Martin.............is there anything nearby in the way of high street shops that 17 and 19 year old girls could spend their time for two days, they don't drink smoke or club it but like to shop, and what is the hotel situation like around those parts.

Yes:   :-)

1. Phil or Bill need to give it the once over (for 'elf & safety) first.
2. It's not fast.
3. If it is a 'fast boat', slow "demo" runs are permitted under rule 1.

martin . i think maybe there should be a time slot for fast boats and only one or 2 on the water at a time following a course ... the point being . they are still model boats maybe 20 mins each day or something .....
 maybe something to think about for the future ! ... personally id love to see some fast boats have a go at a course or something .. and i dont even like them lol

Hello.
Whats inside it ? If its petrol then a fail safe that cuts the HT off would be good. A fail safe to fully closed position check will always be carried out.
Having said all that there is next to no room on the lake with all the stuff on it so you just cannot open up any high speed boat this includes Fast lecy boats.
I did take my Makara Zen powerd boat out for a demo run on the lake but even me being a  Ex OMRA / BMPRS racer found it hard work to keep it going.
Still it would be good to see your boat doing some SLOW runs during the weekend So YES why not.
