Thank you everyone for your advice, it's invaluable to get this kind of info. Looking forward tremendously to visiting almost "regular" places now on the Northern and seeing some new ones on the Southern broads next week.

The old adage of "slowly does it" is always in my mind for mooring up, and as always grateful for anyone offering to catch a rope !

I would love to mudweight but we will have a dog with us.  The extra hour sounds useful.  Thank you Marshman.

I remember my first time on the Broads as a newly wed in 1982.  Just the two of us and we didn't have a clue about tides and bridges.  We crossed Breydon at will in a very small boat, not all all concerned by the swirling water.  Oh to be young and fearless again.  Which brings me to another question.  Would it be ok to go though Yarmouth an hour before Low Water?  Or an hour after slack water if we choose the very early am time? Boat has a 6" 6" air draft.

Your air draft will not cause you problems at any state of tide, but what you have to bear in mind is that tide. The Bure continues to flow out for about 45 - 60 minutes after slack water, so if you get to GY an hour before slack, you'll be punching a strong tide (and wasting fuel) for the next couple of hours, as you head up the Bure.

Leaving it until an hour after slack water means that you'll be against the tide across Breydon Water (but the flood isn't as strong as in the Bure), and you'll have the benefit of the flood going up the Bure. If you choose this time, be sure to take a wide swing around the yellow post at the entrance to the Bure, so as not to get caught out and be swept towards it as you make the turn.

"..for the avoidance of any doubt, the broads are not legally a national park and do not come under the national park legislation, and nor will they."

Thank you, that's very helpful.  Now just have to contain the excitement for the next 4 months. Wink
