Hi all,

Does  anyone know what is happening to the good looking 'Duke of Lancaster', last seen rotting away at Llanerch-y-Mor on the North Wales coast.

Nice photographs, thanks for the information. I was interested after visiting some years ago.

The ship is still there rotting away, although her decks were cleaned this year according to the website below. Managed to take this photo from the train window whilst on the North Wales Coast steam train excursion.

This is an interesting article about the arcade game machines which were found inside the vessel.

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
