  1. Bella the easy way to attach pictures is just drag and drop into the box below the bit where you type your message. (that is using a standard browser rather than one of our apps.

    Also think that some people might need that temporary employment at that time in the year, Norfolk probably has a large amount of seasonal work, even within the boating industry there are many, from the cleaners who only work while boats are being hired, to the ba rangers who man the yacht stations, so out of season these people will require employment.
  3. to be fair putting the roof up single handed wasnt easy, but it was doable, but most of the time I travelled everywhere with the roof down, just putting it up at night.

    probably when the little man who types out by hand all of the toll emails, then manually inputs the paid tolls into the database retires.
  5. I get the choice of 6 berths to sleep in instead of just 2
  6. sit back, relax with a glass of wine and a tube of pringles
  7. eating a tube of Pringles maybe?
  8. well just got the phone call, please amend me to Judith (upgrade courtesy of Martham Boats) , Jayne wont be ready in time (again), at this rate if I book Jayne for the meet each year I may well get to try every boat Martham Boats have.

    a bit like the stour in Kent, depending where upon it you live it can be the stoor - or elsewhere the stower
  12. except the poster says saturday 4th of may and you say saturday 6th of may- according to my Calendar its the 4th, or are we talking Norfolk time again.
  13. just for proof bruise picture taken this morning, to be fair I didnt find this until later yesterday, I do know when I did it, when I missed footing on a beam across the engine bay with my elbow and managed to land on my shoulder (I was lying across an open hole at the time getting close up and intimate with the new heater.
  14. I have the bruises to prove it too (having arms like an orangutan helps too)
  15. probably the file extension, some phones save them with different extensions, when you copy it over the file extension is amended to jpg. then it loads.
  16. well you know I talked about those deck lights and how small they were at 1/12 scale, well after a long trip from china the led's have arrived, the wires are hair fine, the led's themselves are tiny. but stick them on a 3v supply and they shine out.

    good to meet you too, I guess you were lucky to get away without getting a paintbrush pressed into your hand, I also wished I could have spent a bit longer chatting, but it really was busy as you saw.
  18. it seems I only had time to take pictures of the skeg as I was measuring it up to make a drawing. you can clearly see the part cut out that needed replacement parts welded in, it was surmised that something had at some point caught in the prop and caused the damage there, thus allowing for the rust to set in.
  19. i'm up for tug of war - tie the rope round me and I will be anchor.
  20. I turned up having driven straight up after work Friday, I didnt get the chance to take many pictures. among the many things I did was measuring up the skeg to produce drawings should a replacement ever be needed, working on the heater, getting it positioned, ducted, exhaust connection etc, it fought us every inch of the way, one of the ducts to the rear had split where it came through the bulkhead, so this had to be re-routed to gain an extra 2 inches to get it further through to connect to the undamaged section. planing hull patches down ready for sanding, cleaning up the area to be welded, it was non stop from 8am until i had to leave at 7.30 pm, i had a good 3 hour run home, so just have to get everything I need to do this weekend done in just the one day.
  21. my apologies, tomorrow I will be doing a quick run up from work to put a day in helping Griff and Robin.
  22. well last night I had the dreaded bulb failed dipped beam message, opened up the cover at the back of the headlight and the bulb started working again. got back in moved off and the warning is back, checked again and it started working, once again it stops - drove home called into halfords and got a pair of new bulbs. swapped out the broken one no problem, came to do the other and the plastic connector just crumbles to dust in my hand- leaving me with 2 bare spade terminals, got it all working and have ordered a pair of replacement terminals, so thats another job - about time too as one terminal had obviously been running hot (by the look of the blued terminal on the bulb). It doesnt really surprise me as these lights have been on every time the car has been used - for 17 years, these connectors disintegrating is common after this time.
