  Fran (KM1Z) and Jay(KK1J) getting setup The deck and solar panels at Wulfden Manor
  The operating position, note Fran having to hold down the Bencher paddles. The cold and old rubber feet, made the surface slippery. A mousepad solved the problem. The military surplus fiberglass tubes made excellent masts. They came from a camo net support package.
