  4. Hi Tim, Stanley Unwin would be proud of you.
  5. Hello Steve, Welcome to the forum. Regards Alan
  6. If we are on our home moorings, its a case of going to the showers, call into the Yare for a few drinks and a meal, by the log fire if out of season. Back on the boat, it is heating on for a short while, hot water bottles to air the beds before retiring. A fleece on top of the bed keeps you toasty warm and any condensation tends to be on the top of the fleece which can be dried during the day. I tend to like all my time on the boat no matter what time of the year, you just have to dress accordingly, plenty of gloves, hats, jumpers and waterproof coats if the weather turns bad. Regards Alan
  7. Although this notice names the Reedham Bridge one assumes it will also include the Somerleyton Bridge these bridges operate as a pair of bridges.

  11. We cull all items that are not part of the boats itinerary at the season start. Space is always a problem on any boat, you have to balance what is necessary and what is overkill and leave other items as part of the owners boat kit that they bring with them and take away at the end of their allocation. Regards Alan
  12. I am surprised that Moonlight Shadow does not have life jackets that are supplied and maintained by the syndicate. On Ranworth Breeze we have 4 auto inflate life jackets, and a range of smaller sized life jackets. Regards Alan
  13. I often despair when I see people treating their pets other than just pets, carrying dogs for example when there is nothing wrong with them. Regards Alan

  18. Hello Ian. I put it down to the elastic that is across the level crossing, it twangs you into Brian Wards door. For supplies with great advice, thanks to Tanya & Nick and the forum discount why would you use another chandlers. Regards Alan
  19. When on shore power we use a 600 watt oil filled radiator (set on low) on overnight in the galley, this keeps condensation at bay and keeps the boat aired. Regards Alan
  20. Hello Malcolm, I hope the sale goes well for you. Regards Alan
  21. Hello Neil, Thank you for your reports of your travels this year, we have been with you all the way. I hope that you will continue looking in on the forum now that your holiday is over. Speedtriple idea that being a member of a syndicate that offers school shares might be a good way forward for you and your family. Regards Alan
  22. Sadly the 3 or 4 guys operating the level crossing on rotation will also be looking for jobs in the near future when it becomes an automatic crossing. Regards Alan
  23. Hello Paul, It can be down to the location that makes it difficult to moor or move off from a mooring. Areas that come instantly to mind are Stokesby on the green or in front of the pub, the 24 hour mooring just through St. Olaves Bridge. I have always had to leave the mooring at Stokesby in reverse the current tends to pin you to the moorings, likewise at St. Olaves the current always wants to push you into the bridge. Regards Alan
  24. Yes it was, we used to act as System Supervisors for them for about 20 years. Regards Alan
  25. One of our customers Massarella had a similar lightening strike quite a few years ago. The PBX was in a cupboard in the stairwell of their head office. It fried all the phones, we had network cables running through the cupboard. We had to replace the the modems, network cards in the PC's , ADSL routers and one of the network 24 way switches. We managed to get the network back up that day but BT took a couple of days to do their bit. Regards Alan
