According to Radio Norfolk on the 8am news, there was a fire at Richardson's yard last night, I think I heard 6 boats destroyed. Nothing on the BBC Norfolk web page yet.

  You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and
it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't,  use the duct tape.

Thank You Poppy,

This information although alarming is vital to the likes of myself and others who moor their boats at Richardsons.

I would have been totally oblivious to this until much later in the day or even tommorrow had you not posted.

As it is I had a phone call from Steve this morning about it and have managed to contact the yard and find out that mine (and others) boats are not involved.

Stewart02 if you are looking in then as long as your boat is in its usual place it does not affect yours either.

We do have a roving reporter on scene (Andy Who) and he has confirmed that there are 6 boats either badly damaged or totally written off.

For those who know the yard these boats are on Merlin Quay (behind the Toilet Block)and are the boats for sale.

Andy has taken some photos and will either put them up on the site later or will e-mail them to me who will then do so.

The story going around is that the police have made 4 arrests of local youths in connection with a fire at a boatyard. (I am not sure of how much rumour I can put up on the site but I think if thats all I say I will be ok).

Thanks also to Steve and Andy for keeping us in the picture.

Rod

You mean the other Starboard then...

Just spoke to someone at the yard as we are worried about our boat, about 8 of the ex hire boats & 1 private boat for sale have been destroyed, they were moored on the Merlin quay up near the playground, no one was injured as these boats weren't being used.
the majority of the boats in Kingfisher quay (outside the cafe) had had the ropes undone and set adrift.

Our posts must have crossed Rod, thanks for the call

I wonder if the youths that were, supposedly, arrested in conjunction to this crime were also involved in the fire at Potter Heigham where a number of boats were destroyed, including one that my collegue at work was buying at the time.

Hi there

I have just got back from the yard, I have taken some pictures and I will attept to uplift them in the next few minutes.  The fire services were till gone 2am, I think they did a FANTASIC JOB, when you look how many boats were around the blaze, they managed to keep everything in that area, apart from a few melted canopy windows, I did not see anymore damage.
Any way will try and do the photos now.

Regards

ANDY
