I would love to move our boat up to the Broads, but last week gave me a real eye opener! I saw only one marina selling petrol!? It would be a real shame if I can't get our boat on the Broads through the lack of petrol.
Do you know of any information I can get as to where petrol is available?
Lots of private boats run on petrol but most boat yards don't sell it. I think this is due to the strict safety rules covering the storage and sale of petrol which is a lot more volatile than diesel. It's a pity because petrol causes less environmental damage as it just evaporates. Some boat yards do have a supply of petrol. Maycraft is an example. I usually fill up cans at Tesco's in Stalham. It's cheaper there.
We keep our boat at Stalham. Petrol from boat yards is non-existsnt. We too go to Tescos at Stalham to fill up. Not really a problem. Dont let this put you off, The Norfolk Broads is breath taking. We live 5 minutes off a canal in North Yorkshire, but prefer to keep our boat on the Broads 200 miles away. Stewart
