Excelsior by Gascoigne Lieutenant   Posted: 2 days ago
Excelsior has a very active life giving youngsters a taste of the sea with the Trust and does get about around Britain even taking part in the odd Tall Ships events. Been aboard with my camera at her home base in Lowestoft but but not sailed on her yet.

Recovery Boat by pjarrett Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
[Score: 8/10] 30"/2400g Recovery Boat Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 15mins Twin Propellors (2 Blade S Type 30mm) Direct Drive to a 500 type (Twin engines) (2 Blade S Type) Powered by Lead Acid (12v) 7Amp/h Batteries - Comments: Credit for the design of this craft must go to Mote Park Club member 18 (Dave). I have not had the pleasure of meeting Dave yet but hope to in the near future. I looked at his Youtube entry and decided to build something very similar. Being a lone sailor most of the time, I thought it sensible to have some form of recovery craft. The craft was built in June 2017 and so far I have used it twice to recover other sailors craft! Worthwhile project and gives peace of mind when out on the lakes. Many thanks Dave! I added the camera so I could take some photos of my SeaSpray from a different perspective, I will upload photos as they become available.

Thames sailing barge Capricorn by tomarack Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
I tried attaching to the roof of the cabin MD80 camera with a clip. In practice, the camera was unreliable. That's why I bought a small and reliable sports camera that I placed in front of mizzenmast.The camera has a scanning angle of 120 °.Looks OK. (Tested) The camera can be easily attached by sliding it to the mount (wooden cube)on the roof of the aft cabin.

Bournville Evening Event. by rolfman2000 Admiral   Posted: 4 months ago
It has been confirmed as the 30th September only today. I am sure a few of us are planning to attend the event, and some are even preparing illuminated boats for the event. I think I will just be taking my camera along for the evening. Maybe see some of you there. Best wishes to all, Dave W 😊

First Run by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago

First Run by canabus Admiral   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Guys Well today is the day. CG of the boat at 410mm from the bow and it sits in the water on the waterline. Cruised of at a slow pace with camera man taking pics. Up to 1/3 throttle and up on the plane, nice smooth turns with the rudder. Water flying all over the place!! Up to 1/2 throttle and sitting up nice on the plane. The boat handling as smooth as butter, the spray of water from the boat is about the same as one with spray rails. Pop up to full throttle and well pass scale speed, but by this time the camera man was not keeping up to the job. Totally happy with the boat, but still requires a few bits to finish the job. Enjoy the pics and happy boating. Canabus

Lindow common. by philpjuk Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
I visited Papplewick pumping station and found the day I had chosen was a "steam punk" day.They were sailing on the "lake" and had some really fine sailing boats, some live steam and some really fine "Jules Vern" boats and subs.I took lots of pics but found after I got home that the camera had corrupted the pics after I had shot a pic of a "Henry" vac that was cruising the lake,(it was not a real one just about half scale) The had stalls selling "steam punk" stuff but one stall had tools,and some nice boilers and steam motors.

Hmmm! Not an awful lot to see at that speed with only 240p 🤔 get an HD camera, or try a decent smartphone 😉
