Maintenance not Sailing!

Some people have been sailing all over the place, one has got to the Scillies, but I don’t think that they were particularily comfortable! Rain then wind then sun then rain – that’s just one day!

The Boss & I have gone down to the boat several times between us to start getting the boat ready for the deck renovation plus other stuff as reported in the last entry.

We now have a properly protected sockets for 240v power at the chart table, galley and aft locker. Later, I hope to add an immersion heater if I don’t break the hot water tank trying to remove the brass blanking plug. We have plans to add a couple of other sockets in the saloon when I get the extra lockers built.

While it’s great to be close to the CLub causeway, however, we’re also very close to the roosting places for the Black-faced gulls who leave their calling cards.

Gulls - Don't you just love them!

We have got plans for sailing in a couple of weeks before we are lifted out in early Oct.
