I did not get out to Hansen today. Instead I went to Lake Balboa to meet a fellow who participates on RCU instead of here at RCG. He has a pair of the big Dumas PT boats.

I shot some video with my DSLR. I am still learning how to use it so you will have to forgive me the sometimes blurry and shaky hand held camera video:

Dans PT Boats (3 min 23 sec)


I took a few photos too.

Tom your camera takes good pics...I love some of the aft view shots...that boat makes a nice wake and sounds pretty good too. The antenna needs to go...it is an eye sore and these days there is no reason to have one showing...

Thanks for the cool post...

Yes, Pete I do have a pic of the inside. In the description of the video (You DO click on the Youtube icon to read the description and watch the video in a larger window, don't you?) I mention that they are each powered by two Astroflight 25 Marine motors,

Well, if it ain't one thing, it's another!

Been having pretty severe pain in my thumb for 5 or 6 months now. Finally figured it was time to go to the doctor.

I have Carpometacarpal Arthritis or CMC.

I got an injection of cortisone in the joint. I have to wear a brace that immobilises the thumb. Makes it kinda hard to use the right stick on a transmitter.

I may have to spectate only at Hansen for awhile.

Hi Tom,

You aren't old enough to be getting these kinds of problems. Hope the cortisone helps in a hurry. My wife goes through joint pains , especially in the knee and the cortisone seems to help her for 4 - 6 months.

Thanks Iran.

I have had cortisone shots before in other areas. Typically, it makes it worse for 2 or 3 days and then like magic suddenly it feels like you have new parts.
