    ChrisF,
    That's one of the beauties of cruising the Norfolk Broads, you don't have to mess around with locks. There are a couple of quite low bridges, with large boats at both Wroxham and Potter Heigham those two there is a pilot available to get you under the bridge. My boat I had was 21ft and it would just go under both of them at high tide. I really do miss the boat at times. It was a great pick me up if I ever felt a bit down. Also the fishing up there I really loved that.

    We spent a week in the Norfolk Broads a couple of years ago and hired a boat for the day. Used to have a cruiser and speedboat in the family many years ago and would have loved to have had another cruiser but nowhere to keep one now.

    Two family members have narrowboats but not my cup of tea. Not helped by having long flights of locks in both directions which take a long time to get through!

    PhilH,
    That is my Huntsman that I built way back in 1982. She has a hard life. I push my boats to the limit. I used to over power them when I ran IC engines. These brushless motors are now more powerful than IC's. It's just the cost of getting decent LiPo's. Now I am retired funds are not so available. I used to do extra overtime to fund these costly habits. Now I seem to have to sell of some of my boats or other bit's on Ebay to raise the money to but things. Eight years of retirement and enjoying not working. I have just sent off to China for a couple of 4mm flexi shafts, I cannot afford the cost's of our model shops for some of my bit's.

    This is my Huntsman R/C out on the River Thurne up on the Norfolk Broads. These were taken back in 2004, she is stuck out in my shed and she has a small leak on the rear Port corner. I plan to upgrade the 550 brushed motor with a Brushless motor. She then might lift off the water a bit more. She was running on a quite heavy 12volt lead acid battery. Next time (when I get around to it) she will run on a LiPo battery. I actually got to give it a run 3/4s of a mile op river against the tide and then under the Potter Heigham Bridge and into the boat yard where I used to moor my boat that we chased her with. The last picture was my boat that I chased the Huntsman with I had for 20 yrs in Potter Heigham Broads Haven Boatyard.

    HI, PhilH, I have in my shed a fibreglass Huntsman Hull I purchased from Anglia Model Shop in Gorlstone, Norfolk (A.M.S.)
    just before it shut down. It has a deck fixed to it and I got it for the measly sum of Β£15.00.
    I have torn the Rota Cuff in Both of my shoulders, I know the feeling you have. I had the right shoulder don 15 yrs ago and since then I have torn it again beyond repair. I was getting the left shoulder sorted just as Covid started, since then I haven't been able to get anything done with the hospital .
