Looks IFFY, but the best hope compared to the junk weather we have seen lately.

I've emailed Bernie to see if he has an L265. If so, I'll pick it up on the way south. Otherwise I'll launch with a K.

I'll keep an eye on the weather and make a final decision Thursday.

Weather is looking very promising.

I've got new rigging so I'll be there very early to insure I get everything setup for an early launch.

Bernie did not have a motor for me, so it will be a AT K270. ~9k.
