Mentioned elsewhere about soft foam boats, I have created interest in our Club by getting the members to make one of these to race accross our Lake.

If I cannot get a link up then you can see them in My Photos.

PS, I still get Adverts on the right hand side of the page covering up sections of the posts, I do NOT get this sort of thing on ANY other forum I look at.

I agree that this site has it's own little ways as do others. Try leaving a space between photos otherwise they seem to 'glue' themselves together. Your post above looks OK to me.

Len, I have to take my hat off to you for producing a galleon of such outstanding simpleness and general whatever.

it should get a design award in the 5 minute build category (ish)

My sort of galleon. And meeting all h&s criteria, child safe, surely insurance has the lot.

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
