Took advantage of a pleasant evening tonight and had the first sailing of JDAW with the help of my No1......Duckie
 
She sailed straight off the drawing board, as they say, no trimming required!.......Just lucky?
 
Took lots of pictures but the background of parked cars etc spoilt most of the shots
 
More action

shots to follow.....................Bob

Bob, very nice indeed (if a little rusty). The b&w shot looks amazingly authentic!  Ashley

Fabulous looking ship Bob. You must have been chuffed at having no hitches on the first voyage. There is an impressive amount of water turbulence from the wash.

Those pics look just the thing for a photo competition I am in the process of putting together for the website. The basic idea is to give prizes for the photos of your models which look closest to the original vessel and make it hard to decide whether it is a model or not. I have to draft the rules and run it all past the powers that be so it may take a week or so to launch. But you can start snapping in the meantime....

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
