Bob's boat, 25th April 2015.

Club boat 2.

I've been informed that the No 2 Club Boat has been refurbished by the Vice Commodore, no pictures but I'm sure it will be a nice job done.
I was told it was the usual type Sharp at one end, Blunt at the other!.

If you want a more interesting read why not go to Bob Abell's Controversial build at the Model Boat Magazine website.
Click here
With 45.000 views and 1550 replies you will see that Bob's boat scratch built from plans by Paul Thomason has a unique motor setup which I was very pleased to help him with his water trials in his garden with his nice new pool.

All set up with desk and watt meter

Trials went well, just as well as I dropped the watt meter into the water unplugging it!.

To see more of the trials Bob and I did you will have to click above and read for yourself.
Alright I will give you a taste with the video we took on the day.

                  

Now you can see what's controversial about it, not the build but the fact its got 4 x 850v motors  in Bob's " Abell configuration". As you can read there was lots of conversation on the forum of Model Boats magazine, and if nothing else it's helped to put our Club on the map, if anyone was in any doubt before.
So this is the second time Bob's put us in the news in a very big way, as you must know by now his Appearance on the "Coast" program on BBC was a great plug for us!.
Well that's all for now.
