Re: Broads System Failure

It's quite ironic as they have a published PDF on how much of a conservation area it is yet the staithe is neglected and derelict and gridlocked. It would be interesting to know how that system worked when the staithe was a wherry pitstop. In those times it was acknowledged as a public staithe which...

Re: Broads System Failure

It ruins it for every other liveaboard too. I had a chap come up to me at Stalham Staithe moaning because he seemed to think I was liable for council tax for some bizarre reason, however, the folks that don't play the game, if you like, get left alone to abuse the system. Ironically the chap was a p...

Re: Broads System Failure

Stalham town council did a land registry check in 2003 and discovered that it did in fact not have an owner.

Broads System Failure

I am all for live and let live but when people take the **** and say stuff you to everyone else, it makes my blood boil. These boats abuse Stalham Staithe and have no right to do so. They are anti social in the true sense of the word full stop. One boat has moored there for months. Anyone who tells ...

Right To Navigate Tidal Waters

It is a generally accepted principle in the United Kingdom that we all have a right to navigate tidal waters. To the best of my understanding this is down to days passed when such waters were more highways than places to escape to. Now, a chap very kindly reminded me of this recently over a couple o...

How Quiet The Rivers Are.

I had a little trip up the River Bure recently and I was so surprised how quiet the rivers are in general.

Refurbished Dinghy For Sale

Almost finished with this dinghy refurbishment. I was going to keep it but another one has come along requiring some TLC so thought I'd stick it up for sale. I believe it is a Fibrocell and has had a full refurbishment, including all wood, GRP repairs and a paint job in Marine Green and White. The f...

Broads Registration Numbers

You may have noticed that the Broads Authority are clamping down on boat registration marks. An issue has been brought up in conversation that they are insisting on all boats following suit, however, byelaws state otherwise. There are indeed exceptions to this rule and that is to deal with sailing b...
