Re: First Whack Of The Season

Years ago this did actually happen! "Hoseasons Boaters Handbook" came with every booking and was stuffed with all sorts of advice and rules. Even had a couple of pages for you to fill in a holiday log. Well worth looking out for these on fleabay as they do bring back memories.

Re: Good hardware shop for fixings

For future reference for anyone else, there are a couple of good "old fashioned" almost hardware shops, one in Brundall and another in Acle. I seem to recall a decent one in Loddon as well.

Re: Moving our boat to the Broads

Hope you are taking a look at Brundall Gardens, an idyllic approach through the woods and a good marina with all the facilites you need. I suspect a tad cheaper than Ting Dene as well!

Some simply anti-foul the water line! What you can't see you don't know!

Re: Some Old Photos.

Could the fire possibly be the old Bridge Hotel at Potter Heigham? Used to frequent the shed next door for "Jonathan Crowe's heavy but gentle" disco!

Re: Is Ranworth Broad Privately Owned?

I've just read your question again and now realise you do actually mean the closed off Broad. I think this is also owned by Cators.

Re: Is Ranworth Broad Privately Owned?

As far as I know the Cator family own most of it, nailed down or not! I have been known to be wrong though!
I'm assuming you mean the navigable Malthouse Broad which is often, mistakenly, referred to as Ranworth Broad which is private and criminally closed to navigation!.

Re: Firing Up Time

A mate of mine has webasto/ebertype warm air heating and, rather cleverly I thought, has managed to set it up with a wifi connection and can switch it on from the pub as they shout last orders!

Re: Feeding Birds.

Looks like Londis but I thought they had been taken over! Maybe they kept the barrows! When was this photo taken? If recently a well worded communication is in order!

Re: When People Keep Feeding The Birds By Your Boat.

That response over there just illustrates one of the points I was making Rick!
