Is Tug day still happening with the forecast predicted? Today has the same prediction as this Saturday and although there's rain clouds above my head now, it seems like it finally stopped raining around 4:30-5pm in Sonoma. How did San Francisco fair? Anyone with satellite knowledge want to throw in a prediction?

As far as I know it is still a go. I have heard nothing to the contrary, nor do I know of any contingency plans for moving the date of the event if it should be rained out.






In other word - Cross them fingers guys!

Would our PNW brothers and sisters quit because of a little rain? No!


Tug Fest is on, rain or shine. As Craig says, keep your fingers crossed!

Yesterday Weather Channel said it was not forecast to rain at all. It rained steady for about 4 hours (I tend to notice such things b/cause I ride a motorcycle). IE it is a total crapshoot. The company of folks such as as Aero and Capt. Lee always make the trip worth it regardless.

Just a reminder...

The SFMYC is not the only user of Spreckels Lake.

The Lake is a public lake and is open to all, you do NOT have to be a member of the SFMYC to sail any type of boat on Spreckels Lake, though the run times for gas-powered boats are limited by Rec and Park Department rules to between the hours of 10am through 1pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. More here and here

The SFMYC Sail Squadron has races scheduled for most Tuesday and Thursday afternoons as well as most Saturday and Sunday afternoons and have right-of-way.

On the power side, the most prolific users of the lake are the 'Irregulars,' a loose association of individual model electric and gas power boaters who run on the Lake on a nearly daily basis, and who are not associated with the SFMYC.

Hi Craig, I've been watching the weather here (in Sonoma) since about 6am just waiting for it to clear so I can get to my truck but it's been horrible. And I'm like a cat, hate to get wet. Battling a cold doesn't help that it's raining (or that there are high winds). I think it's safe to say I'm gonna save on gas and a bridge fair today. I hope it's mello enough over there to get a few runs in without the high seas claiming boats!!!

Keep us updated on what were missing! (

Oh Man!!! That tanker is awesome. I knew I would miss some things but that was unexpected. However, judging from the rain, I wouldn't have been able to drop the tug in which would have been even more painful- my deck isn't rain water tight yet.

On the brighter side, since I was just sitting at home staring looking at my boat wondering what else I could modify, I decided to rip out the smoker box and make it better so that's where I'm at with that. A bunch of pieces lying around on a work bench.

I guess it was better than looking at my truck- that would have been nasty.

craig_c, how did you photoshop all of that rain into the Pacific Emanon picture? It wasn't really raining that hard... was it? (Yes, it was)

Depite the rain, we had a good number of boats and willing captains show up, some travelling from as far away as the Central Valley and Southern California to make the event happen! Even though we were all soggy, we had a great time and proved that our working boats work- even on rainy days!

Thanks Aerominded. If I only new how to drive it with a barge that would be even better! I think one of the issues I was having was the mixing adjustments. I'm thinking about changing to tank steering for more accurate control.

The 6'er may have been a better fit than the 7'er... CaptLee can provide a more exact number but I think the 7'er is around 250Lbs (probably more)... that's a lot of barge and the weather wasn't the best! Let me know the next time you can make it to the lake with "Vspeeds", we can get a barge in the water for you to practice with!

Truth! We are lucky to have such a great PSO (and he's a great guy too). And this event is also proof that he is becoming most diabolical in his course designs! This one really took some doing to navigate!

A couple of the upcoming shots of VSpeed's new Southampton tug both onshore and on the course.

Sorry the shots are touch 'soft.' (No, I haven't been to the Bob Guccione School of Fine Art Photography recently) as far as I can tell some water vapor got inside my lens... that lens is probably gonna have to shipped off to repair soon! sigh

Was it wet?? Check out the open cabin doors of Vspeed's tug. He built them open so you could have an unobstructed view into the wheelhouse and see all the marvelous detail work he had done there; maps, books, radios, a case of PepsiŽ and a calendar opposite a cute pin-up!. The rain was coming down so hard he had to put transparent tape over both open doors to keep it out so it would not ruin everything!

As I said, more to come of Vspeed's meticulous build on and off the course...

AEROMINDED!!!!

Actually, I believe that life boat 14 gets shoved out onto the Lake quite a distance, then you and your boat must quickly 'rescue' Sailor Bill and the Maidens from their dire fates on that deserted tropical isle where the soothing trade winds blow warm and moist through tall palm trees standing sentinel shading fine white sand beaches where, in the gentle surf, the flying fish play all day as it laughs and gurgles its way ashore over the sand and amongst verdant mango groves...

Or maybe Areo has something else in mind....

You've got the right idea, Craig! A lifeboat is set adrift on one side of the course... It must be recovered using a paravane and towed on the line, through a series of icebergs finally landing at a dock... Navigation, boathandling and time all count in this fun event. Not just for tugboats- fishing boats, cruisers, etc. welcomed to join!

About the "soothing tradewinds blowing warm", etc... you will have to use your imagination for that part... S.F. in the summer and all...

