  3. Maybe because of the height of the boat it will not go under the railway bridge to get into Mudford Lock, the Railway bridge has not been working for a few weeks now. Regards Alan

  6. I have moored at the furthest moorings from the yacht station, there are mooring rings rather than posts and there are three electric posts there. I found it fairly quiet being as I am an early riser. We did not have any trouble at all being as it is well away from the other boats. Regards Alan

  9. We have used a brokers called Morgan Marine Insurance for about the last 9 years, always had excellent service. Regards Alan
  10. On Friday we waited from before 11.00 am to a little past 7.00 pm for the bridge to open, several of us (six at one stage) waited all day for it to open, two needed 9 foot clearance, they managed to get under about 6.15 pm another boat who needed 10.00 foot and my self at 9 foot 8 inches waited until 7.00 pm, I could have scraped under just as the bridge opened. This bridge needs money spent on it or just fit the summer rails, which I believe are still on the track to be used. Regards Alan
  11. Congratulation to you both. Regards Alan

  13. Hello Ruthie, We called into the Swan House which is just up from the Church at Beccles, I had not seen it before. We had a couple of beers and watched as several platters went out to customers sitting outside. The food looked good. It might be an idea to give them a call. I am sorry I do not have their number. Regards Alan
  14. Hello Andy, you had better get a dayboat hired ASAP, I have heard that many yards have pre bookings now well into the season. Regards Alan
  15. Good morning The Broads Authority Maintenance Team are carrying out replacement of fixings at Scare Gap emergency mooring for a period of approximately two weeks starting on Wednesday 5 August. The team will work on half the mooring at a time so there will continue to be room for one large or two smaller vessels to moor there for short periods as normal. Kind regards.

  16. Hello Sally welcome to the forum. Regards Alan
  17. Our airdraft is 9 foot eight inches with everything down, we always plan our passage through Yarmouth aiming for 10 foot, clearance. Use the Broads Authority tide tables (the only one to give the height of the low water) to calculate the height of the bridges at low water. In our case we can get under the bridge if the height at low water is less than 0.15 of a metre. A number of people will phone the Yacht Station. I tip when coming down river into Yarmouth if you can see 7 rungs of the ladders out of the water at the start of the Yarmouth station moorings there is at least 10 foot clearance under the bridges. Regards Alan
  18. Hi Mike, Like you I will be travelling down the A17 early in the morning. Regards Alan
  19. Hello Ruthie, Reedham Ferry's number is 01493 700429 I would phone them to book a table and to reserve a mooring. Regards Alan

  22. Hi Tim, Try a cool wash, it may sort out all your problems, failing that maybe a snorkel might help. Regards Alan
  23. I did my first face-mask shop at Morrison's yesterday and also donned the mask whilst going to the Post Office later in the day.
  24. Hello Ruthie, Welcome to the forum. Your plan looks OK, I would overnight at Reedham Ferry rather than at Reedham. It might be better to go with the flow and adapt your plan to suit. If you overnight at the Norwich Yacht Station I would go to the far end (you will see 3 Electric posts, it is a lot quieter there. rope up through the mooring rings but tie off on the boat, it is also a good idea to drop the mud weight. Its a pity that you are setting off from Loddon, it will be on my list for visiting. I am setting off now on Sunday rather than Tuesday because one of our owners is leaving early. If you see Ranworth Breeze give me a wave. Regards Alan
  25. Helen, Its not the Yare Regards Alan
