    St Olaves Moorings

    And if you go the other way along the flood bank and through the woods you can get to the decoy tavern with only the small back road, it's just on a mile in total and a fantastic walk back when dark.

    Mooring Up.

    This bit copied from my post in St.Olaves thread. "I have a set of hard plastic pipes that slot together with a rope through for either use as a fenderboard horizontally or from the handrails vertically for places like reedham with it's concrete edge, once folded down they sit in the lazarette nicely over the rudder gear along with dinghy oars and broom/mop. " And this bit added. They are open ended so don't float and run down to about 18" below the chines so perfect for reedham. (in fact that is where I made them for)

    The fishermans only ever opens for the main season and then it seems to open grudgingly and shut very keenly.

    Not a great loss there then as the last few visits have been most disapointing, at least you can have a bbq there though. I have a set of hard plastic pipes that slot together with a rope through for either use as a fenderboard horizontally or from the handrails vertically for places like reedham with it's concrete edge, once folded down they sit in the lazarette nicely over the rudder gear along with dinghy oars and broom/mop. 63mm mains water pipe has a nice 2" bore that you can slot a bit of stainless tube into but you need to turn one end down slightly for an easy fit.

    I've used the burgh castle moorings as a wild mooring a couple of times since it's been closed with no problems but will be well overgrown I would guess and the power is definately off at the post. The piling at the fishermans leaves a lot to be desired as fenders tend to sit in the gaps and leave you banging. St.olaves moorings are fine. Are you coming in from sea or down from the northern rivers?

    How Many Electric Posts?

    No problem Trevor, just wait until the gauge at the bridge says 8'2" and fold down to 8'8" and go under with a bit of clearance, been under several times with no probs.

    Is there any rule about fishermen at neatishead? I thought it was a parish staithe not ba mooring as it's the parish council that supply the water points there. (I am probably wrong though)

    Don't go coastal what ever you do, I recon taking my mum for a pub lunch in southwold last year cost me £150 for a pint and a chip butty! Started from reedham and ended up in the bell at st.olaves for the evening. Great day though and she loved it.

    Bailey Bridge At Southwold

    Thanks for that, I'm heading down there in a couple weeks so will need to be moored on the southwold side then. (or can barriers be climbed over?)

    Chrome Plating

    It wants polishing up first, if you chrome plate a turd you get a shiny turd but you won't see your face in it (unless it looks like mine in which case it will be fairly similar).

    I seem to recall a news report from Australia a year or so back when some had "sustained injuries not compatible with living", after rolling around the floor laughing my gruesome bits off at someone else's misfortune I thought what is wrong with good old fashioned DEAD/DECEASED/EXPIRED/CEASED TO BE/EX-PERSON/PINING FOR THE FJORDS?????

    One For Griff

    Do your resin trick with that and rub it back and it would look cracking.
