Re: How To Clean GRP Boats

Oxalic acid is what I use, it comes in powder form and you mix it with warm water and put it in a garden sprayer (oxalic acid comes from rhubarb) this is the same stuff as star bright hull cleaner. Oxalic acid can be bought of eBay for about £7 a tub and it will last you for years

Re: Hire Boats Still Out

I do think that a lot of the hire boats are to big and 40ft should be the biggest allowed with only a small percentage allowed by each hire fleet 30 to 35 foot is ample

Re: Pie & Pastie Rip-Off Gays Staithe/Neatishead

I have sampled one of his pies this year, a sausage meat one, yes they are a bit pricey but it was quite a large pie would have served 4, if you were to do a weeks worth of food shopping from him you would need to take out a small mortgage, I think he aims his trade at the hire boat holiday makers

Re: The Norfolk Broads Is In Its True Natural State

Yes we saw them moored as we'll, if I hadn't have moved moorings we would have not got our boat back in to our original mooring as they are 2 abreast all the way down the bank side, so glad we moved to Broads Edge and it is slightly cheaper to if you are not on electric 👍

Re: The Norfolk Broads Is In Its True Natural State

That's because Richo's last day that the boats are supposed to be returned was Thursday, they have now stopped hiring until March👍
