Model Boat Mayhem embraces just about all types of model boating and this was reflected in the models on display and in action over the weekend. There are not many events where you will see 10 Rater yachts, massive OMRA offshore powerboats, steam straight runners, Springer tugs, paddlers, lifeboats, hovercraft, scale sail, kit and scratch built scale models, Club 500 racers plus even a computerised flash steam model all in one place and at the same time, many sharing the water simultaneously. It was indeed a magnificent showcase for the model boating hobby and drew enormous public interest.
The accompanying pictures give just an indication of the variety of models on show and everyone agreed on departing that next year cannot come too soon!

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
