St. Albans model show. by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 days ago
I’m pleased to report that the fireboat finally got it’s bottom wet at the St. Albans model exhibition last weekend. Sadly it was only in the very small temporary pond that the club set up for the ‘have a go’ boats during the ‘free sailing’ session at the end of the second day, nevertheless it was a good ‘tank test’ for the motor and systems. The boat gets up onto a plane immediately and crossed the water into the hands of a ‘catcher’ on the opposite corner in seconds and when held static under full throttle it’s quite a job to counter the thrust. She sits nicely on the waterline but needs a small amount of ballast to correct a very small list to port, and I also need to extend the rudder servo limits to reduce the turning circle a bit. It’s a shame that there was no one to hand to take some action pictures and video so I only have a few static shots that I took. The St. Albans model show was itself a phenomenal success with public attendances breaking all records over last year and was well supported by numerous other clubs and societies. The glorious weather on both days also helped too! If you attended the show I hope you had as much fun as I did 😁 It was also great to chat with other modellers who inspected my boat in the clubs display room at the show, many of whom have also made this model or have one under construction, it's was a pleasure meeting you all. Robbob.

Ships, Subs, Torpedoes and Hovercraft at my local RC show (4K resolution) by Dom of Essential RC Lieutenant   Posted: 22 days ago
One of my favourite RC shows of the year. The Southern Model Show has a bit of everything. The temporary boating pond is used by about 6 clubs who demonstrate their various watercraft to the appreciation of the visiting public.

Re Boat Harbour entries by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 22 days ago
Just to clarify where best to post your entries: There are four major areas to the website: Forum - Where any question can be asked and answered. Photo Gallery - Post photos of your boats and comment on others. Video Gallery - Upload video clips, show how your models ride on the water! Build Blogs - Record your build progress and print out your own booklet at the end! Fantastic keep sake. But also! Harbour - Members are given their own harbour, where you can store the boats you have and record how they're their setup. Everyones harbour is published online so you can then compare various different setups and performances. Model Boat Clubs - Are you part of a model boat club? Or do you sail at any of the model boat lakes? If so, add yourself as a sailor! Events - Here you can keep track of what events are up and coming, or add new events! Model Shop - A few companies list products here that help with boat building, why not check them out? It could be a good place to start if you're after a new project too! Dave

Unbekannte Flitze. A very flighty girl by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 23 days ago
Allen and Doug I see that you both do not sail with or belong to a model boat sailing club so are sailing mainly on your own. Most model boat clubs will have completed a risk assessment and produced guidance and club rules to protect both the members and public. If the waters are Council owned this can be quite a task and can result in permission being removed if not followed. Waters are not easily found and can be lost because of the actions of one individual. Whilst I can sympathise with the desire to recover a sinking/stopped or sunken model there are ways to do this safely. We have an RC rescue boat but I have also used long poles and fishing rods with lines. We also have waders to allow recovery from near the bank under trees etc as well as a boat and life jackets, if necessary, but not I suggest without having help on shore in case of difficulties. You are of course entitled to risk your own life but this is a hobby for me and I suspect many of our members and I prefer to avoid unnecessary life threatening risks. Dave

New Lake at Colwyn? by kinmel Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 25 days ago
Hi The water level is about 8 inches below the pavement, but whatever the level we have a battery operated, remote controlled boat hoist. Sit you model on the cradle and use the controls to swing it out and lower it down into the water. Scroll down our Facebook page to see it in action... style='background-color:yellow;'>modelboatclub?ref=hl

Unbekannte Flitze. A very flighty girl by AllenA Admiral   Posted: 29 days ago
Managed, at last, to get to the water on Monday at the Knap in Barry, South Wales with the Vale of Glamorgan Model Boat Club. Unbekannte Flitze was very fast off the mark, agile with incredible turns and generally good control. After about 5 or 6 minutes she became sluggish and I started to bring her in. About a yard out she just pointed her nose in the air and bubbled ignominiouly as she went to the bottom. Only one answer. off with everything but my pants and in we go. Rumour from Ken Thompson was that i was practising for the local Iron Man event. One poor lady actually believed it. The problem was a loose water cooling fault for p... poor preparation. Note to self... buy chest waders.

Largs Boat Club by rolfman2000 Admiral   Posted: 30 days ago
What a shame. It looks such a lovely location for a model boat club. There must be some cash somewhere in the system which could just repair the pond and waterproof it. If there is a "current" club, maybe they could approach a local business to help with finances as a sponsorship. Heres hoping for a positive future. Best wishes, Dave W 😊

A SPLASH IN THE WATER by Les-Forbes Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
I'm not a member of any model boat club yet, but I am about to join two that I have visited recently, where the member's have been very welcoming. They even said that if was sailing my boat and got into difficulty, they would wade out and rescue if the boat got stuck in any obstruction under the water. That got me thinking. If I was to sail my boat at any pond or small lake etc and I did get into difficulty and did not have a 'Rescue Boat' I would need to have some sort of protective clothes. These waders and wellingtons both come to less than twenty pounds. Is that a good buy.

Guestbook Post by Les-Forbes Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
It has and in many ways. I'm sailing for my little grandson who is only two. I have never sailed a model boat before, be it motor or yacht. But I'm determined to learn to pass on the him when is older. The articles you present are very informative and your club listings are excellent. I'm confident Ill continue to associate myself with your website and continue to learn.
