  1. That makes it more palatable CambridgeCaddy Cheers Thanks for the info Selsie I'll PM you
  2. Cheers for the responses peeps...2K ! wowzer thats a chunk I'll just get a couple of butt hinges from Wickes All food for thought
  3. Hi All I'm seeking some advice if possible on Radar Arches as I'm looking maybe to buy a boat with one (no particualr model just yet but something like a bayliner 285) 1st question would you see it a problem having an air draft of just over 9ft to the radar arch? 2nd question if the radar arch is fixed is it expensive to have them hinged? Cheers Simon
  4. I had a Yellow M3 with a number plate B4NND ended up with 12 points on my licence so binned it A few years later the number plate featured in a daily mirror headline I wish I'd kept it

    I'll have a look at that nice one John... Talking of apps and stuff try this link its pretty good https://tides.willyweather.co.uk/ee/norfolk/brundall.html also my own river temp for any anglers or swimmers that might be interested http://catchpro.co.uk/
  6. Do a 'norfolk broads' search in google maps and the legend to the left states 'Broads National Park, Norwich NR1 1RY'...Hmmmm where is that I wonder
  7. Naughty John putting this is as a joke...albeit it works for me
  8. There's been quite a lot of chatter on this thread about angling and the interference thereof for this event. As an avid angler I support this event (not for safety as I don't care) as when it is held there are umpteen miles of undisturbed angling abound on the broads that very day...so fill your boots anglers unless that is you fancy catching something bigger!
  9. Yes Ditto that RIP. He came across so nice in the media and I had the pleasure of meeting him once (well bumping in to him). He got in a lift I was in in Dubai many years ago and I had my fishing rod with me. He was genuinely curious as to what I would be catching and where. I told him and the next day he turned up for a mooch... A really nice man condolences to his family and friends.
  10. I get the discussion about safety and shared watercourse usage and very valid it is, but the responsibility issue surely is mitigated by the fact each swimmer is signing a waiver so ultimately it is each of their own responsibility and risk
  11. A lot there Just a big boat around the med / adriatic for me.

    Snow Again

    This winter seems to have gone on forever! just checked my weather data from this time last year (saddo yes I am!) and yesterday would have been 17 today 16 and tomorrow 20.5 although it did cool down for Easter!
  14. Have a great time... I was in the Yare on Saturday before training it to Norwich...nice photos Interesting that Mike is thinking of selling up... I wonder whether Paul will take it on completely?
  15. I dont live too far from that breach and we had another one a couple of years ago even closer where we dog walk at Dutton. The T&M Canal all along this stretch has some really dodgy sides I wouldnt be surprised fi there a few more in the coming years hopefully nobody will be caught up in them!
  16. You may be right but Brundall has some specific clauses in the local plan giving weight to employment in the boat building sector and marina etc. plus another preventing new builds. However there are specific firms set-up to try and get around these clauses...so you never know.
  17. It would be an interesting planning application if they did go for residential property as new builds are purportedly not allowed
  18. Hi Oceandawn you havent lost the messages they are in your message box known as Private Messages or PMs. I asked you for some specifics privately as I didn't want to assume you would like the info in the forum section. Yes a tad confusing but look under your messages (sent items) and you will find them. If not I'll post your last reply Cheers
  19. I've had a different experience to others as mine went the other way in that; initially I put it on Find A Fishing Boat then Ebay and then Appollo Duck all to no avail! I then thought sod it and stuck it with a broker who sold it within a couple of months for more than what I would have accepted from the others. I thought that Appollo Duck was very reasonable and easy to use with good feedback however in the end it didn't sell! Ebay was a bit of a joke with idiots (tryers as previously stated) asking for silly prices and stupid questions. So I did end up paying more to sell it but but the uplift in my sale price meant that whilst I did fair worse off the boat was gone! If I had to sell again I would use Apollo Duck and test the water! and go to a broker sooner if it didnt sell. I suppose another variable is the price bracket as some markets are better at different ranges? e.g. Ebay may be better at low(ish) price bracket.

    This is an interesting topic for me being a Brundall riverside resident. I think for the previously said reasons (lack of moorings, visitor shop, riverside access etc.) that it shouldn't be labelled 'capital of the south'. I remember the riverside shop and Penny she was always very pleasant. I think in the latter years of the shop the other part concentrated mainly on angling and I think it was maybe her son (Simon?) who ran it and later opened up Brundall Angling Centre on riverside estate, it’s a shame it went bump as it was great for me being an angler. For me Brundall is just fine as it is with its laid back feel and decent amenities. It doesn’t make the most of the passing boat traffic but in essence it doesn’t need to really as the industry and villagers seem to keep things going well. We regularly frequent the Bistro and Yare plus there’s now an Indian in the village along with a really good Indian (Tamarind) only 5mins away. Very often we use the rail link into Norwich (fab city) for a mooch (pub crawl really!) so all in all it’s a great place to park the car and not have to use it while we are here.
  22. Never at the moment!! just had a quick rekkie through all my comms today and I reckon its up close to 150...I'm beginning to loathe pixels
