    Hi Cash,

    Thanks for the compliment on the model!

    It's like this when your pulling into port.
    You are going to tie up on the left side!
    He's on the right side!
    Call it a joke! Only a Nautical joke!β›΅πŸš€

    Oh, the Bollard is what you tie off to!

    I never flew model airplanes.
    But, It sound like fun!

    Cheers, Ed

    πŸ“ Lost Cleats!
    7 days ago by figtree7nts ( Commodore)
    Flag
    I had ordered some 5/8" cleat to use with the extra fenders.
    I intend on putting on Brooklyn.
    Problem is I tracked them and their last location was Puerto Rico.
    Don't ask I don't know why they are there!

    So, I called Dumas Models.
    Even they were baffled But, they said give till this coming Thursday.
    If it don't arrive call them back. And they will resend my order!
    On the house! Now that's what you call good business...… 😊

    Yesterday, I ordered an Extra Battery!
    See Brooklyn is now running on 12 volts.
    She will run for about 1.5 hours.
    On one charge!
    So, with a second Battery.
    she'll run an extra 1.5 hour.
    For a total of 3.0 hours! πŸ‘
