HDI LIGHT

The turnout today was very light. The weather was awesome, but perhaps the wind scared some away.

Present were Capn's Brad, Larry, Mark, Pat, Vic, and myself.

Mark had a classic Kyosho Waverunner that he had refurbished and painted in Lifeguard colors. He also had a new Aquacraft "Mini-Thunder" classic shovelnose hydro. You will notice there is a huge difference between his version and the stock livery. Mark does awesome work on everything.

Vic had a Reef Racer.

Brad had his deep-vee speedboat and Springer. "Triple A Brad" was needed a lot today.

Pat had his Springer and he also was needed to perform rescues today.

I ran my B-28 and after 1 1/2 laps the pinion gear grub screw loosened and so I had to be the one they rescued. It failed in the middle of the lake just as avidjeepr had predicted.

The winds were very strong and the water very choppy so rescue work was difficult but the two Springer Capn's performed admirably.

Before the gear failure my B-28 GPS'd @ 36.7MPH and I think on flat water and no chop from the wind it will probably be capable of 40MPH.

It was really an excellent day, in particular for drying out the laundry and it was surprising no sheetboaters arrived.

Cap'n Larry aka Prop'er handled the photog duties today.

Schrott: I think all the weight in the bottom of the hull, when the boat started to roll, kept it in motion and made it roll all the way over.

A couple of close-ups of Marks' boats:
