    Dawn dishwashing liquid, a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, or a 3M Greenie pad will take care of the ring! Simple Green, too if you can get it!! :)

I will take the jabs and figure I have plenty of pool time to work on the subs once I am there. Really looking forward to meeting many faces I have only read about or communicated through electronic formats. Anyways, let the journey begin!
      Safe travels sir.

        Don't give the Canadian too much credit, Steve. Rick just watched one-too-many Bob Burgers episodes.

        (guess I did too).

          Stop breaking stuff, you idiot! Slow, steady steps, pal. See you pool side.

              Thank you Rob! Planning on taking video and photos!
              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'm bringing ten. I'm sure there will be one in the litter you want to play with.

                      It seems to be my nature to break things. No argument on the idiot part.
                      For the record, I will not cuddle with you pool side if you get cold, just say’n.

ID:	153717 Left the sonar dome for last to paint. Damn tape leaked a bit. Touched it up. All I need to do is pack. Me and the wife are leaving at 1300 Thursday. We’re going to eat Thursday night and I’ll see everyone bright and early Friday morning. I would come out Thursday night but Dave needs his beauty sleep.

                            The pond is about 14ft deep at the center, if memory serves. 90% of it is concrete lined except the very center.

                            I'm flying in tonight and will try to make the restaurant. Likely I'll be in around 6:30pm or so if the car pickup process goes smoothly at Chattanooga.


                            See y'all there!
