    Tudor Reformation

    So, sat on my lovely wooden boat looking at a glass of malt whisky about the age that I learnt to drive, I know how wonderfully fortunate I am. The fact is ,to get RT to Beccles needs a fair bit of graft. I for one am up for another go, and feel sure that one or two that experienced the first weekend are feeling the same. So Doug , What’s the chance ? Cant believe as a self employed old grump, I am offering my somewhat restricted talents for free. must be something in the Norfolk water ( read beer )

    England V Tunisia

    Sorry, thought this was a forum about the Norfolk Broads! Just one of the reasons I dislike football, it insinuates itself into most aspects of life. No offences intended, by the way.

    I hate to wish my life away, but I will make an exception for football! Be on the boat later today, searching out pubs without at TV.

    My Day

    The thing is with motorcycles, the older you get the smaller they need to be, I built this over the winter for my wife to ride, I had one when I was 17, so for me its a joy.

    Martham Boats

    Sorry, no pictures of the interior, there were to many people working onboard trying to finish it. I have long been of the opinion that there is a hire market for wooden boats, or traditional looking boats with plastic hulls, fitted out to a high standard.

    Martham Boats

    Just want to make public the brilliant service we received from Martham boats last week. We broke down on wednesday with a failed alternator, rang the yard and within an hour they were out to us with a new one, problem was once fitted the batteries were so low it would not charge them for love or money, we managed until next day without power but managed to start the engine, later that day they delivered 4 new batteries on loan. All this despite the fact they were working flat out to finish their stunning new yacht ready for its first hire today and entry in the 3 rivers race (hope the crew do justice to the boat). As its our own boat, we appreciate service when its beyond the expected. Many thanks also to Mick (owner of Nice One) and his son Paul who both gave up a lovely afternoon to help. Warms your heart1 Look out for the new yacht, I think its called Jacander, check out the interior if you can, a class of its own.
