  1. Morning flight was moved because it was constantly sinking, it sat on a mud berth which was dredged as an experiment due to the mercury levels in the mud. the maintenance on the boat was not worth while and she took up space from which the hire fleet could be run. as it happens the yard was not viable due to the lack of car park and the hassle of ferrying everything to and from the staithe. the diesel delivery in particular was a worry and we didn't think that the delivery hose over the river could be ignored much longer. Personally I loved being sent over there to work, the place had a lovely feel to it but it was a way of life more than a business.
  2. If i remember correctly we sold it to a Naval museum who raised it by wrapping her in polythene then decided it was a bad idea so passed it on to someone else, the BA told them they needed insurance before it could be taken onto the main river.
  3. Hi, I don't think he bought the launches with him, As for my Baby Betty, i don't think it will be quite finished but who knows!
  4. Hi Dan, If you want one i could put the price up a bit...
  5. I rook this a few weeks ago on Ranorth. we get out on her a fair bit.
  6. Hi Davydine, We don't replace as many as we remove
  7. Mainly available around October time, there are better pictures on the holiday website. https://www.richardsonsboatsales.net Enjoy!
  8. I couldn't get far back enough to get the whole boat in but this is on the River Lea with West Ham stadium in the background.
  9. Brooke marine sold boat kits so they were not all built at the yard. Phoenix Yard in Potter Heigham have recently taken a mould from a Brooke and put a keel on it, there is a Brooke launch for sale on Facebook market place
  10. we fit quite a few at Horning, ring Jason for a quote 01692 630614
  11. my Grandad had a schooner named 'Wildflower' he stripped the copper off the bottom and gave it to the sea scouts who wreaked it on Corton?beach.. I have a photo of it somewhere going through Mutford lock..
  12. years ago blakes operators seemed to assume that their boats were slightly better than Hoseasons, when the two combined there was some discomfort but I think we all soon realised that the common goal was much the same .. ( i may be wrong)
  13. well to be fair , where i am there are pictures which show the quay heading about 7-10 inches below where it was in the 1950s/60s i don't thin the land is sinking,,,;
  14. Rickos have a 2019 version, to be fair, the majority of bookings are via the Net but we have a shed load of other info in the brochure and other literature which when you consider the cost of the other publications we do it makes sense to combine them, hopefully our customers and the wider broads users find it useful
