Hi,

You will have around 2 1/2 Hrs daylight left so plenty of scope for your first overnight stay.  Salhouse maybe a first overnight location that will suit, and won't be full either.

Hello Chelleandpaul,
I believe all boatyards give a boat pick up time of maybe 2:00 or 4:00.  I normally arrive and visit reception between 12:00 and 2:00 as you are sometimes lucky and take over boat a fair bit earlier. a good chance if the boat was not hired out the week before. I have sometimes been away as early as 11:00 but it's pot luck. I know it helps that I have been on the Broads many times and do not need to be taken for a trial run but I think it's still worth arriving early in hope.  Wroxham has plenty of shops and restaurants should you be kept waiting.  My wife and I hired Fair Regent a few years back and it was a very nice boat.  Our only issue with it was that the domestic batteries seemed to be Inadequate but this is probrably due to the fact the boat was capable of using shore mains power.  



Kind Regards
Alan...

Hiya Chelleandpaul,

      If you have doubts about finding a mooring for the night, then have a word with your hire yard, and they'll let you stay the night there. There's no reason for you to fly around looking for moorings if it's a bit late in the day. Have a great holiday, and welcome to the Forum.

Hello Chelleandpaul,

I agree with Griff that Salhouse is a good place to moor, there is an overnight charge both in the Broad and on the river there.

It is a tidy walk but you can go the pub in Salhouse, part of your boat kit should be a couple of torches.

Regards
Alan

Hi Chelleandpaul. Firstly welcome to the forum, if I were hiring from Wroxham for the first time I would suggest you make for The New Inn at Horning for your first night,you can book a mooring for the night and its only about an hour away. I don't have the number to hand but knowing the forum as I do my money would be on somebody posting it on here for you within the next few hours. There is a great guy there named Gus who yells out guidance and will help you safely tie up for the night. Wherever you decide to go ENJOY

Peter

There isn't really anything to feel "trepidation" about - a few hours aboard and you'll forget you're even on water! Well, until you are woken gently from your slumbers by the gentle splash of river against boat, quacking ducks and the distant chug of someone's engine heating their water - waking up on the Broads for me is one of the best things about it!

Forget about the 4pm thing too, particularly at this stage of the season. Get there early, get booked in, then have a wander round Wroxham until the yard have it ready. Don't think we've ever cast away later than 1pm; our record at Faircraft was 11am, within about 25 minutes of driving onto the car park!
