  1. Past hour
  2. aside from all the smutty jokes and inuendo going on, in the world of engineering / machinist working metal aside from the many male channels i have recently found one from Canada - Blondiehacks - who really gets into machining and explains all her techniques - and also includes the mistakes, showing that not everyone does it correctly the first time.
  3. Today
  4. I popped up on Thursday and will be back up over the weekend also
  5. Yesterday
  6. This evening's quiz was won by Bern, with SteveO and NikO joint second. Thanks to all who joined in.
  7. Regarding industrial contamination, already mentioned, perhaps there is a case for substantial government grants in order to encourage the use of brownfield sites. We have acres and acres of contaminated brownfield sites besides Lowestoft Harbour, not only that but there is a mile or more of breathtakingly expensive iron shuttering that needs replacing before any building work can commence. That, and the huge cost of asbestos removal, makes for very, very expensive building land when compared with greenfield sites.
  8. Looks like Ludham Bridge - spent a happy few hours there back in Jason's day with No Worries at 45' bow down in a sling when we pruned a blade off the prop.
  9. Yes, but without that Vetus weed filter! Not hirer proof. (see above)
  10. I have just picked up a full roll of Original Trakmark if any still needs any.
  11. Just in case! From: Police Connect Sent: Thursday, December 3, 2020 4:59 PM Subject: Norfolk Police - This week's Consumer scam alerts from Norfolk Trading Standards The following is a Police Connect message. Scam Alert – Telephone cold calls claiming to be from ‘Amazon’ – 3 December 2020 We are again warning residents to be on their guard for telephone cold calls claiming to be from ‘Amazon’. We have had several reports from Norfolk residents of recorded message calls claiming to be from Amazon that advise
  12. Last week
  13. My understanding is that the original agreement was for Dunes to open at Acle for one year as a means of assessing the viability of a catering outlet at that location. It was also suggested, at the time, that the building itself had a very limited, remaining life span, that being, in part, the justification for the construction of the proposed Acle Debacle. Since then I have heard absolutely zero on this topic. I would like to think that the Dunes people now have some form of security but I suspect that you know who is still clutching at straws in regard to his grandiose ambitions.
  14. Thanks to John and Stumpy. I'll be doing a bit of poking around online until it's either easy to get stuff via the ether or it becomes safe to visit in person. The lady at NRO says that some of the pages are fixed together and may be difficult to photocopy. I don't expect her to have examined them too closely at a first enquiry so I'm sort of hoping there may be folded drawings. Fingers crossed but there's got to be something useful in 30 pages. Knowing my luck though, it may be one page of registration and 29 pages of terms and conditions.

  19. Dear All Urgent Boating News - post 41 on Breydon is missing from station. A channel buoy will be installed over the next couple of days until a new post can be installed.

Kind Regards Laura Milner Administrative Officer Operations Broads Authority Yare House, 62-64 Thorpe Road, Norwich NR1 1RY Please note that my normal working days are Tuesday to Friday.
  20. Yarmouth does have its good points - the Red Herring, the Barking Smack and the Mariners Mind you you'd need to change at Brundall from your gaff JM The route via the Berney Arms is very scenic.
  21. We have the Thetford Midi Prima mkIII in the boat and in the caravan, find it to be an excellent oven, last Sunday err indoors did a full roast with yorkies, handles casseroles etc with ease and has a good grill also. Matched it in the summer with the Thetford 4 burner hob.
  22. Great topic. Thanks Ray. My memory is much more recent and like Grace, I’ve probably told it before. It was the first time I ever saw Cockshoot Broad. Had seen the moorings on one of Robin’s videos and was happy to find somewhere that we could have a walk. But I had no idea what we would see until we opened one of the hatches in the hide. Wow! So beautiful. You can’t ever repeat that in quite the same way once you know what’s there.
  23. He only sold the hire fleet and marina he retained the riverside property's. Fred
  24. Hurray! Can’t wait to get out and use them.
  25. That is very kind Ray, let us see what Spring brings! Some order of normality I hope.
  26. Thank you for the information. My involvement with this old lady is quite small I am afraid we used to own the plot of land next to but one to where she was kept. I as a child liked old woodies and would often go round to see the owners when they were down I can remember her being used but later life she was used as a house boat and then not used at all. My dad sold the plot of land about 20 years ago and I have often wondered what has happened to her. It’s nice to know she may well have another inings. I am afraid my woodwork skills are not up to much. Roy
