West Florida Model Boat Club "Assault on Ackerman"

This is a continuation of something started in Dock Talk a couple of years ago. Really seems better suited here and since I can't move the original thread...

Winds today were varied, 10-20 mph from the ESE. Not a small boat kind of day but most of us junkies were in bad need of a fix so we ran our test n tune anyways. Yes there were "Small craft advisories" on the local news for the gulf waters. Other than the wind it was a beautiful day in the park.

First run up is Scott's HPR twin.

A round of Limited Spec Offshore. Many started, few finished with the wind and chop today.

Ackerman was a bit "challenging" today. By the time we started running at 10:.00 the the winds were around 15 and gusting higher from the NE (worst possible direction.)

When the first handful of us arrived at 8 to put up the newly aquired safety netting there was not much breeze at. There was even one of the guys from SRQ flying a PBY from east side of of the lake. I grabbed the video camera and shot some of his flight. (lost him a couple of times due to the trees where we were standing and when he went right over my head).

Cool! One of those little PBY's has been on my list for years. I'll have to break down and get one some day.

I got tired of fighting with the "Titanic" and put the motor and esc back into my DF33. With the Spring Shootout coming up at Waveblasters next month wanted to be sure I had something running right for it.
Even with the wind, chop and last place start still made a 1st finish. Yay me. (2nd round I was a dnf trying to take the lead away from Brian)

Driving the little mean machine "PTD" (club specialty class) was loads of fun today. Brian took a quick lead with his well powered (also good for 60+ on smooth water) Explorer cat but that didn't last for long in today's chop.
I got another one.

Brian's Sniper 45 with Castle 2028. Running just a little too loose for today's conditions. His trimming the rudder bottom did improve it's cornering though.

I really thought I had this round of Limited spec hydro sewn up until the heavy winds pushed me inside one of the buoys and cost me a lap.

A really short round of LSO. Only 2 starters and didn't take long to narrow the field to 1 for another last man standing win.
