The model boat club at Saltwell invited their Tynemouth colleagues over for the day, so there was a good turn out of models this Sunday. The two boats that caught my attention were both based upon local prototypes.
A small fishing boat based upon a coble style hull, I presume that the registration indicates a North Shields based vessel.
Charles Parsons' famous Turbinia, the prototype of which resides in Newcastle's Discovery museum.
Men having fun.
