  1. And equally unsuitable trip could be from Lowerstoft to Limehouse to enter the canal system there.
  2. Never done it in a narrowboat, but I have done it a number of times in a sailing boat from Wells to Lowerstoft, and then on to the Thames estuary. I personally would not attempt it in a narrowboat, but given the right weather window, I'm sure it could be done. There is a brand new lifeboat at Wells this year, and for good reason. Putting to sea in an unsuitable boat is pretty irresponsible in my view if other options are available. Blakeney Harbour and Wells are accessible, but with an ever shifting entrance. The harbour association do a good job of maintaining the buoys at Blakeney as does the harbour master and commissioners at Wells . It's also possible to visit Thorne,Brancaster and Burnham Overy. I have heard of people anchoring behind the artificial reef at Sea Palling too, given the right conditions, but never tried it. The North Norfolk coast is home to many small fishing boats who's lobster and crab pots can present a serious fouling risk to the unwary.
  3. If you have an affair your fete is bad.
  4. Yes, I watched a couple of them. Quite interesting. Why shouldn't we be watching it?
  5. Ok. so I watched most of it. It looks like once the larger diffuser thing is clogged, its a hell of a job to unclog it. Looks also like there are no reliable solvents that will break down the carbon build up. How about running a tank of kerosene through the burner once in a while? Would that burn hotter and kill the carbon before it builds up?
  6. Ok. I'll watch it after the Thames series, and after Nicks thing, and after......
  7. I wonder if this would partly answer yesterdays question from @IanD, in that although not fatal could possibly damage the bus windows on a typical narrowboat if hit at sufficient speed.
  8. For all you insomniacs out there, channel 83- Together TV on freeview on Monday 28th November at 0530 has a program called 'Boatyards on the Thames' A digital -works film.They have other Thames based films, including this one on their website: https://digital-works.co.uk/
  9. Do you mean this type of thing? If so, they can be removed with a coach bolt of the correct size. At least, mine could. Ah, I see the problem. You bought a failed one, when you should have got a working one. Is the new one bluetooth compatible? It seems the next logical step to get rid of the remote control
