    All Ready For The Spring Meet.

    Spent the weekend picking up our new (to us) boat. We can now moor stern on, no outboard to get in the way. The Alpha is twice the size of our old Viking and much easier to manoeuvre. Probably more importantly the boss likes it so she shouldn't moan at me for getting in the way[emoji57] Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    She is propably the easiest boat I have ever helmed. But that could be me being older and doing things at a slower pace. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    The paperwork shows that she has always been a private boat. We got all of the change of ownership documents with her right from the original invoice. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    What exactly is wrong with the old one? If it's just cosmetic you could have it grit blasted and then powder coated it would look better than new. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

  12. That sounds like a very familiar tale. We bought our first boat, a 3 year old viking 24 in August 2017 and had a really good first year as boat owners on the Broads. The weather helped a lot but we were hooked. It didn't take us too long to realise that we wanted this that and the other from a boat, most of which weren't on a viking 24! We started looking about 4 months ago and looked at anything that had a very similar set of requirements to yours. We picked an Alpha 35, 2 berth with lots of living space. We are picking her up next weekend, hope we got it right this time [emoji6] Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Closed Season Decision In The Spring 2019.

    Wild goose is beautiful to eat I have had lots, I'm my opinion they are also the most challenging & best shooting going. Pinkfeet are the best followed closely by graylags. Cook like braising steak with lots of onions. Canada geese stuff with a orange and a brick, roast for 2 hours chuck the goose and eat the brick. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Closed Season Decision In The Spring 2019.

    We have 3 lakes at our club 2 are open all year 1 has a closed season. I can't say we have noticed a difference in fish or wildlife on them. What I miss is the exitement of June the 16th coming around, the anticipation after 3 months was better than waiting for Christmas. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

  24. I have hired lots of narrow boats in the past. I may have been lucky but I have never had a problem with any of them. But I think the best of them have been from Black Prince. The marina at Chirk on the Llangollen Canal have been brilliant and it is a really nice stretch of canal and from the aqueduct to Llangollen is a real experience.

  25. It's just plain ugly. I would not want it even if the inside is like a Palace. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
