Don't know if this will garner any interest but do any of the PDX Arima Rats (by the way PDX means Vancouver boys and everyone served by the PDX airport) want to get together on a "post winter" water trials of our boats?
Lots of work done over the winter, 3Wgt electrical and starboard, StreamFixer rebuild of his control, Keeler's engine, etc, etc. and most of us working on a bunch of little things and thinking about cobwebs we might have.
If there is an interest we could meet, say at Hawthorne (or any good ramp) and launch, do test runs and trailer our boats. Hooking up our boats (most of do it by our selves) and driving to the launch is a one person job. But dropping in the water, good test run, retrieval is best accomplished with two or three people. Most of are familiar with each others boats so it should make it easy.
Few tools, electrical equipment and opinions/talent/help could diagnose/repair/fix little problems that crop up. No limit on participants or discussion of a centralized meeting place.
Just a thought.
