With regards to paying to moor at Herbert Woods, I also had to pay for the first time this year. It is also worth noting that they will not allow visitors to park in their car park under any circumstances. Only HW customers can park there and that does not extend to people paying to moor overnight.

For the last few years I have moored overnight at Herbert Woods during the 3RR and then been met by some friends in a car and we have driven around various vantage points to watch the race before returning back to the boat for the night. Did the same this year and as usual went to reception to enquire if it was ok to moor overnight. When it was established it was a private boat, I was told that this year there is a charge. No problem, but you have to go to the boat sales office and pay there. Went over to pay and then asked about parking to be told that they don't allow any visitor parking, only customer parking, and despite paying for a mooring we didn't qualify as a customer Frown  Only customers of their hire boats. They did say that we could park in the Lathams car park overnight but we would have to pay. After many enquiries in Lathams we eventually found out that you can pay at the customer services desk for overnight parking. I can't remember the parking charge now, but still consider it money well spent to moor in the yard overnight safely protected from all those wild rag and stick merchants racing around  Evil Grin

Does anyone know that hiring a boat from Herbert Woods entitles you to moor at other hire boatyards?

As Herbert Woods are not associated with Hoseasons or Blakes I wondered if you would be classed as a private boat and therefore excluded.

Kind Regards

Herbert Woods are members of the Broads Hireboat Federation, and it is this which means one can more at any other federation boatyard - not an affiliation with a booking agency.

hi there ,
yes you'll be allowed in any hireboatyard , but just remember that you are asked to stay away on the eve of takeover days , takeover days , ie , friday nights, saturdays, some even ask not on thursdays to ,there should be a list of hireboat yards in your skippers manual on your hireboat ,
some hireboat yard moorings also have an added plus , ie ,if you was to want to stop at the ferry inn over nite , you could moor at ferry marina right next door to the ferry inn , and not end up paying the over night mooring fee if you was to moor outside the ferry inn !

Regarding Ferry Marina (hire boat) moorings.

I've never seen the ones that face river free - as in not taken by their own fleet.

TO be honest, I feel a little worried about heading down the dyke because it is lined with private moorings - should I not find a space and then have to turn a hire boat around with so many peoples own boats close by.

It is the same reason I've never gone to Boulters since I would worry someone may think 'what is a hire boat doing going off down there'.

Turning left after the turning to ferry marina towards boulters you have what used to be woodsdyke boatyard now owned by ferry marina there is ample moorings there with access to the ferry inn and the village, new inn, swan etc its never been widely publicised but if it belongs to the marina the same may apply

"It is the same reason I've never gone to Boulters since I would worry someone may think 'what is a hire boat doing going off down there'. "

londonrascal, Woods Dyke, as far as I am aware, is part of the navigation. No-one is going to say anything to you for taking a hire boat down there. Until quite recently a hire yard (Freedom, I think) used to operate from beyond Boulter's, so hire boats were always up and down.

And don't let the rather confined nature of Boulter's yard put you off, either. There's always someone there to help you in, and they'll turn you on ropes, if necessary. You're missing one of the Broads good experiences   Smile
