  • Gathering Gazebo Appeal

    If you were at Salhouse this year, you will remember that we were lucky with the weather, which was a relief for those of us sorting tentage.

    Now we are trying to make sure future meets stay snug and dry even if it rains, and although we have a good tent, we admit it's a bit too small for our numbers.

    So we decided to launch an appeal for 'Gathering Gazebos'. We'd like to raise enough fund two pop-up gazebos, with sides, at about £100 each. Anyone who would like to contribute is asked to kindly donate through our Gathering Gazebos button.

    If we manage to raise more than this amount, funds will go to purchasing a £96 Tug O' War rope, which Griff plans to use to good effect at future gatherings...you have been warned

    Broad Ambition - Underway on the H2O

    By the time we eventually got into Brundall gardens it was 1500. River Somg had made her allocated mooring hours ago as had Trixie of course. It was 1600 before we made our allocated NYA berth having had a pumpout at freshwater harbour. Brooms stopped selling fuel at 1530 so the plans and day had got in front of us. Decision made, Indy day would now be Tuesday. Had a forumite visit ‘B.A’ for a look round. Enjoyed his company. MrsG and Macie dog stayed onboard as did S&S. Myself and Robin ventured into Norwich for the evening via the local train. Saw Doug’s office. By 2330 it was lights out Griff

    When Did The First Grp Boats Arrive?.

    I seem to remember my brother mentioned a Seamaster 26/27’ (an old style) he owned for a while was built in the late 1950’s. There were a few around this time all GRP run out of Barns in Wroxham, Named queen something. I think there are some pictures of them on the Broadland memories site? I will try and find out from him when the one he owned was built. Cheers Paul
  8. I think one of the biggest problems with the roundabout that are on the NDR has 3 lanes but all the joining roads only have 2, this means you end up in the middle lane and people on the NDR assume you are turning right so pull out in front of you when you want to go straight on. I have had this happen on many occasions. The postwick roundabout still confuses the hell out of me as the sinage is rubbish causing you to be in the wrong lane.

    Return To Boating 2019

    Welcome. My Mum is less mobile than she used to be and still enjoys cruising - a small step is a must these days when she is afloat and as others have said, the broads community will always help others out... or lead them astray to the nearest hostalry ;) Enjoy your trip Encore looks lovely.

    St.benet's Annual Service 5th August 2018

    You people are weird taking photos whilst on a slide. My tip on cleaning a slide for what it's worth is, do not apply any Pledge or Mr Sheen (other polish brands are available) along it's length. Whilst it does give hilarious results for lads to whizz along on, for the unsuspecting users that follow the 10 feet of continued sliding along the gravel after leaving said polished slide followed by the sudden stop and smashing of head on the decorative concrete floor doesn't lead to a happy camper. Now if you also happen to be standing in close proximity laughing uncontrollably at the unfortunate individual, it would appear this does nothing to ease the individuals distress, some might say they become somewhat aggressive

    Tv Aerial

    Hi Snitch I tried the Ballard one from Brian Wards they kindly said that if it didn't work I could return it. After connecting it up and wandering around the deck with it like an Olympic torch I couldn't get a signal in Brundall. I now have a small house type aerial without a booster and it works great although I sometimes have to turn it to find a signal depending where I am moored Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

  19. In Oulton Broad there is a hairdressers called Code for some strange reason. One of my daughters goes there & she's well pleased. Head from the Yacht Station towards the Wherry Hotel and carry on along the road, three hundred yards or so and Code will be on your left. Alternatively a DIY job!

    Passing Through Gt Yarmouth

    Some very well made points there Vaughn. One thing i`m happy to do is to cross Breydon, heading North, on a freshly ebbing tide, which gets you across in about 35 - 40 minutes, then throttle up going up the Bure against the tide. After about 3 miles, you start to overcome the strongest tidal influence, and start reaching slower waters, which are a lot slower than the southern rivers so you can then throttle back a bit. The only down side to this is you MUST be in a low airdraft boat, which by the way, leads me to another valid point. With a low airdraft boat, you can arrive at Yarmouth from the north on a flooding tide, and go under the bridges and turning up the Yare, taking advantage of the last of the flood, which you will have with you all the way up the Wavaney or Yare.

    I just found out the same company has a similar site at Dilham a few miles down the road called Canal Camping and is right on the Dilham to North Walsham canal if you fancy a change https://www.canalcamping.co.uk/

    Sorry we can no longer attend.
  23. Try Bell boats Ltd at Brundall. My eldest son had a DC 30 from the Gt Ouse lifted in there and I had an Elysian lifted out by a truck with an Hiab for transport to the Gt Ouse. The fee was quite reasonable. 01603 713109.

    must have been the camera angle, as it looks like it wouldnt fit around mine either.

    That's a reasonable shout David but not on a Friday or Saturday. I made the mistake of asking to stop there for water last year (with plenty of space to do so) and they rudely shooed me away. I'll try there as a last resort in future.
