I seem to recall an earlier thread about the bridge pilot number changing.

I'll have a look and see what I can find. I may well have uypdated my own list becuase we phoned the pilots office August bank hol to check levels before setting off fron Ranworth.

will post back.

Thanks guys for finding the correct info Smile

I did try and find it yesterday before we headed out for the day, but  I think I must have added it my little book of info that I keep at the boat.

I will now put the number in my mobile phone!

Cheers all, Karen

Hi All,

The bridge pilot service is now operated by Norfolk Broads Direct and the mobile number already given is indeed correct.

However, this pilot service is only vailable now to hire boats and is no longer offered to private boat owners.

Mmmmm. It seems to me that at this time of the year they would be glad of the extra cash from private boats. £20 a time would make about £100 an hour at suitable times, assuming 1 boat every 10mins and a full booking at low water times!
I will check up on this next week when we are down again as this will mean no upriver journeys for us! Once a pilot has taken our boat through once so that I can see the clearance for myself, I will then do it, but NOT before(Read coward). I am not doubting you Darren, but that seems to be a step backwards by someone in charge again! Frown

You only get one body, please it as often as you can! I do....
Morgage free and afloat at last too!

We don't use the pilot to take us through the bridge, but keep the number handy so we can ring and check water levels if necessary.  Only one or twice a year are we in the postition of needing this info, usually when out on a main holiday and therefore with limited access to up to date info.
