    Old Broads Boats

    White Moth (I think) opposite St Benets in late August 1958.

    Maps (and Charts If You Like)

    The maps seem to be a redrawing of earlier ones as some of the railways would have gone by the mid 60s but the typeface for the place names seems to be Arial which wasn't introduced until 1982.

    No. 1 When You Were Born...

    First year is 8 years too late for me. First one I bought of those on the list was Nut Rocker by B Bumble and the Stingers - I really did have taste.

    Burgh Castle Moorings

    Based at Brundall so been using the Burgh mooring a couple of times a year for an early morning start to cross to the north. Ideal for me as I use the electric post for my medical equipment. I'm really going to miss this mooring, as I'm sure many others will.
  5. All this says is that the vaping is safer than smoking for the smoker because of the lack of tar and carbon monoxide. It doesn't say it is safe for anybody in the vicinity of the vaper. In fact it isn't as the vapes contain nicotine and the vaper will exhale some of this nicotine thus poisoning people in the vicinity with an unwanted drug.

    Old Broads Boats

    Dad and my younger brother Neil on Landamore's Vestella 4 at Acle in early September 1958. I think the boat passing is from Ferry boatyard, Horning. On the other bank is a Vesta. Don't know what the boat behind the Vesta is though.

    Roll Up ........roll Up

    Slightly off topic (but then I usually am). Not tried bungee but had a go on a roller coaster last year. Retired from roller coasters when I was 50 at the beginning of my heart problems. Went on a Shearings coach holiday last year which included a visit to Flambards. Went round the Victorian village (very good) but still had some time to wait for the coach and sat watching this Mad Mouse (only larger) type roller coaster. Decision time: do I go and sit on the coach with the rest of the old fogeys or do I give it a go. You're only here once and my pacemaker seems to be doing its job, plus I'm only 72 so let's do it. Strange looks from some of the youngsters in the queue, but the ride was really enjoyable (after the first time round). Was heading for the back of the queue for another go when my wife said "enoughs enough you silly old ******! Roy

    Old Broads Boats

    I think the advert started something like this: "A penny farthing a mile and you travel in style . . . the Renault Dauphine, A built in heater just couldn't be neater . . . the Renault Dauphine". etc . . . Didn't have one myself but a mate got almost 200,000 miles out of one.

    Old Broads Boats

    Takes me back to my first Broads Holiday in 58. My parents hired Vestella 4. She was moored on the other side of the shed. I think Landamores called it the Vestella shed. It is situated across the road from the main Landamores yard at the top of a dyke which I think joins the Bure just past Summercraft's yard.

    Old Broads Boats

    Stokesby in early September 81. Sorry Simon but the pubs changed to a greeny/brown (yuck). Looks like one of Newson's outside the pub and is that Salient Wings 5th boat from the right?
