Anyone know the best(cheapest) place to get diesel around Wroxham area? I was told that Moores used to do it but not sure if they still do. I know Barnes do it but you can never get anywhere near with all those hire craft taking up half the river and i would prefer to pay a fair price not holiday hire prices The other question was is red still allowed/sold or only if you plan on sailing a tractor?
hi there , don't know about wroxham area , but can recommend Boulters of Horning , many of us use Boulters and there prices for services Diesel are great , http://www.boultermarine.co.uk/index.asp?a=Home also red derv is still allowed till Nov 2008 cheers

Hi Steve and Vicky Cheers for that. Our next trip out was going to be that way so bonus. Is the place easy to get to and find from the river? I went down to Horning last week but only managed to moor at the pub on the corner just before the island moorings for some reason! Chris
Chris...you'll need to go another mile up the river until just past The Ferry Inn. Take the second dyke on the left and Boulters is on the right about two thirds of the way down the dyke. Quite tight in and around the yard but there's usually room to moor and pull the boat round to the pumps if you're struggling. Sonny and Keith are always happy to help anyway.

Hi John Sounds like fun!! I will try and moor up and walk down if i can first and then take the boat down, We are both new to boating and have only just done the RYA inland course and have only had 2 solo trips so tight spaces are a bit worrying at the mo but i'm sure we will be fine. Chris
