le boats horning

We are hireing a boat for a week , this is our first time , we have hired a narrow boat before, when we did the narrow boat we got lots of information in the post and a dvd to explain a little of rules etc , but we havent heard any thing from them apart from the invoice, and its a week to go, i thought we get a welcome letter and maybe a map? am i being overly worried.

Most of the boat companies take you out for a one hour trial drive and suply you with a map etc when you arrive. I haven't done Le Boat so I don't know if this is the case with these guys. I hope you have a great Holiday.

Hi Suefone, we went with Leboat last year but booked through Hoseasons & did get some paperwork but no dvd. I spent hours on the internet researching everything about the broads as it was our first time. This is very useful broads-authority.gov.uk/boating/safety.html if you then look under the better boating guide you will see lots of videos, very helpful. It was harder than it looked but at the same time we loved it. What boat are you hiring we had an emperor last year but just me & my husband this time so we are hiring a capri.

This year we booked direct with Leboat it was cheaper & it was mainly done online & via an e-mail which is their head office & yes a lot less info.

You can ring the boatyard direct at Horning we found the staff all to be very friendly & will help you in any way they can. I don't know when you go so will not post anything else for now as you may allready be onboard.

The boatyard is in a nice location & within walking distance of Horning village.

Have a lovely time.

Hi

We have hired Emperor for a week this summer from Le Boat (through Hoseasons). Have you any hints / tips or advice for things we should do / need to take etc? There are 6 of us and I am worried about storage space!

Thanks

Hi Joanna

The storage space is quite good on an Emperor.

Have sent you a pm.
