New custom exhaust with 1" manifold and ported no leak flange has now arrived and fitted
So shes ready to hit the water again and see how it performs and how much quieter it is over the zippkits pipe




next job is to sort out and refit the false OB cowl

Went and took the F1 last weekend and ended up with 2mins of total run before having issues with the exhaust and not an easy fix so ended up having to buy complete new exhaust system,new pipe,manifold and flange and exhaust retainer, till i can sort out the the custom pipe etc
parts just arrived and some modding required to the manifold to get it to work so will update soon and hopefully get a chance to run before the sunday  ;)

You can turn up early on Sunday if you like Daz and have a practice (once the rescue boat is on the water)  :-))

Oh No  >>:-( >>:-( >>:-(

you build a brilliant boat, make it look like the bee's knee's, get everyone all geared up and excited to see it beat everything

 then come up with  "didnt go due to some issues"

we need atleast catastrophic issues as a decent  excuse. O0
you could of atleast said
you were all prepped, sandwiches all made, full flask of tea,video batts all charged new film even a tripod and cameraman,the boat was ready to beat everything on the water, you had all your tools in the box, radio all charged up to the nuts, fresh fuel, etc etc and then the car didnt start due to the wife (always blamable) had left the interior light on and
you cant jump start it due to needing the computer remapping as its a special that shuts itself down and goes into anti theft mode when battery is flat etc an realy elaberated on it big style
.

but all we get is "some issues" >>:-(

But then to top it off and make things even worse you say we have to wait till next year !!!!!!!!!!<*<


oh my god, i cant wait till next year to see a vid of this boat  racing <:(

ill go all giddy by then and need to take even more medication.  :P





phill.... :-))

youl probably get a few real yexcuses for people not turning up.

But its realy because their wives/girlfriends wont let them play toy boats.

women seem to be under the impression that a decent bit of weather means we should take them out  >>:-(

they have no idea that good weather means  its boat time.

on boat days we should have some sort of ruling thats lets us do what we want,
without any future repurcussions

i can see no reason why they shouldnt wait till the lakes are frozen over, this would let us take them shopping.
They can even come with us and wait outside the rc shops

(must never ever let them see how much we spend on our stuff, or the prices of anything to do with rc)



phill.... :-)

Of course you could always take said wife/girlfriend with you.  After a suitable time, they become bored sitting round watching, and are then willing to participate as 'spotters', 'lap counters', or any other exciting task which is available!
This also has the advantage that you don't have to bring your own lunch (they usually make much better sarnies than us blokes) and are much better at waking up for early starts!
Model boat racing is a sport for all the family - they will enjoy jeering you just as much as your fellow competitors! :-)

(My wife has read this and agrees - she said I could post it!)

Cheers
Danny
