    Dynamite 15/18 Pipe & 20 Header

    While attempting to "reduce the rubble in my shop," I came across a Dynamite 15/18 pipe I probably used on a 20 Mod Tunnel and a 20 Rear Exhaust Header Pipe. I am asking $10 for either one and that basically covers the cost of shipping. Send me a PM if interested. JD

    Racing Model Boats When Mt. St. Helens Blew Up

    On Sunday morning, May 18 40 years ago , we were conducting a model boat race in Lakewood, Washington. A little after 8:30 we heard a loud boom from the south. A while later someone heard on the radio that Mt. St. Helens had erupted. Several model boaters from the Portland area were...

    Repurposing A Nitro Tunnel

    Although I'm retired and do have a considerable amount of "expendable time," this Stay Home-Stay Safe-The Park Where You Test Your Boats Is Closed" added even more "expendable time." So, like probably many other "IWers" I moved a project off the storage shelf and onto work table. About 7 or...

    Yesterday I managed to run over a large rock with our 2003 Audi A4 Convertible. The rock made a small crack in the transmission case where the oil plug is located. The foreign auto repair shop where I have had other work done, said it needs an entire new transmission. According to them, an...

    Your First 50 mph/or Faster Patch

    Well, since racing our model boats has been temporarily put on hold for many of us, I thought some reminiscing about a past model boating accomplishment might be appropriate. One of the things I still remember fondly was getting my 50 mph patch back in around 1974/75. The boat was a Dumas...

    JD Builds a Foam 1/10 Scale 8255

    Late spring of last year I build a 1/10 scale ML Boatworks 8255 wood kit, painted it white, and raced it 5 times in ERCU summer events. The BOAT runs fine, but I thought maybe I could build a "Better Mousetrap" from foam. Well, long story short, after 2 1/2 months of building, testing, and...

    Slammed Shaman

    Last Saturday NAMBA District 8 Director, Jim Mamaril, hooked his Shaman 40 Stock Tunnel right in front of Bill Mowatt's Shaman. As Jim's boat was rolling over, Bill's boat hit it. Jim's Shaman is probably a total. Bill's boat raced in the next heat. Jim was planning to enter his Shaman in...

    JD Builds a BOAT

    Four years ago I started racing 1/10 Scale Hydroplane with the Electric R/C Unlimited club out here in Washington. I began by racing the 1957 Hawaii Kai III belonging to another retired school teacher who loved the full size and model unlimiteds, but wasn't a racer. The Kai was built about...

    JD Tunnel Boat Plans

    Mark Scott now has many of the plans/drawings I've done over the years for tunnel boats. Well, at least he will have them in a couple of days. I greatly appreciate Mark's willingness to share the plans. It has been very rewarding to see model boats built from my plans. JD

    Any Old Model Boat Plans Collectors?

    In an attempt to reduce 53 of model boating "treasurers," I was going through a filing cabinet full of model boat plans. I have 2 sets of drawings/plans for the 1/4 Scale Crackerbox. One set was done by Bill Koster of SoCal and is probably the original drawings/plans for the 1/4 Scale...
