  • USS SHARK SSN-591: MOD 3 Sea Trials 2019-08-11 (1:48 DeBoer Skipjack)

    A "SHARK" in Flushing, Queens!!

    Getting ready for Groton!!

    This season she's almost a completely new boat with respect to Ballast, Command and Control, and propulsion. I've finally found the paradigm for my future big boats, what works for me! The last 4 years getting back into the hobby, experimenting with new ideas, yet relying on the tried and true, has been fun and paid off for me. That's what I love most about RC Submarine, the joy of engineering.

    Internally she's not your cookie cutter boat, like me, she dives to the beat of a different drum.

    MOD 3 rocks!!

    NEVER underestimate the power of a Sailor who served aboard a submarine.

    Excellent sub and video!
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
