Colwyn Bay MBC - 2017 Regatta is cancelled by chippy Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 12 days ago
I'm so sorry to read that. I was looking forward to driving over for a really good day out. I hope you manage to get all the permits sorted out for next year.

Colwyn Bay MBC - 2017 Regatta is cancelled by boaty Lieutenant   Posted: 13 days ago
That's bad news. Previous events had been really great. I hope those responsible for the lake and related activities change their minds and get the event reinstated.😤

Anchor Chain by cormorant Admiral   Posted: 6 months ago
Hi Ed. I was thinking of painting it, but how to do it with such small links? My first thought was thinned down acrylic and dipping it several times to try and get and even coat. What do you think? Steve PS. How is the tug and did you decide to build the Pilot Boat in the end? This is mine at a recent evening regatta

New Lake at Colwyn? by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
Shame about this years regatta, but what an opening year 2018 will be, if you can give early warning on the date i will be there, good luck with the rest of the renovations, you are making fantastic progress Mark

New Lake at Colwyn? by kinmel Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 6 months ago
The dinosaurs went a good few years ago and we have just scrapped the remaining paddle boats. No Regatta this year, our old lake may be empty by then and our licence for the new lake is still a work in progress. This year is all about completing the move and settling in.

New Lake at Colwyn? by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
glad to see that big lake will be back in use, I'm not that old, and remember the paddle boats there, then it all fell into disrepair. I take it the dinosaurs have moved out of the new club house! I take it general parking is either infront of the old bike rental building (from the prom) or up at the swimming pool at the top of the hill? Will this years mayors regatta be there? maybe I can bring my avatar picture some time!😊

Scratch-built Trafalgar class submarine 1986-87. It uses 2 x Engel piston tanks for the diving system. This video was at the Task force 72 regatta at Naracoorte in SA in November 2016.

Creepy by chumbucket Petty Officer   Posted: 7 months ago
This is Creepy,a springer tug that is 5 yrs old now.He pushes #1200lb pumpkins for the pumpkin regatta along with saving many of the PMPBA club members boats from certain sinking or floating away.I never go to any of the club floats without him.He runs a Harbor freight 550 motor running a Target Hobby 320amp ESC,on a 5000mah 2s lipo battery.The plans can be downloaded free off the internet and takes about a week to build for the experienced builder,Great for the new boat builders to do because its an easy build tug.Simple door skins,some balsa,1/2a running gear from Dumas,1.5 brass prop,2x2 rudder from aluminum,cheap 2channel radio,ESC from Target Hobby.

Colwyn Bay MBC - 2017 Regatta is cancelled by kinmel Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 8 months ago
The 2017 Mayor's Cup Regatta that was due to be held on 23rd July at Colwyn Bay has had to be cancelled and may not return in future years. We are in the process of moving to our new lake and we are yet to install all the facilities there. There is also the small matter of obtaining the necessary Licence, plus H&S and Insurance approvals to hold large events there. Thank you to all the clubs, traders and individuals whose support over the years made it all possible.

Dutch River by Kipper Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 9 months ago
She is lit, full set of Nav lights, plus a set of 3 towing lamps either side of the mast, 2 spots lighting the rear deck, bridge lights & partial lighting in the lower cabins. There are other lights to add yet, i.e. search lights on the bridge roof, foredeck spotlamp And 3 lamps around the superstructure above doors. Last month she won our clubs 'Torchlight Regatta' trophy, was well chuffed. 😀

Pilot Boat by cormorant Admiral   Posted: 9 months ago
Recently built from an Aeronaut kit, this is a 1/24th scale Pilot Boat based on a German design. Powered by two 540 brushed motors with 3 bladed brass props it attains something like scale speed. The colour is Volkswagen Bright Orange, courtesy of Halfords and the non-slip deck is acrylic green mixed with silver sand then covered with a silk finish varnish. The boat was filmed at an illuminated regatta staged by Bournville Model Yacht and Power Boat Club on their lake in Bournville, Birmingham %u2003
