Enjoy Commodore we did last Sept, Don't worry about the heating onboard it's great system they've used and for 6 days cost me £90 fuel. Which for the size of the boat and heating looking after itself i've used more fuel on smaller boats.

Hi Siddy,

Read your blog a few times and glad about the heating being good. I have the a/c on out here at the moment, so will use the heating a lot in the mornings and at night. Getting really excited now.

Sunday 2nd April

Later start to day fill up with water. Then ring yard due to ran out of gas so arranged to meet them at Loddon. Up river nice slow cruise up to Reeedam to have a quick stop for lunch and wait on the engineer to change our gas cylinders. Quick pop up to the shops for few essentials. Then off we set for Loddon. Nice slow quiet cruise along the main river then making a left turn down the river to Loddon. Not many boats coming the other way till into Loddon so nice quiet cruise into loddon. Plenty of room on the staithe so spin the boat round and slowly moor up. Slow trip up to the premier shop have a look round. Back on board to chill and sit on the sun loungers seen as warm and watch another boat trying to be repaired. Night spent on board nice quiet night the mooring were full by about 5pm. Few boats moved off later on to other moorings.

Monday 3rd April.

Up reasonably early breakfast cooked and all washed up and put away. Set off from Loddon about 9am set for great yamouth. Ring the yacht station to see what bridge clearance is at yarmouth is to hear high tide has been so tide is on way out so by time we are there from loddon be plenty of bridge clearance to pass through.  So slow drive up the chet onto the main river and making a right turn. Not a lot along the way of boat movement tide pushing along nicely.Through the bridge at Reedham with plenty of room to spare. On to Breydon water and see what the boat can do quiet a bumpy ride over but not to bad of a journey across. Turning left past the yellow post and clearing both bridges with plenty of room. Only 1 boat coming the other way that gave way to us so easy passage. Popped along side at yacht station to moor overnight. Another call to the engineer due to light on display showing how much battery charge is left went out. Out came engineer he sorted our few problems out and off he went. Time for lunch then off to the sea front for the arcades. Few hours spent down the sea front back to the boat. Time for dinner and try out the take away menus within the yacht station. Burger and chips for 2 of us and Chinese for 3. Food came quick and was quiet nice. Spent night on board chilling out watching tv and playing board games.

Tuesday 4th April.

Up early to catch the tide to push us most of the way to Horning to nights stop at the new inn. The yacht station guys gave us a hand to get going then a slow trip up the river. Stopped off at Acle to chill out and stretch legs and have a lunch due to running really early. Once had lunch off we set towards Horning. We stopped opposite the swan inn, to chill out and let the kids have a run around. Set off down river further into Horning past our over night mooring and on towards Wroxham. Then turned boat round not far outside Horning to return towards the New inn. Gus was there ready to help guide us into our mooring river was quiet busy but managed to get in quite easily with his help. Dropped the mudweight and onto the boat to chill out for a hour before we went into the village to see what was there. Returned back to the boat after visiting the mace shop. Had a rest on board before we headed to there little arcades within the pub grounds. Hour or so in there with kids on the 2p machines. back on board to get ready for dinner. Then off into the pub just before 6pm to be seated at our table straight away. Very nice meal had in the pub and back on board around 8pm. Settled and watched some tv before going to bed.
