Cat...Warming up with ERIC....I thought I was in trouble when I saw my cat bouncing terrible at low speed,I think due to the over Cautious 39mm prop.....I used a 440 that was cut down even to b smaller and unloaded...This combo I usually use 45 or 48 mm prop,but when I finally started to give it sum throttle well it was like a Mercedes,lol...Smooth,didnt hear hardly any motor scream and was plenty faast...for first run..........

So I'm thinking about getting into RC boats (already do planes, helis, and cars). Is the lake at Hansen Dam a paid membership club thing, or can noobs like myself just go and see if I like it? That leads me to my next question, are the new guys welcomed here or are they looked at as if they were a disease? Thanks.

Edit: No idea if this is the right thread for these questions, I just goggled Hansen Damn rc and this thread popped up as the most active.

I just want to get into this hobby because it seems relaxing and fun. I would like to be able to take my dogs with me and maybe some snacks/drinks and just have fun at the lake. Also, I would like to take my Super Cub on floats, if this is even allowed of course.

Thanks for the info guys. I went by in the afternoon today to check out the place. I noticed that there were fishermen there, do they grief you guys for boating while they are there trying to fish?

PS. I did see a truck in the parking lot with Violoators sticker.

Now it is time for me to figure out what boat to buy.
