Shop front in the summer

Where has the day gone?

Well I don't know where the day has gone to. It's quarter to six and I've only just started writing the blog!

It's been a bit unsettled today. We've had a bit of rain and quite high winds again, although the sun has emerged at times...

Mick and Ralph saw to the dayboats this morning and then undocked Pat's boat and docked a boat that required a survey. Unfortunately the surveyor was a bit heavy handed with his hammer and managed to knock a hole through the hull. This turned out to be into the holding tank for the toilet. We don't tend to have any welders in on a Sunday, so I made a quick phone call to Bernard who was more than happy to pop in and patch it up for us. It was amazing as the rest of the boat is sound.

Bernard and Ralph subsequently have flooded the dock and put to more boats in ready to be docked in the morning. One for a new stern gear and the other for a propeller change - so that will keep Graham out of mischief tomorrow!

Jack and Jay have been busy in the tearoom whilst Cheryl has been cleaning boats and Lorraine has been catching up in the laundry and manning the shop and phones.

That's about it from me today.

Until next weekend.

Best regards,
