There seems to be a few questions concerning mudweighting and some of you stating you only have the one mudweight.

Well the good news is that you only need ONE mudweight, if you do have two mudweights onboard though, so much the better.

This is how is works:-

The Wherry 'Albion' will already be in position on her mudweights with her bows pointing towards the beach.

All craft to deploy fenders.

Then we need two craft, large-ish heavyweights at around 40ft to Port and Stbd of the Albion that have two mudwiights each with both of them deployed at bow and stern. Bow and stern ropes secured to Albion. I would suggest Brandywine and 'B.A' to fulfil these roles

Then in no particular order - craft to moor either side using head and stern ropes and alternate mudweights, i.e -

Approach the 'raft' from astern, that is to say with YOUR bows (That's the pointy bit) pointing towards the beach. (That's the terra firma stuff with sand on it) If mooring to stbd of the raft have your PORT head and stern ropes ready to tie onto the craft you are coming alongside of.  Look at the craft you are now moored next to, if their mudweight is deployed over THEIR bow, then you deploy your mudweight over the stern of your craft.

It should therefore go without saying that if their mudweight is deployed over the stern of their craft you deploy your mudweight over the bow of your craft and so on.

If mooring to Port of the raft the only difference being that you will need your Stbd head and stern mooring ropes to hand.

Now this bit is important - where mudweighting is concerned, helms rarely need to take heed of the tide, it is the wind that concerns them and the usual practise is bring the bows into wind then deploy mudweights over the bow.

In this case we have to ignore the wind direction as we do need to have the raft in a single line about 50m off the beach in a straight-ish line facing the beach for the photo shoot.

So, when you are approaching the raft from astern of it as previously mentioned, if you make a hash of it (And there is no pressure here as there will be only 100+ pairs of eyes watching you) KEEP GOING AHEAD come round and have another go but move out one or two places so as to allow the craft following you to take the slot that you had your eye on.

This will stop any queu's building up as craft raft up.

Some of you skippers may now be wondering what happens if the scenario occurs of a 'Little-un' being between two 'Big-uns'  -  No problem, the outer 'Big-un' simply passes their head/stern ropes over to the 'Big-un' that is inboard of the 'Little-un' this should maintain the line.

I will of course be stood on top of 'B.A' with my inter-ship communication system in hand (Loud hailer) to verbally assist if required.

Now tell me that is not simple?  -  No?  -  Read it again then.  Smile

Salhouse - Stern on moorings,

I have spoken with Toby - he is the ranger that looks after the moorings at Salhouse Broad.

There are a total of 38 mooring slots available (Ignoring the three / four down at the play area), that is sixteen to the left of the beach and twenty two to the right of the beach.

I have reserved ALL of them for Friday the 24th JUNE.  There is a mooring fee payable of £6 per craft overnight, however Toby has kindly given the NBF s group discount therefore mooring fee's will be £5 per craft Smile  so please make sure that you are flying a forum flag OR have the forum logo stuck to a window. (Logo's can be printed off by going to the bottom of this page and clicking on 'Make my Logo')

Here's how it works - After the raft / photo shoot, Albion will slip from the raft and proceed to berth up alongside the terra firma, NBF members then can go and berth up stern on and have a visit visit onboard Albion, hopefully either making a donation to her cause or signing up as a friend. (Albion will not be staying overnight and will not be paying a mooring fee). There will not be room for all of us to berth until Albion has departed so I respectfully ask volenteers with tenders to stay mudweighted if required. Once Albion has departed that will make room for further NBF craft to berth.  Again if there is insufficient room, tenders will come to the fore. I'm assuming not all members will be staying overnight at Salhouse though.

If we are stuck and oversubscribed for berthing slots then I'm quite happy for craft to put their bows between 'B.A' and my neighbour (whoever that maybe) with there mudweight deployed over thier stern.

Wroxham / Horning trip boats - Toby will contact the relevant organisations that run the trip boats and inform them that there will be around 40 odd craft rafted up on Salhouse Broad for an hour or so. He tells me that he knows the folk in the offices and that this scenario happens when they have their annual raft race get together thing and won't be a problem for them. The raft will be opposite the beach area anyway, not covering the two entrances to the Broad.

Now, who intends:-

BBQ-ing?
Visiting the 'Fur-n-Feathers'?
Visiting 'The Bell'?

The Fur-n-Feathers is not dog friendly inside, but dogs are allowed with owners at the tables outside.

I don't know about the Bell as I have not been there in an age.

I intend to let Macie have a swim and retrieve Richards handbag dogs a couple of times Evil Grin

I will then either:- join in with a BBQ and/or visit the Fur-n-Feathers and/or visit the Bell, with/without my crew as the case maybe but with Macie.  Confused? - so am I  Playful Wink

Griff,

Overnight for us please and most likely BBQ.

We do have a tender but with one toddler and one baby would appreciate a mooring to visit Albion.

If anybody wants to borrow our tender they are more than welcome.

It sounds to me that nothing can possibly go wrong.
But - just in case - we must all take cameras. OK?
