    Locks Inn

    Following a conversation with Tim who owns the Triangle Brewery and used to have the Locks a few years ago, Grain Brewery have taken the place over from 1st October I understand so I guess they have closed to do some refurbishment. Colin who has been in charge for a number of years has left according to Tim Boycee

    David the boat in your picture was indeed designed & built by Langford and Alphacraft and that boat Mustang was Langford's own private craft and was never used on the hire fleet Boycee

    Really sad news the broads has lost a true Broadsman and a great boat builder.He gave me lots of useful information and help over the many times we chatted. Sadly Alphacraft went into decline after he handed over the reins but he still talked of future developments which will not now come to fruition. Our condolences to his family and my thanks for designing my Alpha 35 centre cockpit a great boat in my opinion RIP old friend Boycee & Mags

    Marina Quays

    Really hope you get your plans passed and you can go ahead with the development, it will be great to see Marina Quays in use again rather than its current dilapidated state. In my opinion it is a far more pleasant option for mooring at Gt. Yarmouth than the YS Boycee

    A Summer's Tale

    Hi Howard The Crown was closed for a few weeks while the new Landlady Linda got the place sorted out. It re-opened late May and we have been in a couple of times. Beer was good and would be to your taste, food being served looked good and she had almost finished refurbing the Restaurant. Plans to have live music nights and appears to be well supported by the locals. Linda and her husband used to have The Crown at Trunch until he sadly died, and until she took The Crown at Smallburgh she worked for Sonia at The Ferry House Surlingham. She's a nice lady and runs a good pub Boycee

    The Good Old Days

    Jono that is quite uncanny. In 1966 I hired Sandpiper 6 N331 from Sandersons at Reedham when it was just 6 weeks old and my own boat I named Sandpiper after the Sanderson boat. Way back in 1996 I met Steve Sanderson who is still a friend today and one of the two brothers who took over the business when their father retired, after working for him at Sanderson Marine. Steve actally gave me the original letters and numbers from Sandpiper 6 which are mounted on polished wood and hang in the lounge of Sandpiper. Sandpiper 6 N331 is still on the river and has been modified and restored fully, I came across it twice on my recent visit to the Broads.Colin Sanderson, Steve's brother is now sole owner of Sanderson Marine,which still operates as a hire boat yard Boycee
