Re: Reedham Ferry

It's about 45 years since I have been across Reedham ferry, my Dad used to come back to Toft Monks from Norwich that way sometimes for a change, I do believe it was a slightly different ferry then I think this one dates from the eighties.

Re: New Rubbing Strake For High Seas

Have fun fitting it in these temperatures when we fitted ours it was summer and still had to put it in hot water to make it supple, if you need a tip Miles lay it round the top of the boat and start fixing at the bow and pull it from the rear and then fix you will keep it straight with no sags 👍🏻

Happy New Year and yes Glenmore is being outstanding except the Webaso heater gave in 2 Days ago, the control unit has failed and they are obsolete so looks like a new heater in the New Year

Re: How To Clean GRP Boats

Oxalic acid is what I use, it comes in powder form and you mix it with warm water and put it in a garden sprayer (oxalic acid comes from rhubarb) this is the same stuff as star bright hull cleaner. Oxalic acid can be bought of eBay for about £7 a tub and it will last you for years

Re: Hire Boats Still Out

I do think that a lot of the hire boats are to big and 40ft should be the biggest allowed with only a small percentage allowed by each hire fleet 30 to 35 foot is ample
