    No Greasy Spoon At Acle? Broads Briefing.

    Interesting comment regarding both Acle & dredging here: http://www.thebroadsblog.co.uk/2018/05/for-many-years-now-we-have-run-guard.html

    No Greasy Spoon At Acle? Broads Briefing.

    Paul, I do have thoughts on the issue of governance. No doubts whatsoever that Dr John needs to be called to account or at least brought to heel.

    Rnli Online Shop

    I read the RNLI press release with interest. Not sure that a naked lady with a mans head printed on a mug constitutes hard-core porn but there we go! The unauthorised use of a lifeboat, yes, I do understand and support the RNLI's action on that one if only because had a 'shout' occured whilst she was at sea, and short handed, then the boat's operational capability would have been compromised.

    Bow Thrusters

    Ray, seriously, do you really need a bow thruster on a 25ft boat? Useful single handed, I'll grant you that but otherwise maybe not. A boat hook is a far cheaper alternative! Re painting the hull, I do mine when it looks tatty. I use Whithams flexible marine white, lot cheaper than International (what isn't) and it remains white. I apply it with small, foam roller, I can do a 28 footer in less than half an hour per side and it looks really good. One advantage of a roller is that if I do get scruffed then I can patch the paintwork & unlike using a brush you'll be very hard pushed to see where I have made good. Two pot is probably more durable but its far harder to maintain & touch up.

    Bad Manners

    By now, Ray, I suspect you realise that such events should not be taken too seriously! Good to see that MTB 102 has stowed her unused fend-offs, an example to us all!!

    Torpedo tubes are not unknown on The Broads!!

    Bad Manners

    It is recommended that boaters make use of hand-signals. There are times when I excecute this one with great feeling and satisfaction! Probably doesn't help but it allows me to let off steam!

    Planning Alert Oulton Broad

    Funnily enough comments on that topic have been disabled! I wonder why? You might have thought that Tingdene would have been pleased to know the truth, save them getting it wrong in the future. No helping some folk!

    Relive The Fifties At Hemsby

    Hemsby moving forward to the 1950's, that's a step in the right direction, might eventually make the 21st century!!

    Diesel Emissions.

    There are thousands of increasingly aged boats on the Broads relying on by now archaic technology, it is they that worry me.

    Diesel Emissions.

    I have to say that I don't know who or what to believe. What I do know is that on a quiet evening that the exhaust fumes that lie on the water, contained there by the reeds and river bank, can be quite unpleasent for those of us in low freeboard open boats. As far as inland waterways are concerned I really do believe that Londonlads's first comment, I think the marine industry will have to catch up, is right.
