Bring warm clothes. It's always cold on the river in the late evening even in summer.
Bring waterproofs. It can rain.
Bring the ordnance survey OL40 map and your hiking boots. There are great walks all over the Broads area.
Bring a camera.
Bring binoculars as the wildlife is great.On a clear night moor in a dark place and look up at the stars. You will be amazed.
Bring a torch to find your way back to the boat in the dark.
Bring a Forum sticker.
Don't bring loud music - sound travels a long way over water.
Don't bring a captain's hat or a pirate flag. These items are not as original as you might suppose.
Don't bring thoughts of work. relax and enjoy the Broads.

Have a great holiday.

Well there you go P16.

Looks like the Pirate Flag, Cutlass and Eye Patch are crossed off my list then. Anyone seen my bell bottom jeans?

A good lump hammer for knocking in the rhond anchors, a tin opener/corkscrew that works, and a non stick frying pan essential for those big breakfasts afloat!   Evil Grin

Hire boats are well equiped, but nearly always with a cheap frying pan that sticks like mad and a tin opener that was worn out when the boat was new!  Playful

if your boat is one of the type with a high drop down to the bankside at high water, and you have any crew on board that are not so nimble, then a cheap plastic step is useful, and can easily be bought from most hardwear shops or caravanning centres, good for reaching into the backs of kitchen cupboards when you get home afterwards too!  Smile
