Great pictures!!Your boat looks amazing on the water. Very hard to tell it is not a full sized Sprinta! Do you know the Sprinta's scale? You know how I like to see scale figures on my boats, and was wondering the scale so I could start my search for a few crew members. That way when I get a Sprinta (positive thinking) I would have them already

The scale is 1:6. The original full sized boat is a Sprinta-Sport. Here is a photo stolen on the official site when the gallery was accessible:

Then, a photo Christian sent to me:


I don't know the puppet's name, not its brand, maybe can you ask to your (grand) son or (grand) daughter?

A Mattel puppet also fits well. Rather than Barbie, I prefer Teresa.

Thank you. That figure in the Sprinta in the spa is perfect. Wonder where it came from?

You mean that wasn't a full size Sprinta?

Wifes ODOM on the pond at Ala Monia pond yesterday. It has its second sail rig on which is a US1 sail rig. It makes a big difference in very light winds.

Thanks Boomer, I'm not 100% yet but getting better each day. Because of the uneven ground down into the pool the guys put our boats in and out of the water for us. They are afraid that if I try it that there will be giant log falling in. With a new knee my balance isn't up to stuff yet.
It sure was great to get a couple of the boats sailing again. You don't know how much you miss sailing until you can;t do it.

Kinda boring, with such light winds, but I put an on-board camera on the deck of my EC-12

The Indy Admirals had their last Fun Float of the year in Carmel Indiana yesterday. The reflecting pond there is perfect for RC. About 3 feet deep consistantly.

I got the Dinghy sailboat out and Kermit had himself a fine day of sailing. Just a light breeze which is perfect for that boat. 60 degrees. A great Sunday afternoon.

New photo taken by my friend Rob (Capt.Crash) of his very beautiful recently completely Yamaha Round the World Yacht.
Crash has a very comprehensive build thread on his Yamaha with lots of great pictures and tips! Check it out if you haven't visited his thread. Crash is based in the Southern part of the country down in Millbrook, Alabama and is a true Southern Gentlemen.

Here's a link to his build report:http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...463901&page=20

Enjoy
