    Neatishead, Officially Full

    sorry we had said we were leaving about 3pm to those around us, the rangers turned up and were assisting us to depart, we got back to the boats at 3.07 and were gone by about 20 past.

    Lads Week

    well 6 litres went in and seems to have stayed in, though it did need a top up after running, I will test later as I have an astronomy meeting, photos and videos downloaded, next to sort through

    Lads Week

    home now, a bit of a boo-boo I topped the water on the car up, drove all the way home then got stuck in traffic and steam started coming out of the bonnet, I had forgotten to put the cap on, I pulled over, and the cap was still on the top of the engine where I had left it, so I put it back on, not wanting to flood the engine with cold water, so finished the last 2 miles home, the temp gauge still said normal, so I may have got away with it, will check later.

    Broad Ambition - Underway on the H2O

    this morning we have found moorings at Horning Staithe, we are double moored (with each others permission of course, and 3 more boats have turned up and been fitted in at the ends, so once again we are at a staithe that is now full (waits for rangers to turn up)

    Broad Ambition - Underway on the H2O

    we had said we were leaving at 3 pm to the boats around us, )though we had checked with the only boat we had blocked in and they were staying overnight, ok we were a bit later than planned, but were ready to slip at 3.15pm, so within an acceptable margin of error, and could easily have changed our minds and stayed a full 24 hours.

    Hi From Lolopaul

    we are out on the lads week, we have quite a few novices trying out on the helm, (all under expert supervision) so if you see a convoy of 3 jewel of lights preceded by Broad Ambition dont worry overly.

    Broad Ambition - Underway on the H2O

    well the nice BA rangers turned up to assist with the traffic jam at neatishead, must have been all our admirers wanting to visit, the problem was a lack of moorings free and too many visiting boats (do they read the forum to find these hotspots of busyness, I wonder?)

    Broad Ambition - The Model

    so I am on the lads week and model #1 is accompanying me, Sunday we stopped at the Waveney River Centre for a few hours, and while some of the lads were fishing I had the model out for an hour or so I even ventured so bold as to take the model out on the river (well the bit of the river I could see while sitting on the front of the boat in the basin. the range of the radio gear was clearly more than I could see the model (or more than I could see which way the model was pointing.
