  1. It's such sad news, he really was a true racing legend
  2. I have to admit it's never a yard we think about checking, absolutely no idea why, will be sure to rectify that next year
  3. Have fun you crazy Nogs
  4. How gorgeous are they, wish I was better with the camera
  5. Oh this thread has given me a chuckle and I wasn't going to post as I don't really have much to say other than, I am involved with several car clubs and go to shows and meets on a regular basis. My car currently has legal cosmetic modifications and will maybe having some performance based ones this year. Because this is my hobby, I don't mind the sound of a loud engine or exhaust but from my experience of this scene it is mostly the gents in the 40/50 bracket with the expensive pop and bang mods and exhaust systems, they are all legal and fitted by reputable performance car garages, it's not always a young chav with these cars, actual car enthusiasts can be just as bad lol
  6. All this talk about food is making me hungry, good job it's nearly lunch time, good to see you having a nice time on the water Alan and I'm a big fan of sitting outside the pubs too with a beer watching the world go by.
  7. Excellent, that's very good to know, possible first night mooring for us in September as we will be meeting friends that moor at Broadsedge on the Saturday.

    It's looking good, we are camping in Beccles in August so may pay this a visit, we did have a cruise down that way a couple of years ago but it was morning and we didn't stop.
  9. Is there a footpath away from these moorings to have a walk to anywhere or are they completely isolated????
  10. Love it David, can't believe I've only just watched it
  11. Smogs, this is exactly what we do
  12. We have been hiring for about 10 years now and from our second time we crossed Breydon, oooh we do love a good crossing, we have done it in glorious sunshine and we have done it in very tricky conditions, if you get close and realise the tides are wrong just pull in at GY or Berney till it's right whether it be an hour on or try again the next day. I know a fair few boat owners on the North that don't make the trip South just because they did it soooo many times in their hire days and they have seen every inch of the Broads many many times they just stay local and chill. They don't have the same drive to see as much as possible in that one trip because they will be back for most of the summer.
  13. Well we may just see you on the water then
  14. Well the old girl is fixed guys and gals, a little shocked if I'm honest, no parts replaced either just given a good service and clean, which it should have had back end of last year, by the same company I may add. Think we best get saving though just in case, I just don't trust these guys that come, how do we know the last service tech didn't purposely do something (or not do something) in the hope it breaks and we have to buy a new one, every single time we get the old "oh this is an old unit and parts are hard to get" yes well that doesn't stop your company from covering it though does it grrrrrr. It's an Ideal Classic FF340 if that's of any interest to anyone lol
  15. We are just going to have to wait and see, my hubby really doesn't want a combi but I think when they came out some 18 - 20 years ago they were a bit iffy with the hot water pressure, I had one in my old house and while yes you have hot water all the time and you are only heating what you need just think prior experience has put, well both of us off tbf, they may have come on loads now technology wise and they way they work. If we got rid of the water tank, that's in a cupboard in the bathroom we could then install a shower cubical there instead, ok ok I best stop getting to far ahead of myself, who knows, could just be a simple fix on our old lady yet
  16. Hahaha I'll see when I get home
  17. How swish does that look eh, jolly well done
  18. Oh this is all very technical hahaha have done some screen shotting and fingers crossed we can do some investigative work tonight. I think it's only been about 12 months since we had one of "that companies" super dooper expensive clean flushes on the system, always had issues with the heating and hot water system in that house, not been the boiler before though. Currently our emersion heater isn't working but we have the bits to fix that ourselves. Oh and I'm being told that bottle, pipe and taps set up is for a closed system and ours is open, if that means anything to you lol means nothing to me but just spied an email come through from hubby.
  19. Ok that's fine, will go on the gauge hunt tonight, it's definitely isn't a combi though, or at least I don't think it is, we wouldn't have a water take if it was a combi would we?
  20. No idea hahaha but the gas hob works so I guess we did Our water pressure is extremely low where we live to the point that if someone flushes their loo while you are in the shower you have to brace for a scalding or a freezing lol, are Combination boilers very sensitive to that, will it take me 3 hours to run a bath?????
  21. We have since had confirmation that no money will be taken until an engineer has been so that's fair enough I guess, will have a look for a gauge tonight but there isn't one that's completely visible, this is a conventional boiler btw with a water tank.
  22. Thanks for the tip, I will pass on to him who will never be obeyed so he can check it out tonight, I get what you are saying about the "middle aged independent guy" but we really struggle in our area to find honest reliable trades people, it's not just plumbers, it's any trade. It is terribly annoying when you take a day off work and wait in for nobody to turn up, my mum has had 3 different plumbers over the past few years and none of been reliable where time keeping and getting hold of them was concerned.
  23. Well it looks like we maybe in for an expensive one too, our trusty old boiler decided to not fire up yesterday so we are currently without heat or hot water, we do still have the shower so that's good. Fingers crossed any repairs (if possible) will be covered by the home care scheme and the £60 excess we have just paid before an engineer will be sent I find a bit odd, if you're covered you're covered aren't you? hmmmm maybe I am not understanding the policy correctly, either way I suspect the old gal has had it and we need to brace ourselves lol
  24. We have a Karcher K4 that gets used most weekends for both cars, had just over 12 months and can't fault it so far, proper boys toy Mark loves it so I sit back and let him crack on
