Linda and Richard on Mary H treated us to a lovely dinner on Friday evening then we said goodbye to them on Saturday.
They’re heading on up the Wey and we’re heading back down onto the Thames. I’ve no doubt we’ll meet again soon as they’re planning a very similar summer cruising agenda.
We were pretty sure that the propeller wouldn’t be fitted until Monday morning so Gordon busied himself painting the roof of the boat. Perfect weather – dry but not too hot with a nice breeze to help the paint go off.
I smoked some fish and cheese to help keep the fridge and freezer topped up.
This morning they gave us a yell and said that they were ready for us.
Somehow I don’t think anybody had done a risk assesment on this. Up to his waist in water under a 15 ton boat with a piece of live electrical flex dangling in the water? Got to be close to insane! Watching scared the living daylights out of me but Colin just got on with the job.
We can’t begin to thank you for your help.
