  2. No problem, we already know. 🤗
  3. Phil, this is Barry Bentley, now you have taken the piss, can you help me get  a crew position for the upcoming summer. I am considering buying a boat, but would like to get some experience on boat handling and also if I like it or not. I have extensive experience on Lake Ontario, but realise that this is totally different.

    Thank you.

      Hi Barry, not sure how I've taken the piss but however I may be able to point you in the right direction.

      Of course the fact we are in lockdown is a bit of a hindrance. 

      I promise I'll get back to you.

      I came onto NBs after having a liveaboard widebeam for 10 years and wanted to move from the Norfolk Broads to the Cambridgeshire Fens and the 13ft beam was too much so a NB it was.

      We moved from our 40ft x 13ft GRP to a 60ft 6' 10" and loved it.  We spent 10 years roaming the Fenland waterways but sadly my wife's health took a dive and we were forced ashore but stayed about a mile from the river Lark.

      Phone anytime 07760560820

      Regards Phil

       

  4. I agree , our semi trad has enclosed seating with rear doors that can be latched to keep dogs in plus under one seat is the battery bank and the other has twin gas bottles so easy to care for. The engine 'ole is partly protected but has great access for all the jobs that need doing from time to time. Phil ETA we too have a cover with a vinyl window/skylight
  5. A lot has happened in my life since I posted on this thread in 2014 (post 20) and I was forced to sell my boat (health of my wife) The boat was a Colecraft built in 1981 and was cold galvanised, the buyer had a survey and the surveyor said it had the best hull he had ever seen. Says something about the process. Phil
