While at the yard Sue went into Braunston to the butcher (who incidently sources his beef from
for some chicken ,bacon and a chicken & ham pie, and some groceries from the store opposite. While I went down to the chandlers at bottom lock for the craftmaster paint I needed .. thanks Adam. While there I also bought a ladder come boarding platform.
Work all done and bill paid we decided to wind where we were this involved a lot of to-ing and fro-ing in between boats on the yards pontoons and the canal bank with boats breasted up and with onlookers, I managed it without removing a slither of paint off any vessel including Festina Lente for which I received a round of applause from Sue. The alternative would have been to go through Braunston tunnel to wind and come back again.
The only job to get done on the boat now apart from solar panels is some joinery work in the saloon and then we should have the boat pretty much how we want it.
We stopped of at the water point and filled the water tank on our way out of Braunston and we are now moored behind narrowboat Plum for our solar panel fitting tomorrow.
Happy Birthday to Jayden my cutest Grandson.
