        Nice handeling boat. And the visibility was not bad for a lake. Did you use the 808 camera-in-a-tic-tac case? Good stuff!

        You did wonders with the awful I-53 kit, my friend.

          Thank you very much SIR it means a lot. Yes it is the 808 in a tic-tac case. I am very happy with the way it works for the price, and it is small enough to fit it anywhere.

              I finally got one of those key-chain cameras that actually works, and the Tic-Tac containers -- hope to have my little u/w video system working for the upcoming October event in Newport News.

              You're idea, and a great one too!

                  Hi David, Just received some photos of the weekend taken by "Scott T". This one will give you an idea of how I fitted the sub cam.

                    Posted 3 videos the other day, one is on how the boat runs, another on what makes it work, and one on it's special features.

                        Wish I had something to report, but other than roughing out the new bow shape onto a review kit, I've progressed no further with an, 'I-53 upgrade fittings kit'.

                            We had our first good hot day since last summer so it was off to the local watering hole with a couple of friends Scott and Bruce and a few subs. Great way to spend a Thursday. Good weather, good company, and a few subs, what more does a man need?
                            I had 2 of mine, the Alfa look alike, as well as the i25 and one that I am fine tuning for a friend, a RAN Oberon class and Scott had his Peppermint there in its last stage of trimming.
                            These photos were kindly taken by Scott, he is a good man.
