Guest Boat from Kentucky for Wooden Boats on Parade


Looking at the poster for this years Wooden Boats on Parade, I wanted to report that a new Captain of the HMS Surprise is going to sail down the east coast from Kentucky and go around the horn and back up the west coast to try and make it in time for this years Wooden Boats on Parade event. This was the latest photo of her underway as of two days ago.

CaptLee is correct- Fleet day was officially moved to Oct.28 and Fishing Boat Gambler is TBD --- per the last two club newsletters. Now I know who reads 'em, and who doesn't

Snake on the Lake!


No not any of the usual suspects [If this subject matter disturbs you, please don't read further.]https://static.rcgroups.net/forums/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

Watch where you're sailing or motoring!https://static.rcgroups.net/forums/i...milies/eek.gif

Found this on instructables.com:

Make a swimming Robo-Snake
http://www.instructables.com/id/Make...ng-Robo-Snake/

Looks like a fun project.
She should have painted the "snake" in some camo to [partially?] match the lake, to be more ominous.
We once had a model train 'running on the lake' and the submerged unit was painted to add to the mystery

How about a blast from the past. Wooden Boats on Parade, circa 1996. Done in two parts. Here's a half hour you'll never get back.

That is a great video Pat! I recognized a 'younger' Bob Hererra, and Kay Tillman. Not to mention Ken Vaulk. I also recognized a few of Bob's boats as well as your own Chris~Craft.
