    Belvedere (wroxham) - 1930’s

    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.

    Belvedere (wroxham) - 1930’s

    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
  4. 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

    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!

    Rascal's Learning to Drive

    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' ?
  11. Cal, I still need your photo please! Vaughan & Pete Belham, you both have emails from me.

    Danger.. I've Had An Idea.. Danger

    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.

    Unplug Then Cast Off!

    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...”

    Brinks Serenade

    Well, it’s booked, now the long wait until we get up there, today will be the start of the planning which will no doubt change several times. Still, we have a few days in the Isle of Wight and a week at my dads place in Italy, and take the boat out on the lake there between now and the Broads, so not all bad!
