The model


A model of the Barmouth Lifeboat, at Chasewater in 2012. But can we find the owners? Image by Ian Morton Jones.

Oh my goodness, this is unusual – but knowing you lot, you’ll be able to help. Top bloke and long-time friend of the blog Ian Morton-Jones has been in touch to ask a very interesting question about a model boat he took a picture of at Chasewater in 2012. I know it’s not a one-off, as I’ve seen the model there myself.

Ian asked:

Hi Bob

I’ve just had a couple of messages about a picture of a model boat at Chasewater boating lake I tweeted a while ago.

I tweeted the pic on 29 sept 2012 and some people from Barmouth (where the real boat is stationed) have asked if there are any more pics, close ups etc.

I don’t know the (very skilled) model- maker, I just got chatting to him at the lake, as you do.

So the question is, do any of your readers know the model-builder?

Would they put him in touch with  @RNLI_Barmouth, home of the actual boat, please?


So, there you have it. I know there’s a model boat club at Chasewater, or at least one that  visits there – I’ve seen them exhibit at several shows. If anyone knows the owner of this fine model, please do get in touch.

You can comment here, or mail me if you prefer on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
