In the Isle of Man the official Diamong Jubilee day is July 6th just to be different.

On June 3 you have the Thames River Pageant, so we are having a Manx version in the North of the Island at Milntown House on the 6th July, a Friday, and the day after our national day. It will be the Milntown Model Boat Pageant and I hope to get at least 60 boats afloat.

Are there any other model boat pageants planned anywhere? We hope to assemble as many "floating" boats as possible and intend to have several long tows of vessels parading the lake.

We'll let you know how we get on.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
