  1. OK - Military (ex) humour, so do not look if easily offended Go to this and watch from 4:55 to 5:15 ( Bluestone 42 )
  2. I decided for a change to go the 'old' way to work today. Who is the lonely soul at Coltishall common this morning ?
  3. Yep - that's why I bought an auto for the yacht. Normal procedure is mudweight up, hoist sails, then back up front to pull the mudweight in before sailing away. One day ( maybe ) the wind will change as I walk back and the boom collect me on the way across. On the other hand, when sailing the performance dinghy, with a fair chance of going swimming, I wear a buoyancy aid. Then there are times when I'm just motoring - and MY decision I tend not to wear one
  4. I bought two 95 AH for less than £100 on a well known auction site in May. Just checked the seller - they currently have 110AH for £65 delivered
  5. Above is clear - was being lifted as I came up to it around 06:45
  6. Hmmm - behaviour aside I'm not sure I'd like to call that one. Look how long it takes an oil taker to stop / change direction - similar shape and relative power / displacement ratio to a canal boat ? I have had low speed 'taps' several times when I've been forced to come to a near stop and lost steerage. Fully powered, thruster equipped boat helms sometimes forget we can't all manoeuvre as easily as them
  7. Hello and welcome. Get a burgee and give me a wave if we pass :-)
  8. I've often wondered if there is any mileage in having a 'members seen on the water' photo thread ? This stems from both a desire to have a shot of me sailing as well as seeing a number of fellow forumites out and about
  9. I thought the one in Wroxham was a double length cut and shut ? There was one on Barton Broad a few years ago - I went and tested / collected it and towed it down from North Yorkshire for its new owner. Wonder if its yours ?
  10. Exactly where it is that photo - so maybe he's planning on coming back North
  11. How may people here own one ? ( yes I do have a small one, as well as several 'real' R/C aircraft / helis together with competency certs for those / insurance )
  12. Tried it at the weekend. My about right feel on the river was 4.2 mph, so pretty close.
  13. Talking about speeding boats
  14. Without getting drawn into anything else, Pelican arrived on the staithe Barton Turf whilst I was there yesterday
  15. She is a sail training ship - Belem https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belem_(ship)
