Hi Capt. Lee, What is parking like around the pond? Cost? Im in Burbank, anyone want to carpool?

There is ususally enough parking around the pond (on the street, parallel) and the parking is free... always best to get there a little early to ensure a close spot... we do have an informal "loading zone" though if you need it-

Hope to see you there!

I thought the park was going to drain the lake that weekend for weed abatement?

No I'm hoping to take a newer one out by then, still haven't got the reverse problem figured out on the Wilder.

I think I told you it's a "Misuri" push tug I got from a guy online. Won't take a lot of work but I need to find all my tools after my move.

I don't know Bernard... the last outing 2 weeks ago to Union City left me with (yet another) burned up ESC. It's sitting on my workbench with the wiring pulled out. I want to install a dual speed controller setup, but I have to come up with the $$ first, and all of my spare change has been going into the Newport lately.

Hummmm, I wonder what is going on with that boat? It has been eating ESCs like crazy!

Newport is looking very nice! just saw the updates in the sailboat forum!
