    Re: A better look for the waterbug

    First water test...
    Going to have change the steering some, backwards .
    But it floats and moves both good things.
    Still lots of work , and a bunch of stuff to do on the trailer too.

    From what I can see it looks to be sitting well in the water...Not overloaded in the rear...How did it feel other than not steering..

    Felt stable .
    It does seem t set a little deeper then I had hoped.
    I need to change the gearing a I nd et a little more prop speed.

    As soon as I get the trailer Finish I'll drop back in the water for another test.
    Looks like it may be an ICE test

    In between working on the waterbug, Working, Getting the yard ready for winter, and hunting.
    I had to expand my boat port. I had to raise the existing 16x24 roof a foot and a half and add
    another 24x22 roof.
    I'm as tall as the city will let me go , I will have to take the 'bug off the trailer and store it on the
    ground to get it in, Dang it.







    You can see why.



    That was hunting yesterday

    Nice !! You've been busy for sure...Amazing how something like another toy will create the need for a bigger roof...It's a snowball effect for sure..
