    Boats For Couples

    I have to agree with the majority of folk on here , if they are available the 'Swans' are ideal. Totally agree about the walk round bed and in this instance with the 'Swans' they do have a walk round bed. Unlike Brooms Captain that purports to have a walk round bed which is anything but. Only the fittest should apply to try the bed out on them. A few days training on The Matterhorn might be a good idea. Longer ropes that is another plus and has been said you can pull them both to the bow or stern , which ever is your preference and get off holding both and Bobs your Uncle and Fanny's your Aunt. (am I allowed to say that) Over the years I have taken over the helm once we had come along side , and then I sat at the helm while hubby always did the ropes. If you are wondering , have you ever seen me tie a rope?

    Good god - our heating has been going for weeks now , yes heated radiator the lot but we do live facing Siberia on the East Coast. Always an overcoat colder up here.

    Yes absolutely lovely for the folk in the house looking at the fire but when you live next door and all that smoke is blowing your way I can assure you that it is anything but lovely. Thank goodness that our immediate neighbours now have got rid of their open fires.
  5. Alan, so so sorry. Words are not enough. God bless you.

    Hoseasons Brochure Is No More

    Just remember if cancelling your holiday for any other reason than that on their "serious ' list they take (as we found to our cost) the full deposit even though we cancelled.nearly 8 months before the holiday. They charged us £250. Never again. Go straight to your boat yard to book. Richardsons were very understanding and refunded all monies.

    I hope you are careful, I thought you were not allowed to touch boilers unless you are registered Gas Safe.
