    Hi Bob, yes the Griffon belongs to Hayling Island Model Club Member Mike.
    The club are a great bunch of guys with a wide range of model knowledge and I enjoy being able the share media from such an enthusiastic club.
    Rob is the website manager who sent me the video clip - I thought it too good not to share through my RCSailing channel while experimenting with "Youtube shorts".
    P.S my channel is not monetarised - its just for fun.

    The problem seems to have worsened with the ever increasing population of Canada Geese !!.
    I recall reading a paper some time ago about the damage , nuisance and public health problems that these wild birds cause when 'domestically'
    encouraged . Just how much of this is fact I wouldn't know , other than nothing gets done untill there is a serious incedent in relation to the "Problem".

    Usually the annual weed problems come and go - but this year things look worse than ever in many areas around the UK.
    Is it that Councils and Park management consortiums don't know what to do - or do they need help ???πŸ€”

    Built by Buxton Model Boat Club member Adrian , he says :- "essentially the paddle boat is scratch built but uses some fittings and materials from a Disar "Vanguard" kit ".
    Adrian used drawings of "Flying Scotsman" for inspiration, but is not a faithful reproduction, although "Old Trafford" is also quite similar .
    This was the maiden voyage so plenty more work to be done on detail and ballast etc.as the boat still sits a bit low in the water.
    For reference see :-

    Believed to be from Revell Models , " INGA IV " is a model Ketch , owned and sailed here by Martin Ward of the Hayling Island Model Boat Club.

    RCSailing is just for fun, no gain. Other than sharing photos and videos relating to Buxton Model Boat Club activities, from time to time its nice to "showcase" models from other clubs and members as seen here with the link between BMBC & HIMBC - all sharing the common interest in model boats and the "Model Boat Website".
