    Decreasing Number Of Hire Boats On Southern Broads

    Hi MM I certainly wasn't trying to demean anyone , it was tongue in cheek, a little dig at a post I didn't agree with . Falling out , making enemies , is not my remit , especially on a forum like this . I've enough of that in real life Another way to look at it , if an entrepreneur chooses to build a venue of some entertainment on the broads , and peeps who enjoy such a thing, choose to go in their droves, it then frees up a few more idyllic moorings perhaps . Maybe I was being a bit precious , but it was the old bug bear of " if hirers choose this" that pulled my tail . Anyway , no harm done hopefully, apologies if I came over wrong . Peace and love to all broads people

    The Poppy Appeal

    I have no idea, as I mentioned , I only recently found this out . It may be that all MIA recieved no monies, my granny certainly didn't . I was very young when she died , but apparently she often questioned where the money raised from the poppy appeal went , because she was left to raise a family of 2 without a breadwinner. I shall try and find out more about it , unfortunately all the people who knew her well are becoming less and less!

    The Poppy Appeal

    I just found this out recently My Granny ( no longer with us) lost her husband in the war. She never ever bought or wore a poppy. The reason being , her husbands body was never found, and was deemed MIA, she therefore never recieved a penny of help , he ( and others ) were treated and regarded as potential deserters. How utterly sad is that.

    Haven't hired that particular boat, but have have hired from HW about 6 times and have been delighted with boats and service every time .

    Well Done Lewis

    5 is a great achievement without doubt, and hats off to him. He is not the most gracious person in my opinion , but that's his business. To say he would have won the title if he was driving a Ferrari is just far off the truth for me.

    What a legacy he has left. His family and friends can walk tall at these sad times.

    Glad everyone safe and sound. I wonder if the young cadet was sea sick?

    Decreasing Number Of Hire Boats On Southern Broads

    Hello Svenuk Ive hired from Pacific cruisers twice in the last 3 years and both times they have been top drawer. Especially in value for money, the two boats I had were competivly priced , very well turned out with everything you need on a boat. The staff just couldn't be any more helpful and friendly. Lovely people. Freedom boats I have never had the pleasure , but the yard and boats look great any time I have seen them, and I've never heard a complaint. let us know how you get on.

    Rascal's Learning to Drive

    Oh well, better luck next time . I always thought an examiner only intervened if he felt the driver was unsafe. For him to give you what sounds like advice and coaching during your test seems bizarre . Your not the first to fail,and you won't be the last . Should you be looking for advice , I would say you tend to over complicate things . If your instructor is putting you forward for your test he/ she must feel you are ready. Simply go out and carry out your instructions . I taught my daughter to drive , she passed first time . Stay confident, stay calm . I really doubt the examiner has it in for you , I would be surprised if he knew anything about you, it is a tiny percentage of folk who vist this site. all the best neil

    Closed Season Decision In The Spring 2019.

    I join this discussion late, and admittedly without reading all posts. But my take on it is , the clip above , while not nice viewing , is nature at work . And nature has evolved very wisely to create a good balance . It tends to be humans and their over large brains who mess it up. I ain't no tree hugger, I'm very happy to be part of the top of the food chain , thems the breaks I'm afraid. We should , I think , however , make a marked attempt not to interfere too much with the balance . It has for example seemed for a long time , their is too many geese on parts of the broads. Which dosent usually end well for over populated species . Disease usually intervenes, again nature balancing out the sum of the equation. Otters ( I think) belong on the river , and take out the weak of their prey. Back on topic , I think a close season on the fishing can only benefit both the nature side , and the fisherman . I am 50 year young , been on the broads many many many times , but only once during close season . Only once for a reason! I so enjoy , part of my holiday being rod in hand , chilling out , fishing away . But I can see the pointless part , when I'm not eating my catch . I'm skilled enough to release most of my catch , unharmed , but every now and then my actions do harm a fish and I have to question my actions . I console myself knowing I have fed many a million fish , in my desire for a bit of sport and relaxation . That probably all means only sense to me !!!!

    Telephone Scam ..... When Will They Give Up?

    They are a stain on modern life . Ive been told a set of ear plugs and a whistle next to the phone are handy. Insert plugs in ears , take a deep breath , give it a blast.