Went out to Spreckels Lake last Saturday to see what type of gas boats were running and really met a great group of people. Got to see all the beautiful boats that were in the club (I was the moron carrying the dog during your meeting. Sorry guys). Can't wait to get my Winston Eagle Lobster boat back and get it out there. Also renewed my NAMBA membership. So I can get out to Fremont and race. But also for insurance purposes. Can never be too safe.

They are mostly race boats. We are talking about boats that hit mid 50 to 60 mph. You have to be a member of NAMBA and a member of the Model Mariners. I am trying to go through the process of joining their club now. But head on over to Spreckels Lake. I was just out there last Saturday for my first time and everyone was exceptionally nice. Great boats!

Man did you guys miss a beautiful couple of days on the Lake... bright and warm (79 degrees (Sunday)) with a nice wind for the sailboats, both afternoons...

Dad, GrandPa and the kids spend a sunny afternoon together at Spreckels Lake with his Victoria sailboats. (Grandpa is a regular with his Victoria on the Lake)

More to come!

What is he using for power in his lobster boat? I also have the midwest ARR lobster boat and I'm trying to dial it in. P.S. I learned that when any water gets on the deck of that boat it drains into the bilge where the Fiberglass hull and wood deck meet. I carry a sucker and I tilt the boat to get the water to drain back through the gap and I suck it all out.

Catchthis Bjorn is running a stock motor with a Prop Shop 4 blade vintage prop. I have one also with the same prop but a 65 turn Integy lathe motor, because my favorite 55 turn made the spray do just as you said in the cockpit. Bjorn uses a 7 cell battery and gets the same results as my engine change.

Nope, just a real nice day... Don't forget it has easily gotten into the hundreds here in San Francisco during Indian Summer. Looking forward to a lot more days like that before the fog really comes back for the season. And no, no one had the Allman brothers. No sounds of any kind for that matter.

In the meanwhile; a couple of pictures from Saturday!

New Boat on the Lake.


Gerry, one of the the Irregulars who is also now member of the Club, brought his new boat to the Lake on Saturday. He said that he was going to wait 'til Sunday to christen her and put her on the Lake... as you can see, he just couldn't wait the 24 hours for "Tootles" to get her sea legs.

Gerry says he always wanted a "toy" boat and now he has "Tootles the Tug."

We will see more of Tootles later.

Thank you, was a bit rough that day for the Whip but it also helped me keep the speed down. Just wanted to do some testing before I let it all hang out at Fremont. Its looking good for me to be there tomorrow with my Stealth F41 Cat. Thanks so much for all the pictures you take, your a great photographer and cool dude. Cheers

Bought myself the RTR nitro Formula Hydro to take out on the lake! Added a few mods. Still waiting for my other boat to be finished. Can't wait to see you guys again in two weeks. Have to head home for the 4th.

Here's a little something to think upon... The puzzle will come together with the posting of Sunday the 26th's pictures. For now, just take note in the background of a these shots the family and the little girl who loves pink.

If you're really in a hurry for the answer and can't read a few intervening posts and some pretty pictures, click here.

Sunday, June 26th...


Sunday the 26th was another beautiful day and there was a nice surprise, Don and a buddy brought two of the vintage boats that have been in the Club for over 50 years. Had some other nice surprises happen as well.

In the afternoon the Sail Squadron held the fourth in its series of 36-R races.

The Young Lady in Pink Gets to Run Her First(?) Model Boat!


Remember that family that my camera caught Don taking the time to chat with last weekend on Fathers' Day about model boats and the Club? The young lady in pink who seemed to be listening so attentively...


Professor Ciucci's "Model Boating for Everyone Seminar" is in session!


Well......

Well the Park Gods have thrown another Monkey wrench into the works. Tomorrow the S.F. Marathon is on and so you will have to park on Fulton and walk in. Will setup on the North side someplace and see who gets in. Titanic Rescue is ON for the moment.

no.... the SF marathon is July 31, 2011...
I think youre thinking of Sunday Streets?

But no worries, after weeks of exchanging emails and constant negotiations, the organizers of Sunday Streets have agreed to allow entrance to those who are trying to access the lake or the dog park through 36th Avenue and Fulton. This means we could park along the north (Spreckels Lake Dr) and west (36th Ave) sides of the lake, not our usual south (JFK) side.

of course, the road closures are only applies to those who are coming in about after 10:30am. The event duration is 11am-4pm.

yup, no need to thank me, just save me a good parking space next to the lake. =)

nope, its been going on for about 3 years, but it gets hosted in different parts of the city. The last one that caused Golden Gate Park to be closed was April 10th, 2011.

Not really new, just never interfered with Spreckels activities til now.
Must have missed April 10, surprised it wasn't rained out!
Last year it involved only the Great Highway and part of Lincoln Way for bikes.

http://www.sundaystreetssf.com/

Just another obstacle to having a good time in Golden Gate Park. Get out there early for any parking spaces available. Add this to plans for next year.

Back when the comedy day was held at the polo fields, I had to park on Fulton and walk about four blocks...

Good luck to all dedicated sailors tomorrow!
