    Sorry Neil but no. She had to go for personal reasons and it was a sad and reluctant day!! We now have an Aquafibre Diamond 35 which works for us better at our age

    Sheerline 1070

    Having had a 950 Centre cockpit and a 950 Aft cockpit I can only say that they are well built boats. The 1070, if an Aft cockpit is what you are considering, is a real chore to get the canopy up or down for bridges and is a 2 person job. Not ideal if you want to get under a low bridge when its raining! 15-20 minute job. Even Yarmouth needs careful planning as does St Olaves. Wroxham bridge is a no-no anyway. Also don't believe the air draft quoted with everything down, 6' 8" it 'aint! On the other hand, the Centre cockpit is a lovely boat with a real air draft of 6' 8" and will pass under Wroxham etc. with ease and winding the canopy back and dropping the screen is a real breeze and can be done in 5 minutes whilst still underway by one person. They handle well too. Garry at Wroxham Marine (Sheerline) is one of the most helpful guys you would wish to meet. If you need more info or help, please PM me. Bill

    If the greaser hasn't been turned for some time, the grease already in the pipe from the greaser can go hard and that may be your problem. If it has gone hard, it can take some pressure to 'pump it through' and clear it. Remove it and see if it is all clear. If there is hard grease in it, careful use of a small drill turned by hand will remove it.

    New Crossing To Start In 2020

    Going down the Bure towards Marina Keys there are several posts on the bends that I don't remember being there in the 60's and 70's when I went regularly. I agree with Griff, if all that silting were dredged then the outflow would increase and so lower the levels at Potter etc. Arn't they dredging around Marina Keys now though?

    Broad Ambition - Underway on the H2O

    We were going to go up there last Friday but the weed looked really bad and might clog the weed filter. What's it actually like?
  11. Probably to re-lay those damaged kerbs.

    Boat Being Untied.

    I believe the German family were on 'Liberty' which Len Funnel bought from Will when it used to be moored next to us at Wroxham. It damaged the boat quite badly and was put up for sale soon after. It was part of his 'Posh Boats' fleet.

    Good News In Beccles

    The last time I actually saw that 'Lotto' boat it was sunk at Rockland Staithe. About 2-3 years ago I think?

    Square Boat Lights

    Your welcome Mark. I am always reluctant to chuck parts in the skip as they may be useful to someone!
  15. I have changed all the lights on our boat to LED's so these are going free to anyone who would like them. They were working fine when I removed them. PM me for details about collecting them.
