    That's a great idea! Don't have a van, but I'd be willing to chip in..

    I looked into it....the wife wants warm year round. My brother lives there and good deals are there. If I go now and hate it, if the market there turns, we can move again.

    I'm hoping to have some more wheel time with my 33 before the next meet. I have the speed to run with you guys but I need more control.

    how did Jim's run? did you run it against your for comparison?

    Once I get back from Vacation, I am going to start building a hull to run with the DF33's. Not sure which one yet, but we will see. We need to get everyone together to run at the next one day event in Brandon on Sept 7th. I bet 5 or 6 of these boats running would be alot of fun.

    I'll be at the August meet. Also interested in Brandon in September. Got my green SV27 tweeked to run. Just need to practice a bit.

    Is there some way I can find out what frequencies and bands everyone is using? Right now I am on Futaba FM 75mhz channel 72 on the SV, and JR AM 27mhz channel 5 on the SW2. Maybe an email to the group list?

    I run 75MhZ ch.61 however, I use a synthesized radio so I can switch to any channel

    we generally ask who is on what channel prior to powering up the boats, I believe we will have a freq. board soon it has been discussed.

    that's great that you got the boat ready to go.

    The more the merrier. If he wants something to run, I can fix him up. ( by the way, Airboat almost ready.)

    I'll be there with my first upgrade project Sockwave 26.

    Ran it last Sunday for the first time. It was so quick it startled me. Brought it out and back for a temp test without the hatch taped and batteries tied down. Instead of bringing it home and securing everything, I was anxious to GPS it soooo...I hit a turtle or something on the way straight out. One of the batteries pushed the hatch off on the roll and that's all she wrote...Lost the GPS and the canopy... Luckily I baked the motor, rx, and esc @225 in the oven a few times and all seems fine.
    Looking for a new canopy/hatch (old style not available from Proboat)
