Good evening boaters ! could someone kindly advise me on how long it takes from entering the boat yard to getting on your way ie induction/training etc? As wife is trying to work out where to go first thanks in advance.

I think measuring a piece of string is involved here ! different day, different time of day, different yard will all make a difference, so chillax this is Norfolk ! go with the flow, remember the beauty of not planning is failure comes as a complete surprise !

Hello Coxswain and welcome to the forum. There is no fixed time but if the boat is ready for you by the time you have been to the office, unloaded car, systems and safety check and tuition if it's less than an hour and a half think of it as a bonus, hope this helps you.

All copied essexboy don't plan on rushing, just wondered.
if it's hours that will cut our options down a bit?
Also it's peak season so moorings may be hectic !
Fail to plan , plan to fail !

Hi Coxswain,

I normally arrive at a boatyard a bit early around lunch time a little after 12.00. Depending on your luck if the boat you are hiring is ready early I believe your boat induction is likely to be done in order of arrival at reception.

I wouldn't expect the induction to take more than an hour.

You can see someone else's experience by viewing the last post from the following link.

You can see a video of a boat induction provided by Richardson's Here   Cheers



Kind Regards
Alan...

Moorings in Horning in particular, are like hen's teeth in high season. You are already there in a prime location, why not spend the first night there?

It will give you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the boat and you can set off relaxed, in the morning. Just a thought.  Smile
