      Ok...ok....

      I don't want Capt Gaito having a cow as I had fun with this (though I prefer the Silverback persona)

      The real me, and it's Sausage amd Mushroom Toppings, which can look like slugs!

      You can see I like little dogs and a good stoagie as well! 3x Rescue Chi's, I like to live on the edge.

                      Hi Guys, not sure if this translates correct, a "Besserwisser" is somebody who always knows a better way to do things ( in a negative way) and is igorant to the knowledge of other people.

                      But back to the scheduled programm

                              Welcome aboard Zach. I hope you can dive in and get your feet wet soon. Try to start simply and build your skills and understanding. I recently completed one of Bob Martin's 212 dynamic divers and it runs really good in my pool. Easy to build and solid performance. It will be a viable contender in the sub races at Subfest this year. A very fun little boat.
