My son has just completed his scratch-built X bow gas tanker and has asked me to show it off on Mayhem.   Pete

Well, here we are, the X-bow gas tanker on its maiden voyage on our Knightcote MBC water.   Needs slight adjustment to balance, but sails very nicely.   just to correct any misconceptions, I am 87, so my son is no spring chicken, but we both prefer boats to computers.  (This is about my 6th attempt to post this photo.)    Pete
