I notice "model warships" are attending as traders.
As a warship nut,  I`m alway interested in anything to do with the subject, is this a new trader on the scene?

Forget Harry Ramsdens for your fish and chips, Guy....try Yorkshire Fisheries on Topping Street.......200% better and bigger portions too.

A quick google gave a list of seven plus lots more hits, most near the end of the motorway, the rest about three or four miles from the Norbreck.  Caravan or tent?

The light is and always has been a problem but other than lowering the ceiling 15ft I can,t see what can be done unless every body rigs up their models to leds.. I have been experimenting with my camera for the low light and think I may have cracked it.. :}..

Just a thought  any Mayhem , Warship And Tugs site members how about a meet up for a few minutes say 1pm maybe near MMB's stand or similar ?

How about secret handshakes or wearing a pink carnation or something... Or maybe just a badge we could print off so Mayhemmers can spot eachother, Dave.  O0

Think I'll pop along to the Norbreck for this one and have a nosey. Would be interested to see the Mountfleet range, particularly the Cruiser tug. Would be good to see speedline and Fleetscale too but I dont think either of them are attending.

I've been offline for a couple of days, hence slow response  %)


Hey, thanks Mal, never thought about using google - but will do.  :embarrassed: I'll be using a small tent but bringing lots of warm clothing  {-)

Looking forward to the show !

Can anyone please advise how much the commission is for selling items at the Boat Chandelry as I have not sold anything there previously(I do not want to bring them a considerable distance if the rates are going to be restrictive).

At the club run bring n buy, there will be a choice.  Either a fixed fee on a sliding scale based on the asking price paid up front, or a ten percent charge on what it is sold for.  The ten percent goes to the RNLI.  Its complicated this year because in the past there has been a lot of whimpering from other show organizers that "Their fixed fee is less than our ten percent", usually ignoring the fact that theirs usually goes to club or show funds, ours is a donation by our members to the RNLI.  This year, at the request of the show organizer, the choice will be yours.
There is a probability that the Shipfinder General will be there as well.

Fixed fee is still open i.e. I cannot work anything out in order to decide A) What it is going to cost me or B) To go fixed or commission basis.

Can you elaborate on the sliding scale.
