Notes about the Model: The GALE V was designed by Les Ruyggles in 1980s as a 1/8 gas model.In 2013, Brian Buaas hellped me make the plug and mold for the GALE size 1/10 boat.
Notes about the Real Boat: The real GALE was one of many GALE boats. The GALE ran out of Detroit and in the early days of RCU Battle Ground was also a long ways from Seattle.
Notes about 2015: Finally got some of the bugs out of the hull so it is running well.
