The other day I got a phone call from BCBM. The quote from Brooms for the new fridge was outrageous, Richo's had quoted a much better price, and the boat needed to go to Richo's anyway for a gel coat repair. As I can take a hint the upshot is next Tuesday evening the Elf and I are setting off for Horning from Brundall. The plan is to head for Berney Arms Tuesday evening and set out from there the next morning to pass GYYS at about 08.15. That's if the call of the Nelson at Reedham doesn't get us but this will mean an earlier start Wednesday morning although we will benefit from the ebb tide . Watch this space :)
Odd things have been happening.... Act 1 Firstly, I got up yesterday to see that our valuable gangplank wasn't there. it had left Brilliant, sandwiched as she was between two other boats on a calm night, and vanished entirely. i had spared no expense making this item from an old bookshelf and the remnants of a tin of varnish; indeed, the budgie grit in the last coat has been known to attract the odd seagull, it is a work of art. Act 2 Broad Ambition to the rescue, did I mention that Griff was moored nearby? He kindly offered to check the margins out on his way to Wroxham and later Griff texted to say he had found the item at the end of the broad, sticking out from the reeds and that it was aboard. I think he thought we were headed for Acle, but we weren't... :) Act 3 The plank returns. Moonlight Shadow on her northern progress took the plank aboard at Acle and delivered it it me in the Whimp in the middle of Malthouse Broad, Keith and Lisa then set off in a balletic manner pirouetting up Ranworth Dam. Was it relief at a treasure restored? Is it a new stinky fashion to wreak vengeance on ziggy zaggy sailies? As I said.....odd, very odd.
