Aah - Yes I know what you mean now. Pulpits seem unpopular these days on the hirefleets, I assume because they look rubbish when bent - which I guess happens regularly...

I would have also thought with the railings like on your boat keith getting under bridges like potter and wroxham would be easier than having the original railings as they always seem to stick out.

James, the lack of pulpit makes getting under a lot easier, and the current bar makes for lining up the centre of the boat with the bridge a lot easier at Wroxham. Potter I don't know because I haven't been brave enough to take it through, always leave that one to the pilot. I think one of the other problems with pulpits, especially on the tidal Southern sections, is that they always seem to get in the way of the front mooring rope. Even if you think you have cleared it, the tide turns and its back in the way again. I guess the answer is to have cleats mounted at the front between the pulpit mountings, rather than at the centre of the bow as most hire boats do.

The low tides seem much higher this year!!!
