Hi All, I am looking forward to my next Broads visit next week, 67 years after my first memorable boating holiday.
I always choose a boat that can normally pass under Wroxham Bridge as the stretch up to Coltishall is a favourite. Our boat next week will be Silver Wisper 40 ft and I would welcome advice as to whether she will be able to turn at the pool at  the lock. Thanks to all for the previous helpful advice and information.

Cheers, Johnboy

Yes, there will be room to turn.

Been hit by another boat? Report the incident to the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s dedicated accident reporting line on 023 8023 2527 which is monitored 24 hours a day.  Help to make the Broads safer.

Speaking of which,   my memory is getting bad.   When you get to where the river divides (near to the Norfolk Mead) do you go left or right and are the moorings a long way from there?

It’s on the right, and about 200 yds to the moorings. The nearest pub, the recruiting sergeant does great food, but suggest you book if you want to eat inside. Also suggest you try kayak ing pass the lock it’s a loverly stretch of river

Thank you.    As much as I would love to Kayak,  if I got in it ,  I would never get out of it.   Those times are passed me by now unfortunately, but hubby would love it.

Nice thought.   I appreciate the reminder of which way to go.    We hope to be up there in May.  Hope the weather holds.

Use the ropes to turn it - far far easier!!!

Shuffling backwards and forwards will stir up the bottom and as its not especially deep you do stand some chance of picking up weed/dead leaves. I always check my filter after going up that stretch but I suspect I may be the only one!!!! It can also get a bit weedy. The moorings up there are limited to perhaps two/three boats at the most and are informal, not BA moorings.

Thanks for all your comments. Turning on the ropes is a good option even though we will have bow thrusters. It is weedy on that last stretch but so far hasnt caused a problem on previous trips.
Can I assume that 40ft is too much past Wayford Bridge?

Cheers, Johnboy

I have taken Lightning (43ft) up to the end of navigation at Dilham above Wayford Bridge. If moorings are full it can be a little tricky to turn but it is possible.
