Update on the rebuild of the UL-929 for 2008 from Jim Wilmot: Ah Progress! Attached photos show Vince (Xaudaro) painting the underside of the new 929 with help from Sara Morris. Tim and Jordan (Van Hollebeke) spent most of an evening sanding and have made countless part and materials runs. Vince has been working every night this week. The engine cover was getting final prep as are the tails. Hey, Karon and I sanded a whole bunch of deck hatches and the canard and tails too!

This picture from Mike Fetscher is looking down into the Evansville Riverfront/Pits. Usual stage is around 13-17 feet in the summer time. Right now the river is in the mid 40's So that puts the pits in about 30 foot of water.

Mike said the water is about 6 inches to a foot below the judges stand, so we could have a race and make the course a three mile oval!
