The Sea Isn't For Sissies.

A few pictures and a video to show why your fish and chips cost so much these days



Here are some more pictures taken from the air.


They say even Nelson was seasick at times, I can see why.

  1. Well an excellent posting but talking about seasick have you read Bob Abell's superb article in Model Boats this month? What a talent and what an ambassador for the club!

  2. Thank you chaps, for those very kind words!

    Actually, I was more or less Press Ganged into it!
    When the request, for my Great Eastern involvement came from the BBC Coast research team.....How could I refuse such a prestigeous opportunity?......Not a chance!
    So for the next six months or so, it was just plain old hard graft, but still very interesting and I was enthralled by the efforts of the Victorian seamen and engineers, laying the Atlantic cables. Take a look at my epic story in the ModelBoats forum, for further details
    After the filming was over, I was quite brassed off with it all!
    Then the request came from ModelBoats Magazine for the story!
    So it was, all hands to the pumps, once again!
    I was highly delighted with the subsequent magazine coverage and I`m now looking forward, with some trepidation, to the finished TV programme
