Have signed up as part of the Ant contingent.

Should be OK as long as we get away from the boatyard early enough.


All the best

Is it just me that keeps thinking of C.W. McCall's song Convoy, whenever I read this thread?

"Lissen, you wanna put that DannyBoy in behind that bathtub? Yeah, he's haulin' the sight meat barbecue firelighters, and he needs all the help he can get."

Original post updated with two more boats added.

There are a few that as of yet their flotilla location is not known, - no problem as this can be determined and updated later.

Hi Arthur, that is the plan Lynsey and mark along with
ourselves are collecting from Richardsons,I am going to
try and collect from 12 on the friday, Lynsey suggested
we get all the forum members boats together it looks
like there will be more.Griff has said that he will
fire a letter off put some sway on the matter(hope i
got that right) publicity and the likes otherwise we
will need another C in C.
Are we going to get regular updates as to what is
happening or needs to be done regards the cruise, i
know Griff is updating the numbers but was wondering
what else is going on or need help in anything.

Thanks for the comments Graham.

I notice that you are on a weeks hire.

We have our boat for just the weekend.

Normal policy at Richardsons is to prepare the short break boats ahead of the ones going out on a weeks hire.  Twice I have had boats out for 7 days or more and its been around 2.30 before I got away yet the short break boats were away by 1.00.

It would be great if  Richardsons were able to organise things so that all of the boats taking part in the "Cruise in Company"  were positioned next to each other on the same quay and ready around the same time so we can all depart 'en masse' from the yard.

If this cannot be arranged and we all end up ready at differing times maybe it would be an idea to rendevous further down river, Barton Turf maybe and then when the convoy as PL describes it is complete, then set off together.

Just a few thoughts anyway.  Plenty of time yet.

I have re-read this entire thread and I note an earlier posting you made regarding communications.

I know there are two of us in the Ant flotilla with Amateur radio licences and one in the Thurne flotilla, and some with marine radio but I think your suggestion re-pmr446 is a good one, although I am not sure how good the range will be in the broads environment.

Anyway, I can bring a pair of PMR446 sets so if others are using them we should be able to keep in touch as long as we agree channel numbers in advance of course.

Really looking forward to coming to the meet for the first time and being part of the "Cruise in Company"

All the best

Arthur

Just thought I would bump this thread back up again before it gets too far down the list.

All the best
