Maiden voyage, part 2, 3, Bee boat, Barbe boat.
The Barbe boat is near perfection. Runs great. Maybe
just a little weight in the front. It looks like it wants to
fly a little. Any thing above half throttle is scary.
When it hits a little wave it gets in the air and stays.
Sometimes it only hits the water every five or six
feet. We were a little concerned about the weight,
over twelve pounds, but the Thunder Tiger 61,
even at half throttle is a screamer. And it idles
like a kitten.
The Bee boat he had trouble keeping it running, fine
on the dock and died several times on the water.
It wants to plow just a little at first but comes up
with just a little power. His is moving the motor
back an inch and just a little down. The balance
on it was right on.
Still no video camera, sorry.
Brad got a piece of flint rock in his shoe and cut his
heal. Not the best day we have had. Wind picked
up and we came home. I am a bit of a party pooper,
as I have to stay under the shelter because of the
sun. It was really hot today.

Kimber we really like the boats that you and Brad build but to have to sit here and just imagine what your talking about is kinda hard to do. A picture is worth a thousand words and a video is worth a thousand pictures. See what you can do to so we can see what your talking about. Pete

"A picture is worth a thousand words and a video is worth a thousand pictures."
Wow!, that's heavy man.
Here Kimber, you can borrow one of my videos. Just put your name on it, they won't know.
