Bonython Park Adelaide

Postby scott154 » 17 Nov 2011 23:29

On this beautiful 34 degree day in Adelaide Chris Mckay and myself went for a sail in Bonython Pk with his amazing Japanese sub, Graham's HMAS Ovens and my Permit sub, Chris has been doing some work on Graham's Ovens two fine tune it, and I'm still setting up the Permit sub( takes a lot of time to set these buggers up!) It was great having Chris help me to get the permit going well, I still need dry dock with a few small problems, but I'm working them out. Bruce drop in for a look but then had to shot off to work! so Chris and I had a great morning sinking subs. here are some pics. Scott

she looks great mate - no photo etched vents on her yet?
Your surface trim looks great. I hope my trimming instructions made sense? What is she trimmed like dived?
Can take quite awhile to dial in about especially the first time.

Great to see that old Oberon underway too.

I now have subs I built running in every Australian state - nice to see two here together

-water is very green???

Thanks for the great day Scott, the photos are great. I had a ball sailing with another sub in the water with mine. We will soon have all the subs running as they should.
With 5 built and several more in planning we will have quite a good sub fleet.

Cheers Chris :wlr:
