George Thetford's yard was at 10/11 Bungalow Lane.  The Yare Valley Sailing Club was formed there in 1948.  George was still there in 1961 but I don't know when he gave it up or sold it.  Today the land is private but little changed from its boatyard days.  
On the attached map the yard is shown edged red. The BA dockyard abuts the right hand edge of the map.
I hope this helps your researches.

That 'boat' was actually a WW2 landing craft (LCA I think). It was converted and occupied by a pioneering surgeon from Norwich hospital until purchased by the present occupant.

It is still a permanent home; the current occupier has been there over 20 years.
The cabin on the west side (number 10) is a holiday chalet that was hired out for many years.

There is another 'shack' that another family lived in full time with several children until the 90's I believe.
