Our old rusty BW plates needed replacing and we needed to have the Small Ships Register number painted on both sides, so it would be easier to have both numbers painted on the side near the bow. A local sign-writer came this morning, the first dry day for a long time, and within two hours the job was done, complete with the new Canals & Rivers Trust logo. The old rusty plates can now be removed.
Tomorrow we are meeting the lads from Kinver Canopies in the hope that they can make a good canopy for the semi trad stern.
I was lucky earlier because I wanted to fit an electric socket in the semi trad well, but it needs to be waterproof. Screwfix were selling the perfect solution for half price and their local store is just 5 minutes away and it wont take long to fit it and wire it into the socket behind the rear bulkhead.
Just couple of other jobs to finish and then we are ready to set sail again. Just hope the continuing rain, sorry short interruptions in the drought, ceases and maybe even the sun will shine. So is it to be Stratford on Avon or Oxford?
