  1. My boat has been up for sale since September and has had more viewings and now under offer since lock down!
  2. How much I miss socialising pubs and restaurants (but saved a fortune) How much I missed fishing but back out now so big plus there How little I've missed football, no season ticket for me next year and about 30 days back to socialise and fish
  3. This will interesting to a lot of people. An update from the Angling Trust... as yet not been on gov.uk but this will be reputable:- We are delighted to announce that the Government's much anticipated new statement on travel and sport instead now reads "From today (13 May 2020) people in England can spend more time outdoors and enjoy a wider range of activities for any length of time, subject to social distancing rules."

  4. Here's a question...is visiting your own private mooring to check on your boat etc. allowed if it is where your 2nd home is? p.s. I won't be going as CBA driving but just thought it was a worthy question.
  5. I cant seem to find anything about overnighting was that in somewhere other than the PDF?
  6. Thats where I got my post info from as you say nothing about boating but surely thats then left to interpretation and access. If I wanted to travel down and go out my boat I don't see that I would be breaking any laws?
  7. There is no distance rule in England we can as from Wednesday travel any distance and no ruling on returning times
  8. I think by the fact you don't have to stay at home and you stay alert you're ok with most things. So as long as you're not reliant on others for access then fill yer boots
  9. That's a great accolade ST. šŸ‘
  10. We had a really good laugh at that bar and about 10 of us drank it dry of champers šŸø... A great experience šŸ‘
  11. Fairly high in south side but nothing alarming and dropping now
  12. I'll have that pint anytime and yes keep on rambling lšŸ‘
  13. Thats not an answer to the question!
  14. Is it possible to set a forum or a thread to be ignored so that they don't pop up in unread content? I've had a look around but nothing seems obvious Cheers
  15. It seems in and out with the service provider has been ok mostly but I'll have a ganders at weekend... Bivvied up at a lake now šŸ˜²
  16. Do you mean the brundall one as its fine
  17. It may also be of benefit to know that the Brundall Boat Show is on the 16th May
  18. Seems OK now but I've not done anything
  19. I was driving from Cheshire to Brundall on Wednesday night and had a full tyre deflation on the A14 about 5 miles from Brampton, this was 8:30pm. I managed to make my way off the A14 to a pub after stopping twice and putting air into the tyre. I then used the inflation stuff that comes with the car instead of a spare. This just oozed out all over the car park. So I rang the asistance line and this is where the fun started. I could go on and on here but to keep it short their solution was to lift the car and take to a secure compound, get me a taxi to Brundall and then with some hope put the fixed car in a dedicated delivery van and deliver it to me at Brundall. How much would that of cost (I'm talking generally as it wouldn't have cost me a penny as its all covered!). Anyway the driver came to take the car at 11pm but there was no sign or telephone call (that I should have received) of anyone coming to collect me. I waited half an hour and the finally got through to the emergencey line, there had been some mix up and nothing yet had been arranged so I couldnt let the driver take it. Instead I spoke to the pub people who were really friendly and made a room up for me. After which I rang the assistance line and said why can't they just get a mobile tyre company to fix my tyre where it was. Eventually at 11 the next morning thats what they did... Can you believe all that for a flat tyre!! I've spared you all the phone calls and angst! but surely their solution is far worse for the client, the planet and costlier than a spare.
  20. I fished all day today on the Yare and the level kept coming up for a good while after the tide turned on the ebb. Didnt get too high though. Fishing was good but dont tell anyone
  21. A good number of years ago I used to work for McVities making Jaffa Cakes and as well as our own branded version we made a number of other brands for well known supermarkets. We did use a different ingredients mix so it could be classed as unique but the difference was that slight you would never know...however the price ranges on the shelves were quite dramatic!
  22. You may or may not be aware of the proposed works on the Hoveton Great Broad and how it directly affects fish movement and spawning. There is a new update here for you to digest: - https://basgonline.org/hoveton-great-broad-update-nov-2019/?fbclid=IwAR10b6p4IFnv1ox3WRUKfHcGPrPAz2xc4-DNP537_4Hd_DgUQOhDr6xHM1Q
