    Internal Wood Varnishing

    He’s having a look at it this week: we just want a superficial fix for now and then have an overhaul later :)
  2. As suggested by a few I thought I would start a specific thread for those of us with a wooden Broom - Ours is Zephyr: a Captain, kept in the Stalham Westshed. We still have work needing to be done on her but the issue is that every time we go to the boat we then decide life is too short and take her out to enjoy the freedom. Over the coming months (maybe years) we want to do the internal varnishing, replace al the curtains, get cushions for the outdoor seating and maybe put heating in for the one that was crudely taken out (also maybe an electric loo etc etc)

    Internal Wood Varnishing

    Just do and tired, scratch and bit bare in places: ideally looking for a touch up before the full shebang :) we may try and tackle a few bits between us..

    Internal Wood Varnishing

    Morning All Have been having some great weekends aboard, SO lucky with the weather. Each weekend we think let's do some work to the boat, but then think better of it and potter along the river. Has anyone had any experience of a local company or person to do some light sanding and varnishing of internal woodwork. Zephyr is based in Richardsons Stalham WetShed, so someone local to there would be ideal Best Gavin.

    BA And Toll Contravention

    WOW - BA must have lots of time on their hands to walk round the Stalham Wetshed Since we bought Zephyr literally changing the name and details of ownership has been tricky - last week I called BA to say "look I need to pay for the Toll - can I just do it over the phone etc" no it was not possible as we are still not registered as the owners... but they were super helpful etc. I arrive at the Private Wetshed at our mooring - which is inside, under cover: to find slapped on the boat a Contravention notice: It makes no sense, been trying to pay (can't understand why they won't take my money" and why are BA going inside a private mooring to do this?
  9. Hi All, totally gutted but we are going to have to pull out unfortunately, really gutted but a crappy neck injury means I would be zero fun at the moment :( Ineas hoping it would be pain free in time for a weekend of fun on the water, but alas no. Have a great time and enjoy the weather: poor Zephyr shall be in the wet shed this weekend. Apologies

    Lion At Thurne

    Simply Brilliant A great, somewhat wet, of course, Easter afloat. After fitting Zephyr with a windscreen wiper motor and blade (the end result was less than perfection: pretty rubbish water clearing results really) we moored this evening at Thurne and visited the newly re-opened Lion. I have to say the results are fantastic, absolutely brilliant: great decor, furnishings, phenomenal service and excellent food. Genuinely cannot recommend highly enough: our regular favourite is the White Horse at Neatishead: to find out tonight, it’s the same team: massive congratulations. Showers and amusements being brought back to life over the next few months: Great work.

    A warm welcome, born in Norfolk, moved to London, now have a boat on the Broads and it’s heaven: out this weekend: blustery but lovely and warm: peace and quiet (shame on Hotel Wroxham though: poor Max, Labrador, not allowed inside at £20 a mooring in winter, they might want to rethink that, so had a pint in the accommodating, dog friendly, Kings ahead instead) but whatever, a lovely weekend. You’re only in your 50’s. Dad has lived here all his life and only just caught the ‘I just buy a boat bug” at 72 :)

    Chilly Start To Zephyr In The Water

    Our first Christmas on the Broads was a success :) It was in all honesty magical. (Minus a fan belt episode, but we forgive that) there was snow, hail, winds and rain but not on Christmas Day. It was made even more the merrier by the arrival of Maggie (as an elf) and Steve (Santa himself) on Christmas morning. We got to meet a few out and about and had several a merry moment at the White Horse at Neatishead. Getting back into he Wetshed was also easier the second time around, we're learning.
