Yesterday we got reports in from the West Coast Symposium. These type of events are a very important part of what the ACBS does. OK, OK, it’s also a great excuse to get together , have some laughs and talk about whats going on in the hobby. And for folks new to this, a fantastic way to find out that your not the only one that has no idea what there doing when it comes to Propeller design. But, thanks to John Flaherty who knows props, the mystery of prop design came into focus. And yes, we do see the irony that he is out of focus.
One of the best parts of going to these events are the pre events. Shhhhhhh, don’t tell anyone, getting a ride in a cool boat is worth the trip alone. Thanks to Ron for sending us in this short video. It’s in focus… just tall, not wide.. So imagine your watching this on a phone. And if you are watching this on a phone, imagine you are there shooting it. And if you are there filming it. TURN THE PHONE SIDEWAYS! All kidding aside, its fun to go for a ride anyway we can! So here is Miss Sydney, She is a redesigned, recreation, of a Ventnor gentlemans race boat. Four of these hulls were built in Australia by Paul Duhurst. All made it to America, and surface from time to time.
Thanks Ron for reporting in, and stay tuned for a story Texx and Brian Robinson have been working on for a while that was talked about at the Symposium
