Boats Out For Xmas

Post by High Seas » December 23rd, 2017, 7:38 am

I wonder how many boats will be out for Christmas?
Yesterday, two hire boats came into Stalham so there are a few hirers about.
Let's hope they don't want to use any electric points as I am afraid the computer will say, No!. :roll:
How dare you expect the electric points to be on, what are you? Some kind of weirdo? :roll:

Er which electric points are off ? I only know of one location and its south not north n since hire craft are highly unlikely to be allowed by the yard to cross braydon then not gonna affect boats on the northern rivers , thing is though BA will and have in the past turned them off because of those that persist in spending huge amounts of time on moorings plugged in , this also obviously affects those boats on hire if they want electric , however they ha e the advantage of being able to go in hire yards that private boats normally can't .

Were you at Whitlingham that time when we all gave up the electric posts as someone needed the power for a breathing device?

Well, we’re out and a handful of privates we know are out too. Only hire boats we’ve seen are a couple from the broads boating company, and one from NBD, possibly employees or friends of the hire companies though? Not sure if they’re hiring to the public or not.
There’s a private moored in front of me looks abandoned, knowbofy been to it since we got here. Moored in front of leccy post but not plugged in.

If it's a Hampton Safari with navy hull? The chap has just bought it, he owns the Shetland in the dyke opposite too.
I did see a Fantasy 20 at Wayford that looks abandoned with broken windows.

Just seen your livestream on FB,I am surprised your signal is strong enough at the mooring area. That's why I moved over to the other side as it works better there.

Yes please that’s right, Hampton with navy hull. Really makes no difference to me if he’s leaving the boat on the Staithe this time of year I guess, it’s nice and quiet. He should move it away from the water and electric points as he’s not using them.
Signal was okay coming down the Dyke, pretty lousy now though.
The phone signal is the single most annoying thing on the broads.
Still, it’s Christmas, I’ll stop moaning lol
