    Where Did The Love Affair Begin?

    Both my father and brother were in the RN so caught my love of boats from them! We had a boat at Ely then Littleport when I was 10 -15 and had many trips up The Ouse to St Neots and St Ives. Reconnected to the water on The Broads 24 years ago with the children , then Simon was hooked! Hired yearly, eagerly anticipating the Hoseasons catalogue, until we finally got our own boat last May.

    Single Parent Hiring Boats

    There are risks in whatever you chose to do or where you go ! My comment was more from an insurers point of view and that any business involved has to adhere to it. Insurers usually only cover the hired property ( which would include a boat) what the people chose to do outside of that would not necessarily be covered. Very few people would have your depth of experience on the Broads or children that have been brought up in that environment. Not all parents are responsible, single or otherwise and I’ve witnessed many occasions when children are allowed to run, jump and climb on the boat without any evidence of a life jacket and like most insurers, they would look at averages and not exceptions.

    Single Parent Hiring Boats

    I would think that was blatantly obvious... as a hirecraft is a moving object on water, subject to winds and tides and I don’t believe either Centre Parks or a static seaside holiday are. It would also depend on the age and amount of children with the hirer, but all insurers have a cut off point.
  12. Will bring cakes and as long as I’ve not made them, they should’ve edible!! Can no longer fit in my wedding dress- but Simon might

    Happy Birthday Katie

    Thank you for the birthday wishes. Simon almost gained enough brownie points! He's now letting me watch Star Wars to gain a few extra
