where is freeedom lake? I am down in south st. pete. Avanti27 on here is also in st. pete. He has a sv27 and I am running a blackjack. We usually hit up a pond on sundays on the corner of Starkey and Briandairy.

it is probably 5 to 10 minutes from 19. You can just take Briandairy/118 ave to starkey rd. Take a right (north) and its your first right. You can't miss it.

I have no idea who you sent a message to in Land O Lakes. It wasn't me as far as I know ;-)

We just started the club idea a week ago. We already have 10 members. We would be happy to have you.

We will get together after the holidays. Probably mid January. Right now, we're collecting email addresses for anyone interested. We will put out an announcement to everyone about the first meeting and announce the time and place then.

Send me a PM with your email address and we'll get you on the list. It would be great to have you!

Hi WEST COAST we have a club over in Fort Pierce which is straight across the state when you all get organized let us know maybe we can set up a race series between clubs sounds like fun to me.
We currently have around 45 members check out the web "www.waveblasters.org" we race the s.v. 27s stock and modified the start of the new year we will be adding a sport hydro class with the s.v. motor and speed controller also a p-mono class and a p-tunnel class if we can help you all in getting a club started let us know through our web site.

thanks mike

Hi Mike,
Yeah, well aware of the waveblasters. You guys have a really active club. I'm hoping to get over that way one of these days to visit you! It would definitely be fun to have interclub races for sure! I know you guys have a bunch of the Micro Hydros from Mini Cat Racing over there. How about a class for those too? We will have a class for them at our club. Send me an email with more detailed info on the sport hydro class and your mono and tunnel classes. I hope you will separate the outboards from the cats in your tunnel class. There's a lot of electric outboard interest but in the IMPBA rules they have to run with cats. Not fair.

Jim

sorry for the question here, but where can I find a break down of the rules for each of the classes.

such as the p tunnel class

Mike I will probably be over that way on a few weekends during Jan. and feb. I will be working on a race boat in stewart if all stays according to plan.

big wind= big waves= big fun

the SV spent a lot of time under water my sealing efforts have paid off NO LEAKS I can not say the same for obrien but he might be ready to let me seal his boat at this point.

nice meeting you today

I just swapped in the stock motor so I can rule out the possibility of the water jacket on the ammo motor. The other thing I noticed was the motor wasn't perfectly lined up when I pulled it out, so maybe the offset might have been allowing water in through the drive line. Doesn't make much sense, but I quess its possible.
