  1. You need a bigger bilge pump! Or more waterproof elastoplasts! paul
  2. Yes Neil, Zimbi has a telescopic aerial mast you saw it a while ago I got it from Norwich Camping at Blofield I only take the aerial off the mast for the winter otherwise it stays on all season because it collapses to lower than the cabin height. Now have you put the stainless steel tiles beside the cooker to protect the woodwork? paul
  3. Got one of them in the spare room. paul Okay it is only a model I made.
  4. If you are looking for a chalet on Riverside, try Herons View really recommend it. We usually have a week there while preparing the boat for the season. But be quick it books quickly. paul
  5. I miss read the title. I thought it was lapping lulls. I wonder if a half inflated fender a the water line would help but it would probably bang against the bow and sound louder. paul
  6. Moored there 2 weeks ago, for the last time. It doesn't seem the same without Alan & Muriel and £20 a night is not worth it for us, although we did charge everything up even if it didn't need it! paul
  7. The notices on the approach to Sutton Bridge say work starts on the 29/9 for 4 weeks. That was on Sunday (15th) about 8:00am. That's the 3rd change to start date that I know of, so anybody's guess is probably a good one. paul
  8. We came back on Sunday and the roadside displays showed work, would start on the 29/9 for 4 weeks. So that has changed 3 times I know of. We are next down on the 6/10 so will either use the A1/A47 or A1/A14/A11. All 3 variants seem to take the same time just different distances. paul

    You cannot donate to a charity and expect the money to go to the cause they are supposed to help.. The money is chanelled into headline winners. Fund raising is now a very well paid job! for some. A local hospice ( small) has now a fund raiser so a national charity will offer paperwork support BUT they take a cut of the funds raised. Not from me anymore. paul
  10. Wish we had known Ian, would have hitched a lift. We had to go to optical express, Jill had a problem with her new eyes. paul Ps see at cove tomorrow.
  11. Oulton tomorrow, I think. Thats where we were heading today then discovered it was Sunday and powerboat racing was on. paul
  12. Ian it was us waving from WRC, won't be stopping here again, not enough arms and legs to pay for it!!! paul & jill
  13. If you have WiFi access for both phones download (free) Smart switch Connect them through it and wait about an hour and it is all done for you. paul
  14. Brass is not strong enough to prevent any form of movement it needs at least 3 contact points to try and stop movements. Any trace of vibration will not be dampened by brass. Fixing that joint will show where any tightness is. paul
  15. If that's a brass top support bar it will oscillate counter to the shaft rotation, change it for a steel one. Then you will find out if any mis-alignment of the shaft is tightening up rotation, the mount will shudder1 paul
