Looked like someone had been making preparations to recover this when I went past earlier, would have been easier a couple of weeks ago on that exceptionally low tide!

The back door and windows below the water have been boarded up with what looked like plastic behind, seen boats raised from a lot worse positions than that using that method and a couple of good fire pumps, get water out quicker than it can get back in again! Shame the rest of his fleet have been at Stalham for at least the last 2 weeks!

The little orange boat was moored up on a private boat at Richardson's looking like it was about to go under too.
Those boards have been there for some time.
This bloke should have been moved on years ago.
He sat squatting at Sutton all winter and in the reeds all summer long and now his boats lay abandoned all over the place pissing everybody off.
It is ultimately the Broads Authority who will have to raise that sunken vessel and that means the toll payers have to cover this freeloader.
The authorities should have dealt with him years ago and turning a blind eye to his activities from fly tipping to having a flotilla of illegally moored and illegal vessels just demonstrates that something should have been done in the first place.
This one individual has single handedly ruined it for every liveaboard on the Norfolk Broads.
Well done Karl Phillips...... You are a piece of work.

All of his flotilla of boats need mooring in the middle of Barton Broad and let the RAF use them for bombing practice

How about hire boat mooring up practice at Richardson's? :D let them bang into that heep half a dozen times before they get let loose on the Broads like the Normandy beach landings
