You right Gareth. I am a member of the Northwales model engineering group who have there track a further 200 yards along the beach.
I have seen lots of old postcards showing model yachts being sailed on the pool and I am glad that still happens.
There won't be many scenic locations like that one

A disclaimer - the soft soldered rudder was on a Lindberg trawler, nothing like the forces involved on a sailboat. And there was a layer of paint between the solder and salt water. Putting a lot of force through a small contact area does need the basic strength of silver solder.

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
