  1. Hi as to answer Griffs question why? When it comes to women putting their Foot down they always Wins as she I have to obey as I've know her for over Forty Years . As to Polly I would like to say thank you as it's great been able to hear as I was Born Deaf with Ordinary Hearing Aids now with Cochlear it's beautiful to hear the Birds and Boat Engine and other things on the Broads that I've not heard since that time. A word in Griffs ear he won't need to shout at me any more but I can still Lip read so I be watching with his P & Q. lol. Andrew Cook
  2. Hi all as to seeing that beautiful Cottage in the picture that you can Hire I went to one in Catfield last year October 2018 called Violet Cottage as its Thatched Roof as well . As I do like Boating on the River but had to settle for being on Dry Land due to me having two Operations with in the Space of Three months One for my whole Left Knee replacement Two having this New Hearing Aid called Cochlear as I did want to see Griff at Sutton Staithe as he wont have to shout at me any more lol with perfect Hearing now while they where there on the Lads week but my Lady friend had put her foot down upon me going to seeing him as I really do apologise to Griff for not turning up that evening in October 2018. A part from that I've booked up again this year. 2019 Andrew Cook

    Hi all as to our Mobiles Technology are changing all the time as to having SAT NAV on our Mobiles to help keeping Speed down on Hired or Private Cruisers that have to obey around the Broads including other wonderful gadgets on our Mobiles we now have But has the Signal reception around the Broads such as theses Server like O 2 or E E or others made any improve there Signal receptions over the Years or not? Yours Andrew Cook
  4. Hi all including Ranworth Breeze for your time and trouble explaining things re Time Shares and the difference from the other thing that did give a bad publicity. I would like to thank all this participate in this topic. Andrew Cook
  5. Hi all to NBN members can they tell me is Time Sharing a Boat is Cheaper then Hiring a Boat say Twice a Year. As to what size Craft will that enable people to sharing a Craft and other factors with Sharing is concern as to Broads Ambition being kept in prestige condition may I add. Andrew Cook.
  6. As the England Cricket Team did well with India but with sad regret Alistair Cook has now retired from England Squad to concentrate with Essex Cricket Club and Family with a Farm to run. I enjoyed watching it when he was playing at Home matches at Chelmsford. I wonder if the England selectors can find a replacement No one Bats Man or No Two for that matter. I think Alistair Cook should get a Knight Hood for his Thirteen Years services to playing for England. Yours Andrew Cook
  7. Hi all I just would like to add this bit of comments being made about Health and Safety. I was on a Boat Moored up inside this Boat Yard waiting for a Crew member to join me as this Hired Boat Hit my Hired Craft Twice and Failed to Stop to which is a River Bye Law my I add to do so I got the Name of the Boat and reported to the Hired Boat Yard concerned as this Boat caused to Injured my Back and ruined my Weeks Holiday as I had to get it sorted out from my GP to sort out my Back problem . The Solicitor I got says this is a very Long Windy road to Bring theses People involved including the Boat Yard to court may I add so this had to be dropped with very good advice from my Solicitor I got. Yours Andrew
  8. I try to Keep New Year resolutions but it does not work for me why I keep on attending Hospital Appointment's as well going in this year for this Left Knee replacement at long last plus having a Cochlear Implant to be done for my hearing to be improve some time this year as then No one won't have to shout at me any more I hope? Yours Andrew Cook
  9. Hi all this year 2018 is going to be a difficult year for people either Private Boats or Hiring Yard two reason. First one the River Toll Licences is going up very steeply plus Insurance act. Two Community charges is going up very sharply in April all this must put a squeeze on our Financial resources for this Year and beyond could theses Boats suffer from lack of being Maintained each Year when it is due? Yours Andrew Cook
  10. Hi all I did not mention this have some Disabilities such as being Totally Deaf but can sleep very well on the Boat lol Two I did have Two Strokes that leaves me with a small Weakness in my Right Arm and Leg. I still can take part with the Crew what ever I can do the only thing is getting on and Off the Boat that I do need a J C B. lol. I do have a Stoma due to Cancer that can be very annoying if it Breaks either in the Day or Night I'm always been very concern on Hygiene where ever I go. I don't want any privileges but just understanding when being out on the Boat or on Dry Land. Andrew Cook
  11. I would like to add to this post. If a person is with a party of say Four or more and does not wish to burden any one else but play his or her part being on the Boat as I'm sure they would and let the rest of the crew have their holiday as well may I add. Andrew Cook
  12. Thank you London Lad for your reply
  13. Hi all can the NBN Forum answer this question about people Disabilities for me please . As to this question is all right for a person to be on a Boat with some small Disabilities as to a fit person on the on the Boat and yet they could still participate what ever they could do despite there Disabilities they may have? Or does this means they must be able body and fit to be on the Boat? that is with out discriminating any one with any Disabilities they may have? Andrew Cook
