I stood at Sutton Staithe only last week looking across the broad and it suddenly occurred to me just how much narrower it looked than last year. There is no doubt in my mind that the route into Sutton is narrower than it was.

Re: Broads toll.

Mine is maybe a couple of quid up but nothing hideous.

Sutton Staithe Mud Bath

I called in to Sutton Staithe recently to raise my mast and I must admit the staithe is a total bog. The mud is so intense that I had to lay a tarpaulin down around the boat so I could get on and off without getting in a right state.

Re: Broads National Park?

I have met some people who have actually got quite agitated when I suggested it was just a label and meant nothing. You are quite right about the emphasis being put on conservation but when you see the bins having been taken away then it does slightly smell a bit like a load of tosh to me. At the en...

Re: Solar Panels

Solar panels are the dogs these days, so efficient. Know the advantages and differences between mono and poly. I had a 100 watt a couple of years ago and that was a poly. I could even charge up cordless tools with it. The flexible ones, although appealing by design are believed to be ineffective at ...
