    90 and really humid here today. Thunderstorms we're on the way so we headed to the lake to take the boat out and cool off. How many places do you go down to the public landing and see the Amish out doing the same thing, parked next to a Harley





    After a dip we headed down the lake to a friend of mine who has a Navy rigid inflatable like the Navy Seals use. Dave is a 120+ combat mission F4 Vietnam pilot. He was one of 2 F4s that flew cover while A4s looked for John McCain when he went down. Dave took us for a short ride before the rain opened up









    That big Cummings sounds awesome and makes that 5000lb boat fly.
    We got soaked right after that loading the boat and missed getting crushed by a 80 tree on the drive home.

    Fun day

    Glenn, Big Cummings? What is the rest of the drive system like? How is the prop and rudder protected? It seems that if the seals used this boat there must be something to protect the drive system for use in some really rugged beaching situations.

    I saw that boat Saturday afternoon when I was on a seal and shark hunt. Didn't find any. Must have been the high tide covering the seal's sand bars?

    I found a bunch of seals in the water along the south shore but no sharks.
    Seals swimming is a good sign that there are no sharks.
    I flew over Muskeget Channel looking for baitfish and stripers- No Joy.

    East Beach looking toward Cape Pogue and Nantucket Sound.
    The Dyke Bridge is in the foreground to the left.
    With the new movie “Chappaquiddick” tourist are back asking directions to the bridge. Sadly a lot of the tourist ask for directions to the JFK bridge. History is a funny thing.

    I'll let Glenn comment, but most RIBS of this type are jet drives. I'd love to have one. Not sure what I'd do with it, but I still want one.

    I asked Dave if it was a jet drive and he said it was prop driven

    Yes! I will be there and hope to see some of you all there too. Forecast looks awesome. 8am - noon.

    I got treated to a Cub load of fun down at the Triple Tree fly-in (SC00). If you squint it looks like the North East..

    The orange ones were NEAT! Was that a factory Piper color? One of the orange ones said "Cub Cruiser" so I suppose that makes it a J-5. I am not sure about the other. I was in a yellow J-3, and the fourth was a Sport Cub. I also saw a champ where the belly was red instead of orange.

    Sadly not Dave, I was on my way back up to the NE but these two were based in the Carolina's. I've got a hankering for orange now... so much so that I've "reserved" another hanger at the airport (they are currently remodeling). Does anyone know the history on this color?

    Thanks!

    The beige was probably Cruiser on here and the magic cub would be mine

    Glenn & Cruiser -- gorgeous machines! Wish I could've found a second to talk to you all about them. I spent the rest of the weekend in the Cub a GBR.






    10 more T&L's... I feel as if I've upgraded from clubs to maybe oversized shoes as far as control goes... a step in the right direction. The heel brakes are buried under the front seat. When the instructor sits in it, it's dang near impossible to get a confident hold on them. I believe these were actually relocated inwards further than stock in an attempt to prevent students accidentally jabbing them. I changed shoes and feel somewhat better.

    The elevator feels incredibly heavy. When I am taxiing around with the stick buried in my chest I feel as if my arm is about to fall off.

    A) Is something up?
    B) Am I the weakest wimp in the North East.

    I'd be content with either, just want to know if this is what I'm "getting in to". I've picked up a second hanger at 1B1 in anticipation of getting some fabric in my life. I'd like toe brakes and a solo from the front seat. I'd also like an easier to operate trim system and an elevator that doesn't make me faint after a couple mins taxiing. I may start another thread as time goes on but wanted to quickly put it out here and see if any of you had input on a certain model Cub which may fit the criteria. I've been looking at a Champ too, but am not sure if thats a bad word around here

    PS the North East sure is something special this time of year....

    I have a nice sportcub you should look at.
    Toe brakes, trim that works plus solo from the front seat.

    Glen how long are you going to stay on floats? I'm going to finish up getting the ratings in the twin Bee and can take it out to play. I'm scheduled this coming weekend so the weekend after that.

    He's BUSY, however VT Glenn can play with you.

    From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be
    found in all corners of the earth."

    Then he made the earth round... and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

    LOL, coming to NY in the Sterman is about the same as flying the Bee to NH, slow boat to China. I should be buzzing around upstate NY with it. Loops are easy just get going fast and pull. I'm thinking of selling my StarDuster Two, just don't fly it enough and too cold when I'm down here from AK winters.
