EGREMONT by 4clubs Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
[Score: 5/10] 38"/1400g EGREMONT Twin Propellors (3 Blade 25mm) - Comments: Just Completed another Egremont Mersey Ferry in different colours this time. Not yet decided on power, electrics, etc just for show at the moment. Will probably sell it and let the new owner put in his own electrics.

Counter Rotating Props by 4clubs Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
CONTRA AND COUNTER rotating Props . Actually both are correct. Probably counter rotating is more correct for ships. We could argue for days!! Anyway they both go in different directions. One clock wise when the other is anticlockwise, but make sure they have left and right hand props, not the same type or you will be in trouble.

Counter Rotating Props by 4clubs Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
They are CONTRA not COUNTER rotating and on LIFEBOATS they turn inwards on other vessels they generally turn outwards when the vessel is in the forward direction.

Web Site Funding by 4clubs Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Spot on with calculations Allen 0.636% donations and only 1.1% last year. Its very sad that we think so little of supporting a great site. So glad you have made us all aware of our shortcomings. Cheers Max

Web Site Funding by 4clubs Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
From my reckoning there were only 44 people contributed to the website funding in 2016 with over 3775 members I think this is very disappointing, come on guys if you like the site then make a donation, surely you think its worth £5 for the year. I for one would be sorry to see the site go.

Mersey Ferry Royal Iris(Fish and Chip Boat) by 4clubs Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
Thanks for your kind coments. She was called the Fish and Chip boat because she was the only Mersey Ferry to have a Fish and Chip Bar on board. She had an extensive Dance floor and was great for functions especially with the fish and chip suppers available on board.

Mersey Ferry Snowdrop (ex Woodchurch) by 4clubs Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 years ago
Cheers Dave; thanks for the comments. Max F Still For Sale will be at Ellesmere Port in March 2017

Mersey Ferry Snowdrop (ex Woodchurch) by 4clubs Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi! fair comment, but the real thing was far from pristine. Now its in Razzle Dazzle colours on the Mersey and in my opinion looks awful. A friend of mine has made a model in these new colours a good representation but not to my taste.
