Welcome to NBF , and glad to hear that you are making a come back!
You will probably notice that a lot of things have changed, like River Inspectors are now Wardens , and short break hires have become popular, alongside the standard weekly one's!
But the rivers and Broads are still here , and just as captivating , so enjoy!

Hi and welcome,David. Kathy also has mobility problems. We use a cheap plastic single caravan step for getting about on board and a pricier alloy tube two stepper for bank access. Beware of the feet sinking into soft banks. If all else fails sit on the sidedeck and swivel - sometimes means a wet bum but its all part of the fun! Tie a bit of rope to the step to aid getting it back on board and don't leave it behind (been there, done that)

Thank you all for the warm welcome

And thanks for the advice on the access for mam.
She's quite mobile for her age but by her own admission is not as young as she was last time.

We have got one of the folding steps to bring but the two step one sounds like a good idea. Just depends on space in the car

Mind you she says she would be quite content to stay on the boat and watch the world go by  Smile

Can't fault her for that
