Can't help on the moorings front, but your idea of making the screen folding sounds more imperative if you moor above Wroxham. You could find yourselves trapped above the bridge for extended periods otherwise. Good luck.

Regards, Ray.

Whatever happens now, I'm blaming it on Brexit. Everyone else is!

Since about Thursday of last week I haven't seen more than 6'9" and at the moment It's a tad over 6'3".

I seem to remember querying your air draft in relation to the bridge on another thread. Without folding screens you could find your cruising range somewhat restricted.

Sorry to go slightly of topic , but we used to keep our first boat in the porter Haylett yard other side of the bridge ,although it's lovely that side of the bridge with a nice cruise upto coltishall, we were caught out one year with high tides in October, luckily for us bister craft yard in wroxham helped us out by keeping our boat there for a few days and the staff at porter Haylett yard brought back to the yard for us , we saw out the last few monthes at the yard and decided to get moorings other side of the bridge , which saw end up at the lovely moorings at broadsedge marina stalham ,

Hi Pixie,

I understand that you paid for mooring at The Hotel Wroxham £10 for the night and that they charge £10 for the day. Was there in addition any commitment to dining there?


Kind Regards
Alan...

Thank you everyone for taking the time to reply, it is very much appreciated.  We are presently still beside the bridge, now with a flat battery...  But hoping we may get under tomorrow with a good dollop of luck and pixie dust!
Our aircraft is 6'9 so quite high.  It's certainly proving to be a steep learning curve and looking forward to actually being able to enjoy being on the boat than worrying about it.
Thanks again all x

More excited than an excited thing...
