  1. We visited the café three weeks ago, it was perfectly usable, clean and tidy. That artists impression is an awful looking building, in my opinion.
  2. Threads never drift off topic, they naturally expand.
  3. We had a pump out at Sandersons but had to wait a while as they were doing their own boats first, not a problem for us. I had a walk around the area whilst waiting, and on a pole was a planning application from Sandersons. It involved demolishing the boat shed, and building a new one, and erection of (I think it was four) four houses. I asked the chap if he thought they'd get permission and he was hopeful. The boats they had in looked fairly clean, and they were cleaning the exterior as well as interior of them.
  4. I was surprised how quiet the waterways seemed when we travelled last week, for long stretches we saw no other boats, probably down to the lovely weather! That said, come Saturday it seemed that it was a nutters paradise, speeding boats (not just hire ones) stag/hen parties with oafs diving into the water from the roofs of the boats, and many unable to take the helm without a bottle of alcohol in one of their hands! We just stuck to the speed limits, and kept a careful watch out.
  5. Well, we kept an eye on each other, travelled at the advised time, kept between the posts and really enjoyed the crossing. In our week on the Broads (finished this Monday) almost everyone we met was very helpful and we made sure we returned the help to others. A shout out to Richardsons as on the third day the engine wouldn't start, they were on the scene within the hour and fixed the fault, a short circuit on the battery. We enjoyed our week so much that earlier today we booked for next year!
  6. My first car was a Triumph Herald, and it had the front end of a Triumph Vitesse. A useful site is www.askmid.com, where you can find if a car is currently on the insurance database. If you're involved in a car crash it's particularly useful.
  7. We're hiring two weeks today from Stalham, but after reading this, and similar, threads will be heading south. Counting the days!
  8. It was nice to see Liverpool and Barca fans getting along so well the other night, Barca fans were even kind enough to give Liverpool fans directions to Anfield!
  9. "The" Tigers, no Allam tripe thank you very much.
  10. Many thanks, we'll certainly let you know how we get on, can't wait for June to come.
  11. We're visiting the Broads, for the first time ever, in mid-June. We're both approaching 60 years of age but I've always wanted to have a boating holiday on the Broads and have finally got round to visiting. We're hiring from Richardsons in Stalham, and I've read this thread with interest, and have watched several YouTube videos including nearly all of the excellent and informative Captain's Blog ones. I fully intended to cross Breydon Water and will still do so. I'll be following the helpful tips on this thread and am really looking forward to it, but will also treat the waters with the respect they deserve. Steady as she goes seems to be the overriding message.
  12. The Mondeo may be, as you put it, a mobile skip, but that on the trailer looks like a very rare and very desirable Ford Corsair estate. :-)
