South Manchester Model Boat Club by John Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 days ago
Hi Chris, Let me know when you're having an open day and I will try and get my club along to join you. Thanks.

South Manchester Model Boat Club by johnfastboat Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 days ago
Hi Chris, Many thanks for contacting me. You are right I will be joining a Club and yours does look to be the closest to where I am now living. Which brings me to the point of contacting you re membership. Perhaps you could contact me via this sight. Kind Regards John P Saterlay

South Manchester Model Boat Club by ChrisPSR Recruit   Posted: 4 days ago
We were established in 1980 as the Platt Fields Model Boat Club with two objectives: To promote the construction and sailing of model boats To organise, hold and attend model boat competitions In 1998 we decided to change the name of the Club to the South Manchester Model Boat Club so as to better reflect our location and the area of population we serve. The Club has the exclusive use of the Platt Fields Park boating lake and sails there every Sunday morning from 9.30 am until approx. 1.00 pm. Visitors are always welcome, but why not become a member. Sailing is permitted at other times on this water provided permission is first obtained from the Park Managers office, and a current Club membership card is produced. We have established a reputation for being a relaxed and friendly Club and currently our membership stands at 18. Although a small club, we have a very large a varied selection of models, with no specialisation or favour given to any particular branch of our hobby (scale, warship, sail, fun, fast electric, etc.) although there is a strong IOM., section and other racing interests. Our well equipped Club also has exclusive use of a large club room at the lakeside with kitchen facilities where we hold our club meetings on the first Sunday of each month at the end of the scheduled sailing period, along with IOM., race practise on most Tuesday afternoons.

Looking forward to it. Must get the prayer mat out to the gods of the sunshine and do as many hail Mary's as I can muster 😀

"Vanity" leaves the building board by Westquay Captain   Posted: 11 days ago
Ah, my replacement copies of Plank-on-Frame Models have arrived. Indistinguishable from the copies I lent and never got back. I simply cannot be without these books. I've had them since I was wee loddy in Devon, when my love of quality model boats began. I was a member of the Thames Ship Lovers and Ship Model Society and got my first ever proper commission through them. Where are they now? They were one of the main London based clubs at one point, meeting in a Pub in the West End on a Tuesday night. I believe the magazine Model Shipwright came about through those meetings. Now, even that magnificent organ has gone. What is it about model boaters? No TSLSMS, no Scale Sail, no Model Shipwright. And no doubt Maritime Models has gone in Greenwich and Model Shipwrights in Putney. For a maritime nation all this is a disgrace. Martin

Where do yachties go? by Westquay Captain   Posted: 18 days ago
Cor blimey, luv a duck and all that, Dave. That's one hell of a selection for one club! Which club is that? I can even see a plumb stemmer there. My location (I thought I'd done that) is the Fens...Cambs/Norfolk borders and no, there is no model boat club close to me that I would consider travelling to. I found a group (couldn't call it a club) who sail, but they are all Isle o Manners. Silly ugly blobs, so were their boats! I have nothing remotely in common with people who think nothing of bragging that they spent 750 quid on some drawing film sails in a triangular hardboard box which they slide into their Honda Jazzes at precisely 12-31pm every other Sunday and drive along a mile or more of rutted farm track away from their little farm reservoir, to bump down miles more single lane somewhere out the back of Wisbech in fear of their other halves who have clearly said, "Be here at 12-53 or your dinner's in the dog!"! Otherwise it's all tug fans and pocket battleshippers who love a good bobbing cork. Fussy ain't I? I could accept all that if they weren't so far away and so expensive. What you have to understand is that there is water everywhere round here which you could just turn up at and sail on, but nobody does, except me. I ain't paying to join a club with a lake the size of Windermere, 30 miles away, which would require a rescue boat to be safe, when you can sail on a static river (canalised) for free, up the road! No, I was more wondering where one can go on the 'net for info. I've had to resort to the superior 'Net skills of a Canadian friend to save what he (as a static boat modeller) judges to be useful shots from youtube videos and then send 'em over! BTW, Dave I will PM you my email address. Please do add me to your youtube channel or whatever the correct terminology is. I have tried through the "Nextdoor" system to find model boaters near her, but have had no take up whatever. John, Bury is just a wee bit too far away!. But thanks for the thought. Cheers, Martin

Where do yachties go? by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
Hi Martin We sail a variety of yachts at my club. As well as the class yachts we have Pond Yachts, Thames Barges, Norfolk Wherry, Pilot cutters, Fishing boats, RN Gunboats, Tall ships and have our own mould for a plank on frame 5' schooner. Most are scratch built and have been built from scaled up plans. We use Posterazor - http://posterazor.sourceforge.net/ to magnify to scale. You then print to several pages at your chosen size. I have attached a few pics of some of the models. If you send me a pm I will add you to my U-tube page where there is video of models sailing on the club waters. We also make our own fibreglass moulds and hulls as do many other club's members. Must admit we have not seen any footies but all models apart from IC and fast electric racing boats are welcome. You have no location shown on your profile so it's difficult to suggest where you might find like minded Yachties. Most clubs will have yacht members if the water is suitable so if you look in our Model Boat Club section you may find one near to your location. Dave
