Father's illness. by Tenbury-Mike Apprentice   Posted: 5 hours ago
I am writing to inform any members who know my father, Colin Hubbard from Hereford, he had a stroke just before Xmas, and I understand he was in contact with another member from somewhere near Barrow in Furness regarding some models, but he won't be able to collect them as he isn't able to drive as he has lost the use of his right side at present and can't talk yet, but is improving. Please message me if you know about this. Thank you Mike Hubbard.

Steam Launch. "Sweet Sue " by sandkb Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 19 hours ago
I built this vessel from scratch using a pre made clinker fibreglass hull purchased from Mini Steam Australia. The engine is an oscillating twin cylinder and the boiler is a 3" Centre Flue Gas Fired Vertical Boiler from "Miniature Steam". The gas tank is a 1-1/2" vertical refillable GasTank also from Miniature Steam Pty. Australia. The vessel is radio controlled with the skipper appearing to control the rudder. It has a smoke generator and a rc controlled steam whistle.

Perkasa 49 inch by BOATSHED Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 21 hours ago
I used to take a rescue boat with me, A small electric boat with me and I had a piece of fishing lie about 15ft long with those small bouny balls that are about an inch in diamiter threaded along it and run it round the conked out boat. The line would go under the boat and catch round the prop or rudder the drag it back to shore. The fishing rod I take now is a telescopic one with a fixed spool reel and fly fishing line that's bright yellow and it floats. Hoping to cast over top of the boat then drag it back. I was getting quite good at it. Mainly on my brothers boat. Mine was quite reliable but did conk out sometimes.

Perkasa 49 inch by lesfac Lieutenant   Posted: 24 hours ago
Don't know how deep it is in the middle. I think there have been a couple of drownings over the years. I take a reel of fishing line with me. My plan would be to enlist some help and take the other end of the line to the other side of the lake. Lay the line over the boat. Tie a duster to the end of the line and gently pull the line over the boat. I am thinking the wet duster would grab the boat well enough to pull it in. I haven't had to try it so I just hope it works if I need to use it. I also thought about getting a 5 meter fishing pole off Ebay but didn't get around to it. But as I said most of the time the prevailing wind is towards the more accessible bits

Novice Build: Vintage Model Works 46" RAF Crash Tender by andyhynes Petty Officer   Posted: 1 day ago
I built mine a couple of years ago. The wood is good quality and the metal fittings dont take much cleaning up. My fireboat runs of a brushless motor running of lipos batteries and performs well. I used auto paints regards the finish. and very pleased with it. It performs a good as my 49" Perkasa which runs of two brushless motors with the lipos wired in series.
