Hi From An Older New Member!

Recommended Posts

I joined a few weeks ago but thought it about time to say hello.

We currently own a static holiday caravan in Kessingland and mainly hire day boats from CC Marine in Beccles to take ourselves up and down the river with or without the grandchildren !

I first started coming to Beccles in the late 1960's with my With dinghy and Seagull outboard and spent many a happy hour on the river ---Gosh all the boatyards up-river from the bridge in those days.

I/We have hired many boats over the years , here are a few i remember---

Forest Brown-Waveney Yacht Station

Stalham Vanguard-Richardsons



Star Glory (Twice!) -Powles--Best boat ever!!

Little Gem-Richardsons

Sheerline-George Smith.

No doubt a few more will spring to mind as soon as I have finished this post!

Welcome along from another caravanner! We have a static van at Lowestoft. Mid week boating breaks and an occasional day boat have been our lot over the last couple of years with the caravan as a good base for relaxing weekends.

Yes welcome from me to,I bet the sound of a seagull engine would take you back to the 1960s, like a piece of music it does have that effect :default_stinky:

Many thanks for the warm welcome, we are up from deepest Hertfordshire for a week in the caravan tomorrow so although we will not be water based , The Wherry at Oulton Broad may well be utilised from time to time !

As for the Seagull outboard, I may well have a couple of spark plugs and prop springs hiding in the garage still !!
