  1. Is the Berney open for beersiness?
  2. Crampmaster... minus m.... sounds like a Dog!
  3. Turnoar


    Was Castrol “liquid engineering” promoted by ***** cats, tigers etc, or was that Duckhams? I suppose given there hasn’t been an oil crisis since the 70s could be the reason you don’t see the adverts on the telly these days? My dad used to keep the old gallon cans to put the old oil in... and pour into the odd wasps nest and set fire!
  4. 30 years ago when I worked the Bridge Inn bar it was a common request for a skipper wanting a bit of extra ballast to invite the pub patrons on a boat trip albeit a short but exciting one. Wishing all aboard a successful passage!
  5. Welcome JK and LM the Broad’s are looking up. A couple of safe pairs of cleats!
  6. Looks like a Foster 21, should be quantable so worth having an old windsurfer mast or whatever for emergencies like this, otherwise it’s turns into a mudweight to crack a nugget as some saw....
  7. Apology type 37s, you are doing a sterling job under the circumstances which I believe to be a fleet of new trains unable to perform the task due to the risk of doors opening beyond the platform where only two cars long with all the new trains being a minimum of three. An IT issue maybe.... would you believe IT? The world has gone system crazy, the self serve ticket machines are redundant to commuters like moi who won’t buy it until the train with a seat space arrives aka from the conductor, cash for when the signal isn’t strong enough. The trains are no furthers forwards than 1989, in fact it’s the same sprinter stock. Progress on the bittern line... it’s quicker by boat!
  8. Yes Dft, the river wensum adjacent to Thorpe road, type 37 Diesel engines registered to direct rail services... is this serious? Those of us who believe in being green are being fooled by the taxman!
  9. Nocando Cambridge cabby, too much carbon footprint from production of ferrocement! The only way forwards is to carry on with all of these construction methods and offset by taxation instead, this will truly solve the “problem”..knot!
  10. Strong and very long lasting... but (are we) really going soft?! Currently no means of recycling it... but possibility of using it to make concrete. Interesting, when I was a student some 30 years ago before the internet existed I was able to ascertain that the far east were recycling glass into road base as the market for glass bottled fluids was drying up (pun intended). We don't bury services in new roads retrospectively these days so the NDR could be a good pilot project. Can someone donate some Andrex to the research cause quick just in case they don't make it to the market in time! My neighbour can run it up there in his Scimitar. Sorry if I sound cynical but I can see a prospective tax regime getting laid up here. Some early grp boats are true classics, the Chris Craft Commander being one of my favourites on the fairytale side. And look how many dinky seamasters are still in existence on the broads, staple day boat fleet fodder.
  11. Any test pilots scheduled yet, be interesting to see how much fuel she would spirit away on a trip to bleydon and back! Any idea how many knots on full chat?
  12. Uh oh... PaulM.... you sound like my boss.. and his name is Paul... and his surname starts with... mmmm
  13. The first sentence of the advert doesn't accord with comments I've read! Not the renowned bit but the other 'r' word lol
  14. Just looked at the BA Members profiles, I trust Mike, Lana and Greg based on a mixture of personal knowledge and public profile to make the right decisions and therefore act in my interests. The rest well I just don’t know, their profiles seem bland not that this is a democratic consideration and given no need for votes they don’t need to try at all to win anyone’s confidence I suppose. Seems a tad stuffy in Yarr boathouses me thinks.
  15. Really interesting seeing the negative feedback on Norwich city councils diesel /petrol free Lord Mayors procession.... but its perfectly ok for 60s type 37 engines to spew pollution in Norwich station for the past year or more whilst unableio take forever to supply adequate rolling stock let alone new and hopefully cleaner rolling stock... perhaps ncc ought to set a date for a diesel free Norwich. They may have to move the train station to comply!
