    Britain By Boat.

    Yes watched it and found the presenters boring. Could have made an interesting good programme with the idea being good but poorly executed. John

    Rascal's Learning to Drive

    Hi Robin it’s not you it’s the size of the car, I used a couple of big motors generally 4x 4s but realised after constant hospital visits with parents get something smaller. The 7 series is huge, the 5 series is too big for town/ multi story parking. Now have had quite a few 3 series tourings perfect easy to handle fuel efficient etc. (Other makes are available) 😀 John
  4. Not be long now before they reduce the speed on the road certainly near to the islands John

    BA In Planning Dispute

    This is something I come across every week in my job regarding use of materials in conservation areas in east anglia. The use of upvc / aluminium gets frowned upon quite a lot but generally if you spend a bit of time and show the planners the benefits profiles etc they in the main are fairly flexible. Its when you do things with out consulting them they dig their heels in and quite rightly so. John

    Good News Had To Share

    Couldn’t have put it better myself MM. Living in the area and especially still working we have defiantly used our boat less this couple of years. In fact we haven’t managed a full week this year, but have been on a good few weekends and evenings out to the pub. John

    Stern Only

    Just been for an afternoon walk around Ranworth on my day off and noticed 2 boats side on right on the front. Now I know it’s winter season but there are still quite a few boats around the hotspot areas in November. So when is a stern only mooring not that any more ? John ‘

    Calypso 28 For Sale

    She looks very smart Mark, better than others on the market. is she an ex calypso king boat as they were all white? good luck with the sale shouldn’t be about long even if it’s the wrong end of the season. John

    New Boat From Herbert Woods

    If you have to have 2 pump outs in a week with just the 2 of you on board there is something not right. I would suspect they have put too small a waste tank on them. It will be interesting to see if the fit out is done at HWs (on a Brooms supplied hull) which then could have a different set up? We have the same design Hull with an electric toilet and it lasts us 7 nights before it’s full. Also we tend to have just the 2 of us on board which is perfect for the design of boat? John
