    Rascal's Learning to Drive

    Dont get me wrong about diesel engines, I do think they have their place, in boats !

    Rascal's Learning to Drive

    I would worry more about having a diesel engine, than not having a spare wheel !

    Classic Boat Magazine

    Just got the January edition of Classic Boat Magazine, featuring the promised article on the Beccles Wooden Boat Show. Really nice article promoting this wonderfull event. I know he won't blow his own trumpet, so I will do it for him! Dave (Janet Anne) is pretty much solely responsible for getting this up and running, this brilliant event is very much the highlight of our year. roll on ! Cheers Dave.

    When we were lads and somebody bought a Triumph, we always used to say they keep you fit, pushing them home.

    Judith M

    judith M is out and about on the southern rivers this week, if you see her give the crew a big wave, she is being skippered by Ross and his family as a belated wedding gift. Ross can usually be found aboard Lady Anne, on Horsey Mere doing his excellent wildlife trips, this is a bit of a bus mans holiday but with extra special guests, nearly new wife,Holly, daughter Grace and newish born son. The weather looks fair and has all the makings of memorable family holiday. Wish them well if you see them, we do.

    Time Share

    We tried it, didn't work for us, petty issues can get blown out of all proportion. I thought it would be good for us as we both work, and to a point it did. Decided to sell our shares (easier said than done) and buy our own boat. That was ten years ago and the restoration took 5 years and a lot of hard earned, we still don't get as much time as we would like as we still work to pay for it. Boat owning or syndicate owner, both need compromises, we have tried both and know which we prefer. On the positive front the cost per night is now coming down after 5 years afloat, I reckon about £500.00 a night !
