  1. Calling all Bishy fans, friends and collegues. One year ago this month was our first day at River Green. The support and good will given over the year has been incredible. We would like to invite you all to celebrate with us. Join us for a BBQ, Free 10min Bishy taster trips and games on the green (we got swingball and other games 😃). This is a Free event for our birthday, our way of giving a little something back, a thank you to those who have been a part of our journey and hopefully we will get a chance to meet some new friends too, all are welcome. As we won't be charging for BBQ it wo
  2. If you want to know about the GRP spitfires then talk to GB replicas in Catfield, they are very good at what they do.
  3. Been away for a few days, just come back, my comment was indeed tongue in cheek, sarcasam is hard to type sorry if i irritated, truly not my intention.
  4. All this free info dished out online, I dunno, some of us are still trying to earn a living!!
  5. simply enjoy the the rivers for a few consecutive days of pure relaxation, can't even say I have had a whole week withought working for the last three years. So yeah I would like to be able to enjoy what all you boaters get to enjoy.
  6. Colin, to rent a birth just to land your dinghy does sound a little extream, but i do understand your issue, if its ever of any use you are welcome to motor down to Bishy corner and leave your dinghy with me if ever your car is further that way. If you rent a space you might find others use it, you may well be happy with that, but issues could develop with dinghy's swinging on one rope rubbing against private owners boats and leaving or removing paint. My end there is a certain green and yellow dinghy that sports 'Bishy red' paint on its wooden rubbing strake, I moved that dinghy mos
  7. Hi Vaughan, it would not be my 1st choice to keep a private boat, but the price offered was/is exeptionaly competitive for TSA residents, they did have enquiries from owners.
  8. Colin, last time i had a meeting on the subject the building had still not changed ownership from Broadland council to TSA town council, but that said I have not had a meeting for some months. I would very much like a room to use though, the Gazebo is great when the sun shines but the fun stops with wind and rain.
  9. I have no further semi insider gossip on the private mooring, last i heard from last year the plan is still to go ahead. Im not sure on the current hold up. Rest assured 'aesthetically pleasing' is a phrase that the town council are reminded of regularly (often by me) and is constant reminder that you have to choose your words very carfully when talking to the EDP as they know how to stir up and sensationalise for their gain.
  10. £60 per hour and 16hrs of man time? Now I know I am doing something seriously wrong, I should only be working one or two days a week on that rate.
  11. a couple of disposable nappies under the engine are very good at absorbing the odd drips of oil and water that build up.
  12. Haha, sorry i did not know the price I just used to fit them! never had the need for such a thing since self employment
  13. It's been some 11 years since my time but we made custom fridges on Oysters, really quite simple, a GRP box, lagged on the outside with closed cell foam, a compresser mounted remotely, cooling plate and thermostat inside the fridge, door with door seal. Look into Frigomatic/Frigoboat systems, they were pre-gassed and easy to assemble. Assuming they are still making them.
  14. I have never looked that closely at it to say Seamaster or not but yes that sort of size and shape.
  15. There is another Liveaboard boat down, one of the ones just outside comissioners cut. Not sure when it went down as its been a few weeks since my trip round. Cabin cruiser with the cockpit boarded round.
