Blimey. Is that the 10% + 2 rule?

Was that a proper police caution for speeding with a fine or a telling off?

The one at Wroxham Broad is good. Take lots of pound coins for the ticket machine! This guide is also useful: http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/b...s_Slipways.pdf

This is another good guide - Written for fishers but lists slipways and other useful info

Great pic on page 4 of a small boat with electric bow thruster

If you see an Excel SD330 at Vale Road - that will be us. We've not deceided exactly what we are doing yet but we will be heading for the Wroxham at some point to launch from Riverside park.

Vale Rd Trimmington Report.
As said free parking, quiet even on a sunny bank holiday Saturday afternoon. It is possible to drive down to the beach, unload and then drive up 30 meters to the car park. When we were there there were 2 4x4s on the beach and two vans at the bottom of the road. There isn't a slipway, just a road that stops at the beach.
NR11 8DF is the post code of the "Sandy Gulls" caravan site next to it.

We found it OK, but way too choppy for a SIB- The jet skiers were having fun though.
This photo was taken from where we parked.

Hoveton Riverside Park Report:

The park has a decking platform for an easy chuck in. The hammer shaped water is where we launched.
http://pikeonline.co.uk/fishery-maps...e-park-hoveton

Park for free off Station Road, behind the tourist info office NR12 8DB. Go down next to the Pharmacy then behind. The public toilets have soap and hot water and don't stink either.

Boat in a boot 20 meters from the water.

If this is full park in Roy's carpark. The sign said free for up to 4 hours, but no further sign-age or payment meters. The chap in Tourist office said it was fine to park there all day when I was buying my licence, 1 week licence for 22.50

Having parked, its either a 20 meter hump to the public moorings or a 50 meter hump to the decking platform.

The public moorings were busy and I didn't want get squashed by a hire boat so we went for the decking - Sheltered and calm. Its deep enough for the outboard.

Excel moored at the launch platform

The foot bridge is about three feet air draft so easy to slip under but it keeps the hire boats out. After the bridge you can join the main river and then go where you like. A few canoes used this deck but that was it.

Super SIB launch/recovery place - We have used this on two days so far and are hoping to get another day in this week!

We passed two Broads Authority speed traps by Wroxham Broad, both shouted to see our licence numbers - I didn't stick them to the Excel as I was warned that I may not get them off! Instead I had them in poly wallets flapping about. The GPS ensured that we were doing the 5 mph. The boat overtaking us got the "Slow Down" sign.
