I have  a photo of my Mum and Dad on a boat, on the broads in the 1950's.

The boat is "Broadland Teal" Ripplecraft - Summerlayton (W411)

Doing a bit of research, I believe this was built in Christopher Cockerels boatyard.

Would they have picked up the boat from his boatyard?  Can we tell where it was hired from?

Is there still a boatyard there?

Christopher Cockerel owned Ripplecraft at Somerleyton and it is highly likely your parents started from there

It is still a boatyard but no longer hires craft
