  1. Shock horror!!! I spy with my little eye, a boat with NO Reg number on bow as the Good Doctor(Honorary) expects all the little people to show.
  2. Navigators for me. We had to claim for a new mast following an incident when we were moored at St Benets, they paid up and sorted it really quickly.

    That is a factor of course. However I bet Poppy is wise to that risk with his canvas.
  4. Oulton Dyke? I say this because the RT saga is continuing there, otherwise I would have said Ant en route to Stalham.
  5. It’s like the recent loo roll ‘shortage’ Waitrose debunked that one by piling them high, cut price right at the entrance to the shop.

    Yes if you read the recent RNLI article, the lack of radios was a factor in the loss of life in that yachts couldn't be found despite the massive rescue operation.

    And you think it hasn’t?

    Yes the safety aspects of the Fastnet are beefy now. Everyone has to have epirb on life jackets; all boats had to have AIS and VHF, all things that were not compulsory in 79. Also you have to qualify with hours day and night and perform well in qualifying races. This year big winds were coming in after most of the field had finished, it was a couple of old Westerly type boats still out there. Eventually they motored in all but one that managed to sail ahed of the gale. Dave thinks they probably sent a helicopter out to advise them to quit.

    Yes, and the uv stable thread will even go through my machine, thicker though it is. It isn't all that expensive.

    A friend had a Hurley 22 it was indeed a capable boat. We fled for our lives inland, abandoning the tents, there were three of us ladies and five children under 10.

    A 22 footer would be challenging to say the least. Especially that year. I was camping on the Welsh coast and had never experienced a wind like it.

    Warp tells me that they had 4m waves on the Fastnet, hopefully Oulton Broad won’t be that lumpy!
  13. There was, and in a high scoring game, Tiger Hawk emerged the winner by one point over 2nd and two over 3rd place. Well done.

    I have a spare one he can borrow.

    There is no truth in the rumour that RT is joining the Hunters Fleet?
  16. It's the transporter beam from the reeds to the Wetshed that convinces me that Dave has superpowers.
  17. True, but then I have never hired a Hunter's boat...guess why?
  18. Ouch!!!!! Stop trying to be sensible Ray, we love you as you are.
  19. Looks as though the keel was once a drop keel and has been somehow sealed over? I don't know much about the Pegasus, but would have thought it was once a trailer sailer. They are very much at home on the Broads. The other one isn't a traditional Broads Cruiser as such, there is an A frame on deck. It looks too like the outboard went on fire at some point, but the boat saved.
