I may be missing the obvious here ladies and gentlemen, but if I go into Salhouse Broad for example, drop my mudweight and get my head down (Don't ask, but by the I'll need it!!) whilst my wife and kids go off on a bike ride, how do I pay my mooring fees?? Does somebody come out on a rowing boat to collect them?
Thanks
Ian

Are their bikes amphibious? You can mudweight free of charge in the broad, but leave enough room for the big trip boats that come in and turn there.

Yes, you pay only for shore mooring. There was a scam a couple of years ago, collecting mooring fees from mudweighted boats, but that was sorted.

Best wishes,

I am sure someone will have the answer, but, why does the BA not take over or buy out the moorings at Salhouse Broad and make it a free 24 hour mooring for all Toll payers? Smile

Salhouse used to be leased by the BA and was a free 24hr mooring, but, as I understand it, when the lease came up for renewal, the price went up above what the BA was prepared to pay.

Thank you for that Paladine. I am sure I did not pay in
the 70's but the old grey cells may have been playing
tricks on me!

Many thanks

I was looking at Richardsons introduction video (The
hour long one) and he spoke about mud weighting and I'm
positive he said that on at least one of the three
broads (Salhouse, Malthouse, and South Walsham) where
you can 'weigh anchor' they charge you for it !
Hope he's wrong !

He's definitely wrong on those three! The only broad I know of where a mudweighting charge is applied is Wroxham, and I'm not sure that's collected. I'm probably wrong on that, 'cos I've never stopped there!

Regards, Ray.

If it's neither here nor there,
then where is it?

All of them, as far as I'm aware. (With the exception of South Walsham Inner broad, which you can pas over, but not moor or mudweight).
