What other reg number do you have for the Broads ? If it was onky there for one period of time it's highly unlikely that it had 2 different numbers.

I agree with Karen. Our old boat was off the Broads for ten years on the Thames and at York. On her return she kept her original Broads number .

You may well find a call to the tolls section of the BA may help you get to the bottom of yours boats numbers. They are normally a mine of information.

Another good way of checking provenance on a hire craft is to check underneath all of the berth  cushions. Many had names written on at least one to help the yard out then back correctly after winter storage  .

To find an interior picture you best bet would be to track down an appropriate Blake's,hoseasons or similar hire catalogue . They quite often come up on e bay .

Good luck

Graham

Had a look through 1980 & 81 Hoseasons brochures and couldn't find any interior pictures.

Found this Aston brochure from 1990. Not very clear I am afraid.

Hi there,
Most the aston boats , had 2.2bmc engines in them ( our old Aston boat did , as most hireboats from the southern broads did or other large engines to cope with the strong tides current flows )
