Same number of errors, just at those speeds more consequences. :'(

Half a second of not concentrating is all it takes.  :embarrassed:

My mistake on wanting to build a model boat was finding a web site called modelboatmayhem.co.uk which had a nice little article in it on how easy it is to build a clyde puffer. Eighteen months on still not finished. ;D ;D ;D ;D
 Martin do you want to build another one ??? ???

plus some of us really dont care,you get like that when you race omra

Sorry Kurt - but this forum is read by many and while I don't really care if you have a go at your mates, I strongly object to your comment regarding  OMRA.
Some of us DO CARE - that's why we have rules!  They are not made by petty officials but are made by the OMRA members themselves to try and run safely and enjoyably.  We try NOT to lose venues by having noisy boats or driving them in a 'casual' (stupid) manner.
Yes, there will be the odd time in a race when another boat spins out straight in front of you, which you may hit.  That's one of the difficulties of having uncontrollable waves.  However, if you try to foresee these, and you've got a good 'spotter', you will avoid leaving with a bag of broken boat bits at the end of the day.
You build a good boat and will undoubtedly do well with it.  You're information has been valuable to others and I agree with much of what you say.
Don't spoil it by writing (even in jest) without thinking.

 hi danny,everything here is said in jest,and when i said about not caring in omra,i ment about your boat getting damaged.i use to care about my boats and had somebody of done to my boat what happened to me at brynbach  at my local lake wild horses would not of stopped me putting that said person in the lake,no matter how it happened,but as these things do happen on omra i try not to care about my boat to much,that way if and when something does happen,i can just brush it of as part of racing,and not end up putting somebody where they really dont want to be becouse i have just seen my pride and joy bashed.,and end up out of omra,so you see,it is in my opinion that i dont care,i love omra,i enjoy the racing,meeting up with everyone and have even got another 2 new members to join becouse of what i have said about OMRA,i travel more than most to do 1/2 hour race,and have a good day,i agree that poeple do care in omra,we all do,i do,and all the rules are good,apart from half hour races,should be 2x 20 minute races,.but thats another subject,so in reply to you mate,i care about OMRA,just not to much about my boat,i hope we are now clear on the subject ,oh,and to everyone else OMRA is a really good thing for racing ic powered boats,so dont be put off becouse of my opinion,,,,,,,,,,,,,,kurt

Kurt really wasnt having a so called dig at his mates it was a pre meditated thing from when we were at the lake on sunday and he also told us to expect the worst if someone hits you or you hit someone and to bite your lip, shake hands and hope it doesnt happen for a long while again............Pete

Just to show that when you're World Champion - the mistakes get BIGGER  :o
It happens to us all (sometime or other) and not just OMRA either  ;D

Not mine, I'm glad to say Dicky!  My last swipe at a rescue boat was Coventry in 1987 - without putting a hole in it though!
Just after that, I started wearing glasses ::) ::)
Hitting rescue boats (quite rightly) is a cardinal sin and gets you chucked straight off the water.

The bloke in the picture is the famous Dave Marles who is current World Champ for something or other fast. ;D
