    loved her in Dibley and in Notting Hill- such great comedy moments.
  8. The Broads Is Not A National Park!

    If anyone wants to venture up the Cut, sometimes the entrance from the Mere can be a little shallow, I always approach diagonally from the middle of the Mere and leave in the same way-from the middle of the exit aiming across the Mere. I know it all sounds like a lot of bother but those who know about these things talk about the wildlife.
  9. Single Parent Hiring Boats

    First yes you can call me Phil thanks, You cut your quotation a bit short to omit the word "can be used.........." It was speculation that risk assessment advises .........., is an acceptable reason for allowing or not, something in the same way that "computer says no" is.

So I replaced it with this pair which doubles as a seat I paid £16 so £10 is a good price. We use it more on wild moorings since getting the dog and having to get off the boat with him.
  11. Nbn Quiz Night

    Don't know where you got 1 and a half from wyndham you scored 3. The lowest score was 2 and it was not you.
  12. The customer requested it Ma'am . John said he wanted blue when asked.i just follow orders lol
  13. Hi, If this is not appropriate please remove, but I know wet shed moorings are rare. We have a couple available from the end of March at our yard in Beccles. Each Bay is approximately 40 feet by 14 feet, the cost is £2850 per annum including VAT. Would suit a classic wooden or wooden top boat. Contact details at www.hippersons.co.uk Thanks, Simon
  14. Swing Bridges

    Any oil on the bridge will be flushed into the river and the operators that "hosed" the bridge would be liable for prosecution by the EA/BA for knowingly contaminating the river. In the case of rain water, who can the EA/BA hold responsible?

  16. Robins Platter

    Oh wow, the platter is lovely, I’m sure it will be a brilliant addition to Indy. Am also loving the combined wood/resin- they are simply stunning
  17. My Day

    FT. up to £900 depending on scale/quality. If anyone wants a display model, you buy the kit and I will make it FOC. This is a kit I adapted to a replica of Zimbi IV. And the real one
  18. Sourcing Fabric

    I suspect they may send over a sample. If not as I say give me a shout and I can get one sent over :)
  19. Are You Average?

    This is one time I'm glad to be below average, hardly ever text, prefer to call. When I first got a mobile it was only switched on when I needed to make a call, didn't want to be contacted by anyone, anytime. That said, now I wouldn't be without mine, phones became smart, well they're mini computers really. In one little device we have a camera, music player, internet radio, tv, sat nav. Damn useful things.
  20. Shoals Of Herring

    Think I'll stay on dry land thank you after watching that. Oh boy did they have a hard life. Shame some of them dont have the same experience today, well lets face it they wouldnt last a day, be off to the solicitors to shout ' I ve been abused'. What do they call these people ' snowflakes' speaking of which I hope you have your shovels ready.
  21. Bridge Indicator Maintenance

    for instance have you spotted a lot of the marthams cruisers are only 9 foot wide compared to the standard, starting as they do from the wrong side of 'that' bridge- one of the reasons I hired jayne for the spring meet, means I can cruise above the bridge on the days after the meet.
  22. Broads Hotel

    The EDp has changed It's story, and Included drawings... http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/politics/expansion-plans-at-roys-of-wroxham-to-include-cafe-restaurant-plus-more-car-parking-spaces-approved-by-north-norfolk-councillors-1-5404980
  23. Mooring Technique

    In the Med, that's nearly how we do it. Nearly all marinas are stern on so we drop the anchor, keep that line tight as we motor back ready to pick up the lazy lines for the stern. Believe me the cross winds are quite something but the bow is steady and from personal experience at eccles, that is how I do it.
  24. Late To The Party

    Better late than never.....
  25. Haven't come across that recently, thank goodness. I think the police had a crackdown. We quite often had mounted police clip-clopping through our neighbourhood, though I haven't spotted any within the last year or so. A bit different from the usual bobby on the beat! Helen
  26. Top Marks To Bailey & Stone

    I recommend them too excellent people to deal with and fairly priced
