  1. Ah right thanks for clearing that up, Diplomat is often up the Ant so guessed there must be some differences..
  2. Is Fair diplomat a Birchwood 340? because that squeezes under Ludham bridge, maybe because it has extra things fitted for the canopy that makes it a bit taller..

    Bow Thruster Fitting

    The so called ***** button as you call it is because my wife is disabled and no use at all when it comes to mooring up, and my balance is at best questionable since an infection damaged my inner ear, it's pretty much to ensure we are safe and don't put ourselves or others at risk when manovering in tight spaces, like lots of things in life if it makes things easier and safer that's got to be a good thing, would you call abs on bikes like triumph tigers scardy cat brakes , no of course not , they are not essential but nice to have , thanks for all the other advice we have had a couple of quotes and are progressing with our purchase , sorry for not replying or updating thread sooner but we are surrounded by boxes and busy busy sorting stuff out for the house move..
  4. Just wondering if anyone can recommend anywhere preferably up north that could fit a bow thruster to an Alpha 35 ?? Just wanted to get an idea of price before we sign on the dotted line , it's way down on the list of things we need to do but needed a quote or an idea of approx cost so we can budget for everything else, boat will 99% be moored in Horning just need to confirm details when we move home on the 18th..thanks

    Good News Had To Share

    Upped our offer today as our original one was declined , it's not too far away from the asking price and what the estate agents have said the vendors are hoping for, so pretty confident that it will be accepted, our little boat has been sold and has been trailered away today, never thought that would be so hard to watch , gonna miss it more than I thought..

    Good News Had To Share

    We have placed an offer on a property in Ludham and its not yet been accepted but is under consideration, exciting times for us but still panicking if it does get accepted, may be looking for a permanent mooring as well as a new boat , no more paying to get our boat trailered across country , just arrived back after a six hour drive but fingers crossed wont have to do that too many more times...

    Better spending money upgrading the 90's galley and dated interior rather than tech, im sure that will make more of a difference to mum and partner than an upgraded charger and air con , get them out on the water and save the gadgets for indy

    How do you know the windows let little breeze in you have not even seen the boat yet.

    Why on earth do you need AC on a boat that size, if its just a weekend boat you might encounter half a dozen days a year ,just open the windows and drop the canopy

    Single Parent Hiring Boats

    Ever so slightly different circumstances but how does this effect me hiring with a disabled partner, ok the booking is for two adults but as the wife is pretty much wheelchair bound she does not helm the boat nor assist in mooring, so I am in effect solo hiring, can't really see any difference to a single hirer plus the fact I have other things to take care of ie the wife, never had any questions asked before but would like to think this decision won't affect us, well I hope not anyway....
