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 .
That's so cool thanks for your info guys much appreciated all the photos that come up of an Aston 42 are of my boat it's the only boat out of the 7 made that has the configuration of the rubbing strake it has 3 at different lengths ive checked photos of other boate there all the same except mineI'll have to find the other number and I'll post it but from what I have found today while I was going through the boat it was m704 so I'm hoping when I take her back to the broads I can get the number reinstated I love the old broucher lol love the history Thanks again
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 )
