SA Valour Class Frigate by Glyn Seaman   Posted: 2 days ago
Sad to say, I'm not actually a member of the Centurion Model Boat Club, despite having lived here for a number of years. But I'm sure the guys at the club would love having your model sailing there. Perhaps one day I'll have the time to venture to Emmarentia Dam to see the Spioenkop and all the other boats of the GMBC in action. Best regards, Glyn

Lost Tamar Class Model Lifeboat by ads90 Commander   Posted: 3 days ago
Dave W Many thanks for your suggestion and for doing it. It was found local to our home Club water and although we do not have a Facebook page / social media other than our Club website we often have enquiries from people who are in our region so to speak on various aspects of model boating but no enquiries about this significant part of the lifeboat.

From April to October, weather permitting, you will find members enjoying scale boat and sailing sessions from 18:00 until sunset generally on Tuesday,Thursday and Sunday evenings weather permitting., (Parking is easy in the adjacent car park and free after 18:00). 24 Hr Parking is free on both sides of the adjacent road "Inner Promenade" Come along and have a chat and maybe have a go yourself. Membership for 2017 remains at £10 per annum and includes insurance ! The yachting members sail mainly Dragon-force, RC Lasers and Victoria Yachts also hosting National events attracting large turn outs to the scenic location. More recently the club have use of the newly re-furbished park building positioned next to the lake complete with high quality kitchen and other facilities. The building is already used to support sailing open events and regular opening times are now a real possibility with the support of Fylde Borough Council. The active scale model section attends shows often by invitation across the North West supporting charity fund raising events for the Life Boat service and others.

Current loading of a Motor by CB90 Admiral   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi there, Sorry but Cumbria has no Canals, Lancashire has some 40 miles away. Cumbria has some lakes some covering 5 acres or more all with overhanging trees, poor access, exposed to high winds and rain, and a nice 4-7 mile walk to get to the other side. The Windermere club was about 40miles from me but has no water at present and has not had any for a number of years. I may be fussy, but if something goes wrong (which it often does) I need to get my boat back without too much trouble. It is surprising but even small public ponds/paddling pools have been closed by local councils in-case they get sued. So I travel a round trip of 80 miles to sail at Darlington Model Boat club, a great bunch of lads they have a 80m square pond with access all round, a rescue boat, a club house, toilet and kitchen. I also go to Norwich, Eaton Park when I visit my Dad a fantastic old Victorian walled pond about 30m by 120m. Some pics of Eton Park Thanks Roy

Gerry, following our meeting last Monday, I realise I don't have your phone number. Could you get in touch with me about running on the Well Creek. Did you mention it to your chums at Kingfishers on the Wednesday. Cheers, Martin

Winnipeg Model Boat Club by Ishmael Seaman   Posted: 10 days ago
That would be great, Donnieboy! We would love to meet you.

SLOTH by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 10 days ago
It's amazing that every club I've seen so far has problem with weeds.we use to have access to a reflecting pool with no weeds at a civic centre,But they changed the rules.Any water deeper than 2inches required a life guard be posted.When people in the condos saw us down at the water they would bring their children down to watch the boats in the water.At the end of the night they would thank us for entertaining their children.All our members enjoyed doing this.City politics is a b___h.

Seat Trials and mods. by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
Hi Michael. I know what you mean about distractions, I'm building an Amati 'ship in a bottle' model of the American warship 'Hannah' for my 5 year old granddaughter, also called Hannah. It's a real challenge on the eyes and fingers...seemed like a good idea at the time...🤓 If you want to see the Crash Tender close-up and have a chat I'll be showing it at the St. Albans model club exhibition in September, details are on the 'events' page. Rob.

gannet 30cc 2 cylinder 4 stroke by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
It is, but people come on these things sometimes to just get an idea what a thing is worth. He wouldn't get that from me! I just wanted a 30cc Gannett ever since I first saw one in a cruiser like that at Victoria Park, along with a Westbury Seal sidevalve four (made by Olive Cockman)and a Channel Island Special. It was always a great club. Alas, my lathe isn't big enough to make an engine. Martin

ESC info... by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 days ago
So, the programming is done with the TX.? Ah, right. I didn't understand a word of the instructions, though. I don't want want backuds or brakes. It's an outboard racer. Don't do backuds. And my other boats, even if they had a brushless wouldn't do backuds either. All speedboats. I don't have a club to go to, so no fiddly steering competitions. Guy I met last Monday about setting up a local group has already disappeared. How like model boaters. Martin
