  1. My experience of gate valves is very similar to yours at least in domestic environments on the boat we use lever valves especially for the raw water intake. Regards Alan
  2. Hello Roy, I am sorry to hear that your boating days may be over, sadly it comes to all of us at sometime unfortunately. No doubt you have made the most of your boating over the years. It was good to meet you at Loddon. Regards Alan
  3. Hello Chris, when we were moored on the Northern Broads, we would often more outside the hotel being as there is hardly any mooring in Wroxham if you can not get under the bridge. We would also moor on the moorings for the Petersfield Hotel in Horning before it closed down. Personally the only time I was hit by a boat at Brammerton, luckily I was aboard at the time and Richardson's paid for the repairs during our winter service period. Regards Alan
  4. My favorite locations on the Southern Broads are, Brammerton Common, Surlingham, Rockland St Mary and Beccles. On the Northern Broads, Stokesby, Ranworth, Womak Staithe and moored outside the Wroxham Hotel. Regards Alan
  5. Sadly the place now is not what it was, yes there are a lot of boats, some high end, yachts etc put the place even in the height of summer where we had two of of our weeks is almost empty by comparison. boats mooring charges are for 8 months only for electric and water if you require it for the rest of the year it is by negotiation. Several craft were submerged during the 2010 floods with marina staff only being able to cut the lines. I hate to think of the insurance repercussions. because of the downturn after the speed ban the marina had to consolidate to try and maintain their income hence the new buildings and the smaller clubhouse bar. Regards Alan

  7. Yes I have stayed in Windermere Marina Village, it was buzzing when we bought our two time share cottages in 1997 you had all on getting into the pool, the bar and getting a meal. By 2006 /7 that was all over and when we last went in 2010 even the pool was closed. Regards Alan

  9. You could see if there is a room available at the Premier Inn, I doubt you would get much cheaper. Regards Alan

  11. Hello Helen, We have a couple of fan heaters aboard Ranworth Breeze also a small oil filled radiator that we use overnight in the galley for keeping the boat aired during the out of season weeks. A fleece on top of the bedding keeps the condensation at bay and this can be dried during the day. Regards Alan
  12. Hello Woodie welcome to the forum. Regards Alan

  14. Hello batrabill, The speed restriction had nothing to do with Sandford, it was perceived over 30 year that there was an issue with speedboat and jet skies in the last 5 years prior to the introduction of the ban. Even though the lake was policed the quango would not be swayed by public opinion over 20 years plus of campaigning against the ban. Regards Alan
  15. Hi Neil, I think you will find it was Burt Lancaster who was a former circus acrobat. Looking at Kirk Douglas films lists I had forgotten how many films he had stared in. A sad loss, there are not many of what I would call stars around these days. Regards Alan
