  1. Hi Ian, I hope you and Marina enjoy yourselves. Regards Alan
  2. Dear All Notice is hereby given that dredging operations are programmed to commence on the River Thurne from 22 March 2019 until 29 March 2019, during the hours of 0800 hours and 1600 hours daily, excluding weekends. The works may restrict the access passage of vessels from Candle Dyke to Martham Ferry. The navigation will remain open but mariners must exercise great care whilst proceeding past the works. All equipment will be lit and signage will be in place to warn of restrictions and delays. Kind Regards Laura Milner Administrative Officer Operations Broads Authority Tel: 01603 756035
  3. I have just reduced the price of our school share that is currently for sale because the first allocation this year was this week. The cost of the share is now £4750.00 (reduced by £350.00). Regards Alan
  4. Speaking from a syndicate point of view this topic is a none starter. When we were allowed to change our toll from commercial to private (with listed owners/trustees) we had to supply the Broads Authority copies of our draft contracts for judgement of our application. From an insurance point of view we also have to declare all of our owners, their profession, and contact details. The same can be said for the Small Ships Registry. An owner has to be aboard the boat when ever the boat is moved from the Marina. I would assume, most if not all syndicate, shared ownership and most private boats on the Broads are governed by similar rulings. Regards Alan
  5. Dear all, We been informed by Network Rail that Reedham Swing Bridge is once again operational. Kind regards, Tom Waterfall Digital Communications Officer 01603 756034 Broads Authority, Yare House, 62-64 Thorpe Road. Norwich NR1 1RY 01603 610734
  6. I was once loaned a Mazda RX8 after an apprentice damaged the drivers door on my Xedos 8 after reversing off of the rolling road, whilst my car went through their body shop. Another main dealer that do not always get it right. Regards Alan
  7. Tan & I had a sit in a MX5 a few years ago and found them very small with the driver & passenger rubbing shoulders, the height issue was another of the things we noticed . Regards Alan

  10. Hi Robin, The Joys of motoring. I am afraid you will encounter more of this in the future. My rear box fell off the car after blowing on the 2nd March, we went up Station Road to the garage there and they ordered 3/4 of the system at 10.30 am and I collected it completed by 1.00 pm. Great service on a Saturday morning. Regards Alan
  11. Hi Neil, We left Brundall on Tuesday after staying in the marina from Saturday morning, we could not take the two couples that came to inspect Ranworth Breeze on the river because of the windy conditions. We had to venture out on Tuesday lunchtime in order to top up the fuel and get the toilet tanks pumped out, we met with our fellow owners but they just used the boat until Thursday morning as a base when they decided it was best to go home. My mate Chris and I had a great time on the boat from the 1st to 12th March even with the conditions. We managed to get all the season start jobs completed and the boat was fully ready for the season ahead. Regards Alan

  14. Dear all, Broads Control have received a number of calls today reporting vessels that have become waterlogged and some that have sunk. This is likely to due the recent high waters and high winds created by Storm Gareth over the last week. Following these reports, if you own a vessel within the Broads system we would urge you to check on it as soon as possible and take any appropriate action. If there is a problem and you require any advice please call Control on 01603 756056. Kind regards, Tom Waterfall Digital Communications Officer 01603 756034 Broads Authority, Yare House, 62-64 Thorpe Road. Norwich NR1 1RY 01603 610734
