Some will let private boats moor for a fee. I believe Barns and Herbert Woods for instance do this.

Richardsons let privateers moor at Stalham, although common sense should be applied and busy times avoided.

Cheers

Drl marine services at womack water let you moor during the week (4£)but have to move by 9am Friday good moorings and only 50p more than parish staithe and a better view down river,this is a fairly  new service you couldn't moor there before even if you was a hire boat they are not in the federation

I always enjoy dropping in at Martham Boats but apart from that I can't think of a less appealing mooring spot than a hire boatyard! Handy for service or advice, but also risky spots to moor for those of us who cherish our paintwork or gel coat.

Avoid Horizon Craft at Acle if you have your own boat

rather contradictory you do or you don't,it doesn't answer the original question,i get the impression it may be in an emergency as in late in the day,not every boat hirer can afford to buy a boat and i am sure the majority dont want to damage other boats

I don't suppose for one minute that any hirer would want to bounce off and damage another boat, least of all someone's pride and joy. But the harsh reality is that accidents do happen and hire boats tend to be big beasts. Hire boat yards do tend to attract a greater concentration of hire-craft.
