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

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

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.

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.
