Hi everyone.  I wasn't sure if I should post this in with the other "First Timer Advice" thread and sort of "Hijack" it so decided to err on the side of caution and start this thread!  Since registering a couple of days ago, I've had time to browse through the forums and discover soooo much interesting information!  Ah - I nearly forgot - my wife and I have booked our first broads boating holiday for the Easter break and are really looking forward to it.  Most of the questions that I would have asked at the boatyard on the day!, have already been answered within various threads but there is one question that I would like to ask, (and apologies if I have missed the answer elsewhere!).  We have a very well behaved dog (and we are very responsible dog owners!).  What facilities are there on the broads for disposing of "mans' best friends' finest"???  I forgot to ask the boat firm when booking the boat!! Doh!!

Welcome Chris and Brenda.  We have found that 'service stations' vary considerably.  In some places there are some and they are properly serviced other places where the servicing is poor and others where, as Bill has said, there are no specific facilities.  In other words, pretty well the same as anywhere else.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.  The "other 'alf" has told me to make it clear that she has done the Broads a couple of times before, it's just me that hasn't set foot on the water (so to speak!). Gasp   Anyway, that was when she was a young person which was a long time ago!

As is always the case, we both looked through various brochures and at various websites (unfortunately not this one!) before deciding on the best offer etc to take.  I think (having read various threads on this board) that our choice is ok - we've booked a cruiser (direct contact) from Silverline Marine at Brundall and already we are very impressed with the customer service that we have received.

As we are both ex-caravanners (sic)(not sure if I should have revealed that!),  Wink  I'm pretty sure we will adapt fairly quickly to the life on the water!!  We will be keeping a diary both written and visual and will post some details after the holiday.

Oo-er - where's the message gone?? All I could see was - "Sorry, this message can not be displayed at this time." Confused

Someone may have to learn how to walk on water if you carry on like that Playful Wink

Hi, and welcome to the site....

I think you have chosen well... Silverline are one of the best and highest quality operators on the Broads in my opinion, I'm sure many will agree, and I've never heard anyone say otherwise, which is unusual as pleasing everyone all of the time is near on impossible.. . but they seem to have got it off to a fine art from what I can tell!

All the best

Dan

P.S Which boat did you book - you may find a pic in the 'hireboat section' that isn't from the brochures Wink

Ooops!! well - perhaps not that long ago then  Wink .  I hope this "mud weight" thingymajig that I've read about is securely locked away and I get to keep the key.  Hmmm, I think I'm digging myself a deeper hole here so I'll stop whilst I'm slightly ahead.

Thanks Dan, we've booked the Silver Rhapsody, which I believe is a new boat for this year and is No 2 in its class, the Silver Melody being the No 1??  I have had a look around the various websites for a picture of this boat but perhaps it's a bit "too" new yet??
