Yep! We retired ours on the day after I retired from my "main" job in 2006. Now it's whoever gets up first who makes the tea, as long as it's after 7.45am. Ain't life grand?

I retired the two things that seemed to dominate my professional tie and watch and I haven't worn either since.

Dave, The current odds are 2:1 that the new boat is a fairey. wink

Yes weddings & funerals now

Strange ties have gone over the last 10 years in business, unless you really want the job 😂,

I used to be a site manager they always kept my neck warm, and the guys knew who carried the can when it went pear shaped. 😯

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
