How many of you who own boats go out on the rivers and broads when there is snow and ice around.  My husband often says it would be a fun thing to rent a boat at this time because the scenery would be very pituresque.  However, I have reservations about the degree of discomfort involved with sleeping on a boat in such weather conditions, have any of you done this and how good/bad was it??

Hi sue

  We vist out of season quite often and your husband is right about it being pituresque. It can get a bit chilly in the evening but you can always find a nice pub with a real fire.

regards john

Hi John

Yes the pub and log fire sound great but what about when you wake up in the morning on the boat, is there ice inside the boat windows??

hi decktotty
we stayed the weekend at womack water back in november last year and that night there was a very heavy frost.very cold outside ,womack frozen over ,and over boats with frost on .we had our gas fire on through out the night and slept in the saloon area with the deuvea over us .in the morning was a beautiful sight ,with the frost ,the water frozen over ,and the ducks walking on the ice .i got woken up by a boat coming in ,the noise of it cutting through the ice,was louder than there engine .so i would spend a weekend up there in the winter again .
here's a picy for you taken that weekend.
cheers   Smile

Hi Sue
  Yes i must admit to an icy interior on occasions but i just put on the kettle and heating then go back to bed for a while. I must agree with steves comments also.

regards john

Caution is indeed the key. But there really is nothing to beat breaking ice with a hireboat.

The notion that it's not yours is reassuring as the hull rips through the surface (and yes it's pretty noisy against a GRP hull)

It's been a couple of years since I did that, but I'd recommend to anyone visiting the broads at this time of year. The scenery is stunning, and very much yours to explore.. It's even possible to get a mooring at Malthouse Staithe ;-)

Thanks for the pickies Steve it does look inviting despite the cold!! Maybe we should pack he thermals and go for it some time!  We did rent a boat Easter two years ago, it was pretty cold at night then, beautiful sunny days tho, but not quite cold enough for ice on the water!!

Sue              Cheers
