Marine Modelers of New England is a low-key club based in the greater Boston area. The thirty year old organization meets monthly, usually pond-side to sail their model boats, when the weather allows it. Their meetings are informal, with little time spent on business, and lots of time displaying models, talking about RC boats, and listening to guest speakers. There is usually an interesting array of models at our gatherings displayed by members and guests.


Accessible to persons with disabilities
