Perkasa 49 inch by lesfac Lieutenant   Posted: 12 hours ago
Don't know how deep it is in the middle. I think there have been a couple of drownings over the years. I take a reel of fishing line with me. My plan would be to enlist some help and take the other end of the line to the other side of the lake. Lay the line over the boat. Tie a duster to the end of the line and gently pull the line over the boat. I am thinking the wet duster would grab the boat well enough to pull it in. I haven't had to try it so I just hope it works if I need to use it. I also thought about getting a 5 meter fishing pole off Ebay but didn't get around to it. But as I said most of the time the prevailing wind is towards the more accessible bits

Sweet❤️❤️❤️Heart by Grandpa Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 days ago
[Score: 8/10] 24"/1200g Sweet❤️❤️❤️Heart Capable of 12mph and a runtime of 30mins Single Propellor (2 Blade X Type) Geared to a Graupner (2 Blade X Type) Powered by NiMH (7.2v) Batteries - Comments: 18" of Ice covers the pond so much of the information requested must remain blank. The boat has only seen the bathtub ! No leaks. Stable and balanced. Paint is acrylic, clear-coated wood is mahogany. This is a Nor-Star Kingfisher kit with some alterations and added details. Looking forward to posting a video of the boat running on the lake in April after the ice leaves.

[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.

blowing the dust off the fireboat by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 14 days ago
hi dave im referring to the lake that is right next to the biating lake on the sane site. presumably its local ciuncik? paul

blowing the dust off the fireboat by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 14 days ago
Hi Paul There are lakes either side of Boundary Park. If you refer to the one over the other side of the A50 road, I believe it is privately owned and people have to pay an annual fee just to walk their dogs. Possibly also used by a fishing club. Going the other way, towards the motorway I understand this may be council owned but you are allowed to walk your dog. Either way you are unlikely to get permission as the local properties all fall in the £1M plus category and they are likely to object. Just a bit of background, the lakes were all created when the M6 was constructed with the sand dredged. They are all fed from ground water and are not fed from streams other than some overflow channels from adjacent lakes. Makes for nice clean water but subject to weed growth due to chemicals in the ground water table. You are very welcome to come with your boat, please send me an e-mail so I can be sure to be present Dave

Hi Paul You are welcome to come and sail at Boundary Park with Crewe MBC on a Sunday afternoon from 1pm or Wed if you have a day off. Boat going well but I agree you do need a much bigger lake. Good to see that you are re-kindling your interest in model boats. Dave

got it out of the box for the first time in two years! Boat was ok, after I remembered to use dual rates on the rudder, its been a while, but the batteries didn't do so well, you can hear the low voltage alarms going off and this was 1/2 throttle, need a bigger lake! v=0ZBC-0EqjuA

Getting old is taking your dream model to the lake side and leaving your transmitter at home 😭
