The lazy man's boat recovery....
« on: July 23, 2008, 10:33:56 PM »


So I just thought I'd have a high speed lap around the lake with my 1/24 PT Boat and....

RATS!  Into the weeds at the far right hand corner 200yds away!



Out with the rowing boat....

Got to the far side of the lake, checked the PT Boat over and thought hmmmm....

There has to be an easier way.

Oh yes...



Let the PT take the strain :D

The PT Boat was the Jack-of-all-trades in the Pacific, it wasn't unusual to find them taking on all manner of recovery tasks.

:D

Just carrying on the tradition ;)

Usually? Loads! :) However whilst towing it seemed to 'dig in' rather than thrash - most effective progress was between a quarter and one third throttle.
