Jeanie Deans in trouble at Bury marina!
 
Handed over control of the ship to my No1......Capt P Teal, who was totally inexperienced in the handling of big ships in stormy weather and was blown violently by an offshore wind into the harbour wall!
 
Needless to say, Capt Teal is on a charge!
 

Only joking, Duckie!
 
It transpired that the starboard engine had slipped a grubscrew!......lol

 I blame the chief engineer Bob,he hadn't checked the connections on the conrods before sailing out in those rough conditions , and the starboard paddles were what was needed to be her up into the wind,still she didn't end up like the ship on the beach at Blackpool ,must have been due to good building.

 Did you mention grub Ashley ,they do a wonderful bacon Buttie at Bury Metro Marine Club !

Yes it was an adventurous day Paul, I've ever seen Bob run before ,will have to call him Bob Chatterway in more ways than one. I won't mention the trip there and back with his Sat Nav ,needless to say you are not supposed to argue with the woman Bob!.

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.
