  1. 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
  2. no annoyingly, he said he might know someone but i'd rather pay a bit and use a proper company
  3. 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
  4. kingsley aren't answering which is quite common obviously with ppl not being able to work
  5. bell's still do access for £40 to their yard for the company to drop it in water
  6. no they don't have hi-ab's
  7. 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
  8. thats who i bought the boat from, he only has a trailer and said he can't move it
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. no the pulley is inside the mushroom shaped top, only rope there is is whats attached to the flag
  12. Hi folks, strange question, I have a wooden flag pole with a pulley at the top of the pole and a small cleat near the bottom. I have just received my new ensign flag and it has a loop at the top and a loose rope at the bottom. does anyone know how to attach it to the pole pls?

    Bss And Tolls

    the trouble is we aren't meant to be near anyone else, so how can we follow government guidelines by not being within 2 metres of anyone and still have someone on our boats ?
  14. My rudder and framework seems to be made from mild steel, as it's quite rusty seems strange to me to have them made that way as they sit under water obviously, I will be anti-fouling them with a good couple of coats (apart from anodes) but i did wonder if it was worth painting them with a waterproof under water paint? does anyone know a paint that would work under water?
  15. i want to get my boat in water the 1st week of April. annoyingly my BSS examiner has messaged me to say due to the state of play at present he can't examine my boat. obviously with no bss i can't toll the boat either i wonder how the BA would be with how things are, ? this isn't a normal time obviously with everyone being told not to socialise or go near others. i will be ringing them during the week to ask advice
