    RE: The correct way to take and post seaplane pics

    Great shots Tom. Our FF is Sept. 7th this year. We moved it up 6 weeks to try and have warmer weather for better participation. Turns out there will be a FF up here in New England every weekend in Sept. starting with ours. This year we are running it along with another club. Should be a really good event and good turnout.

    Yes, the lady who took the pics is talented for sure.

    My wife's vacation starts Aug. 1, Getting out there in Sept will be tough, we still have no plans,, maybe I can talk her into Cap Cod to visit friends again.

    fyi, the os2u/ys120 was flying better than ever at that event as it should.. hope it keeps up.

    Whacha been working on? haven't seen you post recently

    RE: The correct way to take and post seaplane pics

    My 1984 Blazer. Getting close to putting the body back on the chassis. Tried to get the A-Ray off the water on the gray GB floats and it was a no go. My original A-Ray on GB floats but they were of a white opaque plastic that was much stiffer and sharper cornered than these. I ended up putting an OS .52 in the Ray and all I got was a fast speed boat. Still no lift off. I just got a set of floats from Gerry that I will put on it and see what happens. Flying the Ray with the .52 from land right now and it is a rocket at full throttle. Most my flying is done at half but I know I have plenty of power now to get it off the water with the right floats. I will post some pics of the Ray when I get the floats mounted. Until then, here are a few pics of the blazer body primed and all POR'd underneath. This truck is 30yrs old and will virtually be like new. It a full rotisserie restoration. Originally a military body and chassis with only 25k on it. 91 J code 6.2 diesel and all the creature comforts inside like A/C, pwr windows, tilt wheel, power locks, power rear window, full plush factory rugs front and back, and fully sound proofed. Inside floors have been POR'd also. Very little rot or rust repair was needed just a lot of welding in of plugs in all the drilled holes (for some special military body mounted) and the body filler to fix the waves from the welding. Lots of work that the wife has said must be done before anymore planes. I sneaked the A-ray in but she's got a good eye on me now! LOL
