  1. Thought that as it is now December it was worth bumping up my previous thread. Some of you may have seen this trio last one evening week at the end of Look East .
  2. On delving into this further, I see that on 4th September, the strike-off action was suspended. Having said that on 7th September the boat building arm in Brundall went into liquidation.
  3. Alden ,Patterson and Dashwood , a Norwich based group have a lovely song on YouTube with the above title. We saw them live in Pakefield a month or so ago and the song is well worth a listen. I gather Noel Dashwood is a volunteer with The Nancy Oldfield Trust in his spare time
  4. It is on the Museum Of The Broads Facebook page confirming the time and the date as Saturday 12th Oct.
  5. Many thanks for the warm welcome, we are up from deepest Hertfordshire for a week in the caravan tomorrow so although we will not be water based , The Wherry at Oulton Broad may well be utilised from time to time ! As for the Seagull outboard, I may well have a couple of spark plugs and prop springs hiding in the garage still !!
  6. I joined a few weeks ago but thought it about time to say hello. We currently own a static holiday caravan in Kessingland and mainly hire day boats from CC Marine in Beccles to take ourselves up and down the river with or without the grandchildren ! I first started coming to Beccles in the late 1960's with my With dinghy and Seagull outboard and spent many a happy hour on the river ---Gosh all the boatyards up-river from the bridge in those days. I/We have hired many boats over the years , here are a few i remember--- Forest Brown-Waveney Yacht Station Stalham Vanguard-Richardsons Typhoon-Alphacraft Starfire-Alphacraft Star Glory (Twice!) -Powles--Best boat ever!! Little Gem-Richardsons Sheerline-George Smith. No doubt a few more will spring to mind as soon as I have finished this post!
  7. If you google LITTLEBOY OF WROXHAM, there is quite a bit of information of William Littleboy selling his tour boats and launches to Charles Hannaford into what eventually became Broads Tours.
  8. Alf Morris Rivercraft Ltd is listed as 5 The Yacht Station Oulton Broad, I remember it there many years ago as Stock & Morris.
