Just been on the island seems to have been cleaned up a bit but there are quite a few mole hills there

molehills are fine, as long as nobody tries to make mountains from them :default_biggrin:

Hi,

I have never moored at Ranworth Island although it does look like a nice if a little pricey spot, have to agree with Matt though that Womack is a bargain. Litter facilities, pretty location with plenty of wildlife, public toilets, water and easy access to the village/pub shops etc for £3.00 one of the best value paid for moorings on the Broads, only problems are its popularity which goes with the territory and I understand from recent users that the water tap is a little slow.

Yes it is, and it does`nt help when some selfish idiot decides to monopolise it for over half an hour to wash his boat down, despite knowing several people, us included, were waiting to use it, and get away. Eventuaally i walked up and told him he had 2 minutes before i TOOK it off him. He mumbled something i could`nt hear and promptly threw it on the floor.

That’s somewhat of an understatement!

We've stopped there to give the dogs a nice run ashore. If there is no one else there it's great as they can go off the lead. Last time we were there though the BCE managed to miss the island completely when he launched their ball from the thrower. All that grass and he found the water lolBCE.jpeg

You should have just turned the tap off Neil

Yeah, agreed, but i wanted to make a point about his lack of consideration and selfishness. Hopefully, it taught him to be a bit more considerate to others.  When we fill up, and we see people wanting to do the same, we ALWAYS take our turn and never que jump.

You could have also asked him how much he had put in the honesty box

£10 for an overnight at Salhouse, with water and rubbish disposal  seems better value than £10 per night at Ranworth island where there are no facilities other than goose poo and hot and cold running mozzies.

Judging by the prices those days must have been a very long time ago.  £1 for overnight moorings at Great Yarmouth and 75p for Oulton Broad.  How things change and not for the better

Hi allowing for inflation £1 in 1977 equates to something like £6.50 in 2019 therefore it looks like the current overnight mooring fees at Yarmouth, Norwich etc are roughly double what they should be? I don't normally moor at yacht stations, perhaps the facilities have improved?
