  1. When we sold our last boat that was based at Beccles we could not wait to get back to Norfolk when we replaced the boat with a motorhome. First stop was the campsite in Potter Heigham and then a few days at the cl at Hippersons, Beccles. Both sites very friendly and the ride up to Beccles on our electric bikes memorable! Whilst it was enjoyable it did not live up to the boat so we sold it soon after! Have fun with yours. Happy (aka Alan)
  2. They did the same for us when we hired Absolute Freedom in September. They really put themselves out. Great yard.
  3. Thanks for that. Just been on the site and spent nearly £40. Not a lot I know but it all helps and goes to the right cause. Happy (aka Alan0
  4. Hi. What do you mean by hull needs emptying inside? Is it full of water? What sort of engine does she have and is it OK? Regards Happy
  5. Having said that, BBC 1 told everyone the result this morning at 8.00am which is bloody typical of them. They do't show the races but want to ruin it for all those that do!
  6. Looks like we did the right thing booking 'Absolute Freedom' last week. The weather was mostly warm and sunny.
  7. That reminds me of the actress and bishop?

    Found It!

    I spent today going through all my now redundant boat gear looking for my NBN flag. Quite suprised how much stuff I had and forgotten about! After much searching, there it was, just sticking out of a lin bin. It has now been fitted to a pulpit mast which will be displayed on Absolute Freedom (with the owners permission) of course, from Monday 23 to Friday 27. Give us a wave if you see us or better still have a chat. Happy (aka Alan)
  9. Sorry - its Monday not Tuesday - must be getting too excited! Happy
  10. Having owned many boats, mostly on the Broads over many years we came to the same outcome a few years ago. Eve had got to the stage where she was finding if difficult to get off when mooring so we decided to give up the boat. I bought a motorhome which we used a few times (in Norfolk and Suffolk) we tried to convince ourselves that it was just as good at boating, but it was'nt! We now use cruise ships and let others do the work, but I still miss the 'Broads'. So much so that me and four other blokes are having 4 nights on Absolute Freedom starting next Tuesday. You just cannot get it out of your system!
  11. We used to call them up on approach having made a previous booking and they would always be there waiting. Great service. There would always be a few 'tinnies' offered, and welcomed, does that still apply?

    I was in a very similar position quite a few years ago and wrote to them in a similar manner. No reply was ever received. These guys risk their lives to save others whilst the management sit behind their desks in total safety and reap the rewards. Only IMOHO of course.

    My Day

    On the 23rd of this month five of us will be on Absolute Freedom and may well enjoy a pint or two. Happy (aka Alan)

    Good luck! Regards Happy (aka Alan)
  15. Hi Seagypsy We are on a 'Boys Jolly' for 4 nights on Absolute Freedom out of Thorpe. Looked at Richardsons but did'nt fancy the croud that would be leaving to go down the Ant. Two of the guys have not been on the broads before so I reckon they will be addicted too. Have a great time.
