    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    Hey Guys,
    I have a PS295 hull I purchased in the spring that I am planning to build this winter. Below is the original thread from the designer/builder Mike that I bought it from. One of my friends in Buffalo has one and is still getting it dialed in. We are running them with OS lower units and UL-1 motor/esc on 4s. I'm sure it would take the Proboat outboard. I would be happy to bring it out if you want to take a look at it. Really nice hulls but not cheap.
    This is the build thread.

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    I'm not an IW member. I can't handle all the subscriptions for all my current hobbies. I just got a puppy and haven't found time to read on how to care for a puppy! 

    I like fast but not competitive fast. I like to pull the trigger, chase geese, laugh at close calls and hang them up for another day's use. If I wasn't into so many other things I'd probably be 100% into the racing scene. These are a lot of fun and I enjoy watching this thread to see what you guys are into.

    Tom, 
    Thanks for chiming in. I'm not a regular part of the crew and probably wont work on this much until the winter. I'll definitely take a look at the thread you linked and ask any questions. Thanks!

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    Most often you see guys selling a good hull after the season. They just want a new hull, nothing wrong with the old one a ding here and a scratch their. I got most of my hulls at the races. Usually they just get tired of running a hull class. I'm all over Vees cats riggers gas nitro. And my newest hull No tunnels or Cracker box.

    That NR will do you well. Mine has been trouble free for 2.5 seasons and has won some races too.

    Did Glenn tell you that you need a remote needle with his carb mod? He removes the fixed factory needle and the low speed. No big deal, just something else to buy. They are pretty cheap unless you buy an O.S. needle, which is what I do.

    Edit: Dan's Crafts and Things can order that needle and have it in a few days. That's where I got mine.

    The HS 85 MG is a micro servo, I would run a mini servo on the rudder. I run both HiTec and Futaba servos and have not had a failure yet. Knock on wood.... Metal gears are needed on the small servos.

    The Traxas waterproof is also a good rudder servo. In standard size. Hitec does have waterproof

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    Rick, when hooking up your rudder servo linkage, make the servo arm as short as possible and the rudder arm as long as possible. This will make the steering less twitchy. Not much rudder movement is needed to turn the JAE.

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    Hi Guys,
    Great time here in London.  Weather was hot, but with a good breeze, wasn't as bad as it was in July.
    Here is a vid of Tim's new twin, pretty impressive.  Sorry about the poor quality, need to figure out how to fix that.
    Lots of gas monos and riggers, real fun to watch and fast for the most part (as much as we hate to admit it).
    We haven't had the best of luck ( can you say needle settings and FORGET THE STARTER BELT?).
    Having a great time and looking forward to tomorrow's racing.
    Sorry we can't make it to London - good luck to all.
