  1. Well Broadway P Should be free from the 23rd 7nights as Richardson,s have kindly moved me to next April /May. I will however come back this Month if the local Lockdown finishes soon and Norwich doesn't go into one. And hire what if anything is left to get some in this season !. Regards Peter,
  2. Knew I could rely on the forum thank you all. I'm normally a sensible grown up of 69. but when it comes to my week on the broads I get excited like a little kid and as disappointed as one too! haven't been able to contact the yard this weekend but will Monday The problem is these lockdowns are as long as a piece of string so how can you plan anything. Regards to all and Stay Safe . Peter
  3. I hate dilemmas so I thought I'd share it with you lot. Was booked with Rickos on a lovely boat in March the week had to be of course moved so now due on 23rd of this month but guess what because of some idiots in my nearest town ignoring distance rules in a number of pubs and we are in local lockdown, nobody knows how long but are unable to leave the area with the holiday date looming so do I A: hold tight and hope for the best B: Move the booking to next year now while our favorite boat is still available C:Ask for a refund Pretty fed up my family obey the rules and
  4. I had a boat last time out with an electric winch, it was only when I was winding out that I thought how do I know when it hits the bottom practice I guess . ;)
  5. It,s all clear now Crystal Horizon 1&2 have become Broadway 5&6at least one of them having a P before the number for Pet. Least that,s what I think?
  6. Early Seventies my first hire boat Angelina Bee , Bees Boats out of Brundall wooden cruiser ( not sure about the hull) but I know it had a Petrol Engine. Second time out White Dolphin 2 a big lump mostly wood from Hippersons Beccles have hired hundreds of times since some yards are even still going!
  7. No sensation is like the old Crystal Horizon (Now Ibiza I think) this one is new posh bath tub type very nice boat. with two Tele's and bow thrusters fore and aft.
  8. The above seem to have disappeared from the horizon at Richardsons (pardon the pun) I know nothing is currently available but these are shown as Unit unavailable or such. If they are sold or something I'll be disappointed they were ideal for my lot when using the north. although I would be busting the bank to hire them.

  10. I used the enquiry one on their Website they came back quite quickly.
  11. Hope it all works out for you guys. My problem now is getting hold of the Bank an hour delay at least costing £30 with the old phones you either got through or busy not costing a fortune with no result at the end of it.
  12. Thanks folk all sorted with Richardson's yesterday they were waiting for me to get in touch, a misunderstanding. A refund and I'll re- apply when the nightmare ends all being well thanks to all on here and Richardson's were more than helpful.
  13. Sorry I meant my planed holiday has already passed 30/03/2020 it's a lot of money to be doing nothing in these troubled times although I would re-book when this nightmare ends all being well.
