    Sealant For Boat Windows

    The frames are already on my bench being stripped, cleaned and polished! Just waiting for the new perspex to arrive now. Going for tinted.
  2. Hi all Am about to refurbish the windows on Tropez. Am interested in peoples experience/opinions with bedding/sealing Perspex into aluminium frames. What sealant did you use and how did it stand the test of time? I'll be using Arbomast BR inbetween the frames and the boat but it only comes in grey, at a push I could use this to bed the Perspex as well but would prefer black. Considering CT1 or Arbomast Autograde ( waiting to hear back from Arbo regarding suitability for acrylic and aluminium). Any thoughts? Cheers, Paul.

    Stern Only

    We have moored side on at Ranworth out of season mainly because we can't stern moor! #boats with legs ?. Other than that we can't get in when it's busy.

    Boat Survey

    Depends on the surveyor, you best bet would speak to one directly and find out exactly what checks they carry out before you hand over your hard earned cash. Good luck.

    River Wensum

    No! We had already gone back to the Northern rivers by the time we had a reply. Next time we will though.

    River Wensum

    Not sure if this will link or not, I asked the same question in June! Generally everyone said yes you can go further up, can get a bit shallow in places.

    Boat Being Untied.

    So it was your fault then? Anne does things that are my fault as well

    Boat Being Untied.

    Have just heard about a boat being untied at Gay's Staithe last night whilst people where on board! Has anyone else had this happen to them? Must have been quite scary to be set adrift whilst you are asleep.

    My Day

    Where do you shoot Griff, is it in Norfolk? Been up here a year and haven't picked my gun up once. Have almost forgotten which end to hold at my shoulder ?.

    Mud Wherry Cast Off

    Luckily nobody was hurt, maybe they could use some sort of chain in future?

    Why Does Reedham Have A Quay Ranger?

    I was referring to the original post. Maybe it was an off day then. I have always found the rangers polite and helpful.

    Why Does Reedham Have A Quay Ranger?

    We were at Reedham the other day and the ranger on duty did come out and have a look as we moored up but when it was clear we were ok he went back in. I saw him help others though, maybe it was just an off day.

    River Yare In Norwich

    We were tempted to pop in when we cruised past on Sunday. Sweet freedom was the first boat we hired.

    River Yare In Norwich

    We have an air draft of 7'2 so may have a slow run up and see if we will fit. Went under Beccles old bridge today, looks like it's had a bit of damage from that boat getting stuck the other day.
