  8. I agree crossing Breydon is not difficult provided you take due note of the tides and take care but it is difficult timewise to cross out and back in a short break given the main hire yards are all well upriver Ray
  9. I think a !ot of hirers take short breaks these days with the main yards based in Stalham,Wroxham and. Horning combined with tides over Breydon it makes North to South trips very difficult Ray
  10. I agree 're smaller yards being more accommodating but they are slowly closing No Summercraft next season one of the best gone Ray
  11. Freedom at Thorpe did some Limited hire over the winter months but not sure they still do I am sure Andy will confirm. To my knowledge there are no other southern river yards hiring over the winter months Ray
