Blooming heck that lot would frighten the horses.

Having a relaxing drink at the end of the day is part of going on holiday on the Broads, if you couldn't drink we wouldn't be going on the Broads and I would say that would apply to 99% of folk.

Having an alcoholic drink or two or three does not equate to going out on the lash.      

On that note -

Everything in moderation usually works. I sometimes worry when this type of thread appears on this forum as I believe that the more it is advertised  then the more it will be seen to be frowned upon .( only by some may I add ). Like parts of the broads, some things are best kept hush !!

I actually think my wife is starting to panic a little; she's a bit nervous when it comes to the 'unknown' and we're having a trip to Wroxham tomorrow to check out cruisers.  If she still feels uncomfortable about the whole situation after seeing several vessels for herself maybe a holiday cottage with the use of a day boat will be a good compromise.

As a 70 year old granny please don't think that people on the Broads drink irresponsibly because it is just not so.


Please hire a boat,  we are hiring in June,  for goodness sake there is nothing to be concerned about.  My advice is don't moor at pubs,  take your food with you,  moor early and relax,  do you fish.

My husband fishes and I like to paint and read.  So you see we are not so different from yourself I am sure.


You will be really missing out if you don't.

Please do not be put off, I have hired cruisers twice a year for the last 15 years.

I have had 2 or 3 beers whilst cruising and, once moored up, whether at a pub or simply on board, have easily drunk whatever I want.

Methinks your missus is looking at a way out of this type of holiday.

In addition, although there are lots of stag and hen parties on the Broads, I cannot think of any drunken and out of control people actually at the helm to any extent as to cause issues.

as I say I think your good lady does not want to come really and is doing her best to put you off as a result.

You may be right, all will be revealed tomorrow.  Still the next time she arranges for me to drive her to Lancashire to see her family I will suddenly reasons I don't want to drive a 520 mile round trip.  There's more than one way to skin a cat  Evil Grin
