    Speeding On The Broads

    Always good to bring an old thread back to life but this seemed the most relevant. Interesting Broads Beat Twitter post just now: https://twitter.com/broadsbeat/status/1070323965942472705?s=21 I presume the picture is of the offending vessel. You will need to click on the link through to twitter to see all of the pictures. Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    My Day

    Well I am pleased to say that my 15 year old Vauxhall Corsa SXI passes her MOT yesterday first time with just one advisory. However, signs of rust breaking through underneath ☹️ Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    Goosander? No - Gooseandhim!

    The cleaner only does the inside and Thunder is a big girl! Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    One of the best things we ever did on Thunder was employ a cleaner :-) Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Can I put some of the Photos onto the Thunder Facebook page? Or I think Steve is set up to post, but that may have been his old phone :-) Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Is The Tipping Point Approaching?

    Brilliant thread! We were fortunate enough to buy into a syndicate boat about 8 years ago and have had at least 2 weeks afloat each year since. I reckon Thunder currently costs us about £850 a year for those 2 weeks. If we didn’t have the share I doubt we would often holiday afloat as the school holidays are pricey. My biggest frustration is the increasing in tolls over the last few years for which the return on the things that matter to us have dwindled. For the last few times afloat we have spent very little in the local pubs and restaurants, choosing instead to spend that money away from the Broads in other holidays. Next August we have Return Easy Jet flights for 4 to Lanzarote for £750, Air BnB for £700 for the week and car hire for £90. The tipping point will be when the £850 buys somewhere else. I imagine that will be once we don’t need to go in the school holidays. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Breydon Rescue

    I have personally seen Spirit of Breydon come to the rescue of a hireboat who had suffered an engine bay fire. They went alongside for the tow. Of course when it’s there and efficiently dealing with these types of incidents I would imagine they very rarely become newsworthy. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Brinks Serenade

    Do you reckon the difference between the 2 is six inches? I used to take Evening Shadow through Wroxham bridge regularly, in fact our first ever time we used her we came out of Barnes and went straight through! I seem to recall she was marked at 6ft 10 inch on the dash. But I find taking Thunder through far more of a challenge! It’s possible it’s the benefit of the centre cockpit on ES it even the nav lights on Thunder. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Breydon Rescue

    The coastguard report onto the Breydon grounding states one of the vessels suffered a breakdown during a windy crossing. They were a flotilla of four vessels. The Herbert Wood boats is an annual school trip @sgsBroads on Twitter if you want to follow their trip. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
