In contrast to all that amazing power stuff below here is a very tranquil and sedate picture of my A class yacht in light breeze at Ilfracombe pond recently. Les Breame

Wonderful 👍 How about some musical underlay - 'I am sailing' Rod Stewart ?? 😉
Ah! Ilfracombe, lovely country. Used to pop down there from Weston Supermare in my youth.

In this follow-up video, Richard, a member of the Offshore Model Racing Association (OMRA) gives me some insight into racing and his boat.

Offshore RC powerboat racing (Southampton, UK) - Posted: 13 days ago by Dom of Essential RC
mdlbt.com/28968   >> Permalink
Have to admit that this is not something I was aware of until very recently...but in my quest to broaden my YouTube channel to all things RC I found the Offshore Model Racing Association (OMRA). I contacted them and they invited me down to their most recent racing event in Southampton. Despite the bumpy conditions there was some close racing and I think I captured the flavour of what it was all about.
Response by Dom of Essential RC on the 12 days ago
Awesome. Good to hear. Thanks.
Response by BOATSHED on the 12 days ago
What an awesome bit of video. that looks like real fun, wish I could afford to do that. How big are those boats and what engine's are in them?
Response by Dom of Essential RC on the 12 days ago
These E class boats are normally 65" but can go up to 85" (but are apparently rare because they take 2-3 people to launch). Engines in the 65" are typically 30cc Zenoah or similar.

Paul Devlin's Crash Tender - Posted: 15 days ago by Dave M

By way of a contrast I found some video from 2014 at the St Helens Open Day.
Beautiful scale model Crash tender operating at some speed.
Nostalgic or wot.
Great model Paul and well sailed
Dave
Response by Dave M on the 15 days ago
Certainly does Paul.
Without the reduced throttle it was deadly.
Didn't realise it was that long ago.

Response by BOATSHED on the 15 days ago

Aerokits 34" Crash Tender - Posted: 15 days ago by Dave M

Nice sunny Sunday Sail at Boundary Park so took the Crash Tender for a spin
28XX brushless 11.1v 2200 Lipo 35mm three blade brass prop.
Uses 30 amp cars ESC with small fan.
Tx set to 55% on throttle otherwise it takes off. Rudder throw at 50% for same reason. Switchable to 100% for slow speed manouvers.
Great fun.

PT 109 26CC - Posted: 19 days ago by BOATSHED
mdlbt.com/28614   >> Permalink
She is a 50" 26 cc petrol engine boat. She runs very well and sits on the water on the turns as if she is stuck to it. Like an idiot I run her up the side of the pond and she now needs both a new propshaft and prop.
Response by figtree7nts on the 19 days ago
Hi BOATSHED

Great looking boat, It's a shame about running her aground!
Response by Midlife306 on the 19 days ago
Looks an absolute hooligan👍
Response by John on the 17 days ago
I like it! Nice boat which handles well.

Miss Geico 29" - Posted: 21 days ago by BOATSHED
mdlbt.com/28407   >> Permalink
This is the 29" Brushless Miss Geico. Running on two 14.8 volt 5000mAh LiPo batteries. In Herbert Woods Boatyard in Potter Heigham Norfolk. She is pretty quick but do not know her top speed. Turns flat out on full rudder lock. Runs for about 15 to 20 minutes. Would recommend as a great fun boat.
Response by BOATSHED on the 20 days ago
Hi Martin (Westquay),I have seen the yacht's on Clapham Common Long Pond But sadly I don't seem to find them at all interesting. The same with thing's like Tugs and barges. I started when my dad and mum bought me an Areokits RAF Crash Tender for my ninth birthday. Rather than ruin the kit, my dad got me to draw round all the parts on old tea chests that he had got hold of and broke up. In all we built seven of them. For my Christmas present that year they got me a ED Hunter 3.46 cc diesel engine. They couldn't afford r/c so when my real one was finished it was fun as a kid to watch it go round and round until it arrived on the other side of Blackheath Pond. Or send it in a straight line and catch it on the other side. I have just seemed to progress from there and it just seem's to be addictive to try to get more speed. I do have some that are not as fast but still quite quick. I don't go for scale speed just speed. I have put 10cc engines in things that were meant for 7.5cc. With great success. The way I look at things is if we were all to think the same it would be a boring old world. I'm not into sports other than fishing and shooting,where as I have one 43 year old son that is football mad, and one 45 year old son that is into fishing and R/C quadcopters. I don't knock anyone's likes and dislikes as that's the way of he world. I know you are NOT putting my boat down, you probably don't see power boats in the same way. I have tried to get more speed from a brand new Webra 61 by adding too much extra nitro into the fuel and bending the conrod and having it break into pieces. Stupid I suppose but that's just me. I now love
these brushless motors as they are so fast. I am just a speed junkie. Who know's when I get a bit older I might just try out a yacht, but I'm only 66 and still wan't more speed. I have Just got myself a Graupner Rhode Island F1 tunnel hull with a brushless outboard and I'm hoping it goes even faster than this Miss Geico. that's just me for you. To each his own. Sorry to have gone on too long. any way have you posted any video of your yachts on here.
Response by lesliebreame on the 17 days ago
i know what you mean about speed and i am always trying to get more from my steam boats!!! they are very slow compared with your petrol and brushless jobs but my aim is for more speed .i am working on steam turbines at present which are very inefficient and not that powerful but the intention is eventually for more speed !! you want to try coal fired boiler boats [ i make my own ] . there is much to do pondside what with stoking and water filling and oiling and all and i get loads of fun ..... much more than sailing my old electric crash tender which was fun to build but boring to sail . les breame
Response by BOATSHED on the 17 days ago
It is surprising just what you can get a Crash Tender to do. They can be very fast and also handle very well on the water. Those Vosper hulls are amazing. That's why they were used for the fire tenders and MTB's etc. But then the Fairey hulls like the Huntsman and Spearfish also handle very well at speed.

Rivarama hits underwater object on test run--(the power of Brushless)
Response by rolfman2000 on the 21 days ago
Wow !!! Having said that. The cost of a little plastic joint is nothing against what else could have been trashed with a metal u/j. Glad it came out ok 😊
Response by John on the 21 days ago
Ouch!
Response by jarvo on the 20 days ago
You said it happened after 10 minutes, very surprised it lasted that long, the plastic U/J;s don't like high revs or torque, use a racing type metal u/j,
