  16. Here we go again Private v Hire I have hired boats for 50 years and been on the broads most of those years I do not want to own a boat because through family and work commitments I would only use it 2/3 weeks a year and for personnel reasons I do not like the idea of syndicate boats I have a RYA skippers certificate In all of those years I have seen very few instances of bad behaviour or bad helmanship and more on the canals than the broads The way you lot carry on people reading this thread would think the broads are no better than dodgem cars at a fairground In general most people have a nice quiet holiday on the broads one incident happens and everyone jumps on the bandwagon and starts shouting and becoming abusive thats me finished with this forum Ray

    Acle Bridge Vanity Project

    I do work in the Building Industry, My company are Design and Build Contractors with in house design teams Those designs shortlisted in my opinion are very poor, I made a statement that primary school children could design better and they have in competitions we have run through schools in the past BA should be commended for purchasing the site for the public to use but I hope they put a building on there that blends in with the environment and not overpowers it as those designs do Ray

    Acle Bridge Vanity Project

    In my view children at my local primary school could do better I do not consider that any of them suit the location or the environment Also as Vaughan states, I think all three are outside planning guidelines Ray
