  1. We also missed it, I thought it would be the engine that might let us down. The engine was perfect in the end and just needed a long cruise. We had decided not to attend and stay north and give her a good run and it's a good job we did. Judith managed to open up two seams on both the port and starboard sides just below the waterline meaning the pump was going off every 15 minutes. We returned to Martham on Friday and she was pulled out within 10 minutes of arriving and work began straight away. She was launched 30mins later. We've monitored the situation and things have improved. Martham are going back tomorrow to access if she needs to come out for more work. I suspect she will but it won't take them long to sort. We'll be around next year, gutted to have missed this year's. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

  3. Well after what seems to be a long time....... Well it was really she's in the water and ready to use. Still some tidying to do on the inside but that's a whole new project in itself. Martham Boats have done a great job and spent a lot of time on her to get her back in the water. Just need to sort the injector pump and we will see some of you at Beccles!

  4. Lots of larger craft have been coming through today taking advantage of the lower water. It's good to see people doing this while they can. When I say larger craft I mean bath tubs such as the gems from Richardson's, a rare site this side of the bridge these days. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  5. I'm sure we can come to Beccles next year. What are the dates? You are right she was Judith Windmill. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  6. Last time I saw Judith 1 was around 1992 by the boat sheds and not in the best of states. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  7. Our Judith taking up in October after being in the shed for a few years. She'll be back in the water in March ready for the season to start. She use to be Judith 2 at Martham, if anyone has hired her and has photos it would be nice to see them. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  8. Just down from Martham Ferry Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  9. We have a seamaster 27 at the moment, good solid boat and a good perkins engine in it. We regularly go through Potter. Unfortunately we are going to have to sell her due to the purchase of Judith. We were in the process of updating her but now will just get her sale ready for someone else to make her their own.

  10. We've been through twice this week taking full advantage of the low water. We are the Martham side so it's been good to get out and about. We saw you moored this morning as we came through on the way to Acle. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  11. It's a lovely part of the broads we are lucky to be on this side of the bridge, I see so many people come up from potter and instantly turn left towards Hickling and Horsey without exploring down to West Somerton through Martham Broad. It's well worth a visit even for the crystal clear water and the sheer amount of wildlife you can see. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  12. The planking on Judith is almost complete, they have done a great job. Soon it will be time to crack open the paint! Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  13. She is definitely more than just a boat, many happy family memories on board and more to come. I can't wait. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  14. Thanks, I'll post updates along the way to her launch. Look forward to meeting some members on the water soon. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  15. I'm new to NBN but not the broads, I've been going on the broads since I was only a few years old. My parents bought Judith 2 from Martham Boats back in about 1992. We had her in the family for a good few years till they regrettably had to sell her. After 20 odd years and coming back to the broads we have been lucky enough to find her again and purchase her back from the family we sold her too. She has been in a shed for a good few years and now the restoration is underway. Martham Boats are sorting her hull and next year the upgrade of the inside will start! The NBN seems the ideal place to ask questions and share experiences along the way. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
