Willkommen an Bord Chyer, How do you get permission to use public swimming pools? Or is that in your own backyard? 😉 Cheers Doug, Merry Christmas😎 Wie bekommst du die Genehmigung öffentlichen Schwimmbäder zu nutzen? Oder, ist dass im eigenen Hinterhof? 😉 Grüß Doug, Frohe Weihnachten 😎,

A superb looking boat, If you sailed it in Liverpool would it be a Wherry across the Mersey?😊

Ellesmere Port model boat lake by georgeo5664 Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Paul yeah all good will post a picture of the fire boat it’s done 😁 yeah the pool is temporary we have took it down now but it will be back up in March I think. The pool is going to be bigger next year. Hooton is a great venue to be honest. Have a look at the photo it was taken at the beginning of the year mate.

Hi George, nice to hear from you, dare I ask you have the Fireboat any further on yet!😁 Nice site at Hooton Hangers, but my understanding from epm's post is it was a temporary pool and not there now? I was hoping they had a lake, it would have been a spectacular site. I recall that there was some sailing years ago in raddle wharf on the other side of the museum, over by the hotel. Nice venue again, but very very deep and launching was a problem. Shame to see a club struggling for a venue

Ellesmere Port model boat lake by epmbcmember Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
To answer NJP's question we can get a car within 30 feet of the temporary pond, less if you drive on the grass, the pool is about 12" deep. The pool has now been taken down for the winter but we have been asked to put a larger one up next year. There are toilets there although not 5 star, but these will be refurbished when there is cash available. The site is the Hooton Park Trust next to the old airfield. At the moment they are refurbishing the last hanger with a new Belfast truss roof. They do have a website and they are on facebook. You can also read about it if you type in RAF Hooton Park Airfield, which was opened in 1917 and closed in the 1950's I think. At one stage it was Liverpool Airport before Speke was opened.

Pool try outs by GARTH Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Nov.13 2017 Spencers pool is being drained for winter skate rink so rushed Sea Commander for a pool try out & shake down . still needs windows & some deck accessories . One of the members suggested to get some tint from a shop that tints car windows & got some tint film for free thanks for that idea . Hope the winter flies by so summer sailing can start again .

TSS Manxman by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Brings back memories of past voyages on the real ship from Liverpool to Douglas. Sails well and nice detail

Underwater obstructions (dumped rubbish) by boaty Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
😁You certainly got it right Onetenor. Water does appear an attraction to persons who want to dump rubbish . I came across this once when sailing on a lake in a Liverpool park. My boat appeared to stall then suddenly regained forward motion but a little bit slower. When I brought it in, the prop was badly chewed up and there were scrape marks along the bottom of the hull. Guess it made contact with some submerged object that should have not been there. Hopefully technology would provide us with an answer one day; miniature sonar at an affordable price. Boaty

Blackpool Model Show by ilewis Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 months ago
Not sure which post had unhappy comments on, but hopefully it was from before I started organising the show. In any case, I am always open to suggestions (polite ones at least!) so if there is something that was not as you would perhaps have liked it to be just let me know.
