North Texas Shipwrights – 26 Jan 2020 – Towne Lake Park, McKinney, TX
Weather- Sky conditions- 1500 ft. Overcast/ Winds NW 3 – 4 kts/ Temp 16C/ Humid – 91%
Four Skippers braved the chilly, damp day to pilot their craft. The water conditions were relatively smooth with the exception of occasional wind ripples. The regatta went well with the exception of poor Cashrc….he had a superstructure failure on his new PT boat, and a motor failure on his Graupner (which was rescued – photo 9-10). However, his new mini- USCG 44MLB operated great! Bravo Zulu! I got my steam oscillator to run after sitting idle for a year, but did not put my steam launch in the water as my receiver battery was unreliable. I will be ready next time!
