I would just like to say a big thank you to the Colwyn bay club for the invite (via Stavros)
to allow me the chance to exhibit some of my boats and to demo straight running, steam powered of course !!!!!!!. I hope all folk enjoyed seeing what a high speed steam boat can do. Best of show for me had to be Bobs "Great Eastern" which looked and perforned just like the real thing (not that I remember of course I'm-not that old-----)and I now know the secrect how it does----ssssshhhhhhhh.
Well done to Ray et al for a great day--heres to next year year
Sorry no pics as I seem to have run out of time talking, drinking tea ( I do like my tea) and playing boats.

Thanks Phil (and Stavros) for your kind words regarding Great Eastern, and thanks for bringing her in, when the battery failed
I should think, your straight line steam running would be good training for a goalkeeper!
It looked hard work catching the beast at full speed!
See you at Llanberis.............Bob

Great Show Colwyn Bay Club ,the fact that you were let down by a trader didn't retract from the overall show and thanks to everyone for their hard work and it goes without saying "That includes the ladies" for their hard work and comitment in the refreshment tent !!.
Looking foreward to next one ,but sit back and have a rest ......but don't sit on your laurels a it only crushes them you know.
Well done !!
Ducky, Etherow Model Boat Club

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
