Hi all ,our boat has now been delivered to Brundall and is having some maintenance carried out , We hope to take her to moor at Horning, the radar arch on this is just under 12 ft ,  would this be comfortable passing under the bridges en route , this is our first boat ,hopefully some members experienced in that route can advise ?
Thanks


Kind Regards,
Lorna &Allan

There won't be many tides that will let you pass through Yarmouth haven't got my tide book with me but you will need a big minus tide, if you call the yacht station at Yarmouth they are very helpful and can offer good advise

I am sure its a lovely boat but 12' a bit restrictive on the Broads!!! Is the radar arch removeable - thats pretty useless on the Broads unless it contains other essential navigation aids.

Don't forget the Y.S.is closed in the winter and personally I would not go anywhere near Yarmouth without VERY careful monitoring! My guess is that there are very few occasions when you CAN get under (if at all) rather than the reverse - perhaps I am totally wrong and others will berate me on that point, but your cruising range from Horning will also be severely limited as well.

If you look on the Broads Authority web site under Bridge heights and openings you should find all the info you need. Remember though water is very high at the moment so will be less clearance.Good luck with your new boat.

At 12' if it doesn't fold down I'd look at a southern broads mooring, it's where the best boats are anyway....

As Dave says 12 foot through Yarmouth is extremely tight
If arch does not fold I see trouble ahead
No criticism but did you do your homework before purchase
Good luck or stay. South

10 foot 5 at slack last Saturday afternoon and about the same yesterday morning (Friday) at slack, think you will also struggle at Ludham with 12 foot.

No need to struggle at Ludham if you have a chain saw to lob off the top 4' or so!!!

I doubt you will get under the bridges in G.Y. at12'. The only time to try is the end of this month or next March depending on the rainfall. But you must go at low water not slack.
If the water is low enough will you have enough depth under you without going aground?
As said before, you should have done your homework before launching at Brundall.
