  1. And here's one Maggie took of Friday Girl during the Equinoxial Spring (High) Tide at Reedham (note Sandpiper and Sally B's electric cables!
  2. Reminds me of why we love the Norfolk Broads so. Great pics, Simon!
  3. Especially if you go out in the Summer Hols! I'm surprised about Beccles Old bridge which surely has as much clearance as Wroxham at LW? http://www.norfolkbroadsdirect.co.uk/pd ... et2011.pdf
  4. Nor to forget that: "a slight inclination of the cranium is as adequate as a spasmodic movement of one optic to an equine quadruped devoid of its visionary capacity"
  5. I thought that about our Nanni 50 when she stopped approaching St Olaves bridge this morning.......... story to follow tomorrow when I recover from it all...
  6. Of course, David. I checked ours again this morning and they are actually water traps and as such are below the tank level. They then go on to the diesel heater and the engines, all of which have their own filters.
  7. Trev, Hi Regardless of the number of cylinders, if you turn the engine over until the inlet and then the outlet have closed, give it another half turn and both will be ok to check. This video may help:
  8. I can't see why, David, as surely the weight of fuel (if your tank is nearly full) will push fuel down the line into the filter/water-separator? (just to drain a few cl's of water off)
  9. We were never 'fair-weather' sailors but the weekend's forecast would cast doubts in our minds about coastal passages!! :naughty: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/mar ... thForeland
  10. We've been doing what David suggests for many years with total success. From a Sabb 2GZ, through a Volvo TAM D 41P to a Nannl 50. they all respond well!
  11. I wouldn't want to look at that with a hangover.........
  12. "They're 'aving a larff, aren't they?"
  13. Gav, Hi Looking forward to seeing the new one on Saturday; I don't even know what she is!
  14. MY littleboat said: Happens alot on longer posts - it will 'time out' and reset... best write it in word then cut and paste it into the box!! We must stop meeting like this, Gav!
  15. This happened to me in early days on the forum ad it was suggested (by David, 'Antares9', I think) that you should write the piece in 'Office' or 'My Docs' and then paste it into the post.. I've done this ever since with long posts. Did you save a copy to your drafts?
  16. Thanks for that, Dan Recently Confused of Hockham......
  17. Mark, Hi But the pic shows her going down the river and I'm surprised she won't be fitted out before then...
  18. Dan, Hi That's an impressive write-up on Magical Time but I see they're not taking bookings until July..... I wonder why?
  19. Rob, Hi It's necessary to point out that there are frequent noticeboards which say "Slippery when wet". they are, in fact very slippery and nigh on dangerous at night. In the winter, when frozen, they ARE dangerous........ at least the bloody geese have been penned up..... I recently asked David Archer to consider putting chicken wire down all along the walkways.....
  20. But now I've installed the English Dictionary it does!!!
  21. Thanks, David. I did install it but it doesn't work with firefox, which is my preferred browser.
  22. James, Hi When I post a reply it used to underline any errors in both my words and the ones I had quoted.(As in yours above). Perhaps it's this new laptop but I've tried eveything to do with 'spell-check' and can't get it back.
  23. Seems to me that yoo dont need it John, cos I can sea thears nuffin rong wiv yor spelin Dave David and Dave, both............ : I doo now how tu spel but im komputr dislexik and mayk lots ov mistayks............
  24. I posted this in the members' area but so far no replies.... any help here, please? I've notissed that the spell-chekker isn't working.... :naughty: How do I get it bak on, pleez?
