I know there are some gas boaters in the area, but where they are I don't know. You might try putting flyers in the local hobby and toy stores and see what you get for a response.

BD13, are you going to bring up your boat? You guys might try meeting up at the HARM and go from there. BTW, the forcast for Saturday is upper 70's to low 80's

Sorry Mark, Lakewood is southwest of Tacoma and just north of McCord AFB and Fort Lewis. Northwest of Seattle is Ballard, Shoreline and Edmonds. If you go north, you will run into Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, Mukilteo, Everett and Marysville(my stomping grounds)

Unfortunately I won't be bringing any of my boats on this trip as I have some family plans. . . but maybe next time!

I'm in Kirkland and I have a large gas 55" Dumas Scarab 38KV. It's way scale and hauls pretty good with a new Sikk 27cc/Zenoah Hybrid. I can be reached by e-mail at ablettdc@aol.com if you want to run sometime. I don't mind the drive if you don't.

I only have about a days worth of tinkering to set up my radio box and install a new flex shaft and I could be up and running a new mod motor. I'm open to running anywhere around the Seattle area or within an hours drive or so. I usually run at Juanita beach as it's well protected from large waves and only about four feet deep.

I currenlty live in Denver, however will be making a move to Seattle (Hopefully) by September. It would be nice to get a crew together to run with. I am building an AM Conquest w/a QD25.. Should be a fun boat. I'll get with you all closer to my move.

Golden! I have been discouraged to find that the Namba8 district is loosing pond space to run so I really just want to hook up with sport boaters to have a blast and make some new friends. I should have my boat up and running to test the new mods on my Sikk 27cc hybrid this weekend. ablettdc@aol.com

I started out with an Enforcer boat running a Homelite. It was a good introduction into gas but I very soon found that I longed for top performance. I have since learned how to mod the jugs and went to a 27cc Hybrid for kicks when my jug got damaged on my play boat. I wouldn't put much time into the Echo, but that's just me. When it comes to power to weight ratio, Zenoah or even a cheaper Sikk is the way to go in my book. Just my .02.
