    I totally agree Nerys,
    I too have spent many years on ships and boats and now find it strange not being on them.
    I have had some great times and some really frightening times.
    So model making is the next best thing, and to be able to chat to other modellers on this site just brightens up my days.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Real boats dominated my life for many years, but now that I'm not fit enough to still sail, models are an excellent substitute. However, it is nice to come on here talk about more or less anything but knowing you are talking to people with that underlying love of boats.

    Cheers,
    Nerys

    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    Too right Red, thought for a moment there it was going to be a case of "left right, left right, mind yer fingers" CLANG, or painting the rocks white on the base drive for a month with no pay!πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ We want to know about the boats but also nice to know a bit about the builders life and situation, (as you might with anyone you meet with the same interests) I joined this site in 2011 (Think it had a different name back then?) and have picked up some handy info from peoples conversations/tips etc over the years. People always seem to have been helpful on this site.

    Irrelevant Kiwi - off the subject - consider yourself reprimanded ......... I don't think so .......We all need a bit of humour
    I agree with Martin - all conversations tend to wander off the subject - but we get there in the end and there is always a good response when you need help......and one does pick up useful information along the way

    Hi Guys,
    I can see both sides of this discussion, and as someone who is unable to get to a lake/pond I find the site to be very informative and extremely helpful.
    I make my models knowing full well that I will never see them on the water and in action, but looking at other members models and how they were made keeps me motivated with this hobby.
    And as for the banter with other members it just makes my day that little bit better.
    I know that starting a thread will drift onto something different but then every day conversation do exactly the same.
    The trick is trying to get it back on track!
    I am glad that the members here have a good sense of humour but when it comes to questions and answers and help then I know that the members here won't mess about and they help.
    Anyway I am starting to drone on so I will stop now.

    Martin555.

    A couple of people,? sort of proves my point, people have other things in life they have to do apart from models at times, so feel free to put something up and those who are awake can make some comments, suggestions etc. Besides, the site is world wide and time differences affect commenting as well, (eg I'm 12 hrs ahead of you and if I want to contribute in real time, I have to stay up half the night ! ie it's now 4.26 AM)
    Lots of us support the site, and I for one don't mind a bit how things are going, enjoy it immensely. I certainly have no trouble finding relevant info amongst the conversations. The site would be pretty bleak without all the 'chit chat'.
    I'm off to bed,- morning all.
