Maybe a dumb question but I gotta ask. Being fathers day weekend is this a kid friendly venue. If so who is taking them.

All of our events are kid friendly  ;)  They might learn a few new words or have a few questions for their parents before the end of the day  :-X

We'll have our 14yr old daughter with us.  :thumbup:

Yup.  I'll have my 2 year old boy out with us.

If anyone has kids that wanna make some $$$$ (lol...there's a decimal in there somewhere)...we might could use a babysitter.

My daughter might be willing to watch him for part of the day.  We'll see how it goes when we get there.

Sam, not sure who's going yet, besides us old folks. By the way they say we're in room 21.

MSD should be here early next week, then I need to get a bracket made up.
I'm gonna call on Madskills to see if he can bust one out for us then get it powder coated.  :thumbup:
Does anyone know if it makes any difference if aluminum is CNC'd or water jetted or ??
Can't wait to get some actual river time in.

danny, cnc and waterjet are just 2 different processes of cutting out the design. Cnc is what i do and waterjet is literally just that, a very high psi jet of water that cuts through the aluminum. So no it wouldnt make a difference the same aluminum is used in both.  :thumbup: :beer:

Thanks Daniel, if Nick is too busy is that something you could do for us ?
I'm making up a CAD drawing for the piece, that I could E-Mail or something.

I would need it before Big River, but no hurry. ha ha !!!  :P

Water jet just cuts the shape of the piece. With cnc milling you can get all fancy ball milling the piece thinner in spots and shit like that.

if you're near long beach....I've got a halfass shop, we can come with something.   I've got a nice bracket somewhere that mounts the box to the 3 holes on a bbc head...but I've got no idea where it is.

mine is taken care of.

i will be there without a boat. Dealing with the race boat, race gas, etc was a chore at the Avi and I didnt get as much video footage as I would have liked. So I am planning on 'working' this trip and getting as much footage for the video for this event.
