    Oh dear. Nothing like setting the bar high is there?! Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network
  2. I did have a look once but I found the duct tape universal! I forgot to take it off when we left once....... Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network
  3. I know what they look like- I tape over the Perspex bit in the kids bedroom so they don’t get up at first light :-) Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network
  4. But in the bedrooms darker ones might be better....? Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    Another One Bites The Dust

    That’s a real shame. We went a few times and it was a great day out. Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network
  6. It does on some boats but on Ranworth Breeze I am not so sure. Best get Alan to to confirm. Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    Syndicate Enquires

    You should try her in the school holiday weeks- the gaps at side on moorings are often too small! We always take the dinghy to increase our options. We have peaked with 4 adults, 4 children and 2 dogs. I would describe it as cosy :-) No doubt solo cruising could cause some problems, particularly as the upper helm only exits to one side.

    Diversify and cash flow is what’s its all about! I presume they will be moored and turned around in the current visitors mooring basin? Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    Syndicates, Thoughts

    In terms of Thunder we pretty much get all of the above. With the exception of: - we need to take bed linen, duvets onboard - we need to clean the outside ourselves - we need to fuel and pumpout But we don’t get a choice of boats! Thunder is also well equipped inside- shore power, immersion heater, a new spring mattress, a galley equipped to feed about 20 people and more. I paid £3,500 for my 2 week share about 5 years ago and it has cost £900 a year plus fuel and pumpout. A couple of those years we had an extra week. And as a bonus (for us anyway!) we get school holidays! That is a deal that I am also very happy with! Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    And how much money a Syndicate has in the bank!! Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    Although with Thunder she is probably out 40 weeks a year so probably has higher costs as a result but spread between 12.5 owners. Doing work yourselves is okay if you have the skills and expertise amongst the owners but don’t forget those owners can sell up and move on. My suggestion would be that if 3 or 4 of you want to buy Into a Syndicate and take it down the self managed route then all buy into the same syndicate and then vote together accordingly. I imagine most syndicates are probably around the 60/40 for self managed so probably quite easy to swing the vote. Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    I have always held the view that we as a syndicate we should buy back shares for Thunder when an owner is keen to sell and the price reflects that. We could turn reduce the number of owners over time. However, not much appetite at the moment and one barrier is the management fee. Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network

    From my own personal experience as a syndicate owner very rarely have dogs been an issue amongst owners. More moans and groans about how owners tie the ropes on the home mooring :-) Sent from my iPhone using Norfolk Broads Network
