    BG, Hugh, Larry & Scott do LSO although it was just ran as an oval since we were missing a course marker after the LSH run. When a fast moving hydro punches an inflatable ski pylon the marker loses.
    I think Hugh took this one but could be wrong. I get confused with “who’s on 1st” when looking through the viewfinder.

    Thanks Chris. I didn’t realize you were shooting this heat until I got home and started processing movies. Here’s Hugh, me and somebody new (another Bill) in a round of the Q boats. I got a pretty bad start but managed to work my way back up until the lvc cut in. Man we did a lot of laps. No wonder I'm so tired.

    Here’s a short clip of me trying to get my H&M hydro set up after changing it over from LSH to P sport. This was it’s 1st splash since the transplant so it’s not “all that”. Would have been a P sport heat (or slaughter) if Larry hadn’t spun a prop dog.

    Seeing I didn't make it passed lap one turn 3 in either race.. it wasn't me.

    Scott and myself running the “dreaded STD” class (even if mine is “illegal”). This was the 1st outing of my Mean Machine twin with Tacon 3674 1700kv motors. I think it needs a “barn door” for a rudder. 1st full throttle down the straight and crank the wheel to the right. It keeps going straight. Panic and let off the throttle. Hard hook. After a few laps I did figure out it would corner at speed, just not at WOT. It still needs a wider rudder though.

    Another round of LSH with just Chris & Larry running. This should make you feel better Chris. Larry knows how to go spear fishing too. His “catch” refused to let go though.
    That’s it for video taken today. I did snap a few stills though. One or two of them show just how glassy the lake was when no boats were churning it up.

    01/08/12 It was an unusual weather conditions day for Ackerman today. Just a touch of breeze and water that was almost a mirror like Encore was on the 1st.

    1st up is Dan’s recently acquired Team Believer cat. Somehow the esc endpoints missed being set and it was a little bit on the slow side.

    Here's a round of LSO with Scott, Brian, Hugh, Brian G, & Rich (did I miss anybody?) I’d say Scott was the winner of this one.

    Here’s the dreaded STD’s. Rich, Brian, Scott and me. I can tell you for sure who the winner wasn’t. I gotta get a better rudder setup on this thing. I think this one was Rich’s win.

    My 47” mono off on a solo run. Seems like the demons of Ackerman were haunting me today. Or maybe I just can’t figure out how to drive on calm water.
    Watch closely as the video approaches the one minute mark.

    That mono flip came out better than I thought. Right when I was zooming out to get a nice wide angle of the turn she went over....

    Seemed like the demons were really after me today. Between that flip, my little hydro submarining then popping back up at the right time to get cut in half by Chris (an exageration but.... pretty accurate too) then me spinning the MM out right in front of you. I was not having a good day. Oh... and there was the launch of my SC off the back of "new guy" Bill's H&M cat in our 1st round of Q. Luckily for me that OSM wasn't captured by the camera.

    Maybe I can drive on smooth water after all. Must have just been the Ackerman demons messing with me today. Here’s a little Q offshore with “new guy” Bill vs old man Bill. I really like the way my Sprintcat handles.

    That's the end of today’s recorded runs. There were lots more of them that didn't get shot.

    OSM.... that took me a second. Im suprised my twin didnt have a scratch on it from our contact which caused mine to go into orbit.

    Nobody picked up the camera and shot them. I was actually holding a 1st place lead in them (Hugh Ray & me) until I tried to lap Hugh and hit his wake wrong.

    We had another really calm day at Ackerman today. This makes two run days in a row. Makes it really hard to race since most of us don’t know how to drive in water that flat.

    Here’s Hugh and I in a little OPC (tunnel) race. Some “rubbing is racing” action around the 1:15 mark. Happily no noticeable damage for either of us.

    Here’s a fully loaded LSO heat. Not a very good percentage of finishers though. I’d call it as Scott’s win through the viewfinder with Larry 2nd. Y'all can correct me if I'm wrong.

    Any damage to the MM that hit the buoy?
