Nice photos Richard, the new boats look great on the water. Sorry I missed the show last Saturday, problems with wife's car!

At last a warm day at the lake, we've never had so much water at this time of the year.

A few photos.

Certainly a nice place to be. It is a lot of water you've got there this time.

Nice selection of boats Dicky.

25 degrees C and sunny, light breeze what more do you need at the lake apart from boats.

Quit a lot of boats on the lake today plus the usual visitors and the obligatory salvage of the torpedo boat that collided flat out with a bouy and flipped. It was recovered intact which is unusual on our lake as no one has found the bottom of it yet.

Is that white cruiser a Deglet Nour?

Very nice to see a real cruiser apart from a Fairey of some description (much as I love 'em!)

Brilliant Richard!

Lovely pictures as always, a really nice selection you get at Setley, here at Eastbourne you're lucky if you see anything other than a large selection of Torpedo boats. Although I will post some pics up later of what was a beautiful day today, they will be nothing compared to what you've shown us here! Marine Modelling at its best.

I'm inclined to agree. That is a remarkable selection.  At our local pond when I've rarely been it's been a boring succession of Billings ocean tugs and cargo ships with the odd battleship of three feet bobbing around like a cork and being driven like a demented duck!

I would happily spend a morning at Setley with a flask and a box of sarnies just enjoying the action and variety.
Thanks for the pictures.

Ah, we can show them a couple of tugs now, Alex.  :-) Look forward to seeing your photos, did you manage to catch any of Denton?

Andy,

Yes I did, I got a few of your heroic rescue of the fast electric that went kaput. I'm scrabbling around for my camera lead now and will put them up later.

Hy Dicky
Would you know what the name of the trawler is in the pics you posted today, ( picture 3) and if it comes in a kit.
Many Thanks
