Hi Dave, yes it a shame , the way I tend to tell new members is, if you buy it from a shop as a kit or from a plan,, if you need to mend it, you have an idea of how to go about it, you put it together yourself. If you buy ready made models you may not know how to mend it if it goes wrong. But there is usually some one to help out if needed, which is always nice to know.
We sail at Margam country Park , just out Swansea, South Wales. We sail on Thursday and Sunday morning. We have the use of two lakes to sail on, and the park has good parking and cafe facilities Good banter and fun is had each week amongst the members.we sail all sorts of boats, and yachts. If you are planing a trip down this way, bring your boat and join us for the day. Cheers for now. Ken.
