Hi All, I have noticed that recently there have been several new entries with text only, no pics 🤔 I understood that the Harbour is a showcase for finished models, or as good as, at least runners! Without pics it 'don't woik'! A picture tells a thousand words! What we are seeing now is more like "How is your boat set up?" There's a section for that as well, I think😉
Seems also that several entries actually belong in the Build Blog section cos they ain't finished yet, or some only just started!
Or have I misunderstood the purpose of the Harbour??
Cheers Doug 😎

You beat me to mentioning this, Doug
You are quite correct the Boat Harbour section of the Forum is for members to show their finished models as well as give details of the power set up etc. A picture is really needed to show off the model in all its glory.

If you are able to posts in the Build Blog section are very welcome and do produce encouraging and helpful responses from members, who also benefit from seeing how others tackle their builds.

There are other specific sections where members can post to share experiences or seek help for specific topics.

Some members use Tablets or Mobile devices to view and it could be Stephen may need to make it easier for these users to access the relevant sections and post pictures.

All posts are welcome but pictures do add greatly to the impact, and I suggest that any member who has a problem posting, sends Fireboat, Stephen a pm so he can address the issue.

happy building and posting
Dave

Thanks Dave, My post was triggered by the post about the Stinger -
"The Stinger - Comments: Affinity RG65 adorned with Wasp logo .."
Thought that sounds interesting, what's the logo look like?
Found it on the site and there was ..... NOTHING😭
Sadly not the first such instance.
Cheers Doug 😎

and here's another 'Harbour Post' in the wrong section and with no pics! 😲
"Rascal" by oscartrain_
"Graham Bantock "Ragtime" 1mtr yacht. found in a loft, needs finishing."

Gents: the 'Harbour' is for presenting complete boats / ships with pics and/or videos to show us what she looks like.
The place for new and 'in progress' projects is a Build Blog or one of the relevant Build related forums.
Cheers 'disappointed again' 🤔

Just to clarify where best to post your entries:
There are four major areas to the website:

Forum - Where any question can be asked and answered.

Photo Gallery - Post photos of your boats and comment on others.

Video Gallery - Upload video clips, show how your models ride on the water!

Build Blogs - Record your build progress and print out your own booklet at the end! Fantastic keep sake.

But also!
Harbour - Members are given their own harbour, where you can store the boats you have and record how they're their setup. Everyones harbour is published online so you can then compare various different setups and performances.

Model Boat Clubs - Are you part of a model boat club? Or do you sail at any of the model boat lakes? If so, add yourself as a sailor!

Events - Here you can keep track of what events are up and coming, or add new events!

Model Shop - A few companies list products here that help with boat building, why not check them out? It could be a good place to start if you're after a new project too!
