So THAT'S what the Tarawa looks like! Funny thing, my brother was stationed aboard her back in the late 70's-early 80's!

Thanks for the pics and a marvelous build!

On behalf of the members of the Mission Bay RC Scale Boaters in San Diego, I would like to express our thanks and appreciation for the hard work and long hours that Kay Tillman, Tom Lewis, Ed & Joann Bair, Jack Murphy and many of the other members of the Inland Nautical Society put in to make the INS FALL REGATTA in Riverside a success.

We thouroughly enjoyed the event and look forward to next Spring's Regatta.

If you are within driving distance and were unable to attend this year, put this event on your schedule for next spring. You will see some fantastic boats and enjoy the friendly folks of the INS in Riverside.

Great cross section of good looking boats - thanks for posting those. Looking for a little more info on a couple of those, will post the photo numbers a little later.
Weather certainly was a plus too.

Hello redcraftmodels! And a BIG welcome to Docktalk!

Nice to hear about the history of your boat and Wall engine. If you have your old photos digitized, and know how to upload them here we would LOVE to see them.

Best regards,
-Tom

So... Myself, Steve Little and several others are coming up from San Diego.
I also want to put this out now (even though I will have to repeat it a bzillion times on Sunday) the exposed pushrods in the stern of S-33 are a scale feature and are supposed to be there! I have photos to prove it..
I am looking forward to seeing some old friends and making some new ones!
See Y'all there.
