  1. Just discussing our forthcoming trip to the Broads with the in-laws and it turns out they know some folk who ran a boat out of Gt. Yarmouth, names were apparently John Knight and Joan Hanford and the name the golden galleon has been mentioned. Do any of you lovely lot know anything about any of this?
  2. That's great, I will let you know what more I find out tonight!
  3. I have found a little more, in that it was rented out from the yard at Wayford Bridge, as opposed to Wroxham, as my friend thought it was, so I guess thy may have sailed up to Wroxham? Should be finding out more tonight as I think he's bringing the pictures out.
  4. Hi all, Was sampling the offerings in the local tap house and had a conversation with a friend tonight who was going through some old family photos and happened across some pictures of his parents on the Broads in Wroxham on a hire boat (rag and stick) called ‘Belvedere’ circa mid ‘30’s. He is going to let me scan in the pictures but I was wondering if anyone here had any knowledge of such a boat, or which yard she hired from? many thanks in advance, JamesV
  5. Doesn't look very encouraging, what a shame, sounded like a great idea. Also see: https://www.eveningnews24.co.uk/news/the-vagabond-italian-restaurant-in-norwich-closed-1-5843527
  6. Happy Christmas NBN’ers from the calendar elf and his clan

    Boats For Couples

    Brinks Omega is a great boat for a couple, can be a bit tall at times, but plenty of room, had it the last two years, upgraded to Serenade next year!
  8. He’ll photocopy the one he’s bought, keep the copy for ‘imself!
  9. Glad it’s been well received, I have to say a personal thank you to everyone who submitted photos, and the forum team behind the scenes who organised it all. cheers, J
  10. So the calendars have been printed, now just waiting to be trimmed and bound, not long now folks...
  11. He's already got the car, it's not what perhaps most people would buy as a first car, but then when is Robin ever 'most people' ?
  12. Cal, I still need your photo please! Vaughan & Pete Belham, you both have emails from me.
  13. Brinks Omega, which from memory is 8'6"
  14. There will be a blank outside back page on the calendar, so any details could be added there, however if the idea is deemed worthy by the powers, I’ll happily add more details.
  15. I use the same for the mudweight, saves me trying to use the excuse of “it was dirty and I was trying to clean it...”
