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

Morning everyone.

The story going round the yard, is that the previous people who were picked up by the police have since been released, but they have picked up someone else, this person has been bailed.  The interesting point is that this person worked in the cafe in Richardsons yard.  
Like I say this is the info going around the yard.

Just back from a week in Wroxham. Saw the boats this week and a very sad sight. We were told that one of the boats had just been sold and was ready to be prepared but this is one that will be crushed now. Thanks Roya for the events on Sunday morning. We wondered what it was all about when we saw the police on the other bank. If security keeps having to be stepped up I wonder what will be the efect on people's enjoyment of the broads.

It throws two different views on the issue as we all know .
With a police or security presence, you feel you have a peace of mind, and on the other hand, as you rightly say, you automatically think " is it really that bad around here " first impressions............
