    That First Coffee

    Good choice Chris ive topped up bean supplies this morning for the delonghi machine which is simple to use and makes great coffee. I got that for my 50th birthday, 55 next week now we’re did that 5 years go😫 John

    Trixie (Rascal's Fleet)

    The Hains 32 is a lovely boat, very well fitted out but it’s a little small in length and width and with a £250k price tag much prefer the 35 Hull Hains, Broom, Westwood. A low hours 5 to 10 year old example for half the above cost would be my bet. Ive never bought an ex hire boat preferring low hours private but can see the attraction with a well maintained example from the likes a Richadsons but would stay well away from the likes of the recent old alpha models.

    Judging by those establishments you must have deeper pockets than most then Chris John

    Acle Bridge Inn

    Sorry Chris don’t get your school of thought re it’s not the kind of place you would entertain if it’s important. It doesn’t pretend to be a fine dining experience. We had our daughter wedding reception in the thatched area 5 years ago after being let down badly by another local hostilely (no names mentioned but it was in Wayford ) I will say all the staff bent over backwards and we couldn’t have asked for a better venue by the river and and it was a great relaxing atmosphere. The food was also superb and I don’t say that lightly as my wife was a head chef in a past life at a large hotel. With the amount of people going through their doors in the season it would by virtually impossible to book prime tables out. John

    Expectations From A Mooring?

    Weather forecast looks great for the week apart from much needed rain tomorrow it should be a little more comfortable because it’s been very uncomfortable this last week. John
  7. I just don’t understand people’s mindset with the roundabouts on this road as I use it every day every other car that uses the islands go from the first lane then when they reach the islands cut into the 2nd lane or even third to go straight across why!! If your in the left lane going straight across stay in the left lane around the island simple Whilst I agree it’s not the best design it’s mainly down to rubbish driving John

    Very interesting Vaughan thank you for sharing 😀 John
  11. Hi Vaughan I guess you know more about the hire boat industry than anyone on here but things are a changing regarding emissions the yards will have to sort out the battery situation sooner than later, I don’t have to start my engine to use the heating. cars won’t be able to run their engines in city’s much longer and it’s got to work it’s way onto the rivers at some point. http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/politics/norwich-city-centre-drivers-who-idle-engines-while-stopped-may-face-20-fines-1-5425046
  12. Not vegetarian then I see 😂 have a good day may see you around Brundall if your around John
  13. To compare a cross channel ferry to the broads is stupid. Any body who has a significant investment in a boat and it is their pride and joy like Cals looks like and so is our boat quite rightly concerned when moored in certain areas so don’t knock him for stating the obvious or are we going all politically correct with hire boaters now for fear of offending 😀 John
