  1. Thanks SwanR. I’ll definitely take a look. Thanks everyone for all the lovely comments🤗 Hopefully we will get some up to date pics on our next trip! Not long now! I’m already getting my gear ready!
  2. Hi Everyone! New member first post! We are not new to the Norfolk Broads boating scene though! We've had a few fantastic holidays over the years starting with me (Simon) as a youngster with my parents from 1989 (Miss Dream River I think it was) and with my own family (Wife Jen and three boys) since 2009. Our last trip was on Ultimate Gem in 2016 (I've attached some pics). However, we are about to return to the tranquillity of the Broads again on the 22nd July 2019. As you will probably notice, we love the 'bath tub' type boats....not just for the value for money, but also because of the forward seating well and the air draft for bridge navigations! I am really looking forward to returning to the broads and checking out all our favourite spots including Wroxham, Acle, Brundall etc. An extra bonus for us this time is that we are planning to travel further up the North side than we have ever done before (we usually turn round at Wroxham) and travel on to Coltishall. Speaking of which, I was wondering what the mooring situation will be like at Coltishall at the end of July? I don't mind (even quite enjoy) a wild mooring and was wondering if it is still possible to navigate beyond the Green down to the Locks? Jen and I have been enjoying watching the adventures of Robin and Sheila (Rascal's Captain's Blog) on youtube and noticed that they had been up past the green towards the lock a few years back on Bronze Gem and more recently on Western Light. Anyway, its nice to be part of a forum of friendly and helpful folk who all share the same enthusiasm and enjoyment of these fantastic boating experiences All the best for now Simon and Jen
