Virginia Beach Club


Well I did it, I joined the local boat club today. I have sailed with these guys a few weeks now and they are pretty good people so I decided to join up with them. We meet on Sundays at noon on Mnt. Trashmore lake and sail around till we are too hot, too cold, tired, hungry, or afraid of getting in trouble at home. I took some pics of the boats that showed up today. If anyone is interested in the boat for sale then PM me or E-mail me and I will see what kind of info I can get you about it.

Well the flooding we had this week turned out to be a good thing for our lake. It is not only full but too full now!!! The water has receeded about 1 foot in the lake since the flooding on Friday and is still 6 to 8 inches over normal. The lake rose over 3 feet in one day!!!!! Now to the boats

I brought the Thomas Massey out to the lake in hopes that the wind would be calm enough to sail her. She is missing her pilot house, masts and alot of detail but she is fit enough for some sea trials. The boat did really good on the water but it does not like getting hit broadside with a wave it really tosses her around bad. I think that the fins on the lower part of the hull will solve that but the stock ones are wood and really thick so I will make some out of styrene and try that.

We did not have a huge turnout today but we did have a few nice boats come out to play and here they are. I have duty next sunday wich is bad cause that is when my club meets...and... we are going to be at an indoor pool in Virginia Beach. Oh well maybe next year I can make it to this show. THe following week we will be at a 2 day event near the USS Wisconsin. I will make sure to get some pics of our boats and the beautiful BB64 as well.

9-17-2006 Out at a seafood festival.


OK guys here are some really nice pics comming up. This is at a seafood festival in Norfolk, VA. There was a good turnout of boats and even a few tanks as well. (one was amphibous). I gave my Toyama a good sea trial and all went well there. we had little wooden boats for the kids that came to see us and they would sail them in the water with us. Enjoy the pics and as always comments welcome.

P.S. The Amsterdam is still for sale, PM me if you want any info on it.

OK next time it makes it to the lake I will. My club is for electric boats only and my only fast one is gas so it will be out laters. Being an Unlimited Hydro tho it needs smooth water and the last few times I have been to the lake with it the water has been anything but smooth.

That "scratch built" fishing boat is a Hellen trawler from the Latina kit. Nicely done! We run one also. The "lil fishing boat" in your first photo set is a Dumas Victory tug, also nicely executed. Thanks for posting all the fine pictures of these great little ships! I wish there was a club here where we are.

HI Mark thanks for promoting the club. This is Jason by the way. Just to clarify Jake is the one who started the fising boat Doug is finishing up but hes not gone yet, unfortunetly he doesnt have long he was a great guy to go sailing with and we are all going to miss him. The NOAA Whiting is all scratch built and the lifeboat davits work. Darrel does not bring it out much and hes working on a model thats even larger and more detailed. the amphibious tank is a am-trak Dennis scratch built it out of sentra every show he comes to there are always a few Marines that go ape for it. I think one of the neatest boats there was your freghter that was small enough to have fun with in the pool none of my stuff is small enough for it. I think I might just have to do a conversion on a small plastic model so we can run together.
