We have nine boats coming along to the Thames meet at South Stoke, we have plenty of room should you decide to come along 

Some of the usual suspects are sadly missing from the list this year Sad

We are hoping to join you Pat. Will confirm by the weekend.  Are any 27's attending - still looking for the opportunity to look at one?

We had a great meet (now known as the middle Thames meet) 13 boats (14 if you include a 27 that dropped in hoping for a mooring for the pub) and 3 crews by road.

I’m very pleased to say that we’re booked in for next year, although the house is on the market. £3m if anyone would like to secure our future meets

Phew! - not that I'm the jealous type or anything - but at first reading I thought you meant your own house!  Laughing

£3M/400 = £7500....the price of a F23.

ha...and you just said 50 never posted.
3M/350 = £8571. We could all have sole use of the property for one day of the year for the rest of our lives for £8571.

Just to say a big thank you for all the organisers efforts and special thanks for all the assistance given to me personally. It made attending possible.
Nice to see some old faces and indeed some new ones.

wow...I cant see that being on the market for long...that's price equivalent to a couple of terraced houses in south london. Also I can't see why the new owner would want a bunch of freemanites camping out at the bottom of their new garden next august...so unless the house is disappearing into a hole in the ground I can't see that remaining unsold by august 2019!

That there's a bus service should definitely clinch it! And since many of us are less agile than formerly the layout of bedrooms on the ground floor should not be overlooked! Nor the proximity of the Perch & Pike ...

Cause it's in the deeds ! I quote.....( This is why it's cheap )

"The purchaser must allow a group of unshaven beer swilling Erks and their followers to tie their ramshackle plastic bathtubs ( with fenders down,) to the 600 foot key heading facing the Boogle and Swedg for a week every August for time immemorial. 
Bear baiting and Morris dancing is specifically not allowed as it would upset the itinerate boat dwellers when they are scorching their spare ribs and veggie burgers. Any remaining wrecks left after the weeks debauchery become the responsibility of the new landowner to dispose of at his or her cost. No liability for police action must be borne by the visiting group, all accrued costs again fall on the new incumbent !"
So there you have it in black and white
lol!
