Coming to Ireland in May by Grandpa Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 day ago
Are there boat clubs in Ireland? If so where? Coming from Canada 🇨🇦 and would like to meet some fellow builders. Is there a good hobby store in Dublin or Belfast?

Invictus build by Jim Petty Officer   Posted: 3 days ago
Been a while since i last posted, not had much time over the winter. I will need to find a boat club later in the year to try the boat out.

Edward . M. Cotter by GARTH Lieutenant   Posted: 3 days ago
[Score: 8/10] 39" Edward . M. Cotter Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 60mins Single Propellor (4 Blade 70mm) Direct Drive to a Johnson (4 Blade) Powered by NiMH (7.2v) 4Amp/h Batteries - Comments: The real fire boat is stationed in Buffalo New York . This fire boat visits Port Colborne on Lake Erie every year for Canal Days & because the model boat club I'm in sets up a display at the museum in town I decided to build a scratch build of this boat I used the prints of the Sequin Midwest tug for the hull & Internet photos for details. I used the tops of Lepages glue bottle to simulate the Monitor on the decks I'm real proud of them.

Kennemer Modelboot Club by andycoburn Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 23 days ago
For years we sail model boats in Spaarnwoude. The club is regularly engaged in the organization of competitions, international or nationally. The high speeds are achieved with these boats make the hobby spectacular. Different cc engines reach speeds of 60 to 100 km / h. The most popular classes are 3.5cc, 7.5cc, 15cc and 27cc.

Brentwood Model Boat Club by andycoburn Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 24 days ago
The Brentwood Model Yacht & Powerboat Club was founded on the 1st July 1988, with the main interest being model yachts. In July 2013, on our 25th Anniversary, the club changed its name to the Brentwood Model Boat Club. The new name was brought in to reflect that the clubs diverse association with all types & forms of model boating & not just confined to the yachting & power boat racing. At the end of 2014, the club was split into two separate clubs. This was primarily to allow flexibility to each new club to run things independently, as they see fit, to suit our vastly different lake environments. Both clubs have retained a common name & association with each other, but are now known as Brentwood Model Boat Club (for old Scale Section) & Brentwood Model Yacht & Power Boat Club (for old Power & Yacht Sections).

Rediscovering my old hobby. by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 25 days ago
Rewind…. When I first started my build blog I described my visit to the London Model Engineer exhibition in January 2016 and that my enthusiasm for model making was re-kindled. It was as a result of seeing a crash tender model on the Blackheath MPBC stand and getting into conversation with the owner of the boat. He went on to inform me that kits were still being made for them and he gave me the names of a couple of companies to look at. His valuable information led to some further research on the subject and finding various sites including this one which I immediately registered with, and I subsequently bought a Vintage Model Works 46" RAF crash tender kit and embarked on my rediscovered hobby. Fast forward…. I attended the same exhibition this January and was delighted to see the same chap on his club stand and I took the opportunity to remind him of our previous meeting and discussion and to thank him for his advice and recommendations. He looked at some of the photographs of my boat that I had on my camera and he was very complimentary on my building efforts. That chap is Phil Abbott, otherwise known to his friends as Steamboat Phil, and I would like to give him the credit for re-igniting my model making interest. Thanks Phil, I hope you are following and enjoying my build blog. Robbob

New Lake at Colwyn? by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 29 days ago
glad to see that big lake will be back in use, I'm not that old, and remember the paddle boats there, then it all fell into disrepair. I take it the dinosaurs have moved out of the new club house! I take it general parking is either infront of the old bike rental building (from the prom) or up at the swimming pool at the top of the hill? Will this years mayors regatta be there? maybe I can bring my avatar picture some time!😊

PS. Waverley by CraigRobotham Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
Great to see a model of this Old girl , I got to spend a day on the real one as an organised trip with our boating club . Was well worth the time and money , absolutely fantastic seeing all the inner steam workings . Very well done

New Lake at Colwyn? by kinmel Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
Access is good, club members can park at the lakeside , others must use the public car park about 75 metres away. The lake is open to everyone 7 days a week. Unless you have access to the clubhouse, you will need a second boat to rescue your model if it breaks down. Members have use of the clubhouse which has toilets and a kitchen, public use the leisure centre about 200 metres away. We meet every Sunday morning in winter

Thames Sailing Barge by frankburgess Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Good Morning Gents, .......and now for something completely different........ I enclose a picture of my model Thames Sailing Barge. Model Barges are very popular at clubs in the Essex and Kent area, because of the many historic barges in Maldon and the surrounding rivers. The members of Maldon Blackwater Model Boat Club have built several barges, but there are many other barge owning clubs in the Essex and Kent area who meet to run interclub Barge Matches. Most Model barges are built 40"-45" in length either 'stem head' or 'bowsprit' and usually they are fitted with a fin keel and a deep rudder, to give improved sailing abilities. Many are highly detailed models of specific barges; however the yellow barge is a 'generic' model with a 'Sirdar' hull built from balsa reinforced with grp. The model in build is based on a 'Veronica' grp hull and will be a bowsprit barge. These are the names of 'racing' barges, sadly broken up many years ago. I hope you find our particular passion interesting. Best Regards Frank Burgess

nordkap trawler by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Colin Welcome to the forum. Are you a complete novice regarding RC? We will be able to help but it is useful if we know what level of detail you require. There is a section on this site All things RC which will help with the basics. I see you are located in Queensland, Australia so if any of your country men are reading they may be able to offer local help. If you have a local club that could be a starting point. Radio gear is used in all the modelling types so it doesn't need to be a model boat club. I am attaching a picture of a friends Norcap so when you respond to this post I can get some detail pics of the details you require Dave 😀

Creepy by chumbucket Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
This is Creepy,a springer tug that is 5 yrs old now.He pushes #1200lb pumpkins for the pumpkin regatta along with saving many of the PMPBA club members boats from certain sinking or floating away.I never go to any of the club floats without him.He runs a Harbor freight 550 motor running a Target Hobby 320amp ESC,on a 5000mah 2s lipo battery.The plans can be downloaded free off the internet and takes about a week to build for the experienced builder,Great for the new boat builders to do because its an easy build tug.Simple door skins,some balsa,1/2a running gear from Dumas,1.5 brass prop,2x2 rudder from aluminum,cheap 2channel radio,ESC from Target Hobby.

San Pedro Push Boat by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I haven't had the best of luck finding a local Model boat club, So once or twice during the summer I try to get to the local pond. This coming summer I plan on going again to put my San Pedro Push Boat in the water hopefully having a Maiden Voyage.

San Pedro Push Boat by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I hope your better half feels better soon! and it's good to keep busy. I've never had ice breaking duties but, when I was a member at a club in new York city, I did a lot of boat recue work with my tug back then 35yrs ago. For now I just build my boats and display them, see the closest model boat club to me is about 38 miles from me. I have a pond about 1 mile from me but no way to transport my boats. so their dry docked on a permanent bassist...
