From a report in the UK Sunday Times last week end it seems all those things that AR was aiming his criticism of in his portrayal of the Hullabaloos in CC is once again a problem on the Norfolk Broads.

The report (I can't provide a link as you have to be an ST subscriber)told how cabin cruiser hirings by hen and stag parties are causing problems with the excessive drinking and extreme lewd behaviour.

I have memories of this being a problem in the 1970s, and then most hire companies refused to hire boats to all male or female groups, it seems now the lure of more income or fear of accusations of discrimination have meant companies once more allow them - and the trouble they cause!
