    A few weeks ago a friend of mine with a few others went to Geldeston for Camping and Kayak Canoeing from Friday till Sunday. When they went on the River Waveney near Geldeston Lock in their Canoe there is a Speed Limited of 3 MPH yet some Idiot did not obey the Speed Limit as the Canoeist Nearly had their Canoes filling up with water they just don't care of what they are doing. As my Friends of mine are going up there again over the Bank Holiday Weekend coming up very soon can there be a River Inspector patrols that stretches or some other devices to catch theses Culprits for theses Canoeists can have a leisurely time on the River Waveney. When I go on the Norfolk Broads I obey the Rules with Sailing Boats and Canoeist also Moored up Cruisers. What do Forum Members opinions on the Subject? Yours Andrew Cook
  2. As to New Cruisers have got Tinted Windows I believe would it make any difference of the Older model Cruisers with its Hired or Private or Syndicate' have them flitted as it does gives it some privacy while on board plus it may cut down any intruders at the same time? What are the Forums opinions on this issue? Andrew Cook
  3. Hi all there ls one interesting note I would like to add at this time their are some newish Boats that have got Hook ups with Hook up points along the Broads as they are their to help cut down on the drain of the Batteries while moored up over night . I'm very grateful for this NBN Forum comments on this Hybrid Boat subject. Andrew Cook
  4. Hi to you all Forum Members here's this question? As we are now moving into Hybrid Cars that 's Part Engine and Batteries can they do the same with Diesel Cruisers as they can still use the Engine's when going over Breydon water's but can use the Batteries on Calmer waters such as on the River Ant or River Bure or any other place's. Mind you could any one convert Griff's Motor Bike Tiger to run on Part Batteries and Engine when he visits the Norfolk Broads to help the environment Andrew Cook
  5. Hi all can it be possible to Cook Irish Lamb / Beef / Chicken Vegable Stew in the Oven while going along for Three Hours? Yours Andrew Cook

    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

    Hi to the NBN Forum members Here' this questions. As to Dredging Hickling in the past would that Lower the River Thurne? and make possible for Boats to go under the Potter Heigham Bridge? Andrew
  8. Hi all I should have added this on my post. I've Hired this Boat from Richardson Called San Marino as it has got One Double and Two Singles Berths if they look up at the lay of this Boat that I've now Hired for September 14th 2019 all I need is One or Two People to come aboard and only contribute for Food / drink's Act
  9. Hi folks I'm fishing for Crew! Despite some Health problems my love and Desire for Boating isn't diminished I'm thinking for Hiring a Boat in September and I'm looking for a Crew Member to help me out. I'm not as fast at leaping on and off the Boat ropes and some time's need a bit of help getting on and off. I hope to go out for a Week from the 14th September and will be meeting up with Andy (London Lad) at some point while He's on Evening Shadow If anyone would like to join me for a Cheap Holiday then please get in touch Yours Andrew.
  10. Hi as to answer Griffs question why? When it comes to women putting their Foot down they always Wins as she I have to obey as I've know her for over Forty Years . As to Polly I would like to say thank you as it's great been able to hear as I was Born Deaf with Ordinary Hearing Aids now with Cochlear it's beautiful to hear the Birds and Boat Engine and other things on the Broads that I've not heard since that time. A word in Griffs ear he won't need to shout at me any more but I can still Lip read so I be watching with his P & Q. lol. Andrew Cook
  11. Hi all as to seeing that beautiful Cottage in the picture that you can Hire I went to one in Catfield last year October 2018 called Violet Cottage as its Thatched Roof as well . As I do like Boating on the River but had to settle for being on Dry Land due to me having two Operations with in the Space of Three months One for my whole Left Knee replacement Two having this New Hearing Aid called Cochlear as I did want to see Griff at Sutton Staithe as he wont have to shout at me any more lol with perfect Hearing now while they where there on the Lads week but my Lady friend had put her foot down upon me going to seeing him as I really do apologise to Griff for not turning up that evening in October 2018. A part from that I've booked up again this year. 2019 Andrew Cook

    Hi all as to our Mobiles Technology are changing all the time as to having SAT NAV on our Mobiles to help keeping Speed down on Hired or Private Cruisers that have to obey around the Broads including other wonderful gadgets on our Mobiles we now have But has the Signal reception around the Broads such as theses Server like O 2 or E E or others made any improve there Signal receptions over the Years or not? Yours Andrew Cook
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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
