Haul out fun run

Well yesterday my club The Garden State Model Boaters, had it’s haul out fun run at the lake, which I was finally feeling well enough to addend. I really missed running with the guys during the summer and brought four of my speed boats to run on the lake. The first of the speed boats was the second boat Legend Model Boats released almost ten years ago, the 1939 Century Thunderbolt “CHICKIE IV”. The second of the boats I ran was the last release from Legend Model Boats, “MISS SEVERN”.

It turned out to be a pretty nice day, until wind picked up and started making it choppy with the swells for running the models. Just like the real boats you had to watch what you were doing or run the risk of having trouble. I thought I would post some running pictures of the boats for you pleasure.

Rich, I am glad you are feeling better. I know it can be a hard road at times. The models look great running in the chop. You done good for all of us builders. Your kits are worth every penny.

Those are very very well done boats, clearly many years of building experience behind them ...

Great to see this post Rich.

Rich,

Thanks for posting pictures of some of your really nice boats running well.
You are a true craftsman and they run as well as they look.
Glad to hear you're feeling better.
I am saving for one of your century Sea Maid kits. Fell in love when saw it in your shop last summer.
Jim

Thanks Guys for the kind words. I have my wife and partner to thank for the pictures, but not to loud. She will want a pay raise.

Started back on my build of the Lyman Outboard in hopes of finishing her in time for Christmas but don‘t hold me to it. With a the delays I have had due to health, it is taking longer than usual.
