Not sure if the previous post is exactly correct. Barnes /  Hoseasons will contact everyone with a booking in due course. I think a day or two to settle in might help before being bombarded with phone calls

I had already booked Royall Ambassador booked for April this year. I contacted Barnes Brinkcraft yesterday and they are waiting for all of the paper work to come through. I had confirmation that all bookings will honoured and letters will be sent out in due course.

I think I was a bit too quick off the mark as they only took over Royall's yesterday. I'm sure they would appreciate a bit of time to get sorted. Smile

Kind Regards

I have spoken with a very pleasant girl at BarnesBrinkcraft, who told me that all affected customers, such as myself, will shortly be getting letters both from Hoseasons and Royalls.

The news is, of course, disappointing to old fogeys like us, just as it was disappointing when Brinkcraft, from whom we used to hire (Brinkster 2, Brink of Time, and Brinkeeta 2), was taken over by Barnes in the early 70s. (I can't tell you exactly when because Bill Maxted's got all my old Blakes brochures!!). I'm beginning to get a bit paranoid.

Royalls regulars will be relieved to know that Paul and Steve both have jobs with BarnesBrinkcraft.

I'm getting a bit of a complex with Boatyards closing down or selling up. Confused

I hired boats from Topcraft at Oulton Broad for many years but they stopped hiring out.

I then hired boats from Swancraft at Brundall for many years but they stopped hiring out.

I hired from Royalls for the 1st time last year and booked a boat for this year. Not only have they sold up but a year earlier than expected. Gasp

I think it must be me!!! Scared

Anyway good to hear some have still got their jobs. Good luck to the prior owners of Royalls  and to the new owners whom I look forward to meeting in April. Cheers

Kind Regards

Off topic, Maddie, you have me to thank for your boat being called Red Admiral.

Since things were busy at the Royalls yard and I live in Reedham, Alan rang to ask me and the wife to ferry Red Arrow, as she then was, from Jimmy Pearson's yard through to Hoveton.

It was a nice warm day and we were thoroughly enjoying the trip, when, as were pottering up through Yarmouth, a police-style siren sounded behind us, and a BA Ranger's launch came alongside. "Was this our boat?" "What were we doing?" "Did we know the boat wasn't taxed?"

We were able to satisfy the Rangers, but we were convinced Alan Royall had put them up to it. He swears he didn't, but I still have my doubts.

Anyway, as a reward for doing him a favour, I was allowed to choose a new name, provided it was reasonably close to the old one to avoid a lot of expensive sign-writing. Hence: "Red Admiral" - and, after Janet and Alan had refurbished her for themselves, a very nice boat too.
