Hello All


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. Been away for a while due mainly to work and personal problems, so thought i would say hello again and update on whats been happening.

Moved GK to her new home in Brundall last tuesday, its a bit of a contrast to Horning. Amazed at how few hireboats are out, it looks like silverline have the majority of theirs on the yard still. Passed their place today and i have to say their boats do look top notch.

So here we are at our new home at cove marina. Loads of post winter jobs to do , not least of all a really good scrub and shampoo, thats if it ever stops raining of course!

Hope to see you all around and about during the season.

Cheers for now

And yet another PS. I know there is a section on this somewhere but i am darned if i can find it.

Now i am a newbie moorer in the south, does anyone have any reccomendations for fuel and pump outs around brundall and ideas of costs. In the north i always used boulters - they were great always service with a smile and had a loyalty card for pump outs too. Any info gratefully received.

Thanks in advance

We us brooms close  to us .David at Cove can do fuel and gas.Steve (07946663053) at Beccles  not sundays does fuel and pump.NYA has fuel you need to sign up and pay a fee then you get a discount on fuel.

Being moored at Brooms they are our point of call.  I think Swancraft still have the facility?

Hi Trev, 

We are at Cove as well.

Pump out is also available  at Cove for berth holders.

Others I know of are 

Brooms pump out, petrol and diesel also sell leccy cards.

Sandersons will do pump outs and diesel.

WRC diy pump out ( well it was diy fill), petrol and diesel.

Hippersons (Beccles) pump out and diesel.

Swans pump out, diesel.

If you are stuck I think Silverline would help out if they are not busy.

Unsure about Loddon, now some yards have stopped hiring.

Freedom will I think.

Norwich YS pump out.

I thought my diesel was a bit low, saw some pikey swans in flat caps making a getaway on a reed island with a barrell under each wing. 

Thanks everyone for the input, much appreciated. It was lovely to meet you both today ian. The covers over your windows came loose after you went, we have put them back up for you.
