  1. Sorry to be late in replying but I always use a hot-air gun or an hair-dryer to remove stickers. no problems!
  2. Julz, Hi We're so sorry to hear that and hope all goes well. My scabs finally fell of last Thursday and unfortunately I have another from today..... But NOT from the door-frame. this time the door-handle...........
  3. Thanks for that, w44nty! Just what I wanted........ I can leave them there and go across to the Ferry Boat for a jar or some!
  4. Adam, Hi That is a most fantastically kind offer! We've PM'd you on it! ps We've got all the qualifications you need.........
  5. I have arranged to take two (younger) guys out fishing and wonder if anyone can give any tips as to where we might go near Brundall? Surlingham Broad? Surlingham Ferry? Rocklands Broad? I just don't know. Any suggestions (decent, please!) welcomed.
  6. I just wrote: "But that's another story we hope to hear soon from the players!" And it's pretty obvious that I didn't read the previous post before I posted this one..... Well , it was just after 6am this morning when I edited/re-sized the pics with Paint (Thanks to Col for the IT assist yesterday afternoon!) And to Gavin for his master-class on eye-splicing on Saturday afternoon! (Now our mud-plug will never be parted from the boat!)
  7. What a weekend! The very last to leave yesterday afternoon were 'The Salties' ... They were all in place at Somerleyton in time for the "trial" opening at 3pm....... listening in on Ch 6 & 12 was as good a comic-opera as we've ever heard... It went on and on... But that's another story we hope to hear soon from the players!
  8. We set off bright and early on Friday morning at 7am. Coldham Hall wasn't very busy! The Beauchamp Arms wasn't any better! Friday Girl's quite content to burble along while I make a cuppa! And we're cruising along at 5.9mph When a rapidly moving hire boat heaves into view astern going rather quickly.... Neil, the eel-fisherman wasn't too impressed; he was all but overturned, about ten minutes before we reached him.... Cantley was quiet as well Reedham Ferry's £3 a night hasn't done a lot for their trade! Whereas the Lord Nelson looked to have been the busiest of all the pubs we passed on the Yare! "Notorious" looked happy as we passed by And Adam and crew passed us serenely on the New Cut... We were quite pleased the crane-driver saw us! Passing Somerleyton we actually saw a workman............ And finally to the WRC at 10.40; a beautiful morning's cruise!
  9. Mark, Hi I do have Microsoft Works installed... does that help me?

  15. I'm using Vista and Windows Photo Gallery on my laptop and want to reduce pics to 1600 x 1600 or less for the Forum. At home I use XP and WPG and it's simple but on my laptop I just can't find the instruction to reduce the pixels; all it lets me do is crop. Any suggestions, please? :oops: I put this in Technical Discussions but I'm not sure if it won't get more views (and hopefully the answer!) here.

  19. Thanks, Rod. Yes, that's about the end of the shake down cruises, totalling 23 days so far! You may remember we had a bow-thruster and hydraulic steering fitted before we bought her? So it's easy on the wheel now! Will try to meet up in July over that Summer meet at WRC; I think you will be somewhere nearby? (i.e. on the Southern Broads?).
  20. Perry, Hi Yes, unfortunately our mooring there just wouldn't manage a 12ft beam......
  21. Rachel and Ads (Adam) are due to arrive at 12.00 and actually make it... must be a record! Stow their overnight gear and we're off to Coldham Hall, whose moorings are empty, for some Humpty Dumpty, 'Reedcutters' I think. And jolly good it is! The girls manage with Aspalls cider. I take Jim for a walk and then it's time to head up-river to the Surlingham Ferry, where we've booked a mooring and an evening meal. Moored up ontime and now it's Wherrytime again! Back onboard a good bit later, after feeding two visiting swans, me for a snooze and others to take Jim for a walk. A really good meal at the Ferry; I am brave and try the rib-eye.......... it is superb, about the best I've ever tasted! Well done you all at the Ferry! Monday I'm up early again and clear away the debris from yesterday while enjoying a refreshing cuppa! Rachel and Ads are up and about by 09.00; so we set off for Brundall. Rachel helms, she's a natural and steers small. We tie up at Bells and tidy up before our short journey home. It's only been a short break but what a lovely time we've had. Good company, food and drinks! We can't wait until the next time!!!
  22. Thanks to you all so far with the nice comments. Now waiting for Rachel to bring me the CD of all the pics she took at Surlingham. Sorry, Paul, not about now until early May. Can you make the Spring Meet?
