In October 1967, John returned for another holiday on the Broads, this time on T309
“Loch Shiel” from J.Loynes and Sons of Wroxham. This quirky looking 2 berth cruiser
was one of the four “Loch Invar” class of motor cruisers which were 26ft in length.
Hiring in October meant that the boat could be hired for a total cost of just £20
18s for a week as this was classed as being the “Bonus” rate period in Blakes 1967
brochure. During the peak weeks of the summer months that cost doubled to just over
£40 per week.
