The Pink Ribbon Permit

In early 2019, I was diagnosed with cancer of the appendix. Fortunately for me, I had exceptional doctors and we were able to address the cancer through surgery and I did not require chemotherapy. Almost exactly a year ago, they found another small cluster of cancer cells and those, too, were removed surgically. 

That said, I am intimately familiar with the effect that cancer can have on a person and their family. 

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Nautilus Drydocks has created a special RC submarine, fondly nicknamed "The Pink Ribbon Permit". 

It seems as though this boat was fated for this purpose, as it found it's way here already in her pink livery. The original intent was, perhaps, to create a modern twist on "Operation Petticoat", a movie from 1959. 

Now fully built, tested, trimmed and ready for her new owner, the Pink Ribbon Permit features a 1/72 scale fiberglass hull, 75mhz 6-channel radio system, D&E 3.5" diameter gas ballast WTC, and 12V SLA battery. It comes outfitted with loss of signal failsafe as well as automatic pitch control. 


We will be making this a special sale by offering the boat through silent auction. By submitting your generous bid, you not only get the opportunity to own a terrific RC submarine, but you will be supporting cancer research as well. 

To bid, fill out the form below. This is a silent auction, so you won't know who is the highest bidder until the auction finishes on Friday, October 28th. Bidder will be notified by email and/or phone. Bids are binding and the winner must pay within 5 business days or the boat will go to the next highest bidder. As you won't know who is highest, bid early and bid high!

To support the breast cancer initiative, we will be donating 30% of the final sale price of this boat to the American Cancer Society. 

Thank you for your generous support!
