Clear Horizon
« on: May 05, 2010, 10:31:07 AM »

Hi Guys,donuts here,Whats happening out there?????.No posts since 29th of April,are you all under depth charge attack or rigged for silent running
On a different note,I am currently off work due to sickness and feeling VERY bored so i dug out the old R.C Submariner D.V.D
I have not seen many posts about this and would like to know what all of you Sundodgers out there  think about it
I helped to make the D.V.D and think that in some places it could more informative.(Am I being too critical)

Gentlemen, the floor is yours !!!!!!

I guess Herr Admiral is on about the Traplet Publications one, Martin...the one starring the one and only Oberliutenant Paul Cook, esq...well known model submariner of this parish and boss of the AMS.

I haven't seen the DVD so I can't really comment. Perhaps most of the others reading the post are in same boat (no pun intended).

Traplett told me that it was selling like hot cakes,WHO TO !!!

Confused ! I will have to take a star shot and see where I am

Perhaps the warship boys have bought it so they can recognise a sub and avoid us,must dig out the homing fish

Not to go off-topic but...I acquired a fascinating book by accident today about the surrender of the U-boat fleet at the end of WWII. It was the local association here in the north of Scotland that first caught my eye.  "The Grey Wolves of Eriboll" by David M Hird. ISBN 978-1-904445-32-6.  Published last year, 2010 by Whittles of Dunbeath, Caithness. KW6 6EY. Their website also has a goodly selection of nautical books listed, including lighthouses. www.whittlespublishing.com    Is there a section on Mayhem for "recommended books" ? {:-{ oh and videos :embarrassed:

Video is as current today as it ever was, as it's essentially electronic capture of moving images, as opposed to film which is a chemical process. Video tape is rapidly becoming an obsolete technology with memory cards and disc media replacing fragile cassettes.

The terms are gradually becoming blurred, with talk of digital film etc.

Hi,
    First time I watched it I felt that there could have been more detail for the beginner as i knew little about subs.
. Second look 2 months later , when I was a bit more into subs, I felt it was much better and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Still watch it which is more than  can be said for many of my DVDs. Bill

Definately going ga ga, watched the D.V.D again last night and at the end tried looking for the rewind button on the remote
there may be some pills available somewhere,I will ask my nurse for help
Is anyone going to the naval and military day at Norwich (may 8th) the boom will split the pond and surface vessels will be confined to shallow water,which is, by the way,closer to the toilets.this will help the war canoe skippers no end while we perishers cruise silently and conduct missile drills
 One ping only please vassily !!

Hi Donuts,

What will the difference between the May and September Sub days?

(I started a thread for these events (See Norwich Model Sub Days see list) for what is:

"Probably the best model boat pond in the World!")

What was the logic behind dispensing with the National submarine day in August?

This was a popular event, which despite not always being blessed with the best of weather was well attended and filled a blank calendar slot for UK submariners, therefore I'm somewhat perplexed as to why it's been nixed.

Hi Guys
To put it simply,new chairman,new ideas.He has decided to do naval and military days as a themed event
I had something to say about this,considering S.W.A and T.F. 72 showed support by staying away
The Pond will however be separated by our floating boomwith the targets being confined to the shallow or clubhouse end
this will only give them a sailing area of 220 x 85 ft.We can however sail under the boom and line up a tasty target or two
Yes Norwich is a pain to get to which is probably the main factor for the skimmers.Is it incontinence or inconvenience ??
Car parking at the side of the pond means even the largest sub or target can be sailed easily
If only a 10 ft L.A. could turn up!!!Dream on A D
The chairman will review the support given by each discipline and the smallest turnout will lose out next year
So get behind these two days this year and safeguard our sub events
