Are they trying to frighten the holidaymakers away?

We love the Broads

As a hire boater this video would scare me off for life if i had never been before. It has to be one of the least helpful videos i have ever seen.

It also reinforces the stereotype that private boat owners don't like hire boaters, when i know that is not the case in the vast majority of cases.

What a load of rubbish! Who do we know who has been hit by hire boats recently, has a passion for making videos (usually of himself) and would want to use a voice-generator for the voice-over as his own is so recognisable?

Answers on a postcard please to...erm, pick any one of the BA free moorings  tounge-in-cheek

Oh, you should turn the sound on. She sounds like the lady who calls me on the phone to tell me I've won some fantastic prize. All I have to do to claim it is to travel (at my own expense) to the Bahamas or some such place.

Published on 28 Sep 2017


Here are some safety tips and advice for anyone who is going to the Norfolk Broads and hiring a boat.
Firstly, let me begin by welcoming you to the Norfolk Broads. I would like to share some information with you with the intentions of aiding your boating holiday whilst you are on the waterways.
The first thing I would like to bring to your attention is what you should do if you have a collision with another boat.
If you damage another boat after you have collided, it is a legal requirement that you exchange details with the operator of the other vessel.
Failure to do so is a violation of a navigational bye law and you can face criminal prosecution under maritime law if you fail to do this.
Information is in the description below.
We do understand that in most cases the hire boat companies probably do not tell you to do this but you must understand that it is very important that if you damage somebody else's boat, then you must make your personal details available to that person.
If you do not want to leave your personal details with that person for whatever reason, then you must contact the Broads authority immediately and let them know what has happened.
If you came back to your car in a supermarket to find that somebody had smashed into it and damaged it and then fled the scene, you would be very angry indeed.
You would also be committing a criminal offence.
This is exactly the same with boats, it is a maritime law.
If you can imagine for a moment being a private boat owner and coming back to your vessel, your pride and joy, only to discover that it has been damaged by a hire boat and the hire boat has fled the scene, then I am sure you can imagine that this is very annoying.
To be quite fair it is totally unacceptable.
It is not acceptable for you to damage somebody else's boat and then fail to give your personal details.
You would not like it to happen to yourself and it is not acceptable to treat people this way.
Now, hire boaters are very welcome on the Norfolk Broads and they bring a lot of revenue to the area, however, we also understand that the hire boat companies more often than not do not give their customers enough tuition with operating the boats.
In many cases the boats can be forty five feet long and can also weigh up to ten tonnes.
So when they collide with another boat, they are invariably going to be doing some damage.
To help you prevent yourself from doing extensive damage in the first place, I would urge you to keep your speed down.
The slower you go then ultimately the less damage you are going to cause.
We do fully understand that a lot of the hire boats are very difficult to moor up and navigate, we do appreciate that.
Many of them have very poor visibility when reversing.
Reversing can be very difficult to do in most boats.
In most cases you just don't really seem to have a lot of control in reverse and it only takes a little wind and it really soon starts to fall apart very quickly.
Now the best advice we can give you with regards to that is just to keep your speed down because if you are going to hit something, then obviously the slower you go, then the less damage you are going to do.
The majority of you are likely to have multiple people on your boat, so if you are coming in to moor up, then do not let the other people sit on the boat staring into their smart phones.
Facebook will still be thereafter you have moored up.
Please tell the other people on your boat to come out and fend off.
When your all fending off, then you are not going to damage another boat.
It is not rocket science.
One other point is you will all notice the bounty of bird life on the Norfolk Broads.
You will see so many geese, swans, ducks and herons, just to mention a few.
Swans, ducks and geese make their nests in the reeds and also are generally floating nests.
When you go past in your hire boat and are speeding, then you will destroy the bird's nests and kill their young.
Furthermore, when you go past a moored boat and you are speeding, then the crew of that other boat may be cooking or boiling water and you can cause them great harm.
Waves also cause bank erosion and require the waterways to be dredged.
Now, as we said before, we welcome you to the Norfolk Broads and we know that you bring a lot of revenue to Norfolk.
This is fantastic, however, all we ask of you is that you respect other people's boats and you respect the environment.
Thank you for watching this video.
Information about byelaws is available below. Byelaw 69 refers to collisions.
