Re: K7's Wheeled Cradle

K7 is way too big to tow on the highway on a trailer behind a 4x4, she'll need a truck and as for slips there's only really the boating centre or Pier Cottage that would take her neither of which are especially suitable. There are, however, other private sites here and there from which she could be ...

Re: New unseen pictures on Rainbow Forum

Lovely gates; good to see the Ruskin's pet blacksmith pocketing a few quid off the back of what we're all striving for over here on a voluntary basis. Not.

Re: K7's Wheeled Cradle

How about a flatbed with an eight ton Hiab? We could launch from the lake road with that setup and take the boat home every evening if we felt the need.

Re: Queen & Ace of Spades

Awww, they're all laughing at you, Fred. Welcome to my world... I was once introduced to an old-timer who was allegedly involved in the same card game but it was at the funeral so my civic duty as box-carrier got in the way of questioning said individual. Seems to have a grain of truth but then if y...

Re: K7's Wheeled Cradle

There was a bloke from Cornwall who popped up way back when who claimed to have the original cradle, or rather, it was lying in the yard of a lady-friend of his whose husband had recently died. The husband and the mystery caller had, apparently, visited Coniston several times whilst returning from s...

Re: Why do we do it?

Thank you for your kind words and indeed it's been an absolute pleasure working with your good self. Why do we do it? God knows... could be because it's the best fun in the world and totally satisfying. I'd beware of offering to buy the first round though, there'll probably be a hundred of us by then.
