  1. Ideal size boat?

    But why would you need to meet it side on?

    We want one with the engine where it is in this one. Under the helm. The gearbox is under the second cabin bed. We had a nosey at a rear engined one and the layout was different with a bedroom at the back and saloon in the middle. But also access around the engine was poor compared to this layout.
  4. Ideal size boat?

    Layout is far more important then length for making a boat suitable or not. We have been on some 60 odd ft boats that have less useable space then 59 odd ft boats due to wasted space and poor layout.

    We had a great meal in Pedro's last night. Great concept and great food. On to Horning today. Yes. We know it will be a long process recording one of these. Best to do it right in the first instance though.

    Turns out ours is 35ft albeit 12ft wide.

    This has nothing at the back. The front fits very well. Wouldn't be difficult to modify though. They have removed the winch systemfrom this one making the roof manual. Which is fine , it isn't difficult to pull back up. But we are young and fit for now. We won't be forever so the winch would have to be fitted. We are very surprised how dry this boat is. We expected streaming windows every morning but non so far other then a slight bit after a shower which is easily wiped up. That is one issue we would have to remedy. No opening window in the master cabin shower room, which Liam has decided is my toilet and shower. It has a roof vent but it isn't enough. It would need either an extractor fan or the window frame modifying to take an opener. Again not a deal breaker.

    We have had a good dig around this boat. Plenty of room to build in additional storage and plenty of places to put lots of insulation. The sliding roof on this isn't too gappy. The front fits nice and snug. The back needs something but could easily have some rubbers fitted. Doesn't take long to heat up with the sun either.

    We have a quiet day today. Only have to get to Acle.

    Ali Tandoori. Brilliant place. The Goan Salmon is amazing .

    It is woefully under propped as well which isn't helping. Response to the throttle is poor. We are in no doubt that can be improved though and we can see why they do under prop them. It does scoot along quite well. 1500rpm is a sweet spot giving just under 6 knots and according to the engine specs should return about 1 litre per hour from the Nanni 40hp. 2000rpm it is happy with but fuel economy dives to 4 litres per hour. Sat nice at that on Breydon at 8 knots. More revs didn't really give more speed after that and the engine didn't feel as happy although it should rev up to 2800rpm this one is throttled right back to 2300rpm by the gear lever hitting the bulkhead.

    We had a nice night out in Norwich and found a brilliant Indian restaurant. Now we are just topping up with water and will shortly be back on our way towards Yarmouth. Liam has got to grips with the comedy handling now! Whatever you do in reverse it buggers off to port. So ignore reverse and manoeuvre in forwards. And it's a bit tail happy. Doesn't take much to kick the R Send out.

    The batteries were much better this morning. Another long day today and again tomorrow so we should manage with them.
  14. Not So Naughty-Cal in Norfolk

    Onwards to Norwich today.

    The batteries on this thing are shot. Didn't have enough in then to fire the heating up this morning and we didn't use much last night. Hoping they last a bit better for a good run today. If not engineer can come out again with some different ones!
