  1. tried the highwaymans knot down the boat and it is perfect thank you
  2. that seems perfect thank you
  3. i usually do but we were there a while and it was ok to start with
  4. looks simple, will give it a go
  5. Hi launched my new to me broads boat yesterday, been quite a few years since i had a large boat, my previous one was only a 20' this one is 26' long x 10.6wide so quite a lump anyways she drove lovely, but we had to stop so the wife could do a conference call for her work on the way from the launch spot to the new moorings. the only place i could find was on the river side with no proper moorings but there was a built in ladder so i tied the rope to the ladder rung. I passed a loop through then tied it off however the tide moved the stern of the boat out into the river quite badly, so i had to pull the stern back towards the bank and then put a bank hook in and tied that on which helped. anyway while pulling her back in i pulled my arms and shoulders as i couldn't release the rope on the ladder as it had got so tight, i tried using the engine to move the stern in but nope i had to pull her in. which knot would of been good to tie onto the rung, so i could of slipped it with the loose end?
  6. still after one of these pls if anyone has 1 that the screw can be roved to inflate. mine is all white i did get given 1 but it doesn't match but will do great to attach to the mooring landing
  7. no annoyingly, he said he might know someone but i'd rather pay a bit and use a proper company
  8. managed to get hold of kingsley farrington, and no they don't do boat transport anymore and recommended chillout, but they don't have a hi-ab so still looking please
  9. kingsley aren't answering which is quite common obviously with ppl not being able to work
  10. bell's still do access for £40 to their yard for the company to drop it in water
  11. no they don't have hi-ab's
  12. not sure if chillout have a small enough lorry as you can't get a bigggg lorry onto the site where my boat is. GMR struggled with his fixed bed lorry
  13. thats who i bought the boat from, he only has a trailer and said he can't move it
  14. I have a 3 ton boat 26' x 10' i need moving from a field near beccles to loddon I used GMR to bring it here and he charged me £350 to move it from the other side of cambridge to beccles, he has since retired...... the cheapest i have found to move it from beccles to loddon it £480 I have tried Abbott transport, MRA transport, wavetrade, All the trailer boys can't move it as they can only move 2.75ton. so i think it'll have to be hi-abed as 3 ton is pretty heavy
  15. the pulley is enclosed in the mushroom top, but i gather i just need an extra piece of rope and tie it to the top loop on the flag then tie it off at the cleat, then tie the bottom rope to the cleat also
