 standard size springers.  I Will be posting build rules soon with the weapons rules. They will be non negotiable about certain weapons. If you are unsure then you can pm me for clarification.
Please be aware that it will be the builders responsibility to ensure that electric are waterproofed to stop damage to them in the event of a sinking.
as I said before most boats will be put out of action by mechanical or electrical failure.

Well, I will not be playing, and may give Wickee a miss next year. 
As it is far too many shows within reasonable distance are on the same weekends.

Bob shame you are not going, tenth anniversary for mayhem, it's gona be good, that 1-3 hour trip for all of the English lads is Shite, but us from Glasgow lads have been going five years on an average 8-10 hour trip over the last five years, last year was a record 8 hours,the year before that 14 hours. Hey we love mayhem and what it does, Martin if my boss knew how much it cost me to come and see you she would sat no. But tell her your a great guy. Get our kilts from last year on the site.

Only been up for a couple of hours and all you lot can do is moan. Bobk we spoke last year about your situation and I fully understand. Shame as really want to see Poly working properly but I can wait till Black Park.
As opposed to all whose whining about no bombs etc get a life. It's demolition derby, not let's go bomb someone with and aircraft.  Demolition derby is about making a boat robust enough to withstand knocks and bashes. Go and try to sink a boat with 2.5mm balsa sides. Not as easy as you think.  Once a boat is immobile it is out of the competition .
As opposed to debris there should be none to very little. If a boat sinks it can be recovered much like any other boat that sinks.

Sorry guys, but the key incentives to go to model boat shows is to meet good friends and generally drool over their model making skills.  Sure, I get a lot of hints and tips plus plenty of ideas on how to improve my own techniques.

Page after page of this thread, going back to June, seems entirely focussed on how we can destroy each other's models.  If I appear to be the lone dissenting voice, so be it.  This could take up a large part of whatever day I am able to come.  If you all want to concentrate on destruction, fair enough, but it holds no interest for me.  Apologies.  I do love Wickee . . .  but . . .

Currently, we looking at building a new build series based on the mini Thomas the 12" Tug!   :-))

 other one missing the point.
It's not about smashing up your beloved model.   It's is about. Building a springer tug specifically for this event. For god sake. It don't even have to look like a tug
   It's going to cost a few quid do build.
Stick all the electrics in a plastic sealed container. Or condom or something.  That way you don't loose your beloved electrics
