  1. Underway from Womack to Sutton Staithe for pump out and diesel as per the norm. Nice day out on the rivers Griff
  2. Now at Womack Water. In Kings Arms for dinner. Home tomorrow Griff
  3. We have that in place now. We will now upgrade the memory capacity. Now enroute for PHB and a visit to La-Tharms Griff
  4. Sadly no fishing for me but idyllic spot for overnight Griff
  5. Reported it. Cctv. I will report it. Another crime number = no action Cctv - Yes but only 31 days so no evidence I’m done with it all Griff
  6. Onboard earlier this evening. Crewed up with six D88 former HMS Glasgow communicators, this is a yearly event and the only one I’ve not cancelled this year Now at Sutton Staithe Had yet another nasty discovery in the wetshed. I have five rods made up ready to go, three cheapo’s and two expensive rods along with reels. Yes, my ledger and float rods stolen. £400 gone. The cheapo’s still there of course. Yet another theft from the wetshed. Losing count now. That’s me finished with fishing until next year at the earliest. What with everything else that is going on this year, not a prayer of replacing them Not happy Griff
  7. I would hazard a guess that you inherited the name with the van....the previous owner having 'form' in such things. It's a nice van. Nope I gave the van the name 'Trevor'. Those stripes are factory fitted from new. As soon as the new V5 arrives I will put my cherished plates on. Received the K&N air filter today along with door wind deflectors, other stuff due to arrive anytime. I need to make mysen a timber racking / storage boxes above the Port rear wheel boxing-in. Spoke with my sign writing contact today about having some magnetic advertising pads made up for both side and the rear doors. Lots to do and get on with Griff
  8. Out with the old, in with the new. Meet 'Trevor the Transit. He is 4 x years old with only 18'k on the clock. Full service history, one owner from new. Lots of factory fitted optional extras and gizmos onboard. Today is our first working day together. Collected Trev from Norfolk yesterday. So far well chuffed with the new steed. Lots to purchase and make him more user friendly for his new role Griff
  9. Not at all chuffed I missed it. Due to circumstances beyond Robins control, 'B.A' missed it too That's the first time 'B.A' has not attended Dave's event. I hope it will be the last time too Griff
  10. That's the cleanest (and driest) I've seen him in quite a while Griff
  11. Thanks Kev, They are linked but did all the testing with cables disconnected so could test each battery separately , then progressively together. Anyroadup the new batteries have arrived, Robin will be installing them this week Griff
  12. Chuffin 'Eck Peter - Glad you are ok. Am I allowed to titter just a bit? (Knowing you are ok) Can you imagine if this had happened on the Lads Week? Griff
  13. so called sealed, remove sticker on top of battery filler plug underneath.John Yep, did exactly that Griff
  14. 'Houston - We have a problem' Robin had 'B.A' out for a weekend last month - no problem, then a couple of weekends later Bro' was onboard with his family / guests. The 12v system was discharging overnight and not lasting nowhere near as long as it should. 6 x 120amp Leisure batteries being kept charged up by 2 x alternators and the Solar Panels should last an age So. Me and Bro’ arrived onboard 1900 Saturday along with Robin, spent the evening testing and fault finding on the 12v system. Despite the batteries passing a drop test, amp test, voltage both under and off load – the six of them all passed with flying colours We were still getting a huge voltage drop on them with the inverter running over a period of hours. The charging system is fine, the inverter checked out ok as did the sterling smart charger and the alternators, solar panels and shore power Sunday morning more checks and by powers of elimination – it has to be the damn batteries. There are six 120amp leisure batteries, three year guarantee, they are 3 years and 3 months old – B *****D (Sorry) So six new ones ordered they will be fitted this coming week. Departed for Donny sometime after 1500 Robin and Sheila will be taking ‘B.A’ direct to Beccles for the annual vintage wooden boat show come hell or high water - due to recent events I can no longer make it and MrsG is well off station up in Scotland since May and for the foreseeable future - I'm proper missing her Griff
  15. I have ‘Found’ a Ford Transit Custom sport 2:2ltr 155bhp. It’s four years old, one owner with just 18000 on the clock. That’ll do it for me. Now to cobble the brass together Griff
