  1. Please correct me if I'm wrong has this is going to be close for me also with an air draft of 8ft6" with all the weather we could have in between now and when I get to stalham with regards to ludham bridge height Datum of Yarmouth Bar is 4hrs in front of ludham bridge so ie if low water at yarmouth bar is 07:47 then that would be 11:47 according to ba tide table and location And in previous topics grendel has measured the bridge to 8ft with the concrete path showing Kind regards scott
  2. Same up near me that morrisons/asda/tesco bloody ridiculous the ques especially at asda blocking the roundabout now
  3. Thanks Vaughan just checked there website sat 25th Sept and 9th Oct 2nights only we don't arrive till the 18th Oct but thank you anyway

  5. Not to sure if anyone is interested but I read this article in the sun a lovely mooring and a nice walk through down the dyke itself https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/16154156/picturesque-waterway-banned-by-facebook/
  6. I always try and do research on a boat if I've been on it before
  7. Oh I know exactly what you mean by this I'd never jeopardise the boat in anyway shape or form I'll always err on the side of safety better being safe than sorry
  8. I know when we come for two weeks in Oct and air draft at 8ft6" if I can't use St olaves I'll head to Reedham down the cut onto Oulton broad that way just pay alittle attention to the bridge marker before the split just after breydon but in my eyes being a hirer if in a high air draft boat it's down to planning the tides and getting right for the lower bridges and if it looks low or close just use your eye if possible to the highest part of the boat if in any doubt about possible damage easier and safer to turn around and either wait or find a different route but that's just me
  9. Never thought about it like that before pre cook and freeze it for they boat then reheat it thanks for the idea
  10. I'll use the slow cooker while moving and hopefully moor where there is a electric post if I've planned my 2 weeks out right plan a and plan b 😉 I should be on a post in Oct I understand the battery's draining a far bit I will use it but only a few times but on a post I hope don't want to unnecessarily call the engineers out
  11. Hi good evening just a question has anyone used a slow cooker on board there boat slow cooker would be 200w just wondering to take ours in Oct for more hearty meals ? Many thanks scott
  12. We use this blue for the toilets on the coaches but I not keen on it has it stains the toilet if white personally I try and use zafora every now and then while flushing the system out then add more to keep in septic tank does keep the smell away
  13. When we hired broadsman from Rico in April for 7days we needed a pump out 2 adults 4 kids on there toilet system if I'm not mistaken there's a full flush fills toilet up then flushes or part flush no water flush then tops the basin up just a bit
  14. Same here we got 15% off our multiweek so 2 weeks in Oct 18th plus our 2nd holiday with rico's this year and a further 20% off and on board commander so a bonus has it will keep my youngest safe with his disabilities oneway out passed me on the flybridge keep downstairs locked
  15. You would have thought maybe cut price 🤔 so atleast they make a few hundred quid instead of it not making sitting there
  16. That's what the lady said on the phone what ever I don't use I can use next year anyway but if someone needs one then I will have a spare or 2 for them
  17. Possibly take the oil radiator with us or both if them that way there's no noise or minor noise with heater running at night
  18. I especially thought I'd use more in Oct with the earlier nights and the not to disturb anyone with running the engine
  19. Got 2 more holidays booked this year 1 week Aug and 2 weeks Oct and whatever I don't use by the end of Oct I can pass the remaining cards to someone possibly
