Dave Wooley aka Bowwave.
« on: January 27, 2017, 12:20:15 PM »

Dave Wooley has been admitted to hospital and is undergoing major surgery as I write.  Dave has been involved in the model boat scene for many years initially in fast electrics, were he was World champion in his class and, for the last twenty five years, with scale modelling mostly warships. He also has a long running column in Model Boats magazine.  This is quite apart from being one of the instigators of shows such as those held at Ellesmere Port

I'm sure that we all wish him well and a speedy recovery. In the meantime,  please do not contact his family or hospital over this. If you wish to send him messages please send them through me, and I will see that they are passed on to him.

I will post further reports as and when I have them.
