  1. Past hour
  2. Try getting to the tip if you can't drive there. Ours won't even let you in on foot. Official council advice? "Get a neighbour to drive there" We had a problem with a bin not being emptied. We were told it must have been overloaded so the contents wouldn't come out when it was tipped. Their staff never ever make mistakes so it must be us that were in the wrong. An email to our local councillor worked wonders though.
  3. It sounds to me like you might be a perfect candidate for oil analysis, send a sample away and they will tell you exactly where in the engine any particles come from. That way you will know exactly where you stand.
  4. I could well be wrong but I feel she may well have a teak hull, this of course does not make her unsinkable but reduces the risk of terminal rot as with mahogany.
  5. Today
  6. Was what Smoggy wrote but it went astray & try as I could I could not edit my previous post.
  7. Yes I used Rondonay as my login on NBF until we sold her, if Mike says it was in 2012 then I believe him lol
  8. for mechanics I use a firm on the same industrial estate, as most of the companies on the estate use them for their commercial vehicles they are wary at upsetting anyone who works on the estate and do a good job for them (as long as you mention you work on the estate, and exhibit some knowledge). after one MOT where a new suspension arm was required, and I ordered it- next day delivery - then replaced it in my lunch break, then drove straight to their workshop - still wearing overalls over my work clothes, they know that they cannot Bulls**t me and I get good service and reasonable prices from them (as they put it estate pricing for working on the same estate) not the cheapest available MOT's but they dont find extra work that needs doing either.
  9. Nice one! Thanks for taking the time and trouble to write up your adventures.
  10. Yesterday
  11. We will ring you on Tuesday after the weekend and the fridge will be available on Saturday morning 31st August.
  12. Yeah, i suppose i should have used a different turn of phrase?
  13. @BroadsAuthority Tom (et al).. I've got a new book (Canoe on the broads) and I spotted that the Ellingham portage has been a bit of an issue for some time... (I guess it's a valid point being right below the weir there).. But this EDP https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/environment/portage-on-waveney-canoe-trail-not-likely-in-time-for-summer-1-5353257 mentions hope was happening last year.. Do you know if there's any updates? Thanks in advance :)
  14. My insurance is also due for renewal, have been with my current broker for several years but have just recieved a renewal quote £135 dearer than last year. Needless to say i wont be using them this year. Just spoke to Alan Boswell in Norwich, got a reasonable quote from them so will go there.
  15. We are hoping to be back for two weeks!! in October, circumstances allowing, I have missed my broads trips this year having only had about 10 days, very expensive boat ownership. Worth every penny!
