    Wanted - Period Cabin Light Fitting

    As JawsOrca says ouch! but this maybe your chance to get a lamp which is very similar to yours, it might be even worth getting in contact with them to see if they just have a shade that you can fit to a hardwood mounting block. https://www.toplicht.de/de/shop/lampe-leuchte-und-laterne/wandleuchte/aufbauleuchten/art-deco-salonleuchte-davey Regards Alan

    Jabsco Toilet

    On a manual pump Jabsco toilet to fit a choker valve or even a new pump is not a long job, usually less than 15 to 20 minutes and you just need a screwdriver. Regards Alan

    Back To The Summer Of 1976?...

    We were the Trent and Mersey canal that year, lock gates were padlocked at 6.00pm to conserve water and passage was difficult in places, barge poles were in constant use. Water, boats and sunshine it gets no better. Regards Alan

    Mud Wherry Cast Off

    If the boat belongs to the B.A. or one of their contractors no matter who interfered with it, if it has hit other boats and caused damage their insurance company will be liable for any damage. Regards Alan

    Somerleyton Bridge Not Operational

    Sorry for the delay in posting this message, only just come onto the computer at home, it came in at 16.10 "Dear all, Further to my previous email Network Rail has informed us that Somerleyton Swing Bridge is now operational. Kind regards Tom" My guess is that if it is hot tomorrow then they will not open it until later in the day Regards Alan
