  1. Bear in mind a pressure washer is probably used fairly infrequently and then just chucked back in the garage without another thought, So probably better to go for the cheaper option with a similar specification, reminds me of what my mother used to say when asked how she was, she used to say I feel as though I have been ridden hard and put away wet, Not that I'm comparing my dear old mum to a pressure washer but you see what I mean
  2. Know what you mean beautiful spot but rarely available high season so grab it while you can :-)
  3. Definitely not slimming world friendly I can feel the pounds going on just looking at it
  4. Welcome Sailor, You're going to have fun that's for sure, and a mooring at Ranworth, In the height of the season the rest of us could only dream of such a thing LOL
  5. Had a chat with Steve Saturday yes they're both doing just fine and by the sounds of it lighter by the minute LOL, would have spoken with him longer but he was busy getting water and transporting it back to the boat as the main taps were not on in case of freezing, and by God it was cold that day the wind could nearly cut you In two, Said we would spake again soon when I Get properly back on the water (Still things to do)
  6. Been there done that twice fantastic view but an exhausting climb, if I can't do it any more I know I'm Getting Old or there is no Space to moor the boat which is the more likely eventuality
  7. The first and last time we'd ever been under Potter-bridge that was the side we went from, and collected four of five strangers to put the boat far enough down in the water to get under the bridge, happy days
  8. We are in the process of having new gas central heating fitted and chucking out the old night store heaters which have been in the bungalow 28 years and now costing on direct debit £250 per month and they want to put the price up to just over £300. With the dual fuel allowance and the new heating system, I should be spending only about £100 per month, as for the boiler were going for a multipoint and fitted by a plumber friend who really knows his stuff, So hopefully I will have more money left to spend on that floaty thing in Norfolk
  9. What a great story, we hired Lady Ursula from Sanderson's in 1978, they said next time we came we could hire the more up-to-date Sanderling's, being of a similar size to their Lady class, of course, there Is a larger one called the sandpiper of which I know of one in excellent condition and still residing on the Norfolk Broads.
  10. Welcome Paul, sounds a lovely yacht hope the restoration/recommissioning goes well, and hope to see you on the water soon regards Ted
  11. Just remember when they closed it looked like no hope of them being available for mooring again, at least now we know that they will reopen probably not this season but hopefully next, so if coming from the north towards Beccles we will have to a hang a right and use the Bernie arms mooring instead, hey ho such is life.

    That's right Jeff not forgetting a good meal and a bottle of vino and yes a good phone signal very important as us self-employed need to keep receiving the work so we can afford these little or not so little luxuries LOL
  13. I agree that wild moorings and peace and quiet are definitely the best, but obviously, since they did all this re-profiling we have reeds rather than grass (so what ) you can still land with care, difficult part is when you're single-handed not so easy but with crew and a bit of forethought not too difficult, look at what the sailing boat do when wanting to hoist or drop sail they will come into the wind and the riverbank to drop or hoist sail, the fact that they made the bank into a step will help other than just running into reeds, anyway this season I'm going to give it a go, might need one of those petrol Whirly things is to clear the reeds a bit

    These 12 V gadgets can be bought on eBay 12V Car Electronic Ultrasonic Pest Control Repeller, Spiders Rats Mice, I already use a 250 V one in the boat, which Seems to work for spiders, so am buying a 12 V one when not plugged into the Shore power.
