    It's mostly complete....mostly. He got the tanks cleaned out and motors fired up smartly. Found the hose connection to circulate water. Thing has more redundant systems than the moon lander. That's where TMs would come in handy. I'm learning about boats in the Arizona sun on this thing.

    Redundant is Good. Don't know for sure, but it's a USN thing I believe:

    - No pull-overs on the open water where you can "stop" and try and figure out a problem

    - Especially during combat, when what you need is a quick fix NOW

    The old PT-Boats of WWII were full of redundancies (likely for that reason).

    Yeah. We are trying to make sense of what we are seeing and following the pipes and wires and valves and guessing using comparative anatomy techniques.
    The systems all have a few places that you can bypass/isolate/cross feed/parallel for combat survivability purposes.
    Having the TMs would be a big help with this stuff...

    Default Time to go water sking

    Hi All

    You may have seen this but this is my idea of combining restoring Military Vehicles, fast boats, big diesels, taking a few friends out for a cruise and if you want taking the kids water sking you could do it all at the same time. Wonder how much fuel those engines are burning at full song?



    There is an older thread on this forum about the sound of PT boats, nothing like these though.

    Cheers Phil

    Hi

    Didn't you start the thread on PT engine sound https://www.steelsoldiers.com/showth...-Full-Throttle

    Can you imagine cranking up a couple of boats like these and taking them down the Potomac River?

    Cheers Phil

    You're right. I did.

    I was thinking of a new thread, call it "MV Music" and just post all the good noises!!

    Might get to that someday....unless you beat me to it!
