    Saline Barrier

    Looking forward to it in particular, and the longer days in general.

    Saline Barrier

    Another email received today (just in case anyone is trying to get in or out!) Saline Barrier at Potter Heigham This email is to notify you that the saline barrier at the entrance to Herbert Woods boatyard will remain closed until Friday 11 January. The high tides of recent days are taking longer to drain out to sea than usual, so salt concentrations remain high within the river system. Kind Regards, Norfolk Land & Water team.

    The Woolwich Ferry

    Ah yes I have fond memories crossing from Eltham to Essex for work in the 70’s. I used like waiting in the queue reading the paper and having a coffee from a flask (no Costa or Starbucks then?

    There is an owners club and they often carry adverts for Hampton Safaris for sale. Try hamptonsafaribc.org/for-sale.html

    What Do We Want At Acle Bridge?

    I would like the moorings to be quality 24 hrs with water and electric, a seasonal shop for essentials (possibly run by the Bridge Inn owners) as they are “on site” . Maybe toilets and showers and a visitor centre.

    Overstaying On 24 Hour Moorings

    As I understand it, if the boat we are talking about is an old Broom by the water point, a notice has been issued. Somebody was onboard last night, but that is not to say there is not a valid excuse for overstaying. I don’t know all (any) of the circumstances.

    Boats Far From Home

    Not strictly a "Broads" boat as built in Poland! We bought her new in 2005 and over about ten years explored most of the Broads. Sold her to buy a Hampton Safari and she ended up in Southampton. I'm told the 10hp engine was changed for a 90hp and she planed for the first time!

    Winter Cruising

    Well this year we have installed tube heaters on frost stats. We will see how the cost of the electricity compares to the cost of winterising and de-winterising. The bonus for us is the occasional day out, like today. Priceless??

  15. So glad we decided not to winterise this year. Had a lovely day out today, cold yes, but bright sunshine from Potter to Horning and back.
