My wife finally got through to the Park Department in Pasadena. No motorboats be it gas or electric powered can run on the Burke Crenshaw Park pond.

Looks like I'm stuck with the retention ponds

Let me know when you want to meet up sometime. I have a arsenal of boats..Fast Electric and Nitro. That was me that used to run the boats at Crenshaw and Preston and behind the post office. Still have them and its been a while. That said with my fishing season starting , i might be stressed for time..

A little FYI for you guys who utilize the ponds for RC boating.
I went round and round with PPD back in 09 as they kept showing up to the ponds behind the post office because some jerk over in the trailer park thought he owned the place and kept calling the law on people for using it .
The PPD came out and asked me to leave two times . The first time they simply told me i wasn't supposed to be out there yada yada yada. Its not safe...yada yada..we've had stabbings and rapes yada yada yada...Its for your own safety you know ?Pffff..
Anyway, i told them i could take care of myself just fine and i didn't need their protection and then they insisted i leave and that charges would be pressed if i came back...HA ! So needless to say i was back a few days later running my RC boats when the trailer park maintenance man came walking 300 yards down to where i was at to tell me i wasn't supposed to be there.
I told him ( you mean you walked ALL the way down here to tell me that ?) He got cocky and said it was private property yada yada yada and i just laughed and told him to mind his own business and that i wasn't going anywhere.....20 minutes goes by and here comes the goon squad telling me i had to leave again or charges would be filed AND that the man said i had threatened him. I told the cops i knew for a fact is was county property and that they didnt have any jurisdiction to come out here telling people to get off the property when its public land . Of course that wasnt going to well and a couple more cop cars show up and i leave.
Next day i contacted the HCFCD and spoke to the Senior property manager and he couldnt believe what he was hearing.

#1 No motorized vehicles DOES NOT mean rc boats. The law is in reference to Automobiles, Dirt bikes, 4 wheelers etc...Manned motorized vehicles...not RC toys. He made this very clear as i explained to him the RC boats ran on nitro.
#2 The land is there for your use.
#3 The PPD has no jurisdiction over these bodies of water. They will tell you whatever to get you to comply but they are simply being dishonest if they ask you to leave and tell you you're not supposed to be on the property.

Anyway, long story short i got the officers names who were harassing and threatening to violate my civil liberties at the pond and contacted their sergeant who to no surprise continued the lie on the phone in their defense that the property was private and nobody was supposed to be back there so i asked for a meeting with him and the young gestapo who kept up with the harassment so they set up a meeting with me.
I went in, argued with them for about 15 minutes about the ponds scattered across Pasadena and i let them continue to feel like they had the upper hand and keep up with the lies upon lies and then i laid whats in the picture down in front of them. ...the look on their faces was PRICELESS !
I stood up and told little gestapo and his lying *** gatekeeper if they ever come out there violating my civil liberties again i would file a lawsuit against the PD. I mailed a copy of the letter to the chief as well. Haven't been bothered sense !
Moral of the story, if any of you guys get harassed...you now know the truth about the ponds...they are yours !

Crash and sunk on the Pond

We were running our two Impulse 31's and miss judged the distance between them one t-boned the other. The boat impacted had it's top deck separated and the side smashed. The boat that hit the other has a hole in the front on the keel. The one with the hole we ran back to shore but the other sank with just the tip of the bow showing. We tried to rescue on but could get our rescue boat to stay hooked to it. We had to go across the street to academy to get a blow up boat and get it.

I took the to Mercedes and he's going to fix them and paint one red and one yellow.
