Reading somewhere the other day that they have reduced their fleet to three boats.
They are apparently going to concentrate on building new boats.

But were  these boats available for booking earlier this year? Hope there wasn't  bookings already made, as it doesn't say available at the end of the season, they are at NYA sales pontoons now! I noted Surlingham, Rockland, Martham and Oulton up for sale ( daft names imho!)

Seems rather a swift change of tack, so to speak, for a pretty new hire company. I'm aware of the new boat building enterprise and the staff they took from Oyster, so maybe it's a case of opportunity arose and they took it, but seems odd to drop the other boats that they had spent money on, after only , what - 2 seasons? Maybe 3. I shall watch with interest...

Yeah I've seen those ! Eeeek.

But both are private boats, where strange names are often seen.

My comment was really in relation to hire boats being named after actual locations on The Broads, which could result in some confusion, especially in an emergency situation  for example - "what boat and where are you? " " We are on Surlingham" , or worse, we are on Oulton on Surlingham". In a panicky situation with a dodgy phone signal this could cause a problem. New or infrequent holidaymakers may not even realise that their boat carries the same name as a location. Surely a business could have come up with something a little more dynamic, and with no chance of confusion!

Just my opinion of course...

The Coastguards should cope with that and for that reason all emergency calls should be directed through them - do not even bother totalk to the Ambulance service as all they want is a post code!!
