  1. 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 :)
  2. Robins Platter

    Very cool.. :)
  3. Sourcing Fabric

    Good spot :) If Ross fabrics won't talk to you as I believe they may only be a wholesale provider. Trimnet do have an account with them so I can help to supply. Drop me an email: alan@trimnet.co.uk

    What was that about members not arguing between themselves...

  6. Socrates, it's a big shame to think anyone would think any less of a classic broads woody like yours.. anyone who has the courage and skills to keep these timber boats going deserve MBE's if you ask me. I'm sure if you make the event there will lots of other members whom will be all over your lovely boat :) We should really try to attend this year, although my calendar is all over the place and I know Orca needs to come out for a check up and some little bits of work so I'm not sure. If we are passing we will at least drop in for a short time.. if anyone wants any trimming work doing that may help me make the time with work too ;)
  7. Where Did The Love Affair Begin?

    It started seeing a Hoseasons catalogue when I was a kid, mum was too much of a wimp to let us holiday when we was young, something about us failing in (or her failing in) So it was only when I was 18 and could book my own holiday, me and dave got the coach up from london, arrived in a busy Norwich bus station some 10 hours later (or it felt that), eventually we found the train station and walked down the lane to Silvercraft in Brundall. The yard looked horrified! although so did we, the boat looked new and massive (Silver Melody), after a 2 second trip on the river (To be honest the older chap taught me loads, most of which I still use even now) we headed down to reedham! A week later we returned the boat floating in many pieces and loads of paint missing and the rest is history. (We now live afloat, have Orca in Norfolk and I now work in the industry).
  8. Lol at this rate you may be in luck! If you want to drop me an email with your sizes: alan@trimnet.co.uk I can see what I can offer you, Our single cushion prices do start from as little as an hours labour depending on what type of finish you are looking for.
  9. Independence - Updates | Maintenance & Care

    I hate to break it to you Robin, but shopping for all that nice screen stuff will be like a walk in the park until you see my estimate!! but best bit is unlike flashy pretty screens, trimming stuff add's to value of the boat and looks pretty so it's an easier buy. You need to come in look at our showroom and I can show you all the newest pretty fabrics, we stock and sell all what the big brands use.
