  1. Other than Potter I have squeezed an Aquafibre Diamond 43 under every bridge. I never understand why Beccles is listed as a problem- low tide can be 9 foot plus? Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    Live footage.... Very slow going against the incoming tide through Horning. Tide should turn shortly apparently...... Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    View from the New Inn. Not much breeze though.... Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network
  6. I can see England winning the World Cup and the Ashes without losing a match.... Fingers crossed they do! Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network
  7. I can certainly concur that the North is very busy this week- even cotishall was full Sunday evening. We managed to squeeze into Neatishead at lunchtime and have stayed for the evening with a stream of boats coming along only to have to turn! Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network
  8. Awesome numbers. I gave up calculating my syndicate savings when they hit £10k as I doubt anybody was believing me anymore! Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

  10. Not sure if anybody has seen or heard of this lad before: https://twitter.com/KayakCleanupWil Seems like he is doing great job! Apologises to those without a twitter account...... Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network
  11. We were once on Thunder when we were clobbered be an Alpha Craft that never stopped. Fortunately we had witness details. We were pushed up onto the concrete mooring, bursting a fender and scraping the gel coat and vents where we hit the wall. Phoned Alphacraft who told us to call in which we did. They laughed and said “is that it?” Brooms repaired it and charged Alpha Craft over £500 plus VAT for that “minor work”. Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    Tolls

    I would have thought that with an annual toll date the rangers don’t need to check for tolls all year round- they must know the boats on their patch and once they know they have been rolled they don’t need to check again until next April. Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network
  13. I reckon both might be difficult to be fair! Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network
  14. I have value to add here! We have taken Thunder through North to South one hour before LOW water. We were making 5mph on tickover through the yacht station so not a great deal of steerage no real problem for an experienced helm. Had a bit of an issue when a craft castoff from the Yacht Station ably assisted by Yacht Station staff about 30m in front of us. The nice past the yellow post we struggled to make 3mph at about 2000 revs until under the big bridge then about 4mph across Breydon- this was before the new engine so we were not pushing it. I would say that if the weather is forecast for a fine weekend there will probably be a lot of privateers out and about on southern rivers so mooring at London May be a problem!
