Nice day on the Lake today, quiet, sunny but cold and windy; not quite the Arctic Express, but working on it. Surf and the breakers down at the beach were way up and I hear they were competing down at Maverick. I imagine that the waves were probably monsters today. Water was high at the Lake as well, sloshing over the edge with a Northeasterly wind behind it.


Had a few of the regular folk out, Club and Irregulars alike. A couple of the big gas boats were out as well plus Capt.Billy's gas powered Philippine Coast Guard Boat tooling around the entire Lake.


Don and CplFuzz were out as well as well as Cannonman. Cannonman has got a new FPV video system in his Atlantic tug! Very , very cool!

Paul is going to be fine....



This is to let everyone know that 'Laser' Paul (seated), will be fine.

'Laser' Paul, so-nicknamed as he is a laser and light show provider to the mega-entertainment industry, sustained a two incisions on the forearm from the prop of his Beaver aircraft while handling it at the Lake Sunday which required six stitches, but should cause no further damage other than a really pretty 'bragging' scar and cautionary "No st! There I was... " tale.

Hopefully Paul is resting tonight. He was left in care of family after getting sewn back together at the ER.

Other than the excitement with getting Paul driven to emergency and patched together, it was a lovely, though cool and windy day on the Lake. Pictures coming soon.... (NO! No close ups of the wound site.... However the mpeg... just kidding )

Just a reminder that accidents can happen even to the most conscientious, so let's all play safe out there!

Quick update on Paul


Paul is doing very well. He reports that he went to the Doctor today - the wound site is closed and healing nicely, no infection etc. so he should be able to get the stitches out in under a couple of weeks. All's well that ends well.

Moved the buoys for the electric go-fasties about 2pm Sunday; Don and Gerry in the boat and Kenny and me doing the sight lines from the shore.

The western turn buoy claimed a a tunnel hull who hit it square on and cracked the joints where the sponsons join the hull. Let's be careful out there... If you're learning, unsure or you have 'too much' boat: slow down! If it is a technical issue, pull your boat off the water until remedied!!

More than likely a depth preception issue.
