Think twice Dave, by all the replies you have had here it does not look like a black cabbie will be welcome in Nooorfolk.
There is a property for sale on the marshes at Somerleyton that has been for sale a long time, you may be allowed to buy that?
If not you are always welcome in Essex, lots of friendly Londoners and black cab drivers.

Good luck.

Malcolm

Aw, shame you lot!  I'm sure no one minds in the least that you're a London black cabbie!  Probably just too busy out on their boats.  (Or in my case helping the son rectify his home after the departure of the tenants from hell.)

As an alternative to buying, I'm going to suggest the route we took, as advised by someone else on the forum (Mafman100).

We live in Lancashire, bit of a jaunt to Norfolk and we're getting older so the driving is a bit of a pfaff.  We investigated shared boat ownership and purchased a share in Moonlight Shadow.  Since purchasing, and up to the end of March 2011, we have three scheduled weeks, plus Christmas week which no one else could use, plus the offer of w/c 4th September (but we were on the hire boat) plus w/c 18th December (but I am still working so can't have any more leave).  So that's six weeks during the period of eight months from August to March.  If only I was retired.

For information on Moonlight Shadow and other shared boats, see www.bcbm.co.uk.

As maffman100 said to me, it's not for everyone, but a thought.

Regards,

Lisa

Hi Dave, it was good chatting with you - alls well here (except just paid for having No Worries' bottom painted). Kaths parents made the move from Walthamstow may years ago and now shes a real country gal - she can almost understand Norfolk as well as Suffolk now.

Hi Dave and Su, if you contact Andrew Barton (from BCBM) by email you will find him very personable and accessible but in no way hard sell, so feel free.  

We're very pleased to have moved from a 2 berth hireboat which was very nice (£800 per week) to a six/seven berth boatshare for much less per week (you do the maths, the sums are on the website!)  

SternMoor (Keith,my husband) will be attending the AGM for Moonlight Shadow in mid October (I'm attending a wedding reception, we have to divide our efforts that weekend!).  At the AGM the owners will get together, discuss any major purchases, upgrades, etc and draw for shares for Summer 2011 to Spring 2012, one week in each season.  Then there will be swopping and changing between people who need the summer hols/half terms and those like us without small children who would prefer otherwise.  As a boat needs to be used, anyone who can't use their agreed week notifies and it's available to the others.  Up to four people can be listed on the share certificate but the boat MUST have at least one of the shareholders aboard (when afloat) each week, it's not for hire.  

If you want to ask any further questions, please feel free to pm me or write here.  I confirm I have no connection whatsoever with bcbm and will receive nothing whatsoever if you choose to join.  It just works for us.
