Several of the District boat racers also fly planes and have known the Hodges (three brothers) for years. Mac wanted a place for float planes and to hold RC boat races. One thing led to another and this is the result. :thumbup:

You guys are very fortunate. How deep will it be when completed?

It's going to be interesting to see how the site works out and how many flyers become boat racers.
The pond will be 4' deep.
