    Yet more wise words and observations emanating from James's keyboard: http://www.thebroadsblog.co.uk/2019/01/some-thoughts-on-glover-review.html?fbclid=IwAR0bAtf14HjrCTvpsmo1zUCgCHTAOabl7hzJrhxtGMjmhZFvT_DZEBL9ewk Once again, well worth reading.

    Help With Boat Decking

    Jeanie, the nice folk at 'Galleon' boat storage & moorings, down Puddingmoor, have always allowed DIY. You could save money by doing all the labouring, e.g. stripping the old decking off and then finding a local boatbuilder, NOT a carpenter, who will do the skillful bits for you.

    Reckon PumpMedic will need to buy a 65 footer just to accommodate the delivery crew and their liquid requirements plus three 'heads' (bogs) for subsequent discharge purposes!

    Help With Boat Decking

    Hi Jeanie, sad news, my friend is booked up for months. To redeck a small boat means that the boat needs to come out of the water and have platforms around her to work from, its is not a job that can easily be done afloat. I redecked a 26 footer about eight years ago, had I paid a boatyard to do it then I suspect that it would have cost me, based on time and materials used , not less than four thousand pounds. That's not to say that every 26 footer will cost the same. It isn't just the decks but new quadrants where the deck meets the cabin side, new toe rails around the top edges and new rubbing strakes around the side edges and then the sheathing and paint for the decks. Fortunately I only had to replace one deck beam and the shelf that the deck sit upon was sound otherwise it could have cost me more.

    Saw this on Face Book Market Place: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1828751734100268 These boats have their fans, few problems in mooring, manageable, good to learn on, great fun, fits under Broads bridges, good first rung on the ladder and if you don't then like boating you can always sell it & you won't have lost a fortune!

    Volunteer is most certainly the right word! We just love the opportunity to help/show off to new brethren of the rhond. CDs might include The Singing Postman, just to teach you how to talk proper! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHe4tMN6IeE

    Anyone Recognise This As A Broom?

    Just don't get us started on flag etiquette and trailing fend-offs!

    If she is on the Broads then a volunteer delivery crew is guaranteed, in return for a full English. Lowloaders are good, so long as the driver understands boats. Re brokers and surveyors, get the right of both and not a problem, at least on the Broads. Would be quite happy to take a preliminary peep.

    That's the sharp end!

    Sometimes referred to as the blunt end, t'other being the sharp end. As for those numbers, IF my memory serves me right, I stress IF, are on the aft starboard quarter, just under the rubbing strake! (Right hand top corner of the back end in plain English).

    Pmr Licence Free Radio On The Broads

    When I was in the Coastguard I did six hour radio watches on VHF, did it for years as an auxiliary. I never did have a licence, just did as the CG told me. However I did have to lash out and do a test in order to use my own VHF, that rankled!

    Only One Cooking Ring?

    Easy, put them in the hot water that you'll later be using for washing up. Actually I think that 'mum' had a point! If under way I use a German stein rather than a plate, much easier to hold and they hold the heat.
