Agree with most of the comments on here so far - let's just hope that justice gets done!

On the yard itself, following on from Andy Who's comment earlier, I pass along the road past the yard every day, usually twice each way, and had noticed the fencing. I must say that unless they are planning on putting razor wire across the gaps in it, then it won't really keep anyone out! Still, we'll see in the fullness of time.

Hi there

I agree with Scooter on the size of the gaps in the fencing, one assumes they are doing the framework ready for the boarding or fence panels.
The gaps at the minute are big enough to walk thru with ease.
One interesting point... l was told there was a post with an acorn on it at this gap in the fence at the start of the week, Does this mean that it's a public right of way?

I was told also that the burnt out boats were being crushed and put in skips to be taken away, l have not seen this for myself but the area seems clear of most of the damaged boats except for the Hampton which l beleive was a private boat.

The fench is the least thing to worry about as there is full access via the river.

If these "are so's"  are that determined to cause this sort of damage than river access would still be available to them.
Nicking a small boat or rib would be just as easy.

There is access from the staith at the junction to their yard and the public staith to Stalham which takes you throught Richardsons to the Broads Museum.

I dont think you will ever stop access unless you stop all boat / river  access as well.

Hi All

Well this is the end of the road for the boats, it's hard to imagine getting a 37ft boat in one of these things.

Bye 4 now

Sad to see them just being crushed and skipped - but I suppose there is actually little else that can be done.

Wonder if they are insured? I'm sure in any event Richardsons will still be losing out.

I know my boat is insured at 'as purchased' invoice value, so I wonder how the Richardsons boat are valued, as no doubt they have either been owned by Richardsons for many years (ie Thames, Hearts etc as many of them were)? Wonder if they will get an insurance payout at an agreed trade value, if they were insured at all?

Sad indeed.

Cheers,

James.

Commercial insurance policies generally have a fairly hefty deductible (excess) associated with them, so while Richardson's will get something if they're insured it will likely fall short of the full value.

So why not sue the parents of the yobs responsible, for the difference? Probably won't get anywhere but would surely frighten them and they'll maybe think twice before doing anything like it again.....

Did I miss a post Steve? I thought I had kept up with this one. What do they think caused it then? Blush

Ted
