Hmm.....
 
Catrin & Wrigglefingers conspiring......  Could be at least one of two things.
 
Doesn't sound like music to my ears, reckon it is something to do with being stitched up!


Would I?

I'm confused, there must be a duplicate thread about this, I posted on that one last night! We will be there with Birmingham, don't expect her tidy yet!

"Sickle" is a little early for this event, as she is now less than a day from Alvecote!

 

So who else will be there, then?

Details of our trip to to the Braunston Historic Boats event with both boats are now finally in our blog (see below).

There is a certain plan to get Cobbett to Alvecote, despite the owner

Good to hear. Odin was wagging so much when he saw Lister when we were passing through Blisworth I was worried he'd fall off the back.

Oh! Eddie and Glyn are making progress with Python then. Good chaps :)

 

Paddy and Ruth have a lot of extra ballast they need to adjust. (no I didn't mean the effects of the fudge boat and the cheese boat being so close to them at Blisworth either)

If my opinion was correct, true and valid. We would all share the same opinion. Then it wouldn't be an opinion.

I just has a call from Python crew member Eddie to ask who the bloke was asking where I was - I said oh that will be Matty then - he said no it wasn't Maffi, I know Maffi ;)

 

I now need to find a replacement screw cap for the thetford waste tank as it appears it has been lost into the elsan point. It won't the first time that has happened and it won't be the last.

Python has arrived and is once again doing her usual trick of allowing the wet stuff that is supposed to be on the outside to come inside. :(

 

Bilge pump in place and working, battery hooked up to a landline. We will pop in tomorrow evening to check all looks ok. If anyone who is on the scene notices her starting to look a little lower in the water than she should be or a list then please don't ignore it. Lots of people have my contact number and Laurence is aware of the situation.

You can get replacement lids for the waste outlet of cassettes for about £4 in most chandlers.

Ask me how I know this.
