    New Boat From Herbert Woods

    Hi Monica, The Broom's fuel station will no doubt start their winter opening hours soon. My guess is that Saturday should be OK with a finish time of 4.00 pm or earlier Sunday will be debatable if open or not. We advise all of our owners to pump out and fuel up on Monday after lunch or first thing Tuesday morning. Regards Alan

    New Boat From Herbert Woods

    Not in my home David. We had one for my youngest son because of the hours he work, this he never used and in end he gave it away. Each to their own I guess but I regard microwaves with contempt preferring food cooked and having a natural taste. Regards Alan

    New Boat From Herbert Woods

    To be honest the inclusion of a microwave does not in my mind mean a top end boat, when ever we have hired narrow boats we get the boat yards to remove them, our crew prefer the additional space they take up. If there is an oven and hob who needs the use of a microwave? There are far too many gimmicks these days on boats Regards Alan

    A Week On Gainsborough Girl

    Hello Mouldy, If you have s much fun as we have had since buying our share in our boat back in 2001 you will do well. Syndicates are not for everyone but if it works for you then it will be a job well done. By the the way we do allow pets and one of our owners used to bring his parrot with him. Regards Alan

    Mooring Up.

    Same here, I then put the shorter fenders out of the racks to replace the longer ones used. We have got up in morning to see some of the higher place fenders sitting on top of the mooring especially when moored at Reedham Ferry. Regards Alan

    We might have a look at what Roy's have to offer when we are next on the boat at the beginning of December, which is about right for any Christmas shopping. Regards Alan
