Hi guys,
        We went down to the boat on Friday with the intention of staying until Monday but we have wimped out already, the weather is awfull !!

However, we were moored stern on in the dyke at the new inn in Horning late yesterday afternoon when one of the large cruisers from the big boat yard in Wroxham moored up for the night. About ten mins later a green and white river cruiser with a group of teens came down the river and hit the moored boat so hard that all the windows on the front and side of the green and white boat samahed !! It also managed to literally rip in half the 6" thick post that the moored boat was secured to !!  Sorry guys, didny get any pics.
Best bit though was when they actually managed to moor, they put plastic bags over the windows then carried on !!

Bet the boat yard will be well chuffed, or maybe not !!

Ouch! Sounds like an early start for the Cretin Brigade. What was the state of the moored boat after the impact?

There were other examples of idiocy yesterday too...

Hire boats blasting through Horning in the pitch black darkness...internal lights blazing...as if that's going to help!

Goodness knows what it's going to be like by August!  Smile

I wouldn't have wanted to be out on the river yesterday.....way too gusty for me.

Ferry Marina was well under water in parts and I have to admit to driving from the car park to the pub due to lack of wellies.

Sorry I missed you yesterday morning John. I would have stopped to say hello but I'd driven right past you before I clicked it was you and your good lady walking out of Ferry Lane  Blush

Expected to see a few familiar faces in the pub later in the afternoon...no one around Frown

Hi, Jamesey...no worries. We'll hook up on a less arctic weekend!

We actually wimped out and came home yesterday afternoon. Blush

Apart from not wanting to venture out in near gale-force winds, we have some domestic electrical issues on board, either a down charger or wasted domestic batteries (their fourth season), which meant we couldn't use the Mikuni heating without running the Pentas. As there are folks on an Easter break in the cottage opposite our mooring, running the beasts wasn't an option. They are less than tranquil in an enclosed dyke even on tickover and so would have disturbed the cottage's guests somewhat!

We managed a good few jobs done over the two days and met up with friends so it was still a good trip.

As for the missing familiar faces in the Ferry, most of the usual crew had gathered at Ranworth staithe with a view to frequenting the Maltsters later on.

John

Can't say I blame you for going back home at all.

We were going to come up for a while but changed our minds after we saw what the weather was up to for Easter. I decided to get up yesterday and either fix a nagging small leak in our bow water tank or replace it all together. With a bit of advice from a boaty chum, the leak was done which is just as well because the tank was installed before the bunk seats and getting the old one out ain't an easy option.

I also admit to cheating and bringing up a fan heater from home.... warm as toast on board yesterday afternoon. Heavyish snow in Herts right now and I'd guess most of East Anglia is getting a dose too.

Jim,

Its not too bad here in Cantley.

Been snowing for about an hour and a half, but not heavy and barely laying on the marshes.

Its still cold outside though!

Here we go again as to the last Season in 07 from another post Called Justices Is Done. Now in 08 this not a very good start of this New Season so I hope some one is keeping a look out for this Green and White River Cruiser and bring them to Book as to having No Navigation Lights and Failing to Stop as I hope B A are aware of this? Ps if you get another one of theses as some thing has gone wrong with the Computer or the Server?
Andrew.
