    Return To Boating 2019

    Hi David suggest you take a length of clothesline/rope to tie to the steps you won't lose them then, it also makes it easy to retrieve it from the boat when you return and the boat has gone up or down, we have a step and if we hadn't tied it on we would have lost it many a time, they don't float or wind blows them.John
  2. Hi just remembered the name of boat storage it's Gallian boat storage, puddingmoor lane, Beccles this would be your best bet for hassle free and bookable quay heading to launch your boat. There are also the two boat yards at St Olaves they will have a cost/charge but hassle free good access,hope this helps. John
  3. Hi Hadisco bridge new cut,somerlation quay and yard also, Rockland St Mary stath, old ferry quay heading opposite Bramerton, side of new bridge Beccles, the boat yard in Pudding more lane Beccles forget name they do boat storage and stacking, all have hard standing if boats moored and blocking ???? you could always ask them to move,and fisherman.John

    Passing Through Gt Yarmouth

    I do tend if going up stream through Yarmouth like to go against the tide this gives more control when passing the yacht station if you have to keep to close to right if oncoming boats are in the middle this is slower but more control and you can hold stationary if someone is mooring up, then moor at the windmill and wait for tide to change grab a ice cream feed the donkeys and get a paper ect.John

    Passing Through Gt Yarmouth

    No issues rearly except height clearance i go through when convenient not necessarily low water its a bit of a drag going against the current across Braydon, when going down the Bure with the Tide you have Right of way with on coming boats you do have to watch out for hirers trying to moor but they usually do this at low water and they will be on your Port side. try to keep to left hand sideish as you approach the bend yust before the Yacht station there is a sharpish turn as you come up to the boatyard on your right.John

    Older Webasto heaters are prone to be susceptible to lower voltages, my last boat had a webasto heater over thirty years old if the voltage was down a tad, it did on cold days need just that little bit more,I replaced it with a new one, the difference was remarkable but if at £2000=00 was it worth it!!!!. You can get a lot of start ups for that amount.John

    The mounting is for roof fixing if you mounted it sideways it could slip out as it just slides into the roof mounting. I haven't tried it on its side all though we do remove it to the deck when negating low bridges, not sure if it still works as iam steering,it certainly works ok when sailing along, in tennis season.
