This blog post has been moved to the main part of the site . It had been a while since our last excursion with Elizabeth and Kevin. You'll recall that last October I posted how the plan had gone wrong . Then the planned joint canoe trip couldn't take place as all the local hire boat places had... read more

You'll remember that Ian had offered to send me an off-cut from his pond liner that I could use to replace the worn out seal on Just 17's keel handle. I had got round to measuring up a fortnight ago. In fact, Ian had sent a small sheet... read more

A week or two back I got a call from SeaHawk owner John Southey. Would I have time to help him assist Hugh, another SeaHawk owner, slip his boat out of the water? It's rare for me to refuse a request for help from a SeaHawk owner, and how could I this time? Hugh and John had been helms on the tw... read more

After the big freeze last week, the weather is warming up again. This afternoon my thermometer said it was over 5° outside. It started me thinking of boating again. I lie! In fact I'd been thinking boating over much of the weekend. It started with a post I made last Thursday on the Norfolk Broads Forum... read more

I'd been meaning to get down to the boat in daylight for some time. I managed it last weekend at lunch time on Sunday, but lunch time meant there was no time for the list the tasks I had in mind at the end of my last post a month ago... Retrieve the carpet tiles and give them a clean, oil th... read more

My neighbour passed me a letter. It's opening paragraphs read.. On Christmas Eve, the angel 'Homeserve' descended on our cottage to determine why the toilet was backing up in the cloakroom. Behold, a miracle was performed, the drain was unblocked, and Ruth and Roger were able to uncross thei... read more

The plan was that Diana and I would... Unfortunately, I took so many photographs for this entry that the text isn't in any way related to the nearby images, so either just look at the pictures and read the captions or ignore the pictures and just read the main text.
