Hi, I am trying to contact somebody on Model Boat Mayhem with the name of roycv. We seem to share an interest in old motors and I would like to contact him, but I am banned from MBM!

Cheers,
Martin

Yep, they all started talking cobblers about copyright. I used to deal with that stuff when I worked in tech. publications, but they wouldn't listen. Then I got chucked off Model Boats because I took umbradge at the editor not knowing the difference twixt a barge and a narrow boat. That was just unforgivable.

Oh dear, and that's what happens if you can think for yourself and should dare to query any of 'the clique.'

Exactly! I've been thrown off all forums and best of all I got kicked out of the Brooklands Society by the President himself for criticizing their appalling website! Proud of that one.

Cheers,

Been doing some digging for the user roycv. There are no users on here with that name, but there are members that could possibly be the same person.....

Welcome aboard the Model Boats Website too! We're a smaller community than MBM or ModelBoats, but some great knowledgeable people on here 👍

Alas, he talks a lot about old motors, but doesn't use them as such. I want to use mine, at least to try them out before I give up and go all buggy motor. (I call all cylindrical Jap motors "Buggy motors"). It's easier than remembering all the fancy numbers. Buggy or drill motors. I have an electric screwdriver whose batteries are pretty much dead, so there's another motor to go with the minidrill motors I already have!
The way I see it is I used to use these old British motors years ago and they always worked, so why not now? I have them and I don't want them sitting on a shelf and I don't want to buy new Jap stuff or ESCs.
Failing that, the boats will go on the shelf as show queens and I'll go all wind powered. I have a Veron Veronica, a one-off Dorade GRP hull of considerable age and a vintage Marblehead once owned by Sir Thomas Lipton. Oh and a partly built hull of a Victorian "Plank-on-edge" gaff cutter on which I used to live.
Sounds like I need to sort my stuff out!

Thanks for all the help. If anyone needs any help with things like mahogany speedboats, deck fittings, etc. please pick my brains.

Cheers,
Martin
