  1. Ferry and the Waveny River Centre are by far the dearest for 10 or 11 day holidays unless you can get a large last minute discount.
  2. Hello Susan I am on Silent right now and twice the thrusters have failed on me.I called into the yard when passing today and of course they worked perfectly.Apart from that it's a great boat.
  3. If companies are having to discount to get boats out,dosn't this imply a problem with their pricing in the first place?
  4. Ferry are offering 30% off selected boats on holidays taken before July 25.Why would anyone book a boat with them outside of the school holidays.You could save a large amount by waiting .
  5. Who decides whats sensible?Other full members ?
  6. If this is the "friendly forum",why arnt all members ,full members ?

    Surely the destination that ticks most boxes as a place to visit when on the Broads is Beccles, as stated by others Brundall has far too few public moorings, one could say the same about Horning and Wroxham is just as difficult unless you can get under the bridge.
  8. I hired Whisper Emblem last year which is very similar to Silent Emblem and there was a thread on it in late October.
  9. So the more you shower etc, the more pumpouts you need
  10. All the waste go,s into the grey tank.
  11. You can take as many showers as you like Matt ,as long as your prepared to pumpout every couple of days.My gripe is that this is not really pointed out in the boats description .However it is pointed out in the handbook for the boat when you get aboard.
  12. Makes you think twice about showering every day :)
  13. The shower do,s not pump out into the river,nothing go,s into the river.Its all kept onboard to be pumpedout,hence the need for regular pumpouts.We had 4 in 11 nights.
  14. I,ve been on a number of boats with thrusters,mostly Herbert Woods boats and i have to say i found the thrusters on Whisper Emblem to be far better.They made reversing into Sutton Staithe pumpout station very easy.As for the generator,we found it far quieter than running a diesel engine.In 11 nights we visited most places,both North and South and we were running on silent over 50% of the time. The one unexpected drawback with this boat,at least to me,was the number of times a pumpout was required.I could see this being an even bigger drawback in the summer months when i like to shower every day.
  15. That was us you to waved to Jean,we had the boat for 11 nights after Moosey.
