Today Ed Shadle, Keith Zanghi, Dave Martinson, Lars Pedersen, Les Holm, Steve Rima, Omar Charamosta, John Martinson and Jason Mitchell.


Today Dave Martinson completed welding on our new water storage tank.  The previous one made of steel contained a lot of rust and plugged up lines running to the magnetic brakes.  The new tank should eliminate that problem. Lars Pedersen machined all of the components at his machine shop.  Prior to installation, the team hydrostatically tested the vessel.


Special guest today was another one of Ed’s hundreds of cousins.  John Martinson stopped by to help his brother Dave.

After pressure testing it was time to install.  Keith and Jason climbed into the Eagle and bolted up the tank and routed the hoses.  Steve Rima worked on the voltage regulator with Ed and installed some new electrical gauges in the cockpit.
