    Used to be the Rio Grande from Kingline in Horning, only hired her once when I first returned to the Broads about 12 years ago. Nice boat from a handling point of view but unless Herbert Woods have moved the internal steering position from where it used to be you had better pray for really good weather!Visibilty from the internal helm was pretty bad as it was set a long way back from the front windows and the boat has an up-tilted nose which really doesn't help the view.Certainly used to be a very nice boat if you could get along with the internal helm arrangement.
