Despite a very irritating radio problem, Jay's River class HMS Mersey (P283) ran well when she was working.
( Now is dry dock to undergo extensive investigation and redecoration refit! )


Jay she looking very good , nice bit of modeling.

Well that's the Scottish contingent arrived home safe and well. We would just like to thank Martin, Ruth and Gina for all the hard work they do over the weekend, the irrepressible Pete (Klunk) for seemingly being everywhere at the same time, the effervescent Phil and his lovely apprentice, all the Luton lads, Nick and all Wicksteed crew for all their hard work, Stav, Kelly and their two beautiful daughters and not forgetting Gran, what a lovely family, to Carl and Flo, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you both and to mister Ron Dean for his undying support year after year.
To all who made us once again, feel so very welcome? We thank you ALL from the bottom of our hearts, we`re so looking forward to next years event.

Ps.... The sight of the man in a three piece onesy, wearing a pilot helmet and goggles, doing his best cat burglar impression, in broad daylight and in front of everyone , was a sight I`ll never forget, I nearly wet myself with laughter  {-)

I must admit she does look superb on the water even when the gremlins got into the electrics and shes sat idle.

Still plenty to do and not upto your standard Dave but im happy with her so far Stu did a nice job building it so he has to take credit for doing the hard work  :-))

Well what can I say, the sun certainly shone on the righteous (well Mayhemerís) this weekend. The apprentice and I had a fantastic weekend, as has been said too many names to mention, but our thanks go to our glorious leader Martin, who was beautifully controlled by Ruth and Gina (who Steph and I would like to say a big thank you for all the tea and of course the bacon butties).
We didnít arrive until very late on the Friday after a horrible journey, but thanks to Klunk and the formation tent erecting team we were enjoying a well-earned drink by 10 50pm, it did go a bit downhill from there though. O0
It was great to meet up with old friends and make some new ones, Terry, thanks for letting me try my hand a sailing (and putting the fear of god into meÖ.itís not easy is it) CarlÖ.Iíll be in touch (about you know what) and of course Big Bri, Davey and Ron for not only the douvet but the teeth (you had to be there) not to mention the hurty head in the morning. Mr Milbourn who arrived to find me surrounded by wires muttering dark things about electronics, has now advised me to ring him before plugging anything together to save him the time of repairing the ESC (again)  :embarrassed:  Maybe I should stick to steam.
Of course  I must not forget Steamboat Apprentice for putting up with life in a very small tent, who had it not been for the Slo Gin (cheers Nick & Steve) and the brandy (cheers boys from the north) she would have found a hotel. Next year all planned chaps, this very day we have been out a bought a huge tent..
See you all next year if not before

Phil & Carl

I have to admit, there were some stunning models on display this weekend - absolutely top class workmanship  :-))
 
Those First War ships appear almost too delicate to sail..... Beautiful models!!! Thank you for showing them off to us.

Flo getting acquainted with our friends from Scotland:
 

 

 
Any port in a storm!  We had heard that rough weather was the norm at Wicksteed, so we tried the dock for size should the need arise:
 

 

 
Now THIS is what I call a sailboat - JD's beautiful J Class yacht:

I did not notice your harbour until I saw Carl and his fellow Ferry operator sheltering in it. It again demonstrates your excellent facilities.

John's Yaughts did look impressive, they have alomost persuaded me to have a go!

hi all
 Many  thank for the kind words from many, it is always a pleasure to be at Mayhem weekend, keeps me fit as well now ? all unloaded and put way now, on the wet Tuesday.
 Many thanks to all who attended, it was a great weekend, and  as others have said before, its a great atmosphere, and what a super bunch of modellers you meet, its is as model boating should be, great cameradie, and helping each other, plus a bit crazy helps.
Again thanks to all, look forward to next year, this time I will stay overnight somehow and join the festivities, I do miss them.
 Some picture s of models from our range seen at the weekend.
 Happy boating
 Regards
 Ron Dean
