  4. Sometime takes time to load properly, but worth the effort
  5. Some realy nice footage of many parts of the Broads ,taken from a Drone. https://www.eveningnews24.co.uk/news/drone-video-of-the-broads-at-the-still-waters-norwich-exhibition-1-5967289
  6. Some thirty years ago after friends had a week on the Broads with him ,we hired a Freeman 26 from a chap who also had some day boats in Beccles I only remember his first name was Jimmy.All went well till we could not get it into gear in Stalham .we phoned him and within the hour he turned up and fixed it.That was good until later when I realised that had he not fixed it ,then how would he have got us and the boat back South ? It was then I vowed to use a hire yard in future as I realised that I although we and the children had a good holiday.,I would not risk being stuck in the future ,with limited back up.
  7. I would never consider it ,but the maintenance and breakdown response would make it a no no I would have thought.
  8. Discussion on Radio Norfolk about a plan to place you inn touch with boat owners prepared to hire out their boats directly . The amount of arguments about the obstacles involved from The BA ,and othhers involved in boating ,not to mention the owner of the boats moorings ,could limit the take up on this idea .Would you consider doing this with your pride and joy ?
  9. Heard that it opens today in the old children’s clothes shop ,opposite Mc Donald’s 🤗
  10. A birthday treat at Brands saw myself behind the wheel of Lotus Elise and then a Nissan GT-R and going at 120 mph the fastest I have driven 😊was an awesome experience ,but satisfied a long standing desire to drive a race track.Thoughorly recommended.I surpose a bash round Oulton Broad. In a power boat would be an equivalent water based experience!
  11. All the top places listed in the Norfolk tourism awards and included Greg and mentioned Richardson’s ,well done , some of the others would not have been on my list,but we are all different,interesting to hear your choices ? https://www.eveningnews24.co.uk/news/business/norfolk-tourism-awards-all-the-winners-from-the-big-night-1-5912049
  12. Our Bounty gets mainly water in the tray under the engine,from the hatch area,we use a pick up tool and a nappy to soak it up ,job done.

  14. Seasons greetings to all 😀 Diane and Roy
  15. TFI was taken from horning The Ferry Inn ,we were told when they launched that brand and appears to be their brand, if you go on the site and tick Rackheath you will get that as the group of restaurants details. 😄 we will give it a try on our way back from Norwich sometime ,as it would be a good stop for us. 🍺🍴
  16. The Green Man at Rackheath has now reopened as TFI. Sister to the Ferry inn Horning .Anybody tried it yet,? looks to be similar food etc to Ferry according to website ?
  17. Just listened to the show and wondered if we learnt any thing from what was said,many interesting question ,but many were not fully answered and “ I will check when I get back to the office “ It vwould be interesting if these answers were to be given back “ air .” Did you listen to it ?
  18. So sorry to hear the sad news Alan,our thoughts are with you and all you family at this time Diane and Roy
  19. Good news Robin same examiner ,I can imagine your thoughts when he came out I passed in a Morris Minor ,needed that window winder ,hand signals in those days,most drivers would wonder what I am on about ?
  20. Our thoughts are with you all at this time .
  21. We cruised the Ouse for many years before moving to Norfolk and always used Goba moorings ,wish we had something joke that in Norfolk ?
  22. Glad to hear you made it to the wedding,hope your feeling better.Many years ago at a pals wedding his father had a back problem and went to the church in the back of a van being carried on a door .Would not happen now days ? But like you he was determined to make the day.Best wishes.
  23. We were on the Broads when Coot Club was being filmed and still watch the DVD with the, Grandkids .Have a cine film some where which I must dig out taken at different times during filming ,remember they were doing the Braydon scenes with fog machines and such ,now days it would all by added by Effects in the post editing I am sure .Been a Ransome fan since that first book from the school library .A good source of his stuff was available in the Horning Post Office .
  24. Waited so long for this and certainly useful for us in North Norfolk ,driven it dozens of times but not comfortable with the roundabouts ? Garmin sat nav shows fields, despite two map updates ? How long do they take to update ? Roy
