Big thanks to LBBY. On monday morning, we decided to depart from Potter Heigham early. At approx 7:30am, I was turning the boat around near the pilots office, when the gear linkage cable (from morse to outdrive) broke. Leaving me with a sweet running engine but not going anywhere. The gentle breeze put me nicely just to the side of the bridge on the curved bit above Phoenix Fleets dyke.

I phoned LBBY at about 8:30am and spoke to George, who may I add is very friendly and extremely helpful.
One hour later Brian was at the boat diagnosing the fault. Found it to be the end of the cable that had broke. He went back to the boatyard to look for a part. Unable to find the part, he actually made one and brought it back and fitted it.  Bearing in mind Brian was working on his stomach hanging over the quay and actually doing the job by feel under the water, and a more obliging chap I have yet to meet.
11:30am I was on my way back round to Stalham. I called in at LBBY to pay the bill and was absolutely delighted at £69:00.  Get well soon Jason, wishing you all the best.  Once again many thanks to LBBY
Regards
Russ

Has anyone ever had a bad thing to say about the infamous 'LBBY' ? must say its a credit to Jason and all his staff, keep up the good work and i know where i will go (maybe there sooner than i would like). but at least me know we will get the kind of service you would hope for.

When I phoned the mobile number I had for LBBY, I asked for Jason. George informed me that Jason was not well and is waiting to go into hospital. However he is still knocking about and not layed up in bed as my post may have given the impression of. So basically I was wishing him well hoping that everything would be fine.
cheers

Hi everyone

Thank you for your get well messages & compliments to the boatyard
staff, I will pass these on.

Im pleased that LBBY seems to be heading in the right direction,
however we still have several major hoops to jump through during this
next few months so we may need some support from the NBF
members!
Griff & Tisca knows a bit, and offered help as soon as Im ready, but MP
Norman Lamb is currently involved, so ive got to wait until next week.

Ref my health - as some of you may know I suffer from Kidney Stones,
and have done for the last 25 years.  Im also co-chairman on the
research project at the Royal College of Surgeons in London, so
hopefully we might be able to sort the problem out soon!!.......  Smile

It does affect my daily life but I still manage to work.  Sometimes Im
only good for a 4hour day and sometimes I can go 16hours, however
somehow I manage (just!) Lots of people have daily health problems to
deal with, some much worse than my issue so I try not to let it get to
me.

Many thanks for all your support & may see a few of you over the
weekend

Kindest Regards

Jason

Great news that you are on the up once more.

YOU are far more important that the yard and it's about time you had a weekend off with your family afloat

As I have been sadly reminded today once again life can be too short (Been to a mates funeral and he was just 49)

If this goes situation of you and your all work and no play goes on much longer we will damn well kidnap you afloat for a weekend, when was the last time you had that boys tiny excuse for bike out for a ride then eh?

Thought so, Rest my case your honour.
