  1. I know of two yards that will not let you hire out your own boat. It's in the Terms and Conditions. The Insurance would go through the roof anyway and would you like your boat being used by, perhaps, Stag and Hen do's? Seen that happen before with Hire Craft, even picking up extra people down river!(Wayford and Ranworth) Big NO from us!!
  2. Any idea where-a-bouts they will be?
  3. I spotted that one as we were coming home from the boat. It was easy to spot from a good distance though, so anyone caught on it wasn't paying attention.......
  4. So someone wasn't very Focus'd on their driving....
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. There you go M. I doubt I'de risk going there!
  9. 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?
  10. I have used Milk&More for over 40yrs now(Through all it's takeovers) So that's another * in my book
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
