  1. His And Hers Boat Reviews?

    What an excellent idea, Helen. As some of the above posters may have hinted I would think that the heads would come high on any ladies list!
  2. Bridge Indicator Maintenance

    Unreadable and unacceptable, Alan, in this H&S era. Perhaps similar letters directly to the BA, Jeff, and see the results of such?
  3. Swing Bridges

    It's good to see John Packman getting some plaudits. Fighting such a monolith as Network Rail cannot be an easy task, even for the Broads Authority with legislation on our side.
  4. Broads Toll

    I think that you'll get a wee bit more in the Spring one, Bill. It's going to be the largest we've ever had!
  5. Flying Bathtub

    They never do seem to pay more than lip service to EU rules though, do they? (Our aviation rules follow European JARs)
  6. Recycling

    Only some, Alan? Out in rural West Norfolk we've seen quite a reduction in fly tipping in the last few years.......... I shall have to programme the NCC clearup department into my mobile anytime soon.
  7. Mooring Technique

    It certainly is the problem with mooring a fwd steer bathtub, isn't it? Rod, on Sally B, an Alpha 35 fwd steer, used to open his roof and stand on his seat. He then used his bow thruster paddle with his foot and throttle with his hand... amazing and it worked to the wonder of onlookers!
  8. Summer/autumn Gathering August 2018

    John & Mary-Jane, Sat/Sun, car, boat or motor home!
  9. Flying Bathtub

    It would do that, Alan... If its lift failed when overhead the bridge there wouldn't be a problem anymore!
  10. Shed/boatshed/watershed

    Great news, thanks, guys. We're thinking of hiring one of NBD's apartments in September and I remember when the Shed was in its prime!
  11. Summer/autumn Gathering August 2018

    Bump this topic.
  12. Birthday Trip

    Great idea, David. I just looked at that and saw that they do one for double glazing up to 15mm.
  13. Broads Toll

    Back to original thread topic and mine's just come in (if I was going to renew it). 12p short of £490..... for a 35ft boat
  14. Birthday Trip

    WOW, Howard gets treats as well as beer, Delilah?
  15. Broads Toll

    I doubt that you'd complain, Alan, because even paying for the toll, insurance, maintenance (I did a lot myself as you do) and the BIG cost, marina moorings I still had change from £3000.. not a lot but enough for the odd replacement whatsit. Considering we'd get at least 10 weeks a year that's not too bad, really.
