You were following me weren't you budgie man!

I saw these further up at the Ferry House on Sunday. They were also at this location (Woods End, Bramerton) the previous week too.

Lovely looking things. I had to explain to the wife/kids what a Wherry was. They couldn't understand the difference between a Wherry and a large sailing boat.....

Our paths seem to cross watermonkey. The smaller of the two Olive was the Colmans familie's weekend gin Palace, nice boat to be messing about on the river in!

Weird really. I actually did a lot of mileage (IMO) this weekend. Popped down on Saturday morning from Thorpe (home base) to Waveney River Centre (very nice by the way) and back on Sunday. The Yare was weird on Sunday. It was so incredibly quiet, I thought it was November or something. I know it was choppy around Reedham and Somerleyton and I passed a few sailys (who didn't see the wind suddenly dropping mid afternoon and were almost stranded)

Can I point out, by the way, to the sailys that when you're under power, the speed limits DO apply to you (I timed one of three doing 8mph around British Sugar in a 5mph limit) even if you are late for lunch!

Total I reckon around 55 miles (beats my normal 20 odd on  a weekend)

I dunno if any of you subscribe to Canal and Riverboat but I saw somewhere in there that there are apparently 7 wherries still in action and "White Moth" has received a Defra grant to get an electric engine added.

Can anyone clarify?

Cheers

The count seems about right. White Moth did get the electric upgrade and was out on the water at the end of June. They had a few problems to start with, and it would be interesting to see how that prject worked out for them.

Yes Stu 7 in all but Wherry Yacht Charter trust has three Hathor, Olive & Noranda There's also White Moth available for hire Solace and Maude in private hands and of course Albion. There was an 8th Lord Roberts which was left sunk in a dyke to stop her (him?) rotting any more but that was some years ago and I don't know what the current situation is with that.
