I never thought of that!  Think of the skirmish run we could do with that thing!

You'll have to change the name to GNF, Grand Navy of the Frontier?

I don't know about Naval campaigns in Nebraska ... but who remembers the amphibious action during the 2007 National Muster in Iowa?   ;D

(I gather they also had this at the 2006 Muster there, but I had to miss that one ...)

Yes ... it was fun!  All the shooting was done offhand from the deck on gongs along the far bank. 

The chap I was with there at the prow was an ex-Marine and joked that this was the first time he had ever done any shooting from a watercraft!

To my knowledge that stage idea was never repeated.

That Muster was unique!

Used to be a SASS annual match in Missouri that featured a similar stage. It was similar to a GAF stage, because it was "engage all the targets with whatever gun you wish". I expect Drydock has shot there too. I was shooting BP, with 2 1860s, a '66 carbine, and double barrel shotgun. When the pistols were empty, I commenced firing with the '66-until the carrier block jammed after about 4-5 rounds.  After that, I can assure you that a double barrel Stevens 311 gets REALLY hot with extensive BP shooting.

would it sail up Jerry's ditch?  If so how long to install drawbridge in lieu of current bridge??
