Welcome guys.
It's good to see members including their children too, and hopefully encouraging a new generation into the fold.......my grandad encouraged( if that's the word as I needed no encouragement at all) me to my first scratch build when I was 8 years old............I'm now 61 and have never ( apart from classic cars and bikes...and a little fishing in my young days) strayed from model boat building.............it's a bug that I can't get rid of, nor do I want to..........so, as they say, Happy trails, and enjoy your building and sailing.............and a nice place to sail to........Herne Bay.....was down there this spring, and enjoyed it very much.

neil..
