Hi all

We're starting our holiday tomorrow, on Sapphire Light from Herbert Woods. We pick the boat up at 4ish but 3 of the party are coming up by train and arrive at Acle at 3.55. They'll get a cab to Potter Heigham.

I would like to get to Acle, Stokesby or Great Yarmouth in preparation for a trip south on Sunday. Given that we're unlikely to leave Potter until 4.30-5.00 is it realistic to expect to get as far as Great Yarmouth. The estimated journey time is 3 hrs 45 mins. My concern is that if we can't get to Gt Yarmouth that we won't be able to moor at either Acle or Stokesby.

Thoughts please?

Cheers
Gary

Unless you have to have a pub to moor at you can always moor at what I still call The Stracey Arms.   There is a little shop/cafe there which has very basic essentials.    At the moment she does not carry a lot of stock. From this week she will have fresh eggs.   You will always get room to moor at Stracey, cost of £5 per night.  Good safe moorings on posts.    Always moor into the tide especially down there as the tide runs very fast.

You are due for good weather.   Have a fantastic time and all of you stay safe please.

It is getting dark at 10 ish.

Hi there ,
Probably a bit late on this , but I'd recommend mooring at acle , there is a hire boatyard there where you can moor for the night free , and do have a choice of the bridge inn pub resturant or pedros resturant , or as said earlier moor at Stracey arms windmill moorings for the night , you may be lucky at stokesby moorings ,
Good luck

steve and vicky

Hi all
Thanks for your suggestions, we managed to get the last spot at Acle on the river on Saturday night. However, we made the rookie mistake of leaving the inverter on overnight so had no batteries yesterday morning.

The boatyard were out by 10am and replaced them but it meant that we'd missed the chance to head south. We had a long cruise to Stalham and back to go to Tescos. As we were in Acle both nights we ate at The Bridge Inn on Saturday and Pedros yesterday, both were very nice.

Went for a 5k run this morning and we're now en route to Gt Yarmouth, ahead of crossing south later.

It's much quieter than the two occasions we've been during the school holidays.

So easy to do ,  leaving the inverter on.   Never mind all's well that ends well.     Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

Hi all,

Does the inverter run off the domestic batteries or the batteries used to start the engine. I have always thought that the inverter was run from the domestics,  Question

Kind Regards

My immediate thought was also that the inverter should run from batteries other than the starter battery.

So in theory you should always be able to start the engine and eventually recharge all of your batteries.

The boats that I've been on with invertors always had them running off the domestic batteries, leaving the starter battery to do it's job no matter how long you left the invertor on, usually when the battery voltage drops too low for the invertor to work properly a sound is heard, once heard , never forgotten!

I do remember several years ago one of the Barnes boats had a switch you had to change over after starting the engine so that the starter battery could/would be recharged.

But surely if this boat was the same the hirer would now be aware, and would not be suggesting the inverter had caused it.
