  1. I wonder if Karl is still the 'owner'. It featured on Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners about 3 years ago. rewatched a recording of it i still have .
  2. Hi Neil, we should be onboard by Wednesday evening and heading to Loddon for the weekend, might get chance to bump into you. Paul and Elaine.
  3. Hi, Just for info, andyandsallyb no longer own Evening Star, i only know this from talking to the new owners the other week when i met them in Potter Heigham. only started talking to them from knowing the boat name and their thread mentioned above. I then found out the new owner was not only from Horbury near Wakefield in w yorks where i was born and brought up but he was the Commadore of the South Yorkshire boat club at Great Heck where a friend of mine and his mate have just moved their boats to Norfolk and all know each other well. Small wourld or what!!
  4. All this negativity against this once a year swim is really winding me up, just found what i said about this last year, if you havn't seen it don't knock it. Posted July 4, 2018 "Ok my View, i left Beccles just as the swimmers started arriving, no holdups i was in no rush to get anywhere so took it very steady watching the swimmers swimming the last 2 and 1/2 miles into Beccles well organized with plenty of Marshall boats and we could have been an extra pair eyes too if anyone got into difficulties. the last boat following said they were the last swimmers , so i could continue without worrying i may see any stragglers . yes it was well organized , not as many swimmers as planned probably but nice to see."
  5. £3 donated to forum paypal from me too for mooring fee.
  6. Is there a link to the Paypal account please.
  7. Another thanks from us too, had a great weekend, nice to meet new and old friends. See you out on the river again soon i hope. Paul and Elaine.
  8. We are on our way, left Beccles about 11.45, now past St Olaves heading towards Breydon, still early for slack water at Gt Yarmouth, will be at Ranworth this evening sometime.
  9. https://www.norfolklive.org/our-cameras/oulton-broad-wherry-hotel-hd/ There you go Neil.
  10. Not close enough for some propper boat spotting, but that looks like Cerise Lady (cambridge cabby) in the corner.
  11. Look what's just come up for sale. https://www.nya.co.uk/boats-for-sale/ernest-collins-35/ I remember it been for sale in 2004 i think it was, my dream boat, and still is.
  12. There's 2 moorings avaible at Derby's Quay in Beccles (the old Astons yard) for 30 Foot plus boats. Contact James Tubby on 07884478141 for details.
  13. I'm following this with interest, as you know i too have a Mikuni as old as yours, it's only let me down once when the glow plug required changing. If mine packs in again i may fit one of these. after 12 years i'm about to go to the boat next week to finally extend the heating into the Heads, it's always been cold in there if the door isn't left open.
