30" Linda May is my boat of choice

Mr Watts is catching up with me after nearly 20 months

Hopefully the boats he's got for me fit in the car

Would love to try your barge Ray

Hi Ray

Richard was selling on behalf of someone

Trouble was I bought it in February

It's because Richard came across on the ferry that I've got it now.

Don't forget Ben sails round my back garden

Ive been taking notes

In a real size TSB the mizzen is attached to rudder to assist turning rudder

So in scale yes connect

Hi Ray

It would be interesting if a barge match could go ahead

Let's hope there's lots of notice before it happens

Keep us posted

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.
