    Mud Weight Size

    In my defense it is a godsend to me as I have severe arthritis to both hands and extreme finger tip joints ..... can manage to tie the boat up in a fashion but sadly pulling up a mud weight can leave me grabbing for the painkillers ... lol

    With a bit of practice ... possibly a few swear words you will soon get the hang of it ?

    Shetland 27

    Yes very easy .... the canopy splits in half (unzipps in half ) so you can have just the front part up if you want a bit of sun shade and the back end folds down flat.... however it can all be left up and to get the whole canopy level with the top of the windscreen we just unzipp the front 2 canopy bars and they fold forward thus lowering whole canopy level with top of the screen and the rear canopy bar ( we do this when it's raining and want to get under bridges quickly without to much fuss and worry about airdraft)... whole canopy down is also easy and a one person job.

    Plenty of room for 3 with plenty of seating area ... never had 4 of us stay overnight on it ..lots of storage space ... our son (13) has the under helm sleeper compartment that he calls his own space. Easy boat to handle and control plus with screens down it's only 6ft 6inch air draft.

    Windy Tonight

    Salhouse was re opened yesterday(we were there talking to Hollie the warden yesterday) .... only place where you can't Moor is where the railings are still in place near to the footpath leading to the car park.

    So Who's About Over Easter

    We got here today and will be staying until 29th... currently at Ranworth for the night and then tomorrow (saturday) going to head towards Wroxham doing a little bit of litter picking from the bankside and margins enroute. Going to stay north and make the most of the relatively quiet rivers.
