My interests
« on: October 21, 2012, 12:26:11 PM »

My interests include model engineering, I have made 2 boilers and experimented with there gas burners. A Westbury diagonal paddle engine and an oscillator of my own design. I am also building a 1" scale traction engine. I have made 8 model boats since retiring, all but one from my own plans. Two Bristol Channel pilot cutters, two paddle steamers ( with steam power),a sailing trawler, a west country trading schooner and two static models now in the local museum. O! I forgot a steam coaster ( electric powered). I also play bowls being captain of our club for 3 years now ( club champion last year). I am pit crew for my son who races motor bikes, motocross and enduro. How did I fined time to go to work???

Sailing trawler Albatross LT546. Built Teignmouth 1877 ( I live there now). Run down and sunk 25th August 1897, 25 miles off Lowestoft her home port.
The model sailing in a fores 7 gale reefed right down 2006 sank soon after photo taken. Sailing later in a summer breeze. Looking along the deck. There's more if anyone wants.

Thank you both, hadn't you seen them before Derek? Must have taken them with a previous camera, one I dropped in Roma (Colosseum), the next dropped in the Oxford canal ( I fell in the lock off the barge), the last squashed by grandsons. Now you know why the boss is reluctant to let me have another. GEOFF
