Freezing Weather


Recommended Posts

Horning Marina (Richardsons) was frozen over Sunday and Monday, although a navagble channel was cut by an incoming boat. Malthouse Broad was frozen, except again for a navigable channel. Tuesday after the rain it was nearly all gone but with the forcast last night I got back to Boulters for fuel and pumpout then the marina and called it a very short break. A gent at Ranworth said he had heard two boats had got stck on Barton Broad but can not substantiate.

We travelled from southern broads to northern on Saturday 19th and back to the south yesterday. It was very cold at times but stunningly beautiful. Down the Waveney and across Breydon with the canopy down in brilliant sunshine on Saturday, ditto up the Bure on Sunday. Malthouse Broad was very icy - we saw a boat picking its way through the ice but decided against trying our wooden hull against it. Salhouse mostly frozen. Most but not all dykes had ice, floating ice in Woxham. Monday was the worst day for ice, by the time we made our way south on Tuesday a lot, but by no means all, had cleared. Overall a magical few days.

Did well over 30 miles yesterday and the only boats we saw moving were a couple of BA workboats and, believe it or not, a BA ranger!

We had a BA ranger come up Acle Marina Dyke last Monday afternoon, probably checking those tolls:default_biggrin:
