Have to hand it to Neil and the Hilton Antiques fair..

Anyway some more late breaking news and in good old style of you can never tell whats turning up (see the George Turner bit ) George Turner is still coming incidentally but this morning  Yes two days to go to set up...we have just had a phone call from Mtroniks and they would like to come along and have a stand...Not selling... but their stuff can be bought on other stands ... Now they maybe struggling with the Saturday and they are working on it but they are definitely going to be there on the Sunday...

As a footnote manufactures and distributors like Horizon and Mtroniks will never sell at shows but usually their products are available elsewhere, so if you'd like a chat to Mtroniks come and say hello, wherever we manage to put them

Good to see the Clyde back in the water Neil, wish I could bring the Solent up tomorrow but it won't fit in with 4 passengers in the car.   {:-{  See you tomorrow, I'll have my camera with me so hopefully will get some good photos. Dave.  :-))

cheers dave

 we'll give it a go tomorrow pm but I cooked the small motors in it, red hot on the second sail today.................and haven't any more so unless they run ok tomoz after they cool down over night, it might just sit there, sadly..I really could do with two big fan motors, but don't feel inclined to replace them as I'm trying to sell it.....a bit of a waste of money, as I won't be sailing it again after this weekend, ever again.

Wish I could afford it, beautiful lifeboat. My house sale should be going through so we'll see what happens there, maybe have some pennies left at the end.  %) See you tomorrow, Dave.  :-))

Leave money and cards at home !! :-))

##############

Had a trip out there , spent a pound or so, met a load of familiar faces, and lighting above the pond was agreeable with my camera this year..

What I hope will soon become an international  or at least regional event at any shows where there is water, a few polluxs or similar size tug and football -New Style..

This is not a match for the faint hearted , if Your Tug is not sealed correctly it Could sink..  :} due to aggresive tackling.

Not as long as I would have liked but teh memory card was full  :-X

Possible !! next match = E'Port Spring show     (someone bring a big fish catching net thing)

I'll put some pics on tomorrow when can use my laptop. Great show, good to meet fellow mayhemers. Star of show for me was the quarter scale Talus tractor as used by the RNLI for launching carriage mounted lifeboats such as the Mersey class. Well done to the organisers and everyone that supported the show, soon be Warwick. Dave.   :-))

Other than the above video I only took a few general pictures as I was concentraing on pacific projects..

But here are a few, the ones on the pond are a bit ! blured as i did not want to use the flash and the action was so quick my camera could not keep up..

Was talking to the chap who built the Talus M3 tractor, and he has also built a minature Caterpillar V8 working petrol engine for it,( he said it was easier to make it work off petrol than the diesel that it should be powered by) approximately 8 inches long plus working gear box, but is having problems at the moment moulding his own Distributer cap for the engine.....He told me that hopefully he'll have it ready working and installed for next year's shows.....from the workmanship that went into the Tractor, it will be just incredible.....what a fantastic machine the Talus was.

Good to see you Neil, didn't get chance for much of a chat though, will catch up online Im sure. That Talus tractor is incredible, weighs in at 1.5 ton apparently! Didn't know about the engine too! Photo from my mobile, more tomorrow. Dave.  :-))

yeh, sorry about that, dave.........I took my daughter to the bar for a drink of fanta as they'd run out in the show hall, and bumped into an old college mate from 40 years ago.....we spent nearly an hour in there having a drink..........sorry mate.
