As they say oop north in England. Ay up Baggie, tha's got some reet nice boating locations around you m'laddie. They look cracking places to sail yachts or motor boats to your hearts content. We have to fight for any piece of water round here with the anglers, golf courses, and private lakes. I'm getting very envious 😊 Best wishes, Dave W
Hi Baggie, Re: "The boating lakes are at Aldeburgh in Suffolk... right by the beach ... good wind👍 there and a lovely town too. The one with the Tug and the yacht is Cromer small boating pond ... lovely park and cafe there. Overlooking the sea. Again good wind. " and "Mine is as purchased . Bought the rope, figures, barrels and fog from Revingham Models. 👍" Ta for the info. You don't need to use PM for such things as there is nothing personal in it and I'm sure many others would also be interested and find it useful. Cheers Doug 😎 By the way: Where is the dog hiding???
Neat 👍 Sailing site looks very comfortable 😊 Where is it? I also have a 'Southampton' (original 40Mhz verson) which I am slowly updating and upgrading; lights, smoke and whathaveyou. Been looking for suitable size crew as well, where did you find yours? Cheers Doug 😎
Having once been the Editor of the Classic Motor Boat Association, yes, I have been at 30 knots. In my own Albatross. And faster than that in a Delta. It is like sliding down the stairs with your knees under your chin and your backside hitting every step. I've done that too. You keep talking about MTBs. I'm talking purely about the Crash Tenders. 30 mph is not that quick! MTBs were quicker. They were longer and much more highly powered. Probably why the Crash Tenders were only 2 in number and never saw real service, but they are so pretty! Martin
That only really applies where the vessel is intended for restricted waters or is over a certain beam. My Albatross speedboat was right hand drive. You don't tend to worry about navigation when you have a couple of skiers on the back! And the most restricted of all navigators stand in the middle of their narrow boat. Martin
