  • Sailor, rest your oars..

    John Basta, Commodore of the Empire State Model Mariners passed away yesterday from complications of COVID-19.

    He was working on his first RC Sub, a 1:72 Moebius SKIPJACK.

    He was intrumenntal in breathing life back into the Long Island RC Sub group by encouraging us to run with ESMM.

    The man was a true professional, I'm extra saddened by the fact our brief friendship was cut far too short.

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