Someone has sent me an ACTion unit for repair. It was in a box which I had previously used myself because my own ‘Return To’ label was still attached. Unfortunately there was no sender’s name, address or note enclosed with the unit.

If anyone recognises this by my description then please contact me via PM. I shall need to know from you the date of posting; whether it was sent by 1st or 2nd class post; the ACTion part number (e.g. P13) and a brief description of what it is or isn’t doing. If you have a copy of a Certificate of Posting then that would be splendid. I’ll copy this to all three RC boat model forums which I use.

No apologies for "bumping" this post. I still have no idea who this belongs to, although (being me) I've fixed it and I really would like to reacquaint it with its owner. Please let me know if anyone starts moaning about our poor service in connection with not getting repairs back - we can do most things but the impossible will always remain just out of reach.

We've now located the owner. Mystery over.

Sounds more like a Senior Moment, to me?

I don't think the gentleman could be said to be in the first flush of youth (judging by his handwriting at any rate). We all have 'em, though.

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
