    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    That YouTube vid that Neil gave us of the FE Cat (100mph??) looks like FE might 'RULE'!!! I'll stick with the 'gassers' for the big stuff. $4-6 per gallon (with oil) vs $40 per gallon for 50% nitro!! BTW...all the rigger talk on here got me to reassemble my Cajun Bullet Gas Rigger. One repaired sponson tip and straightened boom tubes and she's ready for action come Spring. RC

    Yes, gas is the cheapest way to do it. FE surely is not, but FE is definitely FAST!

    $29 per gallon for 50% if I can pick it up in Florida....

    Roger did you notice that FE only goes in a straight line. No turning.

    I tell you one thing. A few years back, we had an FE only crew come in from Ohio. Everything from monos to riggers and they all turned right. 70mph P monos - very impressive. Riggers ran in the high 80's. Some very expensibe hardware though.

    Note to self: thin ca is runny and fast, allways have knife within reach to cut fingers off whatever you are working on... 
    Note to self#2... Left hand needs to hold ca bottle LIGHTLY.... 
    I just had to cut fingers free from thunderboat because of clumsy left handed ca gluing... Had to carry boat attached to hand to get x-acto blade to remove fingers... Lol... I guess this will be toms hydro... Lol.. Left some DNA for future proof of build..moving on to outer chine strips now!!!

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    FE boats can turn, but it's a bit more difficult compared to nitro as the boats are heavier. Same issue with gas boats. Getting a light .21 rigger around a 35 foot radius doing 70 mph is a piece of cake.

    I know what Neil is talking about. A lot of FE boats on Youtube can't turn with a damn. Or the driver is just too scared and has to slow down.

    Scott Parker should start digging this weekend. Hopefully all goes well....

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    It is funny that in most YouTube FE vids the turns are very slow. Maybe the drivers are just being careful not to flip them...but I'm pretty sure that if the CG is right and the hardware is up to the task they should rip around the corners as well as any properly set up hull. We need to put the pressure on klinker19. He has a JAE21 with 4082 power on 5 cells that should provide some excitement. I think he's worried that it has so much battery and motor that if it isn't planing...it will only 'bob' straight up and down!!! RC

    I did recall how Randall expensive boat sank. Then poped up during a heat race. Big money lost. I've seen the cost of the Neu motors.

    One time while gluing tiresI had thin CA squirt out of bottle on my fingers and back of my hand without noticing. Went to take off saftey glasses (the fumes kill my eyes) and wipe my brow,and glued thumb and index finger to the glasses and the back of my hand to my forehead. They didn't make any release that worked back then. Not one of my brightest moments.

    Thanks for removing the excess fingertip. Really trying to watch the weight on this build...

    Tom could always put that FE powerplant into a JAE 45 if the JAE 21 proves to be too small. Might run well against the nitro JAE 45's! Not sure, I don't know electrics. But, I assume that power plant would be illegal for 20 hydro under the Elmira rules. Rick, get to work and build Tom a JAE 45 as well!

    Speaking of electric. Dan Hutchinson is selling a complete electric outboard setup on IW. I'd link, but that's against RCU rules. If I was to do electric, it would be an outboard JAE Zippkit rigger or tunnel.

    Anyone get hurt by Sandy? The wife and I have been sort of trapped in the Boston area since last night and were delayed in Washington DC due to mechanical problems with our plane flying in on the 22nd. This has made coming up and using Neil's extra shovel impossible this trip

Next boat#2 bottom glue up... This one should be easier... If i found a bit more of my bench, i could do 2 at same time, maby i should open both doors and let sandy do her work in here.. Needs a good cleaning... I am afraid i am not going to out last her tonight.. Kids will be home from school tomorrow( today) and i will have to stay home.

    Sandy made her way into my hobby room (basement). [] This is normal for any large amounts of rain....

    Thanks for the concerns. We are inland enough, not so much on the coast. NYC got hit hard!

    There's a whole bunch on NEW boaters in NY today.  Get your membership forms out!

    Intelligence is similar to a dress code. Dont attend a black tie affair wearing cutoffs and a tank top. Know your facts

    Thunderboat built during a hurricane?  +3mph, guaranteed.  I just wrote it on the internet so it must be true.

    Power is back on in webster {at my house anyway}
    Craig I have a couple of guys that are interested in joining the club that run the Aquacraft UL-1's or have that set up in Dumas 36".40 size hydros.
    I think it is know as the P-1 stock or spec set up in IMPBA, there are a bunch of these locally running at road side ponds..would be nice to get them into the club and racing.
    I will be needing to buy some fuel for next year,please keep me in mind if you find a deal

    Hi Mike,

    Sounds good, the more the merrier!

    I'll post on here if we do a Stony Pond fuel buy. It will be a few months still.

    I'll need to get up to speed on the electric classes. The Kendalls run UL-1's in Elmira, so it could be a good class next year. We will wait and see what people bring to the pond in the spring.
