Hi All,

Now that Swancraft have packed up hiring whilst I had been looking to hire Silver Wisper or Pacific Star in order to improve my view over the reeds on the Southern waters I have found (after visting Silverline) that my Mum would have difficulty with the steps. Sticking with the southern waters and with Silver Serenade not available for my preferred dates I have booked Broom Bolero. I had a look on her a week or two back however forgot to ask what the airdraft is, I am looking to go under Beccles Bridge without necessarily waiting for low water, can anybody who has hired her confirm.

I have hired similar boats in the past which have an airdraft of 6ft 6 (for Potter) however Hoseasons states she wont go under Potter so I wondered if she is slightly higher, the multi directional aerial on the front folds down so I am not sure why?

Thanks

Neil

I'm not sure of the exact air draft but you should get under Beccles at most conditions, just remember the TV aerial.

I think the airdraft (minus aerial) is 6'8", but check with the yard. The clearance of Beccles Road bridge is 6'6" at average high water, so the timing of your passage needs to be right.

Hi Neil,
You will need to watch out for high tides as I'm almost sure you will need 6.4 to clear any of the bridges so Old Beccles & Somerleyton plus St Olaves you will need to look out for and time it right to pass under.   Wink

Kindest Regards Mike
