  1. I'm pretty sure it was named Royal Escort.
  2. Thank you Malcom, enjoyed your tale as always.
  3. Thanks for the write up and photos Jay. You certainly packed the cruising miles in.
  4. I like the brochure page, Vaughan. The stand out phrase that dates it and made me smile is "book a television set". Ooh, the luxury!
  5. Great photos as always Malcom. I'm pleased to see that mooring spot just up from Hunsett Mill is usable. Sometimes in the past it's been very overgrown on the bank there.
  6. That happened to me there last year. It was only after we'd moored further along I spotted the sign with our boat name on was facing away from the river.
  7. Sounds good. What's the mooring availability there now? Is it just the short bit in front of the pub with the mooring upstream still closed?
  8. I've never heard the names. Where are they?
  9. Yes Hoveton Viaduct is the best option for a Wroxham stopover in my view, assuming you can get through the bridge. It's quiet, usually easy to find a space and yet a short, pleasant walk from the village. It's also the closest mooring to Hoveton and Wroxham Station which has come in handy on occasion.
  10. Good upgrade though. I was looking at both as possible options for later this year and there's a big price difference and a big difference in comfort by the looks.
  11. That's the first time I can remember seeing anyone advise waiting longer than an hour after low water for South to North but it makes perfect sense. I often make the mistake of setting off too early, arriving less than hour after low and then being against the tide all the way to Stacey Arms. I know people often recommend a short stop at the Yacht Station to allow time for the flood to begin but I've never fancied doing that because I'd rather see the back of Great Yarmouth as soon as possible.
  12. I didn't bid for this and good job too because it and another from the same period both went for a 3 figure sum. With Blakes long gone and Hoseasons brochures about to follow, I guess the value of these will only go one way. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F273796087011
  13. Go for it! I'll be afloat the same week as you, starting off with the meet and then planning to go through GY at 6ish Sunday evening.

    I said Ack-le for many years until I found out it's pronounced Ay-cul. Isn't it Saint Olives and not Saint Oh-lavs?
  15. Exactly the situation I'm interested in, the worst case scenario where tide, wind and poor judgement combine to get you in a pickle.
