Ellesmere Port model boat lake by georgeo5664 Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year 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.

Ellesmere Port model boat lake by georgeo5664 Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Paul, We have a temporary pond at Hooton airfield and hopefully when we get settled we are thinking about putting a show on but not in March as it would be far to cold. Hope your keeping ok? George

Paul will give you a call when I get it cause i need you to have a look at the position of the motor if you don't mind cause it seems to be too high

raf crash tender 3ft by georgeo5664 Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Hello Paul well the bent shaft is another purchase i managed to find a complete shaft on eBay which is the same dimensions as the boat so hoping when it arrives it will fit but overall length is 230mm and outside diameter of tube is 8mm 😆 George

Yes I agree Stephen deserves a medal for keeping this site running i hope people relaise how much it actually costs to build a website never mind maintain it. I am no expert in websites but I no it costs a small fortune and no forgetting all the time it takes to keep it running.

I wouldnt be able to carry on with this hobby with out this website. A donation is a small price to pay for the amount of knowledge and experience you can receive and gain from this site. 👍

raf crash tender by georgeo5664 Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Paul. Thanks for all the info and thanks for the offer of help i will kindly take you up on it if you don't mind could you pm me when you are available and I will call up and see you sorry to be a pain but I really want to get this boat right as there is something about crash tenders that I really like. Again I really don't know where we would be without the knowledge of the fellow boaters and this site 👍

raf crash tender by georgeo5664 Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi Paul it is a single screw not to bothered about budget to be honest was going to use a electronics 15 amp speed controller and a planet 6 radio gear buts that's as far as I got i have ordered a mfa torpedo 850 motor for it but can change if it's not right I am sure I will use it in another project 😁 thanks for your help
