Is this the folded knee club{-) ...my Orthopedic Surgeon [post hip replacement] said....3 tings Derek [he is Chinese]


Number 1 - never cross your knees - it places undue stress between the new ball & socket :((
Number 2 - never fall down - you could pop the titanium ball from the plastic socket {:-{
Number 3 - never fall down - you could smash the titanium spike out of the bone where it was inserted [into femur] >:-o


No's 2 & 3 I suspect would be a little painful....& I have never crossed my legs in the past 70 ++ something years

Well I was going to run the Seaducer 38 in the demo tomorrow, unfortunately itís developed a flat spot on one of the bearings so thatís off - thankfully no damage whatsoever so Iím buying a lottery ticket and bringing something else.


Enjoy this short of our test run  :-))

Only a minor setback Andy  <*< 


No knowledge of these builds??... are the bearings conventional full stainless ZZ ballraces?...
My experience outside of model application or use, has been in a requirement of a total non-magnetic signature and a speed limit set by the limit of hardness that can be attained with use of the 316 stainless balls

The engine in question is a CMB 45 V5, which has a steel bearing at the flywheel with a polyamide retainer, an internal larger bearing with a steel retainer and needle rollers in the big end of the rod. Fairly convinced it was the large bearing that developed the flat spot.


Itís done incredibly well to be honest, I bought it three years ago and Iíve probably run that boat more than all my others, this is the first time itís needed a bearing change.

Thank you Martin and organisers

I had a brilliant day today,  I cannot believe it is 8 years since I had been there, and it has grown so big but still very enjoyable.
Roll on next year, I will do more than dust off my club 500 and the Pepsi springer will return.

My wife and I had a wonderful day, it being only our second time at this event. It was good to catch up with those we met last year and to make new acquaintances.


Thanks to all involved who made this day go so smoothly.

wow what a great show. Mayhem has grown a lot since the last show. At one time I counted 26 boats on the water at the same time.
Big thanks to all the orginsers and Martine for a great show.

A really, really good weekend!

Fantastic weather both days .... saw a couple of 'lobsters' walking back to their cars yesterday... %)
Huge turnout yesterday 200-300 boaters & a very high footfall from the public all day.

Huge debt of gratitude to the Wicksteed Model Boat Club for inviting us again this year, thank you.
Special thanks to Nick, Steve, Nigel for slave driving all the workers to get everything done, thank you.
 the lake, path and surrounding areas look great, as always.
Talking of the path, special thanks goes out to Ivan that Sxxx Shovelled all weekend clearing behind all the malevolent geese,
 ( that couldn't understand the large numbers of people but no free bread )!
SteamBoatPhil, Klunk, Andy, lady Poppy .... .... Rock Stars in the model boat world!  💖💖💖
Thanks to Jag ( Palaform Hovercraft ) for the deadlock hovercraft for Gina.
The Hovercraft boys had a GREAT weekend and was always on the water before anyone could find their ear defenders on!  {-)
Thanks for everyone that came, lovely to see you all.
Thank you too if you were silly enough to let me have a good with your boats... didn't get one caught to any netting this year, a first!
Thank you if you gave me the time of day and explained something to me or showed me how your boat works.

Very pleased that everything went OK and you had great weather. Unfortunately Mayhem always seems to overlap with our usual family holiday so I missed it once more.

Just to say a big 'thank you' to the Wicksteed Model Boat Club and to all of the organisers.  Yesterday was my first visit to Wicksteed and I had a brilliant day.  Fantastic venue, lots of clubs, everyone having fun and happy to chat - well worth the 270 mile round trip from Somerset!
Best wishes,
Richard

I'm sure I'll recover from the weekend soon...
Firstly a massive thank you to Nick for organising the thing - and letting Pete, Phil and myself pretend that we were being helpful in running it ;)
Thanks to Martin, Ruth and Gina for everything they do
Thanks to the Wicksteed club for letting us make a mess of their lake
Most importantly, thanks to everyone who turned up. It's hard to believe just how enormous this thing is getting now, at 10:30am on Saturday I counted 140 modellers lakeside, by lunchtime it was impossible to count how many people there were.
Here's to next year  :-))
