Robin,

you will know that my experience is similar to yours having also only hired yachts... I won't mention the other yard I've hired from. It wouldn't be kind, but it bears out JM's basic contention!

Hi Danny,
I must dig out some old photos of the particular yard you are referring to! Back in the 60s the quayheadings were well maintained with flower beds arranged along the banks, the sheds were immaculate and so were the boats. It is sad to see how run down it all looks now.
cheers
Mat

Mat & Danny, I wonder if the yard that you refer to has a reception area that hasn't seen a broom in years! And you should see their boats sheds!!!!!!

Jenny Morgan,
Being the name of my boat and the generic name applied to the flag atop of a Norfolk Wherry mast, unique to Broadland. Now you know!

Hi. I agree with your comments regarding the stretch near Acle, with some boats half submerged. A total eyesore. I assume the owners are still paying for mooring fees.
I can remember when not so long ago, the stretch just upstream of the Ferry Inn at Stokesby was a boat graveyard, but thankfully that has been cleared and made very presentable. Smile

Have a great day,Keith

the biggest anomaly must be the half submerged boat  at toad hall river thurne with the (i assume) b.a.radar speed check sign perched on top . this must be seen as actively encouraging the practice of leaving boats to rot on their moorings

It may be a BA sign, but I doubt very much that the BA will have sited it there.  I will make a point of asking our Thurne beat ranger to consider "collecting" it.

Mat,

I don't remember ever seeing flower beds there, or a broom Peter!! The quay heading is in a very sorry state and is often very close to flooding at high tide  (I am sure it must do at times). It is a shame, as the boats would bring much more pleasure to many more people if they were properly maintained and rigged.

We did ok in the summer, and had some enjoyable sailing, but once again there were too many niggling problems...


Danny

I have had many holiday on the broads and for a few years now I have seen the same boat moored alongside the river bank, between Yarmouth and acles, a highend flybridge. It has been getting more & more dilapidate I even enquired to see if it was for sale but could not get the owner's details, so is this another boat that will sink into the broads?
