Hi,  We are hiring a Broadsman (45ft) at the end of August. I have booked a mooring at the Oulton Broad Yacht Station so we can have a day out at Lowestoft. The Harbour Master has asked if we would like stern on or side on mooring.  I know there is a cost difference but are there any practical issues between the two at the station?

Thanks for your help

Mark

If you chose side on on the pontoon you will have an uninterrupted view out across the Broad , imho one of the best moorings anywhere in the Broads , stern on you will be facing towards shore/other boats etc.
Yes side on costs more , with electric it's I believe £18 but also includes 24/7 access to wc and also showers (£2) are available from 0800 till 17:00 , use the newly finished wet room as opposed to old shower though

no traffic, no fumes, no traffic wardens.......bliss!!

Should have added if visiting Lowestoft it is certainly worth catching the water ferry to get there (you can get the train back)

If you are offered a mooring on the floating pontoon moorings these are great as you'll have easy access to your boat due to no tidal drop to get on of your boat , but if you are offer d stern on moorings outside the harbour masters office you'll have a tidal drop difference to get on off your boat

Hi Mark The best mooring if you dont want electric is on the short finger pontoon in the corner not sure if priced at stern on or side as its both, its the shortest walk to pubs ect easy to get on and off at the side (no rise and fall) and the best view as you wont be surrounded by other boats 45 foot is on the large side and if you just say stern on you will be outside the harbour office on quey side with a possible 3 foot rise and fall if you want electric you will be stern on on the dog leg pontoon on the inside (the outer side is where  private boats try to go,you dont get knocked there) unless you speechify where you want to be moored,it can then be reserved for you.The best view over the broad is on the outer side this is for permanent moorers. Alternatively there are moorings outside the Wherry hotel they are stern on no electric but nearer to hotel.Try googling CCTV camera to get a view of both moorings.John
