While I never had the opportunity or pleasure of knowing Stewart personally, I did know of him through Mayhem and Model Boats Magazine. I am sure he will be greatly missed, not only by his family, but also by the people involved in his hobby.


My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Scoop,
You did so much for us and in the end we could do nothing for you.
So unfair that you never got to enjoy your much anticipated early retirement.
You'll be remembered as a BIG man.
Rest in peace my friend.

Deepest sympathy to Jackie and family at this sad time.

                           You where a true gent and a will be greatly missed, a sad loss for all. Just thought this said it all.
 
Even though he's gone
His memory still remains in our hearts
His smile and face never fade
We think of him as we go on each day
The good times we remember
And the days spent together
We be in all our memories forever
So watch over us and make sure we're ok
And we will see you again someday.

I'm really struggling for words. Scoop has been a great ambassador for the hobby, for BMPRS, and a friend to many. He was always one of the first when it came to lending a helping hand, and he will be greatly missed by us, and many others.

Deepest condolences to Stewart's family.

 It is difficult to know what to say. In the relatively short time that I got to know Scoop, I soon became aware of his many talents and fantastically positive attributes. He was a true gentleman always willing to help and a great ambassador of model power boating. His presence will be massively missed but always remembered.
Rest in peace Scoop.
Our thoughts are with his family at this very difficult and sad time.

Yes I echo all of the comments made above. The news is very sad. The thing that really will make me remember scoop is how he fought his illness with bravery and dignity continuing his bmprs duties too the full  in his professional way.
He did not falter (despite clearly  being unwell) and continued to command respect and ran meetings in his capacity to the highest standards.


Like craig, I did not know scoop very well, but he always made us welcome and gave us great professional advice when we joined the club only a year or two ago. He will be sorely missed and a hard act to follow!


Finally it goes without saying, I offer my deepest sympathy to his family at this very difficult time.

I, too, would like to add that he was the perfect ambassador for this fantastic hobby, I remember meeting him for the first time about seven years ago at Model Ex in Northamptonshire. Even though me and my Dad were beginners to the hobby he carefully explained the benefits of props and hull forms to us showing us his boats and the different systems to get them to work. Without him we would have a poorer understanding of the hobby. Every Model Ex we would eventually meet and discuss fast boats and their designs- it was due to Scoop that we use the props that we use on our boats and we will forever be in his debt.
Me, and my Dad would like to add our condolences to his family, and the BMPRS, for their loss. A true model boater and one of the keenest modellers I have ever met.
RIP Scoop

A very spooky thing happened to me this evening, for a reason unknown to me I decided to chat to my partner about my OMRA days and mentioned that I had read somewhere in the past that there are more organisations for powerboat racing nowadays.

Chrissie then did a search for me and came up with the BMPRS site and then of course we both received an almighty shock.



Some of you will know of me, and that Stewart pitted for me from my time in OMRA from 2004 to 2007 during which time we won the D Class Championship with DM's Sigma51.


We didn't always see eye to eye and had our ups and downs especially in our winning year when often I would valve bounce because I couldn't find him when he was needed for the next race, of course by then he had started doing bits for the Model Boats rag which took his attention more and more and resulted in him helping me less and less, indeed it was this situation that lead me to crown him "Scoop"


Little did I know then that the name would stick as it did.


I find it scary that we fell across this sad news like this, otherwise we would never have known it had happened.


Stewart would do anything you asked of him and had a heart of Gold, I haven't seen him for some time now but the shock of this news has stunned me.


My deepest condolences to his wife Jackie and her family, we had some great days, hard times, good times but most of all a lot of great memories which no one can ever take away from us.
 
Rest in peace Stew, at least you won't have to prepare my props again!


Gary.

I am deeply saddened with the passing of our Forum member & fellow modeler Stewart ( Scoop ). Being a long way away we had never met but we did exchange PM"s. Our deepest condolences to his family & friends.When this happens it makes it much harder because of the distance involved. His loss will leave a big space in the model boating community that will be hard to fill if ever. Mick in Canada.

It is some time since the last post to this topic, time travels too fast!
When ever my mind is on BMPRS and boating things, Scoop is never far away from my thoughts. I remember the encouragement he gave me as a new member, help and advice and fabulous enthusiasm and such positive energy.

I know I am not alone because his name often crops up which is a lovely thing. I don't know if this is the right thing to say, but if Scoop was looking down upon us during current race events, I think he might be saying, "Keep it going Guys and Gals!" And I bet he would be brimming with excitement and smiling ear to ear!
