Last Sunday our group held a Goofy boat competition. I entered my shark and we showed our boats on a table. All was good so it was to the water for the float off.
Jaws was bombing around with the others having a good time as we awaited the judge coming to the water. One of the lateral fins hit the pontoon and was dislodged causing a major leak. I recovered the shark and emptied it, gave it a quick test then put it back in as the judge arrived. Jaws shot off then stopped. Unpowered and filling up it was nudged by another vessel which knocked the dorsal fin off. The good news the dorsal fin floats and looked quite good on the water, the bad news was shark was filling up rather quickly. I borrowed a rowing boat and got back to the scene as the shark was rescued by some other vessels and pulled onto the jetty. The inside was totally awash and I was lucky it didn't go down.
I dried all the electrics and am pleased to say the only things destroyed were a servo and my pride.
The fin has been replaced and lots of glue has been used inside and out to avoid the same happening again.
