    A Serious Question For Jayfire And Wildfuzz

    You may need the bbq to dry the ground now.....

    Sommerleyton And Reedham Bridges

    I keep a 30ft twin engine boat even further up river than you suggest and I assure you it goes out to sea any time I get the time and weather, it's only a few hours from sea when it comes down to it. Luckily I can fit under reedham anytime with a quick fold down (somerleyton needs lowish water for me) and can get under haven bridge half tide or lower so pick my time if it's not working, for longer trips south when the tide streams do not suit I will go out of yarmouth when I can get under and stop at southwold overnight and take a favourable tide the next day. (it's hard with a dog mooring at yarmouth quay) I can't be bothered with lowestoft these days.

    It would help if it was open now and again, personally I wouldn't put money in his pocket.
  4. Would the BA have any info for a wild mooring? It's not their land or responsibility, could be a private land owner telling you to sod off. If you see a boat doing it go for ramming speed......

    Back on the credit card tips thing for a moment, I know if you add a bit on card at the ferry house (surlingham) it gets taken out of the till as cash and put in the tip jar which then gets divided daily (maybe weekly) between all staff divided by the hours they did that day (or week), seems a very fair way to do it to me as you never say "heres a quid for the youngster in the sink" do you.

    By car it has to be surlingham, sit by the river watching the boats go by with a beer and a spot grub, sorted!

  8. Good night, sleep tight, don't let the polar bears bite! And don't trip over your flippers and snorkal on the way to the bog.

    Stern Gland

    Online catalogues are a right pita if you don't know the proper name for something, a good old fashioned paper one is so much easier to flick through till you see it.

    Stern Gland

    Can't help on that one, mine have no greaser just water injection.

    Stern Gland

    Do you mean a rubber tube between gland and stern tube? Or the packing inside the gland? Probably Brian Wards at brundall or ASAP supplies at beccles.
  12. It's got another 2 weeks if it wishes then it can be nice and calm, don't want it as hot as it has been though.

    A Serious Question For Jayfire And Wildfuzz

    Not the professional response you are looking for I know but that sounds like a pretty responsible way to do it to me, being at tidal water level most of the riverside areas of the broads are still fairly green, once you go uphill it's another matter.

    Moorings Going South ?

    I moor near postwick viaduct on a fixed edge and don't find it a big problem as long as you use springs when tying up.

    'what's The Point Of Wasps?'

    The best thing for a wasp sting is to rub some vinegar into it as it takes away the worst of the sting straight away.
