Fleet Base Gulf Waters 28 Oct 2018

Postby BsHvyCgn9 » 31 Oct 2018 17:22

G'day All,

We had our usual Sunday run at Bonython Park pond and it was looking good earlier in the week after they drained it and clean out all the muck....I stopped past on Wednesday and it look clear as glass. So I got the Sub ready for a run.....roll up Sunday and the pond is GREEN!! instead of brown algae we had green algae!! USS Shark stayed on the bench even the larger ships had trouble with the green goo and Scott shedded a rubber coupling on his Armidale due to prop bound up with goo... Good turnout of models with Justin bringing Iron Dampier along for a run and Nick had his giant Mega Yacht along for more Testing.

Loads of public drifted past to check out the models and Bruce Petrie took loads of pix which i have pilfered off his Model Boats Adelaide Facebook page (with permission)

Cheers Bruce B2 :nuke: :nuke: :nuke: :nuke: :nuke:

Yes it was a good day other than the algae in places. I sucked a huge amount in through Iron Dampiers bow thruster unit and it was wedged in like cotton wool. I had to take out the unit to clean it up. Like Bruce said there were alot of public around and had a good look at what we do. The bbq was great too. :tup:
