    Someones Been A Busy Barnabee!

    The Ribs definitely worth a visit nice little mooring outside, if it is not full of big stinkies. Quite interesting climbing up through the pub from river level to street level where the bar is located.

    Closed Season Decision In The Spring 2019.

    I once saw in a Victorian recipe book a recipe for wild goose, it was a while ago but here we go. buy vegetables onions leeks carrots potatoes. Spread news paper on the kitchen table. Go and dig a hole in the garden. Peel all the veg onto the news paper, place the goose on the paper wrap it up and place into the previously dug hole in the garden, fill in the hole. Take all the peeled veg and make soup.

    Harvey Eastwood 37

    Dave is that not the one restored at Martham up in the top right corner, I seem to remember him fitting a bow thruster. If memory serves they were built on an Ocean/Broom 37 hull. Barnes Brinkcraft had one in there hire fleet for awhile (Brinks Prelude was it? ) she lays on the Repps bank in Potter. I believe Seraphina was sold by the guy who restored her but a call to MBs might give you a phone number for the guy who restored her.

    Slide Carrier

    Thank you all for your replies. Howard I have emailed video impact but with a bank holiday in the way I don't expect a quick reply. To you other nice people I am looking for a carrier to go on the bed of my Epson scanner printer to copy slides, I don't have many so don't want to spend a fortune.

    Slide Carrier

    Morning all We are moving house and my lady wife has put her foot down with a firm hand and demanded I do something with the 16mm cine film of my Fathers two world tours by banana boat. I have also found a few colour slides mainly of me as a pre teen on the Broads. Does anyone have one of those slide carriers that fit on a scanner that they would be prepared to lend to me. If any one knows of any organization or person who might be interested in the 16 mm film please contact me.

    You are most likely right Clive. A very forward thinking man, just look at the basin at the yard.
