  2. Have you ever stopped to think that these people dont want help? There are places they can go to get the help they need in Lincoln. They choose not to use them. You can not help people who do not want to be helped. This particular miscreant has already moved onto another scrap boat where he will cause yet more trouble for those unfortunate enough to be around him.
  3. Time for new ventures. I think we have squeezed in enough boating in the last 13 years to last us a lifetime. We have one last boating holiday in Belgium booked for next Easter and then we are doing some tenting next summer until we find the right motorhome for sale. We know which make and model we want we just need to find one for sale now!
  4. Hopefully wont have a boat for much longer so they would struggle. Let's just say that these "lads" don't just throw fireworks at just any boat that is moored up. This scrap boat and its various occupants have caused more than their fair share of problems on the ditch over the last five years or so. This wasn't just a random attack on a random boat. Falling on hard times doesn't give you free reign to ignore your responsibilities.

  7. One less scrap boat on the ditch. This one was well past its use by date. A scrap yacht hull with a shed on the back that has not been out of Lincoln for at least three years but CC's! No doubt it has no insurance so all you CRT licence holders will be subsidising the wreck removal.
  8. There are plenty of freehold moorings on the Southern Broads where you can liveaboard. There were a few for sale at Somerleyton not too long back. Agreed. In all the times we have been to the Broads we have never failed to find a mooring spot be it in our own small boat or on the larger hire boats even during the very busy season in the summer.
  9. NYA have a load of Summercraft ex hire boats for sale at the moment. We never hired from them but by all accounts they were very well maintained and looked after. The price includes a repaint in your choice of colour. They all have modern Nanni engines installed as well.
  10. And several of the open ones are not worth the effort of visiting.
  11. We have done a lot of our cruising, both on our own boat and on hire boats, on the Norfolk Broads and have never found it boring. We have been at all times of year from Early march, mid summer, school holidays and right through to the last hire weeks in November. It is beautiful at any time of the year. It can get busy during the school holidays but that is all part of the fun and we have always managed to get moored up where we have wanted too. The last time we went in October was during a period of prolonged heavy rainfall and the river levels were very high which made getting on and off the hire boat very difficult. But this is the first time we have had such difficulties and we worked around it. The Southern rivers are much quieter than the northern rivers but there are much longer stretched between towns and villages and the scenery is more reeds then anything else. Not to everyones taste but we quite enjoy it. The last boat we hired had a flybridge which offered great views across the reeds.

  13. Our mooring was always one of the last to freeze and first to thaw in the marina. We were free from the ice well before most of our friends boats. Liam broke some of them out using our old green plastic dinghy as an ice breaker. Can remember it well.
  14. That's the one. The ice in Burton Waters was 12 inch thick at the edges and an expensive Italian cruiser had to be cut free from the ice and craned out round on B pontoon as the ice had squeezed the hull and cracked it. From memory it was about 14 weeks we were stuck on our mooring with the floods and ice. I just have a hunch it will be similar this winter.
  15. Indeed. I reckon we are in for a repeat performance of 2010 where we had weeks of flooding followed by a deep freeze that lasted a few months.
