We'll be setting up our own hidden security cameras.

Makes me Wonder now if we need to have overnight security down at the lake from Friday/Sat Night just to maek sure hte gazeebos etc are safe.
 
I know it is a hassle BUT there are enough of us staying over to do it...say 2 hourly shifts

Obviously WPMBC can not authorise the use of torture but we as individuals however... Water boarding works we've been told but we don't condone it!  :}

And maybe (if she's in a good mood) Adastral the RAF Strath class Trawler


And of course the penguin springer, watch out Stavros and Phil when you're setting up the straight running course! :D

Hopefully bringing Alice Upjohn with new motors fitted that may give a little more power and combined with Action's mixer, a reduced turning circle. The maiden outing was a bit dissapointing to say the least.  Will also bring Wavemaster, my latest build, for her maiden voyage.
                  Should anyone that may see them sailing have any ideas, advice or assistance to offer for either rectification or improvement,  please don't hesitate to approach with same  - you'd be most welcome, after all, it's one of the reasons for joining Mayhem!    Regards, Tony. :-))

Well panic in the steam house....all day in the workshop with steamboatapprentice working on her boats, me just trying to get all the bits together, tool boxes, petrol, matches.......oh and the odd steam boat......also found a lot of this new wireless control stuff.....wots that all about then. {:-{
Now if only I could find all the 9.6v packs I seem to have lost might give me a chance of running more than one boat.....all hail the weekend (and that doesn't mean rain type stuff)
We will be getting there Thursday just to make sure I get a good view  O0 O0
