Yet another fine Sunday morning at Setley pond so a few more photos.














Just a normal Sunday dont you know.















Oh yes and the wee Welsh fella with the Mayhem cap who has his hand infront of his face so you wont recognise him, is our mate Tug Kenny seeing how the other half live. Oh yes, a thoroughly nice man.

Pacific Buccaneer owned by  Ray Hellicar; dont know if he wants to sell it.

Not sure on the scale, about the same as the aziz I would think.

Not keeping to bad Jay, nothing happening on Kens build this week as he's having a week off.

What a week off I had. Weather was outstanding


I called in on the Setley meeting and here a few shots of Dicky D and his boats. What a superb lake. Very calm and flat, with easy launching at the water's edge.

The Solent Model Boat Club club gave me a lovely welcome and I enjoyed my visit tremendously. Dicky even let me drive his boat.   No ---  I didn't sink it.  %)

A trip afterwards to the RNLI at Lymington.  They had just returned from a mission and were washing down the RIB.

I bought a few things from their shop and had a chat with them. Great bunch of guys.

Perhaps the hot weather got to it.     %)    Wiring glich maybe.

Thanks for the welcome. I had a lovely time. Now you know where we went afterwards.  :}

I've bought the toy Severn and the original 'Severn' drawings from the RNLI ( 18) and not forgetting some little lifeboat men. My next project eh !!  can't wait.

Yet again another beautiful Sunday morning. A lot of the photos did not come out to well because of the glare of the sun off the water.

We could also do with a lot of rain as the pond level is very low at the moment.














Motley crew

A few photos from Setley Pond this morning. There aren't to many as the sun was reflecting off the water.

Thanks, you two.

You will of course have noticed the two new boats on their maiden voyage Ken.

Also a bit more water since you were there Ken, it's now both sides of the car park.
