    Here's this question for you Forum Members has many Sailing Boats managed to get under Potter Heigham Bridge going to Hickling Broads and other places on that side due to it being Dredged out over the Years. As to Cruising Boats don't normally get under that Bridge due to High water at times as it stops them from getting back under into the main river Thurne. Yours Andrew Cook

  9. Hi all including Ranworth Breeze for your time and trouble explaining things re Time Shares and the difference from the other thing that did give a bad publicity. I would like to thank all this participate in this topic. Andrew Cook
  10. Hi all to NBN members can they tell me is Time Sharing a Boat is Cheaper then Hiring a Boat say Twice a Year. As to what size Craft will that enable people to sharing a Craft and other factors with Sharing is concern as to Broads Ambition being kept in prestige condition may I add. Andrew Cook.
  11. As the England Cricket Team did well with India but with sad regret Alistair Cook has now retired from England Squad to concentrate with Essex Cricket Club and Family with a Farm to run. I enjoyed watching it when he was playing at Home matches at Chelmsford. I wonder if the England selectors can find a replacement No one Bats Man or No Two for that matter. I think Alistair Cook should get a Knight Hood for his Thirteen Years services to playing for England. Yours Andrew Cook
  12. Hi all I just would like to add this bit of comments being made about Health and Safety. I was on a Boat Moored up inside this Boat Yard waiting for a Crew member to join me as this Hired Boat Hit my Hired Craft Twice and Failed to Stop to which is a River Bye Law my I add to do so I got the Name of the Boat and reported to the Hired Boat Yard concerned as this Boat caused to Injured my Back and ruined my Weeks Holiday as I had to get it sorted out from my GP to sort out my Back problem . The Solicitor I got says this is a very Long Windy road to Bring theses People involved including the Boat Yard to court may I add so this had to be dropped with very good advice from my Solicitor I got. Yours Andrew
  13. I try to Keep New Year resolutions but it does not work for me why I keep on attending Hospital Appointment's as well going in this year for this Left Knee replacement at long last plus having a Cochlear Implant to be done for my hearing to be improve some time this year as then No one won't have to shout at me any more I hope? Yours Andrew Cook
  14. Hi all this year 2018 is going to be a difficult year for people either Private Boats or Hiring Yard two reason. First one the River Toll Licences is going up very steeply plus Insurance act. Two Community charges is going up very sharply in April all this must put a squeeze on our Financial resources for this Year and beyond could theses Boats suffer from lack of being Maintained each Year when it is due? Yours Andrew Cook
  15. Hi all I did not mention this have some Disabilities such as being Totally Deaf but can sleep very well on the Boat lol Two I did have Two Strokes that leaves me with a small Weakness in my Right Arm and Leg. I still can take part with the Crew what ever I can do the only thing is getting on and Off the Boat that I do need a J C B. lol. I do have a Stoma due to Cancer that can be very annoying if it Breaks either in the Day or Night I'm always been very concern on Hygiene where ever I go. I don't want any privileges but just understanding when being out on the Boat or on Dry Land. Andrew Cook
