Saw this and my heart leapt ,  oh but probably only an engineer taking a boat on a trial run after a problem.  If only it could have been the start of holidays once more.

We cruised from Horning to South Walsham and then on to Malthouse and then back to Horning on Sunday 22nd, counted 15-16 private powered craft and 4 sailcraft, like the BA say - its how you interpret the guidance, incidentally we didn't see any authorities afloat.

John.

ps...we are livaboards so we're out legitimately.

Regards

John.

”ps...we are livaboards so we're out legitimately.”

As has been pointed out on every social media platform I’ve read, all private boaters are allowed to use their boats for exercise and/or recreation, not just liveaboards.

I’m out in my motor cruiser most weekends and sometimes during the week. Have seen and spoken to rangers on several occasions and my presence out on the Broads has never been mentioned, far less challenged.

It has to be said that if I had covid on my boat and kept alone I would be of no risk to anybody.

If I did not have covid but I was vulnerable I can think of no where safer than on a boat on a wild mooring or cruising down a river.

I am elderly. I am vulnerable. Very much at risk.

Please allow me to make an informed decision.

See Pallys post - you just cannot overnight at the moment, partly as I guess that would "overlap" into second homesscenario.

Wondered if anyone would start to mention about holiday homes that have been hit hard , along with the hire boats.

Short term not worried especialy about either - lets worry about the BA trying, illegally but unsuccessfully, to keep us away from our own boats even to do maintenance!!!!!!!

Absolutely Marshman!

For us personally we also had the distances and requirements around them to follow, throughout the various restrictions. However, the BA (or rather the BNA !) have dealt with this all so badly, and to such an extent they have also influenced businesses to impose restrictions to curtail boaters activities too!

K&M, I'm pleased to see you noted my rebranding of the Broads Authority as the Broads No-Authority  (BNA) a couple of weeks ago, after their ridiculous attempt to try to prevent us from, lawfully, using our boats. Cheers

It's a more accurate descriptor than BNP!  Exterminate
