  1. Morning, I use READLY, only £7.95 a month and get thousands of mags per month. Includes PBO also fishing, diy, canals etc. Nigel
  2. Off subject slightly, during lock down I have been watching utube vlogs on the canals. My question is , a canal wide enough for two craft but only one towpath. How did the boats ,before motorised, cross ? Nigel
  3. Marshmallow, does this mean as I am not allowed to sail on the left, in your eyes, I cannot visit Loddon due to trees blocking my way ? What then happens to all the sail craft in marinas up stream ? Nigel
  4. A big problem I have is motoring up the Chet to Loddon and there are a couple of bends where I have to motor on the wrong side (mast up) . Why ? Overhanging trees. A lot of hirers forget to take in the height of my mast Nigel
  5. What makes me curious, only 10% of test results are positive covid , what are the other 90% ? considering one is supposed to have symptoms to get a test done. Also couriers are photographing deliveres now instead of signatures so what happens to the photos? Nigel
  6. Essential items whilst shopping ? Bread ,milk, NOT chocolate etc . BUT as much alcohol as you want !!! ??? Koolwabbit
  7. Sad to here Edgar who had just retired as a broads ranger . Loddon was his beat for years and he was a very helpful and considerate ranger. Koolwabbit
  8. My theory, coronavirus causes death. Not sure but i believe the cause of death is due to difficulty to breathe. Is it not possible that air polution is the real danger. Wuhan , London, New York, Italy, Spain are all high risk polution areas. where as Germany has a very low polution record. Maybe that is why we are being told to stay indoors. Maybe covid19 is as simple as flu but because it attacks the lungs and we are all affected by air polution the death rate is high. Just a thought, Nigel
  9. What can I do ? Found something I want (Boat item) on Gumtree. Won't be able to collect for maybe 12 weeks. Do I pay now or hope seller will reserve for said period ? Koolwabbit
  10. Oulton broad to beccles is the way. Bus to loddon every 30 min on a Sunday, X21 and X22 take 18 min. Believe you can get a bus + rail ticket. Better still travel to Norwich to loddon . Lot better than OB.
  11. You could give Pacific Cruisers a call .I believe their fleet all have replacement engines (japanese) so might have an idea of labour cost. Very friendly brothers. Worth a call. Nigel
  12. Simples .Length of rope , tie a loop on end then use as a step ladder. I learnt the hard way. Koolwabbit

  14. Hi I thought it was illegal to find drones over built up areas. Koolwabbit
