  1. Maybe he was French and thought as he was in England that "La priorite a droite" is "La priorite a gauche" ici.

    Or Bealach na Ba and Shieldaig commonly known as The Pass of the Cattle to Applecross. 11.5 miles long rising to nealy 2100 ft from sea level and back to sea level. A good snow storm in late June is a regular.

    Let's Drive: Levisham To Whitby

    Whitby is great but my two favourites in that neck of the woods are Staithes and Robin Hood Bay. Two beautiful villages especially out of season.
  4. In my day it was Triumph Bonnevilles and Norton Commandos that were king of the North Circular. That is until the best of both worlds....Triton Norton featherbed frame fitted with a Bonneville power unit mated to a close ratio Norton Manx gearbox.

    I had a Nasa BM1 on my boat to monitor my two batteries and it was money well spent.

    My Day

    Not wishing to waste "Shirt Sleeve" weather in February, I stayed North today and walked Blakeney Marshes. Juno is looking very smart with her new antifouling. 20190215_125816.mp4

    My Day

    Such beautiful day in Norfolk I decided to travel south and walk the large dune system at Winterton. Stopping at Horsey for a few minutes on the way. Feb 14 and I walked in the dunes in a shirt and jumper! No doubt we will pay for this springlike week.

    Hoveton Great Broad, Bushcraft And A Canoe.

    Some portage from car park to Broad and back again at Salhouse. He must be well fit.

    I had £1200 of damage to my berth cushions stored for winter in my loft. Had stored them there for years but this winter (2012) they chewed every one.

    The edible dormouse? No, too fiddly I think you would need two or three to make a meal.

    In my Native Chiltern Hills there is the King Chewer, the Glis Glis or Edible Dormouse. This bu#*er did a load of damage in our home just before our purchasers Surveyor was due.

    "Styx" was that a freudian slip? Is not Styx the deity and river forming the boundary twix earth and Hades?

    Cleaning Up The Lego

    Most likely a Lotus or BRM. The last seasons before his plane crash (71,72,73,74,75) were Brabham, Shadow and Lola. Do you have a Lotus in Gold Leaf livery? I remember there was a lot of celebration in 1966 when he won the Indy500 driving a Lola Ford. Hope you get him back to his right car.
  16. You would need to speak to Hunter Fleet as it depends on the Battery set up, also tide will make a large difference to range.
  17. They have gone for the best in Torqeedo, they are probably the leaders in Electric Outboards up to 80hp, hybrid and inboards for small leisure craft. Their products are the Rolls end of the market with prices to match. Terrific products.

    Shorepower Cable With Usb And Power Breaker

    If you buy one power it up and use the manual test button. I had to return two of them to Norwich Camping before I got one that worked.

    Interesting Works At Felbrigg Hall

    I have never really thought of Felbrigg as Bure Valley but the waters of the lake actually make their way to Scarrow Beck that joins The Bure about two miles above Aylesham.
  21. That's fine. I bought them and never got round to fitting them. Ours were going yellow and brittle in the sun.
  22. I have a couple of white covers if they are of use to you. I sold the boat to a dealer and these were in the lazerette so I kept them.
  23. Sad to hear there will be no Beale Park Show this year and that there are no plans to try to to save it in the future. I always considered it "The Show" for the small boat sailor, lovers of wooden craft and beautiful workmanship. It was a "Must" for us when we lived in The Chilterns, a wonderful day out in a beautiful setting.
