Sure, I'll take a camera. I promised my teachers pictures too so I need to take it.

The meeting went well, Tom couldn't make it but Jay and I had some fun running our boats, and as I promised I've got plenty of pictures. Happily it was a beautiful day outside (with some wind) and we had fun. From now on I think this club should probably meet once a month. Does the second weekend of every month work for you guys (starting 11/8/08)? Now for what everyone's been waiting for, the pictures:

P.S. If you want more pictures of either boat just ask, I have plenty more.

Sorry I couldn't make it but it sure looks like you guys had a lot of fun. Thanks for the pics they look great. So the 8th or 9th looks good for me.

Its okay that you couldn't come this time, but I can't wait to meet you next time. By the way, is this enough encouragment to finish your boat?

trawlerlover, how did you get your lifeboat davit to pass through the upper deck to the lower one? On mine the overhang wasn't wide enough. I double checked the superstructure and I'm sure I did it correctly. The superstructure fits good on the deck bulwarks so it is sized correctly. I don't know where I or the kit went wrong. Since mine isn't the "Carol Moran" I made a flange for the upper deck and the davit doesn't pass through on mine (minor design change).

I had the same problem, the roof wasn't big enough. I ended up just adding some extra styrene to the roof to make it the correct size. I do have a picture of it but it isn't the best (apparently I didn't take a top-down).

Based on a suggestion from Tom I'm posting a reminder that the club is still on for tomorrow 11/8/08, as long as the weather's good. I hope to see you there Tom and Jay.

Just a reminder there is NO meeting this saturday (12/13/08). I have to finish up my science fair project. Jay, Tom if you want to meet you guys can arrange it but I'll be busy. By the way have you started your boat yet Tom?

Thats ok. This is a busy season. Next month would be better. Besides, it looks like it might be cool this weekend.

Hey guys, just a reminder that the boat club is this weekend. I don't know if we want to move it back (timewise) slightly though, because if we go at 11 my sister will probably have to come and she hates boats. We'll see but I'll definitely make it as long as the weather is good.

Well its that time again. I hope we can all make it out this weekend (same time, same place). However right now the Carol's in dry dock due to a broken motor mount. I should have it fixed and charged by this weekend though. I hope to see both of you there this time.
