rudder and water cooling by boaty Commander   Posted: 2 days ago
Very nice model. The moulding looks of good quality and there is opportunity for a lot of detail to be added. Sailing at scale speed it will appear very realistic and should look great on the water. Boaty😊

Perkasa by Donnieboy Admiral   Posted: 2 days ago
Nice video.I like your sailing location.Especially liked seeing the Perkasa following the lead boat.Both are running good.

Sunk yacht by Divermike Petty Officer   Posted: 4 days ago
Thanks lads, it would nice to see the owner get it back, it was quite a sight seeing it 20ft down, stood upright on its keel in full sail, we couldn't believe how heavy it was to drag back out

Triton by Krampus Admiral   Posted: 5 days ago
Hello! Even with the long and snowy winters, there is always a chance to sail around here as there is a local small lake fed with water from underground thermal sources, so no icebergs nor duckling poop minefields in the area. Just snow during the time, and I can survive with that. This particular pond, which is the closest to home, just reopened yesterday. Weather dramatically improved since last week so "Alles ist Gut" :)

Sunk yacht by Divermike Petty Officer   Posted: 5 days ago
Hi, I have just registered here to try and re-unite a very beautiful yacht we recovered from the bottom of Llyn Padarn North Wales yesterday, its over 5ft high with its sails up, very heavy lead keel, full of electronics, there are pictures of it on "Facebook Dorothea Quarry" page (That's our usual dive site) its not been sunk that long as in quite good condition, Im sure someone will recognise it right away ..... Best regards Diver Mike

Bits n pieces arrived / Aft Deck Mk 2 built ;-) by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 days ago
I think you're right Donnie, a renovation is often more difficult and time consuming than a new build! That's good to hear about the E-Z connectors, do you have a link to an On-line shop by any chance? BTW: saw your post about Krampus' sailing area, actually I wanted to be there as well but my boat ain't ready yet 😭 attached a few pics of my 'Home Port' in Munich, 3rd pic shows the corner where I sail from, right next to the Biergarten😋, cheers Doug😎

Nice area to sail your boats.Is it recent that you were able to sail? Right now we have ice pellets and freezing rain coming down.

Leicester boating water. by DimReaper Petty Officer   Posted: 5 days ago
Hi Colin There is still a club sailing model boats on the lake, although they have a dedicated body of water for this now, sorry but i can't recall the name of the club, Regards Steve

looking for a Mersey Ferry Model by 4clubs Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 days ago
The model is 1.48 scale scratch built on a fibreglass hull.Very detailed and accurate. Radio Controlled 2.4Ghz with working lights. She is 38 inches long For sale complete with the radio and batteries ready to sail.She is very weatherproof and can sail in rough conditions. The top is sealed on and released with four screws, no need to get inside to charge her up as there is a charging point at the top of the funnel. A display stand is also included I am asking £800. If you are interested you can come and have a look before committing yourself. email me direct on

Speedline Thames Barge kit. by deepdiver Lieutenant   Posted: 6 days ago
Hi Going on their advert it looks like an old H.F.M kit brought up to date, I had the H.F.M one back in 1990 that cost me all of £70.00, if I remember right I had to increase the under water size of the rudder. As for sailing I don't remember much as after a few times out, I found that sail boats just was not my thing. Sorry that I can not be any more help Fred

Calling Devon boaters. Help! by Keystone Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 6 days ago
The Kings Pond is in Torquay right down by the sea. The depth should be good for your uncle's boat, about 12 inches, but not good for and decent sailing yacht. Keep in touch, Peter

Speedline Thames Barge kit. by Nerys Petty Officer   Posted: 6 days ago
Having had an interest and connections with Thames Sailing Barges going back to the days when they still carried cargo under sail, I am contemplating building a model. I am a relative newcomer to modelling, so am considering the Speedline kit. What I really want to know is how this model sails. I'm not expecting speed, I just want to know if the performance is acceptable and she handles reasonably well. Hope someone can advise me. Nerys
