Dave Morris is a member of the Ellesmere Port Model Boat Club and yes I think the model was at one of the shows there.

I have made contact with the captain and enjoyed a good conversation with him and had an invite to view the crane and take photos and see the engineers drawings.

My other hobby by boaty Admiral   Posted: 2 months ago
Good to see other PPLs and former PPLs on the Model Boats website. I took mine at Liverpool Airport known now as JLA (John Lennon Airport) in June 1984 and completed it in January 85. Trained with Liverpool Flying School aka Keenair in Cherokee 140s and a PA 38 Tomahawk. Later I moved into Air Nova which was also a Liverpool club and the actor Lewis Collins was also a member of that Club. At the time I was a member of Merseyside IVC (Inter Varsity Club) thus had plenty of passengers. One of them was Victoria Field, my former psychology lecturer who later became famous as a psychologist and writer. Eventually Air Nova moved to Hawarden Airport near Chester but the Club folded shortly after. I then joined the in house Club based at the field and I ceased flying in November 2016. Best flights were going over Snowdon VFR and down the Dee Valley. I also flew over Colwyn Bay to have a look at the boating lake though I haven't sailed there. I also saw the lakes at Llandudno West Shore and LLanfairfechan. The latter I am considering for sailing my fast electrics. Downside to PPL flying was the crosswind component of the aircraft being 17 knots , At Hawarden there is only one runway the 04/22 and Liverpool the 09/27. I did have to cancel many times due to this. Thankfully sailing model boats is much more enjoyable as we don't have that many snags to deal with and if the motor stops we don't have to do an emergency landing.😎😁😁 Boaty

Hello Ed, Thank you for your message. There are two posts to be removed. One as you correctly assumed is the one, " not sure if...." and the other is, "i was given this photo..." Thanks Toby

Hi Toby, I help around the website! Maybe I can help you! What post do you need Deleted? Is it the one where you say "Not sure if the previous photo works." I'll Delete it for you if you want! Cheers, Ed

Thanks Steve, The method of deleting/ modifying you cite is not showing on my mobile device. I will check later to see if i have on a pc; rarely use a pc so could be an improvement to website to make the options available for mobile too.

Clipping.

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
