New guy saying hello.
« on: October 01, 2016, 09:44:23 AM »

Hi I'm John.

I'm from near Alfreton, Derbyshire.

I have been into RC vehicles for over 25 years.

I've custom built trucks, scale 4x4's, crawlers, drifters, etc...

Most recently I have been a sponsored driver in 1/8 IC truggy racing.

I am now looking for a bit steadier pace, and would like to get a sailboat, and a scale tug, and possibly also a narrow boat.

If anyone is local to me I would be interested to hear where you sail, and where to go locally.

Sorry, I've added it now. I'm only 1/2 mile away from Alfreton.

Welcome to the forum John.

I like the idea of a Narrow boat. I always wondered if anyone has dug a realistic miniature canal in their garden to sail Narrow boats? I reckon it wouldn't be difficult to build and operate locks.

I look forward to seeing your projects.

  Yes , there is a chap in the USA has done a lock system in his back yard.  Do a search on RCGroups.com   He updates it from time to time.  Umi will know, she checks Mayhem frequently.
