  1. Oops - read it properly Ness! 🤭
  2. I wonder if panko breadcrumbs would be good for these?
  3. Me too, for the last 4/5 years. The older I get, the more unstable I get so I thought ‘better safe than sorry’ and I am now well into the habit of donning said life jacket. I have been boating for 37 years now and know how easy it would be to get caught out. Remember Charlie’s (Bound 2 Please) tale from a couple of years back? A great write-up grounded, I have enjoyed your adventures greatly. Whatever you are up to next, I hope it all goes well and I wish you a safe and enjoyable journey back to New Zealand.
  4. It’s a very enjoyable ramble, more please.
  5. I should also add that there are gates which are code locked overnight, all adds to the security.

    Trouble is, too many helms have no idea what their wash is doing!
  7. If you can avoid Friday or Saturday nights, Norwich is no problem and certainly a city worth visiting. Boats are securely moored using the rings on the posts and by dropping your mudweight. I believe the harbour master double moors boats if they are very busy, he is usually there until 8pm. £13 overnight.
  8. Maybe it’s downstream of Wayford...........oops!
  9. I think it might be a case of or for you now grounded!
  10. Have a guess..............! I suppose the cost of all these boats having to be moved comes out of the navigation budget?
  11. That is a very sad story. Good to know NBD can be sympathetic when needed.
  12. Oh dear, another resounding ditto! 🙂
  13. I hope the rest of your trip goes well grounded. I have a friend who visits Haute Bois and refers to it as Hobbis, not sure that can be taken as gospel but it does sound a bit more ‘Norfolk’.
  14. Not exactly ‘discouraged’, they are totally prohibited!
  15. I seem to remember them being in the water around 8/9 years ago. There is sadly another abandoned wreck on the Pye’s Mill moorings - been there for at least 3 months. Mermaid Ranger I think it is. Used to see it in Hardley Dyke but I guess it got kicked out of there. I suppose it will stay there until the BA remove it - sunk or otherwise.
  16. That post relates to the WRC Pegasus by the way!
  17. This is still in the same mooring position I saw it in more than a month ago, I have yet to see it out and about. (That’s not to say it hasn’t been though!) There are definitely no rails at the stern. Maybe it’s design is not appealing to people?
  18. Shame! 🤭 Agreed. Opportunist videoers we just can’t do anything about, it’s the age we live in.
  19. Just go for it, Kron has summed it up. You are never too far away from help if needed, your Skipper’s manual will have emergency numbers in it should they be needed. My trusty tide tables indicate that low water slack for your second week are around 8-9am so would be ideal for travelling south. You could return sometime over the following weekend early afternoon. Lots of possibilities. Whatever you decide to do, I hope you really enjoy your holiday and become hooked like so many of us have done.
  20. Unless you have a dog with you, don’t forget you can drop your mudweight on a number of the Broads. In the north that can be useful when it is busy, South Walsham, Salhouse, Malthouse (Ranworth) are all lovely areas. In the south use Bargate (Surlingham) or Oulton Broad. On a summer’s evening you can’t beat it.
  21. I expect you did mention it somewhere but I can’t find anywhere you quoted the dates you are going.
  22. Or also known as the Land of the wrong white crowd. A lovely country grounded, you are fortunate to live there.
  23. Can the supermarkets or whoever actually fine people? Do they have that right?
