  1. Wash is the disturbance left behind a vessel. Have another look at that picture
  2. A huge ammount of work is required if we ar all going to drive electric, the least of which involve range and cost. The grid simply couldn't deal with it ! "The UK is unprepared for the expected surge in demand for power from the electric car revolution and could face blackouts and power cuts unless action is taken now, an official report warns." https://inews.co.uk/news/politics/electric-car-surge-exclusive-power-cuts-national-grid-overload-1366304
  3. So is that 'Members only' - or not ?
  4. Were we not previously told that this thread had been moved to 'members only', while the mods considered it ? Has it now been returned to the main forum ? If so, I've missed any notification to that effect . It's getting more and more confusing !
  5. It would appear ( as far as I can tell) that Tom is not a 'Full member. Therefore he will be unable to see posts on this thread, now it is in full members only. Unless of course he has been granted exemption from '50 posts'.
  6. I have just revisited every post on this thread and also am unable to detect the slightest hint of a breach of TOS or abuse . I can only conclude that the majority of the views expressed run contrary in some way to those of the Moderation team or that pressure has been applied rfom somewhere else. In either case it's regrettable at best.

  10. https://www.edp24.co.uk/features/wherry-albion-the-norfolk-wherry-trust-and-roy-clark-1-6450823?fbclid=IwAR3P0pOPcKopmX5Sqxmykdgia0CBac4CpGhxy7wO8BAXL0-yXHVqq5sxyzY If you don't already have a copy of this definitive book in your collection, buy it now. It's been out of print for many years and is a thoroughly good and interesting read.
  11. Another classic example of why the BSS should not be simply advisory but mandatory with respect to 'mains' installations !
  12. There is certainly money to be made out of firewood. It would also help with restoring the cultural heritage and true Broadland landscape.
  13. 45 MINUTES ???? On more than one occasion I'v been asked at the Upton basin " where's the pub then ?" When told its about a 5 minute walk my reply is grreted with a horrified " WE'VE GOT TO WALK ?". They then turn around (eventually ) and head off to somewhere where walkin isn't part of the itinery .
  14. One of its attractions .....
