    Broads Toll 2019

    John, (MM) you need to be out in a rowing boat or kayak, on a quiet evening, when a 'gas guzzler' comes past. With little or no wind, or other passing boats to disperse it, their emissions lay on the water, contained by the reeds and the river bank, not at all pleasant for those of us caught up in it. Nothing to do with liking or not liking particular boats, bit of a myth is that, just a preference for fresh air.
  2. Alan, I don't think that I ever met you and Tan but I always admired your togetherness on this forum, not least your joint welcome to new members, I'm sure that we shall all miss that.

    Broads Toll 2019

    At the end of the day, at least on the Broads, it could be the rich people who have to pay. There can be little doubt that far more stringent emissions testing on boats is long over due on the Broads. The 'gas guzzling', emission spewing craft perhaps most likely to fail any reasonable test are possibly if not probably the over engined, at least for Broads use, mega boats that are the demand of rich owners. Despite having regulations in place to restrict emissions the Authority has so far, apart from telling people not to run their engines at moorings, failed to tackle the problem with any great enthusiasm. I have been on the canals where the lock chambers can quickly fill with diesel emissions which quickly result in sore throats and smarting eyes, it is not just a Broads issue and I can foresee demands from other waterways, not just in England, triggering greater regulation.

    Generator Onboard?

    Yes. Also sometimes kept as 'portable' and removed for the boat safety scheme inspection, naughty!

    I would expect that to be a fossil fuel powered set-up in case you get caught short. Word of warning, I have seen some appalling DIY installations especially where the exhaust is concerned, even on premium boats.

    Sail is the answer!
  7. I do know of some hugely wealthy boat salesmen locally, more than one is a millionaire or well on the way to becoming one!

    Until we see electric lorries then I doubt that electric boats will stand much of a chance. Lorries and many big boats have one thing in common, they are bigger than cars!

    Wise words, Cal. Shouldn't be up to the crew to make good the mistakes of the helmsman. Better to back off and come in again.
  11. Second hand boat prices do tend to be a tad, or even more, inflated on the Broads.
  12. Perhaps not really a Broads boat and not best suited to cruising the Broads, in my humble opinion. Perhaps it's time to decide what you want of a boat and where you intend to use it.

    You should be fine, might need a smear of lubrication on the toilet door posts in order for you to get in and a bottle jack to get you out though. Really lovely boats.
