Great Yarmouth is definitely a stretch of waterway that holds no comparison to any other parts of the Norfolk Broads.
The currentrrey is incredible at times, the tide level is very significant and navigation is a subject that every boater should be instructed about prior to crossing for the first time.
It is dangerous and any boat has the potential to get into trouble very easily.
A simple engine failure could result in a very seriously situation.

It is hard enough to turn and stop a boat with an engine. Imagine engine failure on ebb tide. A mud weight would most likely be useless.
I believe wherries used massive chains to control the vessels.
