I have not talked to Bob, but I thought he was working on something for you? I could be mistaken. Either way, I can make my own real easy. No machining, just cut the 1/4" x 1/2" stock, drill, and tap. Funny, I have a milling machine at work, but dread having to use it. I'm not a machinist and not a painter either...

Side note. Looks like it's going to be another few weeks before we can get on the Stony Pond ice and take measurements for the timing lights and pull off the island dirt. It's warming up again and the rain coming will not help either....

I ordered the 1/4" x 1/2" 6061 aluminum for the engine mounts. I will cut you a set. Do you know how to tap? If not, I can do that too, but I can't promise perfection. Sometimes I do good, and somtimes not so much.

I also ordered a pack of 50 rubber grommets for the tub walls. They will fit 3/16" thick tub walls, ID is 1/4", and they fit in a hole diameter of 7/16". I have not ordered nylon screws and spacers yet. I may go with smaller diameter stainless screws and aluminum or nylon spacers. If I use the smaller screws, a 1/4" OD screw sleeve would be used in the grommet. This would allow tightening of the screws without compressing the rubber grommet too much.

Looks good! Is it as tight at TDC as most say?

There MIGHT be an opening to pull the dirt off the island Sunday morning. It was frozen pretty good this morning. The area that freezes last was about 4 inches thick. It needs to be atleast 6" thick from what I have read. Between today and Sunday morning it is suppose to be well below freezing, so I'm hoping the ice will thicken up enough. I'd wait longer to be safe, but next week we are getting a warm spell again; 48 degrees on Monday. For the dirt removal, I will only be the one needed to go on the ice. I will be wearing a life jacket just in case, and have a rope handy. I do need someone to be around just in case 911 needs to be called.

I will check the ice thickness tommorrow and let you guys know.

Anyone interested in coming out let me know.

Craig,
I would let that ice get to 6" thick due to the concentrated weight you will moving over it. Be safe and make sure someone is with you.

Yup. Since the ice will be marginal, the plan is to use my flat bottom row boat tied with a rope to my tractor. That should be safer than using my ATV and trailer.

Ironically, a customer just came into our office and he is going ice fishing tomorrow at Mendon Ponds. He says the ice only needs to be 3" to walk on.

here's some info about ICE

4 inches will hold about 200 pounds making it safe to walk on
5 inches will hold about 800 pounds making it safe for an atv or snowmobile
8-12 inches will hold 1500 - 2000 pounds suitable for small car group of people
12-15 inches suitable for vans and light trucks
I'd give it a good foot nd a half 2 feet before larger trucks and deisels
remember
3 inches or less keep off
ice dose not always freeze evenly it coul be 4 inches in one place and 2-3 inches just feet away be carefully on fresh ice!

The quality of the ice is just as important as the thickness.

Black (clear) Ice is the safest. There's no air bubbles within the ice making the water molecules bond to each other with more strength then ice with air bubbles.

White (bubbly) Ice holds alot of air pockets. Making it weaker then Clear Ice.

Be Safe Guys and Have fun.

Luc W.

Cool. I figure 10:00 am would be good. Bring warm clothes including gloves. I will have a camp fire going to keep warm. You probably could drive your truck to the pond like we do when we run boats. We don't have much snow and the ground should be solid. Otherwise, just pull down to the old tennis court where your van is parked.

I'll check the ice again this afternoon and confirm the thickness, but I'm pretty sure we are good to go.

Thanks.

It's a NO GO. I just checked the ice and it is still at 4"; never got any thicker. Probably because the pond is spring fed....

We might be pulling the dirt off this spring with the aluminum swim raft....

I will be within an hour of the Winternats site over the weekend. I hope to stop in and say hi to Pete and Joe. I'm not sure anyone else from Elmira made the trip. Roger

We are having a great time here at the Winter Nats!

I did well with my Bullitt Thunderboat. In the video I was just picking the boat up after the race as I overshot the very narrow retrevial area.
400 then 300 then 400 then 300 points. I ended up with 300 as apparently someone passed me and we didn't see it.
I respect the final decision of the CD. All is well.

The ABox Crackerbox was running very well. Very well until I cut across another boats wake and flipped.
We have lots more racing to go.

It was a little warm today (84) but we managed...

Great people and a really good time!

Joe
