Firstly having been lurking here for a few weeks now, I thought best to introduce myself.

I am Charlie and the wife/wench is Inge, we have had many a great holiday on the broads, well except our honeymoon in 1974 on the bough queen it sank on us in the last week of October.

Having taken the grand kids and out 2 daughters on the shining horizon in mid July this year. We decided to look for a project boat to own. By sheer coincidence on arriving home to Clacton on sea i did a google search so on the Monday we was on our way to Richardsons at Stalham where we bought a 20ft fantasy. In need a some work, we now have the bss and its nearly ready to go out in once the toll arrives. I also have to finish checking out the engine.

On doing research we found out it was called Sunquest reg no H267.

Well Pauline its quick a long story in fact. At the time I was a DTI licensed charter boat skipper. So we decided to descend to the broads on our honeymoon no boat booked 27th Oct 1974. on arriving at St Olaves we managed to get the bourgh queen a 6 bert big but ok. On the first night we moored up at the pub just beyond the waveney/newcut junction. We wok to wet feet. Trying to get it back to the yard we had the misfortune for the steering cable (wire in them days) to snap and lasso the the gear linkage and throttle. on killing the engine and restarting I got it to the bank by the mariner that was at the time New Generation hire fleet now a private mariner. The boys there helped us get the boat on their slipway and gave us hot showers. end og honeymoon after less than 24 hours.

Oh dear that was proof indeed of my theory. Things never go wrong on boats in ones, usually three things will go at the same event. Smile

Best wishes,

Pauline

But it never put us off.............. many holidays on the broads later and we've jumped into the money pit of boat owning again but this time small and inland waterways..............
