Retired for now
I don't mind getting old. I can tell the bill collectors to KMA 'cause I won't live long enough to pay them off anyway. Ha! Love it.
Some people say that he who dies with the most toys wins. I disagree. I say that he who dies owing the most money wins. If there isn't enough left to pay everything off then tough patootie. Pete

Ok that's enough questions for one post....
They were made by a company called "Swimways" and I bought mine from an online store called "Kool Kids". That was several years ago, and I believe the sharks are out of production and long gone from shelves. It is radio controlled. My battery in the Tx was low and I lept losing contact. Otherwise, I would have made it look more realistic with the swimming action like I did in the other video I made of it.

I guess I am a 'minus'.

My doc once said to me "getting old ain't for sissies".

Thanks. My leg feels much better after the shot. But I might still need arthroscopic surgery.

Oh, and I have to have laser eye surgery on Tuesday, for glaucoma pressure building up.

Where have you been hiding that boat Tom? That's a beauty but I don't remember seeing it before. Course I don't remember what I had for breakfast this morning either and I'm still eating it.
That boat needs a black or blue tape waterline Tom.
Heck,I have to go to work this morning so you all have a great day. pete
PS: I'm gonna get my CC out today and get her ready for the pond. I havn't sailed any of my boats in over a year now.

This boat belongs to a fellow who participates on the competing forum. Anyway, we have connected over time and he is also the same guy who I did the photos and video of his PT Boats a few weeks ago.

Here are a few more pics and video of the maiden voyage yesterday:

It's 10 minutes long. Grab a cup of coffee!

Thanks Rick!

Here is another underwater video, this time of a Springer. You can see it go underwater like they do when under a lot of power.
