Water was pumped from the local pond into a tanker.......
....then pumped into the temporary boating pond
First excitement on show day - several generators caught fire!
John S setting up our pitch - oops forgot the tablecloths!
Scale models - but what scale? 33 foot Swordsman and 31 foot Huntsman
Beware through traffic
Sometimes a club's name was clearly visible
All the way from Somerset
or more local from Herne Bay
and around Kent
but sometimes no obvious name
and I didn't take notes - sorry
Surface Warship Association
Martin's subs on the Dover stand
Dover had a long display
in a long gazebo
Fun is what its all about..............
.............Happy Hobby Modellers
Sorry, another one I don't know
Dragster for sale on the Grays stand
More from Greys Thurrock
More affordable than the real thing?
6 berth Swordsman 'Gusty of Hamble' from Chantry Model Boat Club
and a Diva
and a Brumah
and yet more from Bluewater
Clearly their water is deeper than at Crowborough
I asked the sailor what boat it was - no reply!
The flying field
One of the second-hand sales areas
Keep on truckin'
Have a go
The bring and buy section
with just a few boats
Not everything was in miniature
and some kits bigger than others
Some not kits at all
KMFM took pictures
They even took one of Richard wearing deely boppers!
Fine sailing on the pond
a footy found it a bit too bumpy
The yellow Micro Magic sailed much better
.....to jet skis!
At the end of the day Jean had the pond to herself
Many thanks to those who organised the boating section and commentated at the pond
