    North & South, Where Is The Line?

    It's a chuffin small sea It's not even that big and certainly not a 'Sea' But it is classed as inland though Griff

    Why Is It?

    Simples , no radiator Actually there is, the boats 'Radiator' is the river! (Via heat exchanger etc) We have looked at and discussed a few times now of doing this onboard 'B.A' Initially I was thinking of going down the scrapyard route, cobbling together a matrix / fan etc but nowadays there are some decent sized ready made kits out there, matrix inlet / outlet with 12v fan, some of them multi speed, plus the hot air ducting pipes. It is something we will do one of these days maybe even during our forthcoming AMP next April. If so We will of course report with photo's of the diy fitting Griff

    Broad Ambition - TLC Time Again

    Grimsby must be the s/steel capital of UK. More than likely cheaper than Norfolk and definitely faster - mind you, that wouldn’t be difficult Griff

    Broad Ambition - TLC Time Again

    How about buying the s/steel you want off the shelf, then taking the lot down to FW Halls for a price - Getting a quote costs nowt. Failing that how about emailing them some pictures with measurements for a quote? Griff

    Broad Ambition - TLC Time Again

    Rolled? Clarify Pse the long thin quarter round stuff I bought off the shedlf and fitted mysen onto the timber rubbers. We have a third deck hatch to be done next year so that’ll be another £120 + vat bringing it to £432 whether that is expensive depends on the quality/ standard of finish plus it’s a once only purchase that will last a lifetime Griff

    Broad Ambition - TLC Time Again

    Could you tell me who is doing the stainless steel around the hatch please? So far unable to find anyone to do ours. Many Thanks F.W Hall and Son, Rackheath - 01603 626380. Rang me today. The two polished s/steel borders have been quoted at £240 for the pair (Plus vat of course) they will be 3mm thick laser cut from a sheet so no joints or welding to the corners with a 20mm overlap onto the deck from the hatches. They will drill screw them into place on the hatches. He did state that the two hatches differed slightly in size from each other - No, Really? - no surprise there then but will make the two borders identical size, this will mean one side the overlap will be down to 17mm but both will look identical. I will have to notch both of them out slightly once I have them onboard to fit round the end of the cabin sides (I have the tools / experience to do this). They will be ready for collection in January, he could have got them done before Christmas but they are somewhat pushed and it is not urgent for us to have them on the next maintenance weekend visit, besides it gives me time to properly adjust the load bearing inside frames that need some fine tuning and source some soft rubber rain water seals to bond to the backs of the borders. So sadly no photo's for a while yet Griff

    Sea Level Change, Since 1970...

    Laughable and exasperating Griff

    Sea Level Change, Since 1970...

    Oh if only someone would do it. I know, I’ll buy a Euro million ticket and do the sodding thing mysen BUT that would expose shallow un dredged areas elsewhere so no doubt the blessed authority would fight me all the way Griff

    Sea Level Change, Since 1970...

    Those dredging figures you quoted are scratching the itch at best and were done because they absolutely had to be to save boats running aground at high water. It needs all the river done from Stokesby to GYA but what’s the point if the bottleneck of silt is left in place between Marina keys and the yellow post the commissioners must have been wasting their time eh? Griff

    Sea Level Change, Since 1970...

    Coincidentally Beccles Old road bridge is quoted as being the same. Although on the low water range we never have a problem getting through and the Jewels are 7ft - ish, not a prayer of getting them through PHB Griff

    Sea Level Change, Since 1970...

    It's laughable or reduces one to tears. The current Broads Tide tables 2018 - 2019 produced by the Blessed Authority currently states clearance for PHB being 6FT 6" - That's for summer normal HIGH water tides - Really? I wish! they are kidding themselves, certainly not the rest of us Griff
