Jealous? Not I.

Nice warm cosy car for me .... especially in the winter which seems to get longer every year. Or perhaps i'm just getting old.

Yes, If your boat is the one I'm thinking of, great in summer, less great in winter or rain. Smile  Nice, but oh so open! Smile  Of course, you could put a shed on it, but there could be complications...lol

Wow, new you guys would be the Oracle, thanks for the great info.

My 12' Ali will make 10 knots with a little 6hp on it, light as anything and will plane with two onboard, so no problem punching the tide.

Yes agree it can be a bit chilly, but dressed correctly that is not a problem, been a motorcyclist and a boater all my life, as long as you have the right gear on and you are warm and dry then all is well.

Rather be in the boat for an hour than the car for 20 mins, dog will be happier in the boat too.

We have an Excel spreadsheet that we've used for a
number of years to calculate journeys on the Broads and
the times are based on averages from actual diary times
over the years.  I'm indebted to Strowager for his
calculations which are so close to our prediction that
I feel like we've been given a seal of approval, a bit
like a royal "By appointment to Strowager" (need a
crest to go with it).  Our figures are 6.15 miles and 1
hour 22, but bear in mind that we're not usually going
at a speed indicative of late for work.  Whatever it
takes, it must beat 6 miles on the M25.  Looking
forward to the next visit to the shop in May.

Regards
Aubrey

Aubrey old chap,

Do me a favour and add in:

1)predicted forecast time tidal information,
2)a field for wind direction,

Then divide the rivers up into section of constant-ish heading.

Given 1 and 2 it should then be possible to predict boat speed over ground for each section, and thus calculate an optimum course for the Three Rivers Race, and avoid the now traditional "Left or Right" argument when we get to Thurne Mouth.

Anytime before the end of May will be fine, oh and keep this our little secret, don't tell the others.

  Wink

David

All I can say giftshop is watch your wash when you go
past Thurne staithe, we are moored there and don't want
our pride and joy sat on the bank Smile

No worries Barneyboat, I always slow passing moored boats and the alumimium dinghys that we sell are very light so do not put out a lot of wash.

Usual travel time from the top of Womack Staithe to the moorings at Ranworth is at least an hour and fifteen minutes in my experience.

It takes fifteen minutes to cruise from the yard to the mouth of the dyke without creating any wash and this time doesn't allow for giving way to Hunters yachts or the Albion.

Do I take it from your comments you would like to negotiate a mooring?

Hi David
What a brilliant suggestion for a spreadsheet
development!!  I'd have a go, but your conscience might
trouble you if we made the result a foregone conclusion.
Would it ruin the fun

Aubrey,

You are quite correct of course. Had not considered the conscience angle. Will go away and have a long talk with myself and see how we feel.










It's fine.

Considerably less dastardly than the tactics employed by some on here, including an unfeasibly bright yellow buoyancy aid, intended to act as a beacon to lure unsuspecting RCCs  onto the putty in Heigham Sound.

Smile

David
