Re: Registrations currently disabled

Nope.....the Spammers are getting back in again and creating about 50 bogus account applications a day at the moment.... so ..... for the moment at least, I have had to disable registrations again. As soon as Neil and I are back from the National Rally, we will look into working out what is the best...

Re: Registrations currently disabled

Should now be all working again. I have had to change the spam-filter back to a 'silly' captcha image, but I don't think it can be much worse than our questions which are being worked out so quickly these days. I found a few genuine applications amongst the 1500 or so spammers, but if anyone is wait...

Registrations currently disabled

Hi Everyone, sorry, we are being hit by Spam member applications again. About 50 a day or so... and I have got about 1500 rogue registration applications to go through. This is going to take me a few evenings to get through, so for now, I have disabled new registration applications. I will get it al...

Re: Campsite at Roadford

This comes up every year and sorry, I forgot to make the situation clear. The best 10-15 camping spots have electricity and hard-standing for motorhomes. These get booked up really early, but there is plenty of other space over two nice fields close to the water for anyone wanting to camp, which are...

Welcome Back Again....

Hi Everyone, Welcome back to the Forum. We had to take the forum down due to some security worries after a Russian Hacking attempt. Now, after some sterling work by Neil yesterday and a little checking over and tinkering by me today, everything should be back working now. Hopefully everything will b...

Re: Buss and Elston info please

Great stuff!

What a lovely boat. Nothing moulded about that! Well worth spending a little time, effort and money on.

I am afraid it is unlikely that you will get much financial return after doing the work, but you will own a beautiful little boat!

Best wishes

Re: Buss and Elston info please

I think we would need to see an image or two. When you say a moulded hull of 12foot length.....made in similiar way to the Mozzie....and connections to Uffa Fox, you can really only be talking about a Uffa Fox designed Fairey 12ft Firefly. These were made in the 1940s and most would of been finished...

Re: Big Brother's collection....going under the hammer...

yes, the Austin was my ex-wife's.....gone now.

I try to keep collections down to 'one of each kind'....both boats and bikes, makes it easier to give them regular use.

With bikes I like to use them.....and must go jump on the Motoguzzi to get to work.

Big Brother's collection....going under the hammer...

Since I have already taken things well off topic..... I just thought that I havn't mentioned that my brother's 'classic' collection is being auctioned off in a couple of weeks. https://images.honestjohn.co.uk/imagecache/file/width/530/media/14071980/brightwells-andrew-bremner-collection.jpg No boats...

Re: A Cnother Cnu

No, don't think so.....he built Pau Amma III about the same time as my plastic boat in 1992.

I think that was stripped plank construction.....or did you mean another one? He may well of built more?
