    WTB Sport 40

    I have a Blazer Sport 40 for sale. With or without (preferably with) the CMB rs45 that is in it currently. I believe the pipe is an AB parabolic routed to the transom. Hardware is Speedmaster recycled off of my PT40. The boat was built by Bob Blazer and rigged and painted by Mike Starrett. Unless one of them spit on it, it's never been wet. I don't want to fool with sp40 or nitro for that matter really. If you are interested, I'll send pics. I think you are local. If you are, it shouldn't be a problem to meet up to see the boat. Jamie
  2. Provided that I wake up in the a few hours I'll be there with the cat and Whip.
  3. I'm going to be there to help with the race for sure. Going to get the cat lined out tonight and hopefully the whip in the water tomorrow. Jamie

    WTB Hi Jack mount for a K&B 3.5 OB

    Would you know it if you saw it? I have a hi-jack mount that is never used and a couple of years old. Would be glad to part with it for a fair price.

    Heat makes power. Untill the engine ceases to function mechanically anyway.

    Carbon fiber safety

    Find a local archery shop and see if they will cut them for you on their arrow saw. Additionally, they will have a surplus of short pieces of carbon tube laying around.

    Would you buy an engraved boat?

    There will be pics if I do it. This is just one of my concerns. The thickness of the ply and the coating are others. I really just wanted to know what your reaction might be to a boat for sale.
  9. We have a laser engraving shop in the area. I think that they can engrave on wood. If that is the case, I was thinking of having a name or logo or something engraved into my Whiplash deck. How much would that deter you from buying a boat? Once it is engraved, it's not coming out, you paint the deck or you see the engraving. I'm not that far away from decking the boat, so now would be the time to have the decks engraved.

    servo taking a dump or just wet

    I have been. I run a 2s LiPo pack through a voltage regulator. Is this a widely known issue? I wonder if Hitec has a position. I did have a 225mg fail in the same boat. I thought I got it wet one to many times. Maybe it was voltage. Although, I've run 225's on a 9volt battery. Not for a long while now. I'll flip the switch on the regulator and drop the voltage some more. I went through 3 throttle servos before I discovered it was a receiver problem. I changed the receiver after our club open water where I cooked the 3rd throttle servo and had no problems through 5 heats. Swap the receiver if you have a spare.

    question for the general public

    To follow up on Chris's statement, maybe we could have a non-competitors membership rate. The classification could be upgraded at any time to allow them to race. Otherwise, for the play boater, they get access to the pond and get to learn the hobby without the competitive pressure.

    question for the general public

    I think developing a gas class and only allowing the canister muffler is one way to help. On a class specific level. You may buy the tunnel for 300, but then the starter, glow charger, expensive fuel and glow plugs along with a 12 volt battery and charger can add up. You also have the constant needle fiddling. From what I can see, gas is you, the boat and a radio along with a gallon of buy anywhere gasoline and a quart of oil. After run procedures are negligible and you aren't always fiddling with the needle. Aside from that, everything is big enough that you can work on it without it being fiddly. A fiberglass hull with a 3 channel fm radio and a stock zen would be less than $600 I believe. That also reminds me. You don't have to have the expensive basecoat/clearcoat paint. I may be way off base. I am still a fairly new boater and have a lot of those "oooohhhhh, I see" moments. IMO, anything that takes hassle out of the hobby is progress. A stock gas class would fit that bill as far as I can tell. Plus, it's relatively quiet.
