I was thinking about getting one of those huge kites to pull BlueJay along on but I don't suppose everyone would stay away from the cable and steering under bridges might be tricky. Failing that, I shall have to keep using my engine. My outboard is pretty economical and I can stay out 3+ days without worrying, but sooner or later I shall have to buy some on the water. Please can members give an update on what's available on the waterside, or within a short walk from a mooring. Thanks. PaulW

Idler,

Don't worry about the reply from Coriolis, the sort of boat he has got we know on here is a farty (farty/saily its all about wind). There are plenty of ICE boat (internal combustion engine) users about who will give you some decent advice.

There is some rivalry between the Farties and the ICE boats but its all in good taste, until we see Coriolis on the water that is.  Evil Grin

Regards

Paul

Only a few yards do petrol because of the storage regulations. Brooms I think still do and Burgh Castle. The little petrol station in Loddon near to the village quay has closed. At Beccles Safways/Morrisons has a filling station which is a short walk from the Yacht Station. If you moor in Norwich close to the new bridge there is one on the new riverside development. If that helps

I know you knew what you were doing, dear, but you still hit the other boat! Bill...

There is a General store/Garage a short walk from Potter Bridge (go to the Bridge and turn right!) and the same at Womack (up to Ludham Village.)

A bad day on the water is better than a good day in the office.

The one near Potter bridge is Repps Service Station, just head South down the main road, 5 - 10 mins walk.

There's also Asda petrol station in GY; from the yacht station walk over the Bure road bridge and head round the back of the railway station.

Well, thanks for all the responses. Together with a  list from another site, I should be able to come up with something useful once I've done some verification. PaulW

Verification?  You mean you don't trust us not to send you trotting off into the wilds of Norfolk, petrol can in hand, on a wild goose chase?
