i was down at the shed today with mtb102. She's still waiting on props and shafts, they're hoping they will turn up tommorow. Keep your fingers crossed.

I'm late leaving for Norfolk, there was a delay at the tyre fitting place and a problem with Tigers chain - now sorte.  I should be away by around 1330 now.  Once departed I can no longer view/post on the NBF of course.


MTB102 - Right, ref those shafts/props/launching etc.  Just rang RB and conversed.  He is expecting to take delivery of the shafts/props anytime now.  Fitting is straight forward and he has man power standing by to assist.

He has visited the OB HM the lock is booked, Tolls sorted.  Richard has been with the NBF Standard and RB is happy he can fly it onboard.

Now then if the shafts arrive late and delays things he might not make our 1400 deadline tomorrow.  I informed him this is not a problem we can hang around and assist if required, before 1400 tomorrow however I will know more.

Crew/Px's you carry on as previously instructed with regards to times etc.  When you get to the yard in the morning if owt has changed then try to let the rest of us know.

However I will contact RB again this evening to find out the state of play, I'll then ring Richard or someone or t'other that can post an update on here

So there you have it, you now know what I know - which for me is usually not much as it happens.

Anyone wanting to ring me on my mobile may do so, If I'm astride the Tiger though I'll not be able to take the call of course.

See you afloat.

Just got back from a fantastic weekend. We met some great people made some new friends and saw quite a lot of the southern rivers.  I must say a special thanks to Simon, Griff and Rodger for all their help and assistance over the weekend, I even got to drive BA, (thanks Griff).  Apart from one hairy moment approaching Breydon PL9 did us proud.
Many thanks to everyone who made the C in C possible.

Doug and Hele.

Back Home.

Not a nice ride home on the Tiger, dark and raining, left Stalham at 1915 and got in for 2200.

Anyroadup,

What a great weekend.  Thoroughly enjoyed by the crew of 'B.A' from start to finish.  I've got some photo's to sort out which I'll do over this coming week.  Thanks to all forumites for helping making this weekend proper special for us.

I've had an E-mail from RB MTB102 thanking the NBF for a very good weekend which they enjoyed.  That's me pleased as punch as my first concern was that the MTB skipper/crew were not inconvenienced or out of pocket. They weren't and aren't  Cheers

This e-mail received from RB:-

____________________

Thanks for your hospitality over the weekend. We all enjoyed your event greatly.
When we got back to the yard and sorted we took 102 to sea for an hour and a half for sea trials. She behaved very well. There was no vibration at all upto 1900rpm on the shafts and around 25kts sea speed. I just need a few more revs though.
I have got your NBF umbrella here if you need it back. and the NBF flag.

Best wishes,
Richard.

We were lucky enough to be at Oulton on Friday to see the start of the C.I.C. and a great sight it was, MTB102 looked wonderful but had to set off a little fast to clear the Broad for the upcoming yacht pursuit race, the NBF member looked fantastic, all dressed to kill. Well done to all involved.

Sunday we were in Brundall so drove up to the A47 to watch the 37th Truck Fest and that was spectacular, 80 trucks all gleaming and sparkling carrying sick, disabled and disadvantaged children from Norwich to a day out at Pleasurewood Hills, the convoy was accompanied by Police outriders all waving to the crowds that lined parts of the route despite the (at times) torrential rain.
I was just wondering, if the C.I.C. was to take place again next year, could some thing similar be arranged to allow some less fortunate children to have a nice afternoon out on the river? Maybe in conjunction with The Nancy Oldfield Trust? I know there would be H&S issues but with a year to plan...
Just a thought.

Dave Cheers

if it is to be it is up to me!

Dave,

Might I suggest this idea you have had could be kicked off on a separate thread?  If you want to start one off then I'll add my 'umble thoughts on it.
