  1. Glorious photos Nigel, thank you. Any chance of one of the Dutch House in the sunshine when you are going past ?
  2. Good morning all, I hope everyone is keeping safe and at least enjoying the sunshine (Hampshire!). Can I ask if anyone has had experience of Torqueedo electric boat drives and whether they would recommend them ? I have been hiring yachts and cruisers on the Broads for more than 40 years but I quite like the idea of relatively silent propulsion for my Zodiac inflatable once we are back to a more normal state of affairs. Best wishes Charles
  3. Bit late to the game but left as is.
  4. Could morning Socrates, could I ask what is the air draft of your beautiful boat ?
  5. Yes, I meant to do that Regulo but I don’t possess the necessary skills, thank you !!!
  6. It looks to be half way between How Hill and Irstead on the right hand side of the river travelling towards Irstead.
  7. I have been mulling over that Alan but timing not quite right for me at the moment.
  8. Where would you estimate airdraft guys, 7ft ?
  9. Thanks for that Chris. I spent many happy summers in Bacton in the 60s/70s with my grandmother who lived in " Danecote" next to Gooch's garage. It used to be a sleepy little village but the Gas Terminal changed all that. There used to be the most glorious crab shack where Colin Gooch sold the most fantastic crabs, kippers and other seafood. All gone now sadly. I must visit again.
  10. Hello Tim, fantastic write up ! I'm very jealous sitting in front of my 6 screens at work in London. With the Martham boats it is a case of DIY. I don't think that any of them have an air draft of much over 6ft so they should go through easily.
  11. Fantastic news, perfect size for solo cruising !
  12. What a superb read, thank you Timbo
  13. Thanks Victoryv I know Ross very well.
