    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    To All Stony Pond Club Members - if you plan on attending the Jan 6th meeting please pm me your e-mail address, if you haven't already, (or if you want the world to know your e-mail, post it on this thread!).  Would like to have an idea as to how many are coming.  Will e-mail to all the details as to our address, and a short list of what we might want to discuss for the upcoming season.  Would welcome any additional items to add to the list that you think we should talk about at the meeting.  Also, I'm planning on e-mailing the "minutes" from Jan. 6th to all for any action items that need to be completed prior to our next meeting.  (So far, I've recd e-mail addresses from:  bdog1; billlk44; parshallboatworks; Joe P; Dick T).  Others have said they are coming (great!) but I don't have your e-mail addresses.
    Hope that you and your families have a good and safe holiday.
    Thanks, Cindy

    Nice, pond was to small first of all for a boat that fast
    things happen fast at them speeds[X(]
    Things happen fast at any speed but more so when you're dealing with boats capable of over 50mph. I damaged a scale boat the same way, taking my eyes off it for half a second. I now have to repair a cowl, a sponson, the rudder and the tail set and I was only going between 35 and 40

    I better stay away from the twin 80 hull. I know my limits. It wasn't that long ago I thought the 21 JAE was fast. We don't have a class for the twins anyways.

    Smart move my friend. You are going to have your hands full with the 67 SGX. When you are ON it, speeds will be 75-80 easy.

    Stony Pond is still too low. Let me know when and where you will be doing the maiden voyage. I may have time to leave work and stop by for a little. I work in East Rochester, so I might be close. What address is the pond at?

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    Rick...others may have different opinions on breaking a gas engine in... I am from the school that says not much break in is needed. I think if you go to the pond with a 500ml bag and run a varied throttle with only a second or to wide open from time to time...you will be good to go after just one or two bags. I see no need to bench run a full bag through it. There is no cylinder to piston lapping going on like a nitro engine. The prop is unloaded anyway. I think it is better to just run it sensibly under load. I'm guessing 500ml will be at least 20min run time at part throttle. What time is this going down tomorrow?? (Sorry...I see it says around noon!!) Roger C

    Hey Roger,
    Coming out tomorrow??? I put the address on a post,might be the last blast of the summer... pretty warm out tho.... mid 40s forcasted for tomorrow!!!certainly should run cool enough..LOL.. I agree just run em.. too much of a pain in the butt to hook up pump to 2 waterlines and no load.. Bob thought it would be good to check needle settings but again no load.. I think they are different in water under load right?(i know this is the case with nitro,but this is my first gas boat)hope to see you there.

    Rick,
    They are different under load. As Roger said, moderate the throttle and keep it on the slightly rich side. Not too much. Good luck.

    Good Point Joe !
    Rick -I will plan on meeting you at the pond at 12:00 I drive a brown Astro van,Glad you got some run time on your motor -Call me If you run into problems and cannot make it.
    Looking forward to meeting some of the other guy's.

    Just a FYI there is wild life on the pond that needs to be avoided at all times {a Very large White swan,ducks ect.} they normally go to the far edge of the pond once you start running motors but keeping a eye on their whereabouts is nessesary,especaily when running the faster stuff .

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    I found the wild life on the pond to have no fear of the boats even with all their noise. The swan will not get out of the way i had to drive around it, (very surprising). Have fun tomorrow the working stiffs will be thinking of you all. May your props spin backwards.
