Hi Folks, we have a couple of folding chairs that we use when camping etc and i cant decide whether to take them onboard with us for our 14 night holiday. We only have a small boat (Coral Horizon) and have no idea whether folding chairs would be useful for sitting on the bank at moorings???

your opinions please
Regards
Neil & Linda

Definately take them IMHO, sitting out on the bank have a drink or food is all part of the holiday.

If they're comfy and not too clunky, I'd bring them. Nothing nicer than sitting on the bank on a warm evening. And people are more inclined to make conversation when you're accessible, rather than stuck on board.

Def worth taking. We have 2 on board all the time and always take 2
when hiring.

If they are the chunkier type, and depending on the space on the
boat you are on, perhaps its worth considering buying  2 of  those
£7/8 lightweight chairs from the supermarket chains? Easy to handle,
and store in a corner without taking up much room. They always
come in handy.

But these might be what you've already got !

Just looked at Coral Horizon - the fold up pole leg types should essily strap to the roof rails. As long as you remember to take a bungee or similar  Wink

Personally I'd save on the clutter, both in the car and on the boat. Cockpits are ideal for sitting in, and they tend to be more level than the bank. Sixty years of Broads boating and I have yet to feel the slightest desire for camping chairs  Wink

But theres not much outside space on  the boat booked by the op.

So bankside on a camping  chair may be very useful and enjoyable.

Also good for a barbie as we all know its not a good idea to stick a barbie on the boat itself ....  Gasp

Just remember when sitting out on the bank in the evening - as romantic as it sounds - it is the time when the old mozzies come out to play.   Plenty of anti bug cream I think.

things out...
