    Just a note... this event has been scheduled to take place just two weeks ahead of SUBFEST. Lots of RC awesomeness in a short span of time.

            You wouldn't be able to catch me, if I brought it, which I'm not this year. Well maybe.

                You're lucky I had to put the Torp development on hold for the move!

                But at least I can still see you guy's before I leave!!

                    Highlights from Groton. I did not do any video this year. I have more pics, will post someplace eventually. Ray also has many pics to share. The base commander, a captain, paid us a viisit with his two kids. He was very interested in what we did. We also had two guys from the Coast Guard visiting and running a few of David's subs.

                          Lets try this. I posted all of my pictures on Google Drive and shared them with public. If you can't see them from this link please say so.

                          https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...ue?usp=sharing

                          I may have to reduce the file size so they load faster. Let me know.

                            Ken or anyone, Is that super large sub a Seawolf? Who owns that sub? It is good to see David is still.....well David! I know what to prepare for in GA.
                            If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                              I did not get his name Tom. It had 23 on the sail so that would be the USS Jimmy Carter.

                              David is a character! Gotta love him as he is. Even my girlfriend enjoyed hearing him.
