Well, as Graham Ashby has now left the helm of model boats (he might still turn up) we wont be having coverage from the magazine until Nick writes a report up.......Nick I can help with that!
But on a higher plane.....I have found my hat and goggles, That should please CarlMT as he wore the goggles last year at Deans marine weekend and looked like Boris out of Men in Black (google it). I have also found a certain outfit that will be worn in part on Saturday.......But I cannot find my tuxedo for saturday night!
PS bring some warm clothing for the BBQ, it did get very chilly last year!!!

Hi all Deans Mari e will be at Wickstead over the weekend, not a full stand as the old bones can not cart it all 4 times, so if you want anything in particular gives us a mail and we will put it in the van, boat bits only ?
 We will have on display on our stand the next release to the range, first time out on show to the public and to be released very soon,
Large Gas Carrier tanker, full of gas, from Ron see you at the show,  bring yachts, we do not need the wind, still have not found the marquee from last year.Regards Deans Marine


Ron's probably loading the van now, so if you have any orders or specific items you what him to bring ( and avoid P&P! ),

  .... get your orders in ASAP!  -    https://www.deansmarine.co.uk/   -       deansmarine@yahoo.co.uk

Hi Phil Would love to, I think the hangover is easing from last time, 2 years ago. can not stay in the van so have to load up and drive home on Sat evening and back again on Sunday morning and then set up again, If I can, I may drop in a say hello but will have to leave the anti freeze alone.Look forward to seeing you all again, got some of my boats ready to drive with NEW modern radio gear, looking forward to sailing a model in the light summer zephyrs we normally have at mayhem,  how dos this 27 meg stuff work ?, and any one seem my Marquee

well, we are coming up my lad and I ... we have not been before and not really sure what we are going to see... other than a big lake and some boats things LOL...


now I had a problem with my wooden launch boat but I did order a new receiver and it's arrived ( where it is now though :-/ ) on the off chance that was the problem with the boat but not sure if I will get time to put it all togeather gulp!!!


I would like to bring out sail boat but that's old crystal transmitter so I am guessing this is going to be an issue??


are there going to be any trade sales for picking up bits and bobs for builds we have on going? I would like to say we would bring our Pegasis but it's er... in bits LOL..


So might have to ask to borrow a boat if any one is kid enough to lend us one... We are coming from Southampton.. and collecting lifeboats for next builds from a chap we are meeting up there..

Hi surfer71,
I know Ron Dean will be there not sure who else, also no problem on 27 of 40 meg, we do have a frequency board, I still use 27 meg (not bad for a straight running boat)
If my grandchildren don't destroy the boats I am more than happy to loan you one for 2 days of....well MAYHEM  {-) {-)  You will find me in the Blackheath MPBC gazebo,


Hey Klunk you thought you had a lot to get rid of, not sure there is space in the car for Steamboat Apprentice with all the bits I have, and there certainly isn't space for vegetables.   %%

Finally got the pass from management so sorting stuff out.
Is anyone taking a charger that will cope with 12v (10cell) NiMh battery pack? Mine only runs up to 8 cell.May not need it since there could easily be a sinking feeling and I could split the pack but I thought I'd ask first.
Cheers for now.

It seems my wife is packing for a 3 year expedition to unknown lands rather than a few days in Kettering.
Hoping to set off at around 5pm Tonight for the 155 mile journey of hell around the M25 and along the M1 - we're booked in at a place a few miles away so should be able to be there nice and early in the Morning.

Can't wait to join in again after 2 years of missing it.
