    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    .40 hydro is going to be a fun class next year. And it looks like .40 tunnel might be coming back! Lynn has a very nice LeeCraft with mod 7.5cc K&B. He says he has another in the works as well!

    I'm going to start working on the drivers stand as soon as the weather allows it. A second stairs will be added with the added 16 foot length.

    I'm almost done with the analog clock. Once the mechanics are working I will put it aside and start working on the JAE 45 again.

    I mentioned I bought a transit at the meeting. This will be used so that our course is setup nice and straight. It will be used for the timing lights as well.

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    I sent out this memo to T&C
    Yes it was good to see all the old gang ,we got plenty done. Yes we need to talk on how to launch a hull at SP as the driver needs to get up them stairs ,and in the front of the drivers stand ,then the launcher needs to look up ,get eye contact then LOOK back at buoy 6 for any boats coming his way. Our launch is unique as we have stairs to get get up @ every race. we need to talk about this. And of course how to properly bring in a hull. Some one launched me when I was 1/2 way up the stairs this past summer

    This should help with cabin fever (www.intlwaters.com/index.php). CMB and the venerable Crapshooter hulls..........................

    I miss nitro riggers, but not enough to go back.

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    That's what I'm talking about. Bill I do have a extra cowl via you It's for a 45 AB hull but fits the JAE with some cutting I just need to attach it to the hull somehow. When you sold me the hull the 3 spare cowls came with it. Here is my .67 AB SGX And we have several that race-em Chasing Scott for 3 years has to stop. I need to work on "the start" with the clock more. If you hit the start just right you win most of the time. Now I'll have to chase you with the new gas SGX You may find out Nitro is faster. I do need more running/testing time with this hull. The last race of the season, was fast fun. If we add a new 40 hydro class that means 1 more hull to run. I kinda like the 3-4 hull weekend. Any more and it's not fun anymore. It's work. one little break down and your messed up. I kinda like goofing off

    Your 67 is faster than Scott's. Learn to slow down (this one will); don't give away the start; stay consistent on the needle (this has a coarse high flow), and; hold your lane. Now, your 45 SGX is different since it is running high timing. Watch you don't load the engine/pipe when slowing down.

    Who else is running 67 rigger?

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    We now have a forum of our own to discuss private club issues.

    You can also post pictures of your boats and builds so others become familiar with what you are racing this year. This is done in the general discussion that everyone will be able to see. There is a "Stony Pond Members Only" section that is for paid members only. If you are a 2012 paid member you can still join the forum and not pay your 2013 dues until our first test and tune. It's up to you.

    I will be adding a link to the forum from our website as well.

    We still need to be active here so that we can bring in new members.

    www.stonypond.boards.net

    Let me know if you have any ideas to rearrange or add/delete board topics and catagories. I just pulled the topics out of my *****....

    It will take a few testing runs to see just how much I can come off pipe. Without stalling The 45 I have 2 different setups with 2 different hulls When I test both hulls together. Both will have CMB engines Is it spring yet
