    Thumbs Up For The BA

    Just general advice on getting the boat straighter when mooring alongside... and yes I think it may have been the younger chap!

    Thumbs Up For The BA

    I was out in my boat for the first overnighter at the weekend and ended up mooring at Reedham. Having secured my ropes the BA operative stationed there came along and asked if everything was OK which I replied yes. He then asked me if I was OK with my ropes in which I also replied yes, so he wandered off to the next boat to help them tie up. I wondered if I'd have asked him was anything wrong with my mooring lines whether he would have said yes, so I went over and had a word. He came back and educated me with a better way of tying up and not only that but a bit of further free advice. Firstly, I didn't know the BA put personnel permanently on these types of moorings and secondly what a nice pleasant chappie he was enjoying his work. So, a big thumbs-up from me and although I know some of you will say that’s what we pay our tolls for, I say value for money.

    Dockless Bikes In Norwich!

    I agree the UK seems to have a more hostile booze culture that likes these mindless acts of vandalism or violance!

    Opening Day Reports

    Yeh I've found at least 3 biting critters around. Mozzies are the worst for me as I have some sort of reaction when I get done, they end up like boiled eggs. There's also some blackish delta winged jobbers about 5mm that give a good account of themselves and there’s the minute buggers that are all over the place at the moment, certainly in Cheshire and Norfolk that give a little nick that hours or a day later start itching like billyOh! I’ve been mullered recently but I must say the Cheshire mozzies are the SAS of the fly world and the size of Crane flies

    Trains

    Plenty of enthusiasts about and the crossing staff were very good with quick opening and closing and on the plus side our train to Norwich was the best we have had 👍
