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

Live long and prosper

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 😎
