Re: Speeding from the outset.

6147 verbal warnings? :roll: If that had been 6147 byelaw enforcements then none of this nonsense and I reiterate that....zero of this nonsense would be going on. The sheer fact that 6147 incidents require intervention indicates the scale of the issue. What is really disconcerting is those are incid...

Re: Speeding from the outset.

With all due respect Hylander and I mean that most sincerely, it is a classic case of if a tree falls in the forest when nobody is there, does that falling tree make a noise? 100% of hire boat collisions that I have personally experienced or witnessed have never stopped. Not in one single incident. ...

Re: Speeding from the outset.

Apathy is a big problem here on the Norfolk Broads and having been on the water for five years solid I tend to experience the negatives head on and continuously. So too would the Broads Authority if they were on the rivers 24/7 but they are not. They will nip to a mooring by van, write down some num...

Re: Speeding from the outset.

It has been suggested that over a hundred hire boats can leave that area in any one day. I have never seen any Broads Authority boats or staff monitoring the situation at any single time. They ignore the situation and pretend it doesn't exist. I would recommended raising the issue with the EDP as th...

Re: Speeding from the outset.

I watched a ranger telling people to slow down the other day in day boats nearby and personally I don't believe they were a problem neither were they speeding so I can't help by wonder why they don't tell the bigger ones that are speeding to stop it. :roll: The rangers have a tough job and nobody wi...

Disgusting Fly Tippers

I seriously struggle to comprehend how anyone can fly tip and then sleep at night. My only conclusion is that they are either stark raving mad or psychotic, either way there is never an excuse for this. I came across this in Chaplefield lane heading towards Stalham Staithe. To say I was disgusted wo...

Re: Low Water Levels

These were taken coming into Stalham after a fair bit of rain today.
Not the clearest as I was in motion but they clearly demonstrate the tide marks.

Re: cannot take a bit of critisism

Personally, I am not sure but I would be curious to ask him why he has permitted the abuse of so many people on his forum and never done anything about it other than to ban the members who were getting abused. I can only assume that is easier to ban a victim of discrimination, ridicule and prejudice...

Re: Almarine Seafire Classic Rare Broadland Project

Well, I was between a knife and a wall on this one as it had to either be relocated or saved. Its storage space was about to end so it had to be dealt with. Due to these little speedboats being quite iconic and important enough for Broadland Memories to write about them on their website, I decided t...
