Model boat training
« on: May 16, 2010, 12:42:42 AM »

Hi every one had the guys out on the water for some training made them drive around a figure of eight then tow another model around the same.Bit of a twist the skipper faced away (back to the water ) from the model and the Engineer gave directions as he was facing the model and the water it took awhile and a few laughs something different for the guys to do.Any one else out their doing similar training or fun things tassie48.

We used to do that in regattas it was referred to a "Conning", it was quite fun some times. It is rumored to have lead to divorce proceedings in one husband and wife team though.

Blind Steering, can be fun or frustrating. Depends upon your partner.
