New Member saying Hi
« on: September 24, 2009, 03:27:52 PM »

Just wanted to say Hi to every one,

I've already had a look around a play with the search button.

Model wise I've built a couple of footy sail boats for fun, and a Wee Nip (rather over sailed now no longer class legal) at the start of the summer I got a 1/72 model slipway puffer I got her mostly built (runs in bath) when I distoryed the top cabin which I'm now replacing with wood, I then also got Glandular fever, so concentrating on small things was hard, so looking through old model boats magazines and started on a Sea helper, a small tug/pilot I was obviously very Ill when I cut out the frames but with some remedial work I have a hull and am starting on deck cabin. It will be powered by a 545 motor 6V SLA battery with a second battery for lights (and ballast) the boat is 24" long at 1/15 scale I've never built anything so large.

looking forward  to more modeling in the future.

meant to say I make my living as a canoe/kayak instructor  hence the avatar, and used to work as a bicycle mechanic hence the name

All right mate. Welcome aboard. ok2

I'm about an hour and a half down the road from you (Loch Lomand). Wait until you get into the big stuff, it's like a disease. O0

you should check out your local clubs if you are not already. :-))

Thanks for the welcomes,

Mark     I've met the guys at Bowling, and have had some great advice from them,
I've also met the sailors from Paisley club but they mainly appear to be interested in IOM,
I haven't yet been to Greenock or the club up in Glasgow in Regents Park is it?

DickD Being from N.Ireland I want to spell it LOUGH  but keep getting told off
