Hello everyone

This is my first post to this very useful and interesting forum - I am visiting the Broads shortly as a hirer so have been lurking a while and absorbing the wisdom.

One question I have is where is it possible to get a shower - the boat I am hiring only has basic toilet facilities and nothing that could be deemed a shower.  My base is Loddon and would be hoping to get at least one shower (!) during the 4 day hire (pooh!)

Can anyone suggest anywhere?  Can I moor safely in Norwich where there must be some public facilities in a swimming baths or sports centre?

Thanks

Richard

Good showers at Beccles. Or you can go to and THE GUIDE and search for a catagory of "showers available"

There are shower facilities at Oulton Broad at the Yacht station and at the Waveney River Centre.

Hope this helps.

Most boats have showers some baths don't forget. However hot water is limited, 'staggered' showering during the day is recomended with a top up to the water tank before nightfall. If you do run low on water please make sure that the water pump is not running continuosly. If it is switch it off it will burn out if run dry for a period. Showering whilst the boat is in motion can be a bit dangeous if you lose your footing.

Well you said, "Aim for the green post!" Bill...

There are safe moorings at Norwich. Last time I was there it cost about a tenner to stay the night but there are showers available. The moorings are nice and close to the city centre amenities also. I would reccommend going.

regards

Jim

Don't give up on the showers on board ... they can be a bit cramped and so on and so forth but there is no better feeling after a long (hopefully) hot days cruising than to grab a nice cool shower, slip into shorts and t shirts and spend the last couple of hours of sunchine on deck with a Pimms, a beer or a G&T
