came past the yacht station on saturday 29th sept at about 4.30pm heard 2 rangers calling to a hire boat to moor there for the night as they wont get across breydon water by the time it gets dark two and a half hours later! The tide was running out at the time but even allowing for this an hour should cover it. May be the broads authority are getting desperate for the £12 mooring fee.

I think it's very difficult to say as you only tend to hear part of the conversation.  If they had asked whether they could get to Reedham or Loddon they would have been pushing it but I agree The Berney Arms would have been doable.

Hats off to rangers imho.

It would be too risky to chance there being moorings available at berney without enough light left for cruising to reedham if none available etc.

It's rarely full at both Berney and Burgh Castle at this time of year, and bearing in mind that charge for mooring at YYS, I think I'd have preferred to carry on.

I'd be most interested to know whether the Rangers in question were giving "advice" or a "Direction" though, and exactly how this was made clear to the occupants of the vessel? Question

fair do's pete but you are experienced to know the limitations of yourself and your boat.
a newbie hirer with little or no knowledge of tides, cruising times and mooring availability would IMHO need and indeed welcome such advice.
mooring at dusk can be daunting if you've never done it before,whilst £12 is not cheap its a cheap price to pay for safety and peace of mind.

Mike, put the way you put it, I absolutely agree with you, and fully appreciate the potential hazards.

There is a "but" though, and it's this; Refering to the latter part of my post above, providing it was "advice" that was given, and it was made clear that it was "advice", then I'm completely happy and would acknowledge that the occupants of the vessel, if inexperienced, would be foolish not to heed the advice.  They may however be experienced too, and it concerns me greatly if this was given as a "direction".

I think personally, stopping at YYS is a good move.
When you stop  there, pop into the office and spend a few minutes looking at some of my pictures on display.

whilst on this subject,many people( especially locals) recommend newbie's to moor up away from town and go in by public transport,why?
apart from cost( public transport costs enough )
the main downside is the tidal rise and fall!
on the plus side;-assisted moorings(great if you're new to the game)
asda across the bridge two decent pubs (at least) close by,the swanon the quayside and the lacon arms just up the street opposite the entrance
plus all the facilities you could want in the town,
if you want the stadium for greyhound racing or stock cars there is a bus stop at the top of the street opposite
trouble/noise?
i may be lucky but in 38 years of hiring only thing was a dissappearing deckmop(suspected the crew of lads who appeared to come in to moor without one)
to all newbie hirers[.do'nt let the pessimists put you off, give it a go,the lads in the office are a great bunch always ready with help and advice
