If it is safe can anyone recommend any beaches around Norfolk that don't suffer from unusual or dangerous tides or that have a barrier... I was possibly thinking waxham.. have seen plenty of jetskiers off there.

What do I need in terms of licence, insurance etc... do I need all of these to use the Norfolk Broads. I've found lots of conflicting rules for different rivers jurisdictions?

and lastly what is a boat safety certificate and do I need one for such a small craft??

Thanks in advance for any advice and help.
Hi there fella,don t know your neck of the woods,but my set up is similar to yours SEE MY AVATOR, there must be some sheltered waters around your way,i fish with a 3.3hp and poodles along very well,i go in flat calm weather ,has been a little lumpy at times,but get in with no probs,only fish half a mile out or so,25 ft of water being my deepest,i take all the required safety gear ,its a must,so you would need to study your waters,seeing where to fish in not to many currents etc,shame you so far away i could show you the ropes,so to speak.....................good luck with her
