    Passing Sailing Boats on the Severn

    This was the same plan I used on the Broads, work well most of the time except the occasion a whole bunch of yotties racing came straight at me despite me being only 2 or 3 metres from the right bank. One brave soul tried to pass me between my boat and the quay headed bank. The result was he came to an abrupt halt and then tried to blame me! I gave him some advice concerning sex and travel and continued on my way. Phil

    Courers DPD are a joke

    Delivered to my boat (my home ) In the event of something going astray I have always tackled the sender as they are the one who has the contract with the courier not that this has ever been DPD. Phil

    Courers DPD are a joke

    Er just saying but all the multiple parcels I get from DPD come via Peterborough never had a problem and communications with DPD are faultless. Phil

    Courers DPD are a joke

    Reckon you have just been very unlucky, had you spoken to the seller in the first place their intervention at an early stage would have produced a very different outcome. Clearly something went very wrong in your case but not withstanding that, this thread demonstrates that DPD are probably one of or are the best courier out there. Phil

    What a beautiful day!

    Huh, may surprise you but I was drinking stubbies over 50 years ago so am quite familiar with the term used for a 1/3litre bottle. Phil

    Licence auto-renewal

    But the whole point of setting up a Direct Debit is to take all the hassle out of it. Or did you mean you just paid with your debit card? Phil

    Hello from the Norfolk Broads!!

    I fully understand where you are coming from, there are other things in life that stir the blood more than a huge water tank. Phil

    Hello from the Norfolk Broads!!

    A very fine boat for a single live aboard 28ft by 12ft beam, separate bedroom, huge water tank carried under the floor midships. A mate of mine lived on one. Phil

    Hello from the Norfolk Broads!!

    Wouldn't count on It, had a hard life in hire, the typical hirer of this boat was a stag or hen party and it travelled at full throttle unless the Broads Patrol was about. The roof was exceptionally strong as the 10 strong muster spent most of the time dancing on it Phil
  14. Agree entirely, 2 of us on board full time with 2 dogs . Our 60 footer has more than once been described as a TARDIS by visiting 57 footer owners,, it's all about layout. Phil

    Hello from the Norfolk Broads!!

    I am sure I recognise that boat, 50ft ex Alphacraft much loved by many stag and hen parties Phil
