Biesbos 2019

Post by bobassel » Wed May 22, 2019 4:29 pm

Last weekend there was the yearly Biesbos Amphib meeting.
Unfortunately not with my own GPA, but like the GPA book says: "Friends for ever"
My GPA friend Wibo was willing to let me be his guest and hold the steering wheel the whole day lol
This year is was organised earlier, because a lot of us go to Normandy, so everybody had more time for preparations.
This satuday I / we were lucky with a wonderfull sunny weather.
Organiser Raymund van Riel managed to organise several nice trips in the beatifull Biesbos area.
I was lucky to meet my Amphib friends, and they are all helping me with material, tips and parts to make my
GPA 12350 float and drive soon lol

For the first time in history, we had with us two Weasels M29C in our group.
But : !!!, not normal Weasels , but water propellor driven one's rolley
With a special modification with the use of a Dodge transfer case, the weasels had a real water propellor, and
both sailed with a unexpected good result lol
