    Default Music quiet enough .... + photos

    I agree ... but you know what some are like ....

    As its a family do - that is actually already a req't to be reasonable about volume ....

    We did have option for a Disco console ... but we decided that it would be enough for a portable boom-box !!

    Don't forget peeps ... please take plenty of photo's .... digi especially ... I would like to "album" the best into a presentation ... (best laid plans and all that .... - glutton for punishment !)

    Hi Nigel and everyone else
    Arriving Yarmouth Saturday mid afternoon
    Have booked with Harold Hayles for pontoon mooring for Sat and Sunday night.
    Motorboat SeaZi 37foot
    Me and SWMBO and 2 kids (8 & 12)
    Have own dingy
    Music:- "Bee Bop Deluxe" & "Blue Oyster Cult" - carry own CD's around but never allowed to play them so would welcome the opportunity to give them an airing

    Would also like to follow someone down from Cowes to Yarmouth on the Saturday pm as all my crew get scared when I'm in charge !

    Sounds good!! Welcome to have a nose round the boat!

    Not knowing Harold Hayles is it alongside in whatever space is available or is it allocated berths / finger pontoons??

    If alongside are we going to be rafting and if so how deep?

    Really looking forward to it but still VERY nervous with the close quarters stuff [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Guess just going to have to practice more [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Default Harold Hayles ....

    Is straight pontoon length - so its raft up alongside each other I'm afraid.

    New HM berths are fingers and rafting I believe.

    For Harold Hayles ... please I ask nicely ...

    HH booking is to max number ........ so we need to be extremely careful how we use the space. It's part of the reason I asked for the Last minute Check in !! But I am not allocating space etc. - we'll all be gentlemen on this !!

    There are various types and sizes of boats coming - all with different freeboards and LOA's ... this means that rafting should be started BEFORE pontoon gets full. If you have boat that is suited to alongside another already there - it would be good if you could raft. If we get pontoon full and then start to raft - it will create a problem and mean hefty arms to pull and re-arrange placings ...
    It is also requested that wherever possible you squeeze up nose to nose / tail etc. with as small a gap between boats as poss.

    Use of mooring cleats ... birds nests and other cleat filling styles - please don't do it ... others will need to use the cleat as well.

    Finally Electrical hook-up .... HH has domestic 3 pin house style sockets - so anyone who has marina plug will need to make up a conversion cable. Also there are sockets under the upturned green bins ... you don't all have to connect to the Marina box at inland end of pontoon !!!!

    Sorry about the Lecture - but I think it better that all know before we get into a right ol'mess !!!
