Dave Berry went to France to run a charter fleet on the inland waterways. So far as I know he's still doing that.

Growing up as a kid i used to go down at the boatyard all the time. It was always very busy.
We kept our horses on the marshes next to the boat yard. I enjoyed many late summer evenings watching the boats, the  swans (several black swans) and riding our horses. On a dark misty night, the swans used to apprear through the mist it was really peaceful but scary sometimes! Lovely memories.
And David Berry is still today in France and doing okay on boat repairs etc.  

Kindest Regards

Just came across this reference to Easticks Boatyard. I remember my first holiday on the Broads in the mid-60's on an Easticks hire boat called Ormesby Broad. A two berth white grp cruiser. Had a great time and been hooked on the broads ever since. I wonder where that boat is now.

My first holiday on the Norfolk Broads was on a Easticks boat called Ormesby Broad. It was a white GRP aft cockpit cruiser about 26ft long, 2 berth. This would have been in the mid 60's.

I used to work at Jenners of Thorpe (yard next to townhouse hotel) which was part of the Caister group and we ran some of the Eastick,s fleet can’t remember  the names but large centre cockpits , the steering wheels looked like they came from a bus and were at the same angle as they would have been in a bus,they handled very well .Adrian.

Our first boat was also Maraleen from Easticks in June 1973.
It had been brilliantly maintained and was a lovely looking boat.

Wilfred,

Was this the boat ? If so, it's not been registered on The Broads since at least 1990.

Ormesby Broad also featured in my first visit to The Broads in 1968. I was part of a Scout sailing trip that was to become known as the SWAN expedition. As an 11 year old I was on a yacht with the senior leaders (Peggy from HW). There were about 20 yachts in the fleet and we were also accompanied by an older couple, Reg & Val, on Ormesby Broad. In those days none of the yachts had engines and Ormesby Broad was frequently involved in towing  yachts that had run aground, got left behind etc.
