Mersey Mammoth / Lara 1 by Toby Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
A ha! I have just received from a friend a scan of a crumpled clipping from some magazine. It would seem it was taken at a boat show in Ellesmere Port. I have googled but although shown are models none show the crane. What year, i have no idea. According to the text the model was that belonging to the late Eric Bell and which had been loaned to the show by a Dave Morris. Now to find out who is this Dave Morris and whether he still has the model. Toby

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.

EarlyVosper M.T.B by Simplas by boaty Admiral   Posted: 4 months ago
Found on E Bay but sold in June of this year, a 42 inch kit of a Simplas Marine Construction Vosper M.T.B. It would appear that there are not many about now. I built one in 1972 and the kit contained a fibreglass hull with all fittings including the guns being in cast metal. Deck and superstructure were plywood and the boat was a model of an early Vosper as it had a very narrow beam and torpedo tubes were towards the stern. I fitted a DC Sabre 1.5cc diesel but had to add a lot of ballast which resulted in a sharp drop in performance. This was solved by replacing the Sabre with a Fuji 15 marine version glowplug engine . The boat was free running and as I was on an apprentice engineers pay and could not afford r.c.as I was having to support an ageing Mini. This was my transport from Ellesmere Port to the boating lake in New Brighton. If I had bought a Taycol Supermarine motor it would have solved all my problems as the battery would have been the ballast. Boaty 😁

Thanks for that nutrunner. All the information I need. Not mobile for a couple of weeks, but thanks for the invitation. Which are your 'Club Days' and do you have a 'closed season'? You are as close to me as my 'Home Club' and my driver could do with a change of scenery! Cheers. NPJ
