Is it possible to turn a 38 footer at the end of navigation on the Yare at Norwich. Never been up this length; is it possible to moor overnight anywhere on this stretch – would like to do some fishing.
Head of navigation for hirecraft is Bishop's bridge, private boats can go further and there is at least one pub which always used to allow boaters to moor outside overnight. The water buses which go into the city centre are certainly more than 38ft.

Is it not The Wensum that goes into Norwich past the yacht station? I have taken my boat a 35ft all the way to New Mills. Past Bishops bridge there is no public moorings, although there maybe one or two places to tie up unoffically.
Quote "I did mean the Yare." If you are thinking of Trowse water meadows I'm no sure of the current situation, there were some downed trees which were not cleared away for a long time. Just before the Trowse road bridge there is a Y junction but it's very shallow and I'm not at all sure that you could turn a 38ft boat there. Again it's beyond the limit for Hirecraft.
