100 + Hirers Out On Friday

Post by Dances With Otters » March 27th, 2018, 8:29 pm

I believe Richos has over a hundred boats going out on Friday, so one could assume a similar amount would be coming out of Wroxham too. That's 200 boats coming out in one day and you got to admit that's a lot of traffic.

I'm coming out soon. My boat is very tired after four years of nonstop use and abuse and after being so spoilt by the serenity of winter, I just can not personally deal with the stress levels of some of the hire boats. Notice I did not say all?
I was thinking of putting a F.O.I. request in to see how many boat crashes were reported last year and compare the private boats to the hire boats.

I did read that from Martham 16 yachts and four motor-cruisers from Martham Boats. So standing room only. In the past I have known a lot more go out for Easter from Richardsons , more like 160 at one time and more will go out on Saturday. I cannot see the attraction myself , it must be impossible to moor up and get any peace and quiet.

Certainly not holiday weather. I just fired up the burner, it's bloody freezing.

Unfortunately Easter if it is early has a habit of being like this. Keep the thermals on for a while longer.

102 boats out of Richos today and a further 86 tomorrow
A boat makes a big hole in the water in to which you throw money
