More to the point for a lot of people would be can you do without the internet for a week.

That is a more nuanced question. Could I do without social media for a week? Yes, absolutely. I may want to share my exoeriances with others but I certainly don't need to.  Would I want to live witht the internet at all? Maybe not. Back in the day (15 years ago) I used to get waather forecasts via text message on a mobile phone. Befire that I used a pocket transistor radio. Both are now effectively obsolete solutions and I would not want to be without access to Windy or a similar weather app.

Judging by the number of prophylactics that used to wash up on slipways around Oulton Broad, back in the day, holiday makers found plenty to occupy themselves with on a Broads holiday! That was in the days before both pump-out toilets and TVs. 

I still remember my very first mooring on the Broads, it was Commissioners Cut in '69. Two couples in Miss Mystic from Maidencraft. The laydeez were unamused to wake up surrounded by Richards,Andrex and London Rubber Company products. Happy days!

ETA: there is still at least one boat TV hasn't come along to - ours!
