Doesn’t this look great? Had to have a chardonnay to celebrate. Thank you to Peter Muller and team for doing such a sterling job and providing such clear instructions.
When the towpath changes sides, and the weather is warm and sunny again (not tomorrow - more rain due) we will do the other side.
The rest of the day has been spent doing cleaning - washed down one side of the boat, cleaned the cratch cover (lots of green algae growing on it after a wet winter!) and chased down several spiders who have taken up residence and are not paying rent!
David has been purchasing stuff online - an aerial, cable, a tool for clearing the prop shaft that means he can avoid getting deep down in the engine bay.
By the way, did I tell you we have travelled 14 miles from where we first collected the boat? Given we did about 3 of those miles 3 times, our total is 20 miles in 6 days. I think it can safely be said that we have slowed right down!
Sleep now, even tho it is still light.
