  1. If anyone wants sanctuary from all this boat cleaning going on, I'll be onboard New Nyx from about midday. :-) Guaranteed "free from boat cleaning" zone.
  2. I need the bottles to take up less space. Either way if I buy some bags do I need to buy a pump or do they come with one?
  3. Do they come with a pump or do they need a vacuum cleaner? Thinking of getting some myself.
  4. Just for the moment a cat is a responsibility I don't want. Maybe after I've a week or two chilling I may feel differently.
  5. Nope, the next door neighbour is looking after the cat. The long term future for him will be established when I know more as to what is going to happen to Rufus.
  6. I understand that Corsica 2 was sold too. Can't think who would buy that one. :-)
  7. I hope to meet up with lots of you. I am on the boat for about 3 weeks, short break back in Harlow then on the boat for the summer. Well that's the plan. Ever the optimist.
  8. Yeeeee Haaa ... See you there Griff !
  9. Bit of thread drift here, but it looks like Herbert Woods has a horse in the Grand National ! :-)
  10. How about you recommending to him that he joins the forum, I reckon he'd pick up a lot of business doing that.
  11. It is so difficult to come up with an itinerary for somebody else, especially for a first timer. I think the one you have chosen sounds very good but may I add some suggestions. Wroxham is a good shopping venue, and plenty of take-away options, but personally, I'd head further upstream, under the bridge to Coltishall.. Then Coltishall to Wroxham (short stop) and on to Horning. If no mooring available at Horning, double back to Salhouse. Generally speaking, that would be more or less where I would go to get the balance between cruising and relaxing.
  12. They're the big greasy things that make a lot of noise and push the boat along !
  13. Grendel, Cats are better than dogs for this purpose. If you have a dog, you have to take it out and walk with it, a cat you can just let out and it will do the walk for you.
  14. This is where I get a bit annoyed! Petrol is more globally polluting than Diesel, (more "greenhouse" gasses). Diesel is more locally polluting than Petrol, (more soots and smuts). The jury is still out on electric/hybrid cars, or at least I've heard/read no definitive arguments. I am unaware of any manufacturer making a diesel hybrid car, which must be the ultimate vehicle for distance motoring. I accept that a significant amount of the electricity generated in this country is done without burning fossil fuels, but I am further aware that we as a country imports an also signifi
  15. Ray, When you were 15, they were still building Victorian terraced houses!
  16. That comment surprises me Griff. How much do you reckon an hours clay shooting costs. An hour in a pub doesn't cost me very much less than £25, not if I include the fruit machine! Things, especially "an hour of fun" tend to cost rather more than we often think. An hour in a chandlers for under £25, Dunno, never done that!
  17. I might be wrong here and with a bit of luck Vaughan or Freedomholidays will correct me if I am. These car cleaning products are great on genuine gelcoat, however can cause problems if the surface has been painted. If the painted surface needs re-painting but had been treated with these polishes, there is an issue with the fresh coat adhering to the old paint.
  18. I use this stuff. It works for me. https://www.slimeygreenalgae.co.uk/justmoorunderatree-wecallitpatina-savesallthehardwork-lets-you-enjoy-your-boat I've been using it for years without any problems.
  19. Gt Yarmouth Yacht station, the perfect place for paddle boards and floating bicycles.
  20. Horses for courses Scrumpy, A day boat is more about travelling where one of these bikes would be hired for a "bit of fun on the water". I wonder how many youngsters would/will graduate from hiring one of these to eventually going out on the rivers on or in a more serious craft.
  21. I wonder what the draught of these things are, and how much they cost to toll. Wouldn't mind one as a tender.
