"Brutus" and "Ellie" at Etherow

Over the past few months our Bob Abell of Great Eastern fame, has teamed up with Paul Thomason of the Model Boats magazine forum and with Paul designing the boats and Bob building them to check out the correctness of the plans before Paul was ready to sell them for charity, today was the crunch time with Bob and myself as one one mate and video recorder. we have the maiden voyage of both boats "Brutus" and "Ellie" 
"Ellie" Vintage Broads Cruiser

Brutus with Bob ready for the first run. You will notice I provided the champers for the launch.





Here is the video of the "Brutus"


The "Ellie" vintage broads cruiser 



I'm sure Bob has had a good time with these projects, I certainly have watching their progress and today's outing at the lake, hope you like the video's, they are both on YouTube  to watch at anytime.

Don't forget it's our return to Lyme Park very shortly, hope you have got your boats all dusted down and spruced up for showing. You can check out the Exhibition Sec's notes in the tabs at the top.

Returning after a long absence this should be a great day out to sail on both the Mill Pond lake and the Garden lake behind the hall.

Thats all folks, another good day at the lake.
