    Forum Meet At Salhouse 2018

    At least it is only misty and it sounds like a good time was had by all. More than mist up here on the NE corner of Norfolk. This is the current view from The Rocket House Cafe on top of The Lifeboat Museum at Cromer. Looking towards the Pier. A full blown "Haar" It is just 5C now. Due to clear about 1100, but will only be about 10C on coast even in the sun that is forecast for later.
  9. I suppose you are basking in sunshine. Here on the coast a cold Haar is rolling in from The North Sea, cliff top has gone from view as I do my pans.h

    Bad Manners

    My method was to stay behind a while and then shout to the helm " Could you please make your intentions known"

    He must be one on the North Norfolk One Speeders as my late wife would call them. 39mph in a 60, a 50, a 40, a 30 and even in a 20mph school zone. There are loads of them up here, unbelievable.

    Diesel Emissions.

    I think I read some time ago that ships, someting like two thirds were fitting scrubbers so they could continue to use cheap high sulpur fuels. I suppose short ferry crossings make enough to use expensive low sulphur oil.

    But some cars are £2K dearer than petrol so you need to be doing mileage to get your money back. Personally I do about 8K per annum so I buy the car I like, petrol driven and don't even look what it does to the gallon. If you are doing a 300 mile round trip to your boat every weekend then oil will save you a lot of money. For the last fews years I drove 4x4 but my last two cars have been plain fwd. My house can be bad to get out in snow but I now use Michelin Snow Socks, fitted and unfitted in 3 or 4 minutes they are brilliant. I also put Michelin Cross Climate on when my original tyres need replacing.
