Where do you start?

Saturday... Well where do I start??

Following Simons quote on here yesterday it has been surprisingly busy. We have ended up with two boats going out and one turning around here from another yard!

Bernard had to do some repairs to Debdale this morning. Unfortunately she had struck something whilst out and about which resulted in the top guard being split at the fore end. This wouldn't be a major problem but on this particular boat it forms part of the water tank and therefore meant that the water tank was leaking overboard. The water tank was drained, the boat turned round and facing head onto the wharf had the repairs carried out. This involved grinding out where the guard iron had split and welding it up. A coat of black and the water tank refilled and you would never know that it had happened! I tried to get a picture of Bernard in action, but it didn't come out very well!

Ralph's done a sterling job at blacking and tidying up some of the paintwork on Lavender Lee. I think we will have to get the cabin washed and polished next. Here is a picture of her on the dry dock earlier today.
Fred's been doing "Fred jobs"! Pumping out, refuelling, changing gas bottles and filling water tanks. That keeps him busy, and quiet...

Well I'm off to Tamworth tonight, to see some good friends and catch up with some news. So I will leave you all to enjoy your evening and will report again tomorrow on happenings in and around Norbury!
