Well, we had a great meeting in October, good weather, good turnout, and some great topics. Dirk has obviously been working hard on his "Kyle Rea", the detail is really beginning to shine and we're fully expecting to see daily polishing of the ship's bell. The wheelhouse already has charts on display. What a model! But ........... Dirk thinks it's going to need close to 30 lbs of ballast to bring it to the correct waterline. Any volunteers to help launch and recover it?
