  1. Just a thought, as drones have cameras and the person operating that drone is seeing said person with shot gun pointing at it, I think the person flying the drone may want to move away very fast Before he gets blasted out of the sky.
  2. The only way to take part in all of the interesting things is to buy a boat, unfortunately this may have a detrimental affect on your financial and mental faculties, I personally think that boat ownership is the only way to go but then I'm not exactly cash rich or mentally stable so what the hell do I know he said gibbering
  3. Yes welcome from me to, I also prefer the Northern Broads especially now the silly season has come to an end, hopefully for you it's fourth time lucky with your next boat, regards Ted
  4. Hi John, at least you've got the right boat you can go under all bridges but one of them you will need to clench your buttocks,enjoy and make sure Millie has a life jacket, Regards Ted
  5. God I hope so having been hit by one of their boats in the daylight.
  6. I had this problem just over a year ago, unfortunately you can't replace a Three way fridge which operates on gas/electric when you have your safety certificate done they will have a record of the last fridge you had if it was gas and still working you can keep it, but if you change it it has to be 12 V compressor only, and yes they are very expensive, but there's always a possibility that a second hand one will come up for sale, good hunting.
  7. I just had to jump in on this discussion, I bought a Triumph Tiger Cub together with a Francis Barnett in bits both in the same boxes got the Francis running but never ever got the triumph running looked a nice bike when I'd completed it but for the life of me couldn't get the bastard to run,I personally prefer Norton's happy days
  8. Welcome to the forum, as others have said an excellent choice of boat and I talk from experience as I myself am on my second Hampton Safari which is the much rarer mark 4, and yes mine is hydraulic drive engine in the rear makes it a lot quieter in the main cabin, I would also like to see pictures when you get her uncovered, regards Ted
  9. It's when you stop earning money, and her indoors finds you lots of things to do, I'll just keep working LOL
  10. Actually just as easy to do on a boat, I have done these and have them with a salad the next day, have always found that my boat oven will reach a good temperature similar to the one at home, as I follow slimming world I tend to use low-fat sausages I have made the Scotch eggs with chicken Italia sausages skins removed flattened out into a circle and then wrapped round a semi-hard-boiled egg dipped in beaten egg and then breadcrumbs get it right so the yoke isn't too hard and they are delicious as for breadcrumbs tend to buy them in the packet far easier on a boat
  11. Yes welcome from me to,I bet the sound of a seagull engine would take you back to the 1960s, like a piece of music it does have that effect
  12. The worst experience I had with a fisherman was at How Hill a few years back, the river was very busy and a lot of boats coming down the ant So had to keep well to the right, unfortunately just past the end of the mooring is there was a fisherman with his line out and I had no choice but to hug the bank which resulted in a face full of maggots and verbal abuse even though he had young children with him, the idiot didn't have the sense to see how busy the river was and personally I had nowhere else to go there was me going up river and three abreast coming down but that foul mouth bad tempered fishermen couldn't see it (rant over)
  13. Well just married very cosy, we married in 72 as well, but didn't go on the Broads until 78, our honeymoon was spent in a tent we couldn't afford to rent a boat, But now 44 years later and boat owners separate cabins are in order (Not so cosy) such is life LOL
  14. Welcome Simon, you post your questions I'm sure somebody on here will have the answers, happy boating
  15. Hi, what time are the moorings on the island reserved from on Friday, I was thinking of arriving about midday if that's okay.
