Right then just got off the phone with no other than our missing member who is enjoying MARRIED lifew yes you guessed it none other than Steam Boat Phil.................YES YES YES He is ALIVE and raring to go.
 
He defo will be there arriving on thursday.......complete with the Gazeebo and the most IMPORTANT item the TEA URN...and before anyone asks YES he is bringing the PA system so STOP PANICING Martin ALL IS WELL.
 
Unfortuantly one person that will not be there is Steamboat Apprentice AKA ....Mrs Abbott ..........she is NOT a happy bunny,she has to go to a family Gathering in Germany that weekend .............I suppose the good news for Phil is that he wont be SHOWN UP at straight running...........SO HE THINKS........Now where did I put YELLOW PERIL the non straight running flying hooligan thingy HE HE HE HE........HTML watch out Stav has a cunning plan  :} :}
 
All boat ready to go,Im ready to go so is Kelly and Catherine....same can not be said at the Mo for the caravan,got to source a wheel bearing for it............and it will  be ready

Well lads itsd been awhile. what with a few large projects going on (sadly none involving boats) and of course marrying the competion, time has sped by, not enough model boating has been going on.....still that is about to change.
So I hope you are all well out there in Mayhem land and are looking forward to a fun (and dare I say a sunny) weekend. I will once again be setting fire to a boat and sending it up the lake for our Stav to catch, well it gives us all a bit of a laugh....also going to bring one of them wireless controlled boats.....so beware.
As stav has said I will be bringing the most important thing for all us boaters..... the tea urn......but sadly not the wife.....don't tell her but I will be bringing her boat......well that way I might have a chance  {-) {-)

Lads the good news is no longer can you call me "Gums" and am ready to munch into the carbon blob with a 5000 year half life that is Stavs cooking.........or was that a table  {-) {-) {-)
 
Have purchased fresh petrol ( may use some in the boat as well).
Cleaned the generator, polished the tea urn.......and stacked up the boats.....just pack the sun tan cream and I'm ready.
I will be arriving at Wickseteed to meet up with the Stav-ettes on the Thursday, check the water, the beer, and see if these are real boating teef.... %)

Hello oh gummy one!


It's good to hear from you again Phil, obviously you're working too hard!


Look forward to see you at Wickies again with your straight runners and your strange wireless devices {-)
Don't forget to put your waders on this year before you enter the lake, not joining the wet right leg club again :}
