  2. Henry Motoring Crumb put the hand brake on Min, it doesn't suite me Henry.
  3. How infuriating you are of course right with name so I am wrong yet again.
  4. This was the sad end of the "Toad Hall " Wave chief she was all wood as you can see. She was I believe an Arnott Fowler design along with some of the Brink craft when Mr. Brinkhoff was running it, also Loynes Loch Loyal class.
  5. The sheds on the other side of Loynes dyke do indeed belong to them, they were their building sheds. The sheds right down on the corner I think were W.K. Barnes which became Barnes Brinkcraft which was just around the corner and into Daisy broad, and was pwned by a Mr Brinkhoff.
  6. This is a film of my grandparents my parent and my uncle and aunt on holiday on a Robinsons cruiser Golden Eagle. This is on the utube site of that wonderful Lady Carol of Broadland Memories
  7. There used to be a boat yard in Hoveton where Fineway cruisers was called Ralph English. he had mainly day boats some of which were Brooke. He also had a cruiser Reverie unusual in that it had a reverse transom. http://www.broads.org.uk/wiki2018/index.php?title=Boat_Details&BoatId=1916&BoatHistory=2433

  9. http://www.broads.org.uk/wiki2018/index.php?title=Boat_Details&BoatId=10025&BoatHistory=16137 Hopefully the link will work, if were not to work she is called Romany ans appears to be a Robinson boat.
  10. Happy Birthday Robin. you are catching me up.
  11. When we were tenants at the Ship a car was left on our car park abandoned. I rang the Police who contacted the owner. He told them it had broken down and that he would come at the w/e to move it. At the end of that we still so we not moved no road tax may be no insurance who knows,anyway we pushed it onto the street and parked it by the bus shelter on the bus stop. Miraculously a low loader turned up a few hours later and it was gone. Lesson to be learnt speak to people all he had to do was ring me , or when he initially broke down speak tome. I of course had nothing to do with moving it as I told the Police when asked.
  12. Mine was a 1957 Standard Super 10 with an opening boot and up graded to a 1200 cc Spitfire engine and 5.5" rims. Went very well but very top heavy so it kept falling over
  13. Two methods of getting ashore at Salhouseand Salhouse 1939
  14. Hem my first job was working at A.V.Roes at Woodford and eventually ended working at a garage at the end of the runway. You may remember it Shrigleys Garage opposite Lightning mixers in Poynton. The sounds of the V bombers was just amazing, we were fitting new screens in the Vulcans.
