    Boatshed a good morning
    As already mentionned in previous conversations we have a pond especially built for us complete in concrete 1,30 m deep and 2 levels below groundlevel ( to avoid the wind when we are sailing. We are based next to the yachting harbour and the river Schelde . The first row of houses is a couple of 100 meters away. Wa are not allowed to run these sort of boats.
    It's primarely the green party!!! Nothing is allowed any more these days. Even model airplanes or helis must have electric motors while their airfield is miles away from houses.
    I had 2 boats that run on petrol one was a chris craft, it was a joy, a pleasure to run them. But unfortunately those times are gone

    Wolle a good morning deutcher Modellbau Freund,
    i have wrote this already on many occasions. This is such a nice, well organised, friendly forum where nobody throw stones to each other. If you have a problem it's solved in 2 replies!
    Has it to do with the age of the people on this forum๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š or is it that we are still well educated people who respect each other

    our pond was ESPECIALLY built by a company that developed the left bank of the river in Antwerp. Our pond is situated 2m lower than the groundlevel to avoid to much wind to disturb our boating. The whole pond is in concrete and about 110 cm deep. If you have a problem with your model you can walk around the pond.We exist 124 years and the pond was delivered in the early 1950 ties. Now comes the best:
    next to us is the yachting harbour. The company that built our pond is taken over by the government and they re-develop the left bank of the river with new cycling paths for bycicles and e-bike, and spedelecs. Now we have to disappear and the government promised us to help find another pond. Never ever we have received a call to inform us about a "free" pond.
    THis is how things work today

    We have a pond which is especially built for us Modelboat fanatics but I must admit yours is romantic, idyllic and the scenery is muuuuuuuuuch more beautifull. I hope you can concentrate on your boat when you are navigating and not over looking the landscape!

    that's why a modelboatclub is so pleasant and rich , when you see all the different types of modelboats,how they were made and the experience you can share between the members and of course interested people who are passing by and ask how they were made
