we've all got our favorite places to moor up, maybe because of the solitude, or proximity to a good boozer.

I really like the staithe at Neatishead, very quiet and close to the White Horse.

Where do you like ?

Sutton Staithe if you can get in and I think the meals  are reasonable.

Since the pub at sutton has changed hands, its become a bit noisy there to moor on a night, but nice through the day. The moorings opposite coxes boat yard are good if you want a quiet night, as the picture shows or Richardsons for a good night in Stalham.

We like Thurne dyke we always get there in the afternoon, and spend the night.

Last year on Pico light (35 foot) I had fun turning around at the end by the Lion PH with a nasty side wind but a local fisherman gave me a push.

I like to sit with a cuppa and a bacon sarny next morning and laugh at people trying to back all the way down the dyke with no steering. I wonder how long it takes hireboaters to realsie its not a car!

While i'm on this subject, I was moored up outside the Bridg (Acle) Some loudmouth pulled up next to me, turned the wheel hard over and thought he was going to swing the boat in backwards (sigh) When he shouted to his wife to "JUMP" she shouted back that she didn't have enough wire to tie it up (holding a rope!)

LOL! things you see eh?

My favourite is to drop the mudweight in the middle of a broad and spend the night swinging round it. South Walsham is my favourite for this. I also like Black Horse Broad.
I never moor anywhere near a pub. I like peace and quiet when out on the Broads. I can go to a pub any time but a night out in the middle of a broad is very special.
On a summer night, look up into the dark sky and see a million stars and the band of the milky way.

Our favourite spot is at the end of upton Dyke, it's a nice short walk to the pub and is great for people watching as they get to the end and attempt to turn the boat around - why do the hire yards not stress the fact that it is pointless spinning the wheel in reverse?

Another favourite spot is the end of the river at Dilham, nice and quite and a great pub!!

Had fun reading these posts & I wouldn't disagree with any of the mooring spots. I've always preferred to limit mudweighting to daytime mooring though because I don't fancy waking up having been blown to the other side of the broad. Love the pic of Womack taken in November - I've saved that one. I always have difficulty thinknig of my own favourites because I have so many places I love to be. If I had to choose a night spot it would be Geldeston Lock. Or Cockshoot Dyke. Or Berney Arms. Or Acle Bridge....
