I haven't seen anything from Dave Wooley for quite a while, does anyone know why? I miss his "Seen on my Afternoon Walk" photos and commentary.

Dave Wooley - He's alive and well - I was talking to him yesterday.

Hello Peter thank you for your concern . Yep I still very active on a number of projects and a little bit of home improvement for good measure . I do take my usual beach walks but the weather or tide comes into play and mucks up my plan to take a picture or two. Presently looking towards the visit of the three Cunard Queens to the Mersey for the 170th at the end of the month , hoping the weather doesn't drop of the edge and we end up with the squalls we had for the Battle of the Atlantic commemoration of 013.

It's good to hear that all is well with you. It seems such a long time since you posted an update on your afternoon walk that I was beginning to think that you may have been unwell. I would love to have the opportunity to see all three Queens together. I have seen them all individually, and taken numerous photos when my visits to Sydney coincided with any of the Cunard Queens, but to see them together would be wonderful. Hopefully I can look forward to some photos from you on the forum when the day arrives.
I did my own version of your walk on a recent visit to the port of Newcastle NSW, and managed to get a few reasonable shots of a couple of bulk carriers entering and leaving the Hunter River, together with their attendant tugs, which I'll put on a separate thread when I get a chance.

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.
