Support

 

Our Vice President and resident shipwright Joe Zaragoza and James Dawes have a stall each Sunday where members can arrange repairs or modifications, purchase new radio gear or parts, or even purchase a new or second-hand model. Joe also runs a BBQ for members at the end of the month.

 

Woollen pullovers have also been added to our stock.
