    Nbn Ios App Released

    Typical. I typed the code and the picture appeared but everywhere else I can only see the code! And then I couldn’t find a way to edit my post. I think this is a thumbs down and I may well uninstall it. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Still getting the code not the emoticons such as It makes the threads very hard to read. Also can only like a post. Can’t seem to get the other options. And I don’t think that notifications are working. I am using the app but it needs a lot of work still. Would have to give it a low rating at the moment.

    Help Needed Quickly Please

    I'm glad to see that you got sorted out. And I can vouch for this lovely group of people providing very helpful advice and suggestions when one is out on a hireboat and might have a problem. The members have helped me a few times. :)
  4. As a hirer, the only time that it’s really about the destination is sadly having to plan our arrival back at the boatyard at the end of our holiday! Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  5. Going to have to disagree with you on this one Speedtriple. I like the look of most of the newer boats built at Richardson’s, Ferry Marina and NBD over the last few years. Each to their own.

    Afloat And Not.

    Safe travels Ian. We’ll be heading for home ourselves soon. Been to Lound Garden Centre this morning for a look around and a cup of coffee. That place was a great recommendation JM.

    Afloat And Not.

    For anyone in the area but not afloat, I have just found out that it is the Tour de Broads tomorrow. Sounds like this is a fun ride of various distances for up to 3000 cyclists mostly riding in groups. So watch out if you're on the roads. http://www.tourdebroads.com

    Looks good. Finding my way round it. Have noticed that the code behind the emoticons appears where they are used in posts instead of the picture.

    So, What Would You Do?

    There was no damage to our boat thankfully. We would definitely have reported it to the yard if there had been. It just felt like the other people were still out there and may not have had a clue what they were doing or may not have cared. I appreciate that it’s not like dialling 999 and getting a police car out looking for something in minutes but it felt as if we should have told someone, we just didn’t know who that someone should be out of hours.

    So, What Would You Do?

    We were hit by a hireboat after dark at St Benet’s last year. They had lights on in the boat and reversed into us seemingly without any idea we were there. Nearly knocked us off our feet. They gave up trying to get in whereas had they approached more slowly people would have taken their ropes and helped them as it was only a small boat. I did check our Skipper’s Manual to try to find where I could report them to because they were still out there somewhere in the dark. But there was nothing there. It might be helpful if this was included.

    Happy Aniversary Katie

    Sounds perfect. We’ve arrived in Lowestoft and it’s a beautiful morning. Have a great time.

    Afloat And Not.

    Thanks for the info JM. Stayed at Kessingland many years ago but haven't thought to explore that area more recently. Have been wondering what we might do tomorrow but not made our minds up yet. Want to go out for the day but we both prefer to avoid the crowds ... a sunny bank holiday will certainly make a lovely change. :)

    Happy Aniversary Katie

    Happy Anniversary to you both! Hope you're doing something nice to celebrate. :)

    Afloat And Not.

    We stayed at Corton once but never got around to Gunton Hall. Would be interested to know what it's like there. Given that we have the caravan just along the road from there now it's not somewhere that we are likely to stay.
