  1. Past hour
  2. Reading the first section of the description, if shes so good why are they selling her? https://www.norfolkboatsales.co.uk/used-boats/aquabell-33-trojan-spirit-of-breydon-862.asp
  3. Having come back from our trip south I was getting concerned about the frequent Bilge pump action Yesterday we came down to the boat to find we had no water. We also noticed the bilge pump didn’t go once over night. When we were hit a few years ago it was right on the water tank which is copper riveted construction and it caused it to leak well it had been leaking again so out with the hand basin and a temporary repair carried out and hopefully it will last long enough to get a stainless tank made. And no bilge pump action at all today.
  4. Today
  5. I think you are right, a theme park, grazing on the visitors to the campsite. paul
  6. Hopefully, crooked businessmen etc won`t be able to get (under very strange circumstances) planning permission to build on it. I would imagine with the pub next door, they must have domestic services etc nearby, and with the pub being there, they may try and claim that a precedence has been set for further development?. I know it`s highly unlikely, but never say never.
  7. Grazing land down that way is very sought after - indeed they still hold auctions for the grazing "for the season". So you could still get an income from it I guess.
  8. Soon to be on "Homes Under The Hammer"?, subject to conditions and planning of course?
  9. I suppose the White Horse (at Neatishead i presume?) is great, providing you can get a mooring at the staithe, or the very least "Gaye`s staithe", but then with a fair walk?.
  10. Enjoy Carole, I'd be surprised if you're not happy. Could be busy though! Beer is excellent too
  11. Comes up on rightmove its the area to east of Berney Arms between the railway and Breydon Water - no doubt of interest to RSPB?
  12. We're booked in to the White Horse for dinner dinner tonight, hoping it lives up to it's good reviews Carole
  13. https://forum.norfolkbroadsnetwork.com/forum/26-technical-questions-and-answers/ Post in here about rebuilding BMC engines and people to go to.
  14. Always worth a second opinion which you may be able to use as a counter claim against the first company. (Mods, can you link this thread to the first one?) Ta. Amjams, please can you answer the Q posted before, What is wrong, what is happening/ not happening?
  15. Likely worth trying Jon Heward at Wayford Marine Services as well. He tends to hoard bits!
  16. from what people have kindly told me I understand that it wouldn't really be possible to tell whether bearings are breaking down just from checking the oil on a dipstick. With that in mind I'm hoping there is no problem with the engine, time for a reputable engineers report I think.
  17. I asked an engineer to quote for a job on my engine, he spent about 20 minutes looking over the engine, told me the job will cost about £4,500 then he sent me an invoice for £125 . Without mentioning it beforehand!
  18. Calcutt Boats advertise as BMC specialists in the canal boat magazines. They list the 1.5 and 1.8 so not sure if they go up to the 2.5. They are in Southam Warwickshire. 01926 814091
  19. Yes nordhydraulic Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  20. Hi Starbrite Try MG cars at Swavesey, Cambridgeshire they have oil coolers for mg's that us the same basic block, is there no manufacturer's name on the casting somewhere?. John
  21. That's just so greedy Great tale and pictures, thanks for sharing.
  22. Thanks I'll give them a try Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  23. Really enjoyed reading your tale and seeing your photos. Having hired the same boat myself always seems to add an extra spark of interest to see what someone else has been doing with "my boat"!
  24. Grazing only I guess - forget about the rest as it will have limited land access probably!
  25. Understand Freedom boats are big fans of the BMC engines, they might know.
