Re: Oshkosh 2019 writeup

Nice write up and nice to see you share these trips with your daughter. Also it was nice to meet you both at the otter and I am also trying to figure out why I did not have left over prime rib

Re: Black Otter 2019!

Had a great time at the Otter last night and the prime rib was excellent as always even thou they had to knock me down to the queen cut again because of demand. Seen a lot of old friends and made some new ones as well. Thanks to all for a wonderfull night and see you next year. Steve Sr

Re: Black Otter 2018!

If needed I can drive to Oshkosh to pick up 4-5 people and would enjoy the company. So if you are on the fence because you don't have a ride just let me know.

Re: Otter 2016

Me and my son will both be there this year for sure. If needed we can both drive down to Oshkosh and pick people up. I can take 5-6 in our van and 4 in a second car. Let me know if anyone needs us to pick them up and rest assured you would not be putting us out. And whoever is contacting the Black O...

Were just finishing up kit #3 and thought we can start doing some of the glass work while waiting for the finale kit to arrive. Will most likely contact you if we have problems but will ...

WEST SYSTEM EPOXY KITS

Just wanted to let others know that I just purchased these products from my local Boat store today. The prices were the same as spruce but there was no shipping charges. Spruce wanted like $60 just for shipping.
Happy Building to all.

Yes I watched that and it was really good. We have come a long way since than. I liked the holding and firing of machine guns from the pilot seat trying not to hit the prop or wings.

The bottom of the wing tip wou...
