Not quite correct Dave, the post on the Mayhem website is a bit exaggerated I'm afraid.

Dave Wooley has been in contact with both myself and Paul Freshney earlier this week. He has been admitted to hospital to deal with a long standing condition that his doctors now consider to require surgical attention. The prognosis is good, he is not expected to be in hospital very long and anticipates making a full recovery in a month or two if all goes well.

So no need to panic or for a stream of posts wishing him a speedy recovery. That goes without saying. Paul or I will post updates if and when it becomes appropriate. In the meantime his regular Rangefinder column in Model Boats will continue as usual.

That's OK Dave. Dave Wooley does a lot of work for Model Boats and we had understood that he didn't want to go public at this stage. The post on Mayhem was a bit alarmist and didn't reflect our understanding of the situation. When there is any further news we will let our members know.

Tuesday 7th February

I can confirm that Dave Wooley is back home now and he expects to make a full recovery, and quite quickly too.

Indeed, he seemed to be his usual cheerful self this morning.

Paul.

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
