excellent day 1. not as busy as i would have expected. Slec seemed to be doing a roaring trade in flat pack boats. great lunch with Martin. we had salad and Martin had pics to prove it.....ok he took pics of salad and had pie, while i had bbq chicken.
not so many traders this year, but great to see some stalwarts still going. Nice to see Gerome and Sue still going, will they ever retire?
some great looking models on display abd Steamboat Phil has relaxed enough to drink a tea I bought him. Although he did catch Nick and Myself hiding behind his tables. lets see what Sunday brings

Cracking day yesterday, the orange glow from the light almost takes 20 years off Bob(Shipmate60)  {-) {-) ;D

Just need a great show in the south to attend and my yearly trips out will be looking rather good in the diary.

It would take more than an orange glow to take 20 years off Shipmat60 %% %% %%


Looks like you had a good show , any photos?

That terrible umbrella seems to take good photos.  :kiss:


Your report on the car park was a bit previous. I arrived at 1020ish and was directed to park right next to a 2" deep puddle. Squelched all the rest of the day,  >>:-(


Spent too much money but what else would I do with it but spend it.  :-))

I enjoyed this year although the knees and ankles don't like that concrete floor too much.  Some real nice boats on the stands and was impressed with the Polish lads, I hope we'll see them at more shows.

Great show, spoke to lot of very interesting people, shook hands with many friends old and new, lots of laughs, great lunches ( sorry we missed Colin, my fault... )  lots of new models I hadn't seen before, epic rain, many good laughs, lots of stories, flat pack boats & wood popular this year, remembrance Sunday, keep on trucking, Surface Warship Association's super cake, underwater drone, worlds worst umbrella, super fast electric hydros, Jack Snary & The Royal Spithead review, Matchstick HMS Belfast, Tony Judd & his Plymouth Hooker! The giant Orca boat with realistic Roy Scheider & Robert Shaw - Mayhem's 'Boat of the Show'.... more as I remember...  O0

Edit, Klunk, Nick, Steve, Phil, Tony, Iain,  Jerome and Sue, Richard Eels, John, Steve, Paul, Martin, Rex & everyone else who asked why I was carrying an umbrella handle about!

A huge thank you to all those that contributed to the demonstrations on the pool. Having the dock in position was very popular (thanks John) and nearly everyone tried to bring their boats into harbour. Even the young visitors in the 'Childrens Sessions' enjoyed trying to get the small lifeboats into the dock. Many thanks to the Surface Warship Association folks for all their help in looking after all the kids.
As pool master and commentator it would not be possible to do what we do without all the co-operation that goes on behind the scenes. Well done everyone involved.
Great to meet up with friends in the hobby from all over the country and have a 'chin wag'!
Many thanks  :-)) Steve Dean - Pool Master

I went on Saturday and enjoyed the show very much although not the return trip in heavy rain punctuated by a 1 hour stop on the M40 due to an accident which put me onto the horror of the M25 in mist and rain at 5pm!

Thanks to everyone concerned for all the effort put in to make the trip worthwhile. It's a shame, for various reasons, that we only have around half the traders that attended just a few years back but those who were there seemed to be doing OK. I saw quite a few of the distinctive SLEC flat pack kits being carried off. I bought a few bits myself including some of that lovely 0.4mm (1/64) birch ply plus some hardwood stripwood from SLEC.

Does anyone know if there was a best club stand award and if so, who got it?
