    New Boat From Herbert Woods

    Hi Monica, The Broom's fuel station will no doubt start their winter opening hours soon. My guess is that Saturday should be OK with a finish time of 4.00 pm or earlier Sunday will be debatable if open or not. We advise all of our owners to pump out and fuel up on Monday after lunch or first thing Tuesday morning. Regards Alan

    Assorted Lego is worth a fortune. My grandchildren love it, you can never have too much.

    Had a look and yes it has shore power , thought it would have. As for the holding tank being in the sides of the boat - well you could hear the water going down into the tank under the galley so I doubt that. Be good for anyone in the second cabin, especially anyone with water works problems. I should imagine there would be a queue for this one loo. Out of interest Brooms are open Saturdays and Sundays for pump outs and water until end October.

    New Boat From Herbert Woods

    The boats I've seen under construction seem to have tanks fitted under the decks. From the photo of the new HW boat (and presumably the Broom) there doesn't seem to be much in the way of a side deck so I wonder if space limitations might dictate a smaller holding tank?

    Yes well as my old Mum used to say - All top show and no knickers. If you will excuse the expression. You all keep saying no 240 volt. Well the Captains have 240 volt, in fact they have only 3 pin sockets around the place and USB ports. Cannot imagine this boat not having 240 volts.

    Cleaning Up The Lego

    Lucky little sod! Lego will do him far more good than anything with a screen, I'd have loved technical lego when I was a brat but had to make do with the regular stuff.
  13. There was a plastic dustbin full of it in the loft, and now our grandson has graduated from Duplo, it was time to get it down and cleaned up for a new generation. The sinks are full, the bowls and buckets likewise so now the technic chassis is having a bath!
  14. I think Sandersons charge far too much for what they're offering. Pacific and Freedom are much better value. I really like both. Freedom have the advantage of any day to any day hire, especially handy for short breaks or if you want to go for between 1 and 2 weeks.

    New Boat From Herbert Woods

    So Herbert Woods have been shopping at Brooms then. I agree, David, 240 volt and a microwave isn't a big ask. I'll be interested to see the interior photos of this one when it's complete. On the toilet thing, I think a single toilet on a 4-6 berth is a mistake. Expectations have moved on from what they once were and personally whilst I'm happy to "utilise on shore facilities" when I have the opportunity, I don't expect to have to do so or avoid using the toilet on the boat. With a single toilet and even with a crew of 4 let alone 6, you might need a pump out every other day.

    Not in my home David. We had one for my youngest son because of the hours he work, this he never used and in end he gave it away. Each to their own I guess but I regard microwaves with contempt preferring food cooked and having a natural taste. Regards Alan

    Cracking looking boat and well capable of a few decent salty trips I would guess, the east coast has some lovely places to go, a couple of recommended reads are 'east coast pilot' and 'crossing the thames estuary' both written and updated by east coast sailors and full of invaluble info, just remember they are writing for a 5' keel with sail so a mobo can stretch the advised times quite well.

    Decreasing Number Of Hire Boats On Southern Broads

    I rarely hire, last time was ten or twelve years ago, but I do see most if not all the various hireboats over the course of a summer season. Silver Line and Pacific Cruisers always appear to be well maintained and presented, even during the high season.

    Broads Bug....

    Good ideas there, this time of the year is going into low season and quiet after half term, then take your pick, anywhere north or south of Great Yarmouth. Above Potter Heigham Bridge and hiring from Martham would be my choice, as already suggested; the boats are traditional wooden; they don’t cost the earth, but don’t expect mod cons. A nice yard with a friendly welcome. I also like Summercraft Wroxham, lovely boats, and more modern. You have a good cruising area from there too. Colitishall, Horning, Ranworth would fill my weekend withSalhouse, Cockshoot and St Benets on the way. Or head up the lovely River Ant. I’d not try to achieve big distances just savour what you do visit. Be warned, however, the Broads Bug is real and there is no known cure.
