Aside from clothes and the usual things one takes, these are the things I cannot go on a boat without:

A non-stick frying pan (Asda do a cheap but good 12" one)

Can of WD40 - eh you think? Oh but from the stiff pump handle on the loo to the squeaky cabin door and many other ideas - it has is uses on a boat.

Tea lights - It makes cosy evenings on board that little bit more special - simply float them in a class of water Smile

Torch! Great for finding the way back after a night at the local pub.

Pauline, re the working tin opener, how right you are!
When I had the shop at Burgh St Peters I used to sell scores and scores to frustrated holiday makers every Sunday!

Jenny Morgan,

Like the idea of a "what to bring list", Richard, and I am sure it will be of help to those new to the Broads ( and old hands too).
Its a pity, those little " Cruising Handbooks" that Hoseasons, etc., used to send out with the booking invoices, ceased a few years ago, packed full of useful information,and hints (the current leaflet is sadly lacking in content!). I thought they were a brilliant idea, in that they could be studied at leisure before the holiday, and I wonder how many crews pick up the on board boat manual,too many other distractions,I would think. I suppose it was just a cost cutting exercise!

Might be too late but to add my two bobs worth.

Oven gloves, wooden/plastic stirring spoons/tongs (to turn the bacon for the butties) as some hire boat fleets don't have any presumably for hygiene reasons. Electronic gas igniter nothing worse than trying to strike damp matches if cooker isn't self igniting

Strongly recommend a can opener- running short of stores and decided to have a tinned meal at the Dutch Tea Garden moorings on Oulton Dyke, come to open tins aaaarh!!! the supplied tin opener didn't work. Cuppa soups and breakfast cereal not very filling/satisfying on a cold, wet blowy night.

Got a boating bag including the bits n pieces mentioned above now which we stow away in the loft between hires.

Enjoy your trip

Stewart n Donna

Hi Sue love the avatar... Which is Tess and which is Tegan??? It's a pity Boris wont be able to meet up with them.
If you love the boating thing and you will, I am sure we will get together eventually..Best of luck on the tube this year too.

Oh and a dog towel as you will need it. Ball for the dog, supply of chews, and endless patience. Boris loves it now but it took him two days to go down the stairs in the boat even with scooby already down them.
We put it down to him being a pup.
Another usefull item is plastic pan scourers for when the breakfast food sticks to the pan provided. Maybe the woofers could help there ..LOL

And please, don't forget the Eggs, Bacon, Beans, Tomatoes, and Bread,,,,,,,just for that first morning you wake up in the boat, on the Broads, there is absolutely nothing like it, especially with that first cuppa.
