  1. Past hour
  2. Crime and punishment, a conundrum that's always existed and to some extent always will. I think the work you have done is highly commendable, the sort of thing that makes a real difference to individuals and as a result society at large. I agree that help should be always available and I also recognise that there will always be some that can't or won't be helped and those are the one's that society needs protection from.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Barnes brinkcraft (nbs) list them as new builds
  5. I'm always paying attention Mr Nog, and I always know who I'm talking to
  6. Glad I’ve got a forward steer cruiser booked for March then!
  7. Having just spent the last 5 years living in Switzerland at 2000ft elevation above the beautiful city of Bern, I can honestly say that whatever this season is supposed to be it's great. We were used to minus 17 in November through to March snow almost every week and freezing winds and no rain. After moving to Suffolk I equipped the new piece of German engineering with high quality winter tyres as the grip in the snow in CH with the Japanese Engineering was great, the grip here in the low temperature rain was and is simply amazing, I love it. Tyres stored and rotated every month until I need them and the winter ones the same in the summer. I had forgotten how mild UK winters were, even for a child of the Northwest. Suffolk is great if a tad wet. Bring on the spring you're on about Tim I cant wait. Malanka beckons. See you all soon at the spring meet. M&F
  8. Sthil now do an excellent range of battery kit which are fine for part day jobs and may save the hassle of genny & cables https://www.stihl.co.uk/STIHL-Products/080087/STIHL-Cordless-Power-Systems.aspx Been around for 3-4 years now so well tried & tested - I have used the blower & it runs for over 2 hours without loosing power

  10. You are not yet fully into your S10 then!
  11. Last week
  12. Alternatively I will find a nice fabric then get Griff to re-upholster Broad Ambition to match the model. Many a true word said in jest. Hang fire on the fabric as we are indeed planning to recover the present soft furnishings in the wheelhouse. Out of necessity as they are worn through in places. Hope to get this done this year Griff
  13. Hopefully, i`l be there for the start this time.
  14. we had Premier Gem, Modern Gem (renamed Eastern Gem) and Top gems, we also had the shorter versions we named 'Crusader" i think more than one 40 came from Loch Lomond, along with the the Crusaders,
  15. they were in the hidden cave just around the curve.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vLhcg_FU9g

  18. Does ‘barricaded’ count as defence?
  19. I think that you are entirely right on that but I am mindful of a conversation between myself, JP & Trudi Wakelin on our personal aspirations for the Share Marshes. Surprisingly, to some maybe, we were in broad agreement and today we see many of those shared thoughts reaching fruition, thanks to the SWT. One of those thoughts was that either a round the island trip on such as the BA's Electric Eel at How Hill could be developed or that a 'walk & ride' circular trip could be created. The 'walk' being to or from the nature reserve with a boat trip to complete the journey. It could really be a worthwhile and popular attraction involving both navigation and conservation, well worth thinking about, but it would require either separate, dedicated moorings or a change in 24hr mooring policies. The BA is not adverse to changing or creating policies to suit its agenda, witness amended Broads Plans over the years. We were also told 'no road signs', ha ha ha!
  20. Not lost though, they are out there, generally in private groups on Facebook but with the occasional, sometimes tactical sortie out into the public arena on topics such as the Acle Debacle and the Acle BNP charade.
  21. I remain totally convinced that JP knows that the Broads is NOT a National Park. Vanessan's 'FAQs' tell me as much Thank you.
  22. Of course they do. Looks a Bobby dazzler too, complements the work top nicely. Easy to maintain as minimal grout required. Assuming they have been fixed with a highly flexible adhesive / Flexible grout should outlast all of us Griff
  23. Wow, read them, be scared, very scared. The signs make even more sense now
