Ellesmere Port Model Boat Club by NPJ Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 days ago
Hello there epmbcmember. I went to visit you site a couple of weeks ago to sus out the approach. A great pool and facilities. Met a very helpful lady who give me a look around and a membership form. I am a little limited in movement and your setup looks to be at the right height, approachable and no parking problems. I live in North Wales and will be sending the membership form in as soon as I can find my cheque Book! All the best. NPJ.

Sunset sailing by Gregg Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Our club recently held a sunset sailing session, its surprising how a cheap set of battery powered lights from a pound shop can add yet another world to r/c boat sailing, so why not have a go at your club too, great fun cheap to do and once finished, you can remove the lights ready for regular sailing.

Sir Kay (T241) by ads90 Commander   Posted: 10 days ago
[Score: 9/10] 39"/3400g Sir Kay (T241) Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 30mins Single Propellor (3 Blade 50mm) Geared to a MFA Geared 2.5:1 (3 Blade) Powered by NiMH (7.2v) 3Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Mtroniks (5Amps) ESC - Comments: This is my Sir Kay (T241) - Round Table Class Minesweeper. It is from the Caldercraft range and I was fortunate to recently acquire it - I would have much preferred to have built it but couldn't miss the opportunity of it being given to me by an old retiring modeller. It just needed new RC throughout, a good clean, a tidy up and some fresh paint here and there plus a bit of rigging renewal. Not tried it in the water yet but will do tomorrow at our Club meet. Tried it today and it sailed really well, stable and sits perfectly on the water and one 3000mA 7.2 NiMH battery lasted all afternoon - so pleased with it.

Me too Boatshed, since about 6 or 7 and I'm now 67! Keep on model boat building! Cheers, Doug 😎

I would willingly let other model boaters use it if I was lucky enough to get my dream fulfilled. I have been into model boats now since I was 9, 59 years and still enjoy it.

Keep us informed on the Lottery progress Boatshed, ... we'll be round like bees round the proverbial honeypot! 😊 I'll even bring my shovel. Cheers, Doug 😎

I do know there is a large pond in Norwich in Eaton Park and you can run any type of boat on that pond. If I ever win the lottery big time then I will buy somewhere in Norfolk with a couple of acres of land and have an enormous lake built so I can play boats when ever I want. Also have a small boat moored so when it runs out of fuel or for any other reason cuts out then I could recover it easily.

Yes, a great pity. I'm in Devon now so a bit too far away but I'm still hopeful someone may have some photos.😊

Kingsmere Model Boat Club by Ray Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 11 days ago
When ever I went to watch the competitions straight running,it never seemed noisy to me ,and the pond was not particularly near to housing,and the large properties around there seem to have large gardens and you can bet a few of them will be merrily motor mowing ,strimming or leaf blowing on a Sunday afternoon.Sadly now the pond is a shadow of what it was a the edges all over grown and it seems to have shrunk in size the last time I looked at it .

W"e've had all this before. Have any of you actually tested the so-called rules? have you told the little Hitlers to prove it? Use rivers, especially navigable ones. Look into the edicts that allowed the use of a pond for model boats in the first place, when electric didn't even exist. many ponds were built not only FOR model boats but BY model boaters. Accept nothing the little Hitlers say without absolute written proof, historically backed up. Do NOT pay a fine to someone who isn't a copper. I'm sure that cannot be right. Take the matter to the local press and TV stations. FIGHT the Bastards! Especiually when they're stupid enough to say it's the noise. Get or hire a decibel mater and measure what the mowers and strimmers knock out then measure your IC boats. Use the evidence to hang them by their own petards. Martin

It would be nice to see a list of both ponds and lakes across the country where all IC model boats are allowed to be run. I live just outside of Dartford and have about a 35 t0 40 mile run either side of where I live to be able to use my IC boats. I'm now retired and cannot afford to change all my boats to brushless motors. Sadly I'm not into slow running tugs and the like. I'm into MTB's and RAF Crash Tenders mainly or fast running speed boats.

Kingsmere Model Boat Club by Slowboat Seaman   Posted: 12 days ago
All very frustrating, has anyone compiled an exhaustive list of ponds where boats can be used?
