Broads Authority Fining The Wrong Boats

Post by Miles »

This is crazy. Such heavy handed tactics when far greater offences take place and get totally ignored.
Anyone ever seen Richardson's on change over day?

Watch this video!

Wouldn't say the wrong boats, had one of these boats overtake me near St Benets Abbey, I was doing the speed limit in my dingy (have gps speedo) and the wash was huge from them, made it difficult to control for a few seconds, could see other boats having difficulty too.
Do agree there should be more prosecution's both private and hire.

St. Benet's Abbey is a speed stretch.
What were you doing on a dinghy so far out?

Its a 5mph , hardly a speed stretch, its quite a big dinghy, quite capable of going across Barton and Hickling broad with a good wind blowing.

What I meant was...not a good place to get frying an English breakfast.
I got waved at once there... wouldn't mind but was on tick over.
You must wave one day.. always nice to put a face to a name.
