  1. Exactly what I was originally trying to suggest..........
  2. Melvyn, Hi, and a warm "Welcome Aboard" the Good Ship NBN. In such conditions as Alan mentions we have always stopped in an open bit of the river before we intend to moor and see if the wind or tide is the over-riding factor. You'll soon see which is the stronger.
  3. But will the yards let newbies out in those conditions, Peter? Imagine the potential chaos at Ludham Bridge for starters. (P.S. Mods, what happened to over 2300 of my posts? Peter still has his).
  4. It was a Saturday afternoon, 3 years ago, when we were stuck onboard Fiday Girl at Acle bridge with strong winds gusting up to 35 mph. At about 4pm a hire boat from Wroxham struggled past us and then turned to come in nose to nose with us.... The elderley couple were already distressed and I attempted to shout helpful instructions into the howling wind but they couldn't hear. A few minutes later, with our bow roller hanging half off, we managed to tie them up. So what tomorrow? From 10.00 - 17.00 the wind forecasts are for SW 25/26mph and gusts to over 45mph. I wouldn't personally take my own boat out in those conditions.
  5. We took our 22ft Fairline holiday from Dartmouth to Brundall via Guernsey (first pic at St Peters Port before we renamed her) and she had a single petrol engine. We crossed from Gt Yarmouth to Holland (second pic in Zierikzee) a couple of times a year later on.
  6. So very eloquently and well written sentiments, Fred and Vaughan. Hear! Hear!
  7. A warm "Welcome Aboard" the good ship NBN from us too, Spray.
  8. Ah well, it's footy (soccer) in just under a month..........................................
  9. 1060mb??? I've been in aviation and sailing for 60 years and never heard of pressure that high!
  10. "Hear! Hear!" I found the interview both informative and constructive.
  11. A warm "Welcome Aboard" the good ship NBN, Raj.
  12. Here's the latest pic:
  13. It's a bloody good job that you don't drink alcohol, then, Neil!
  14. And from us too! (We had hoped to surprise you all but it wasn't to be; perhaps next year if I've totally recovered my balance after my double-knee ops last year). Have a Great Time!
  15. Enjoy your Roast Beef, Steak or Burger today!
