Too busy

The title doesn't reflect the amount of customers that we have seen but it does explain why I missed writing the blog last night, I was just too busy yesterday to write it up, I am only kidding about customers as yesterday and today has seen many more people around, its getting colder so people are stocking up on winter fuels, the weather although cold has been very nice indeed and we have been blessed with bright sunshine for the last couple of days, a stark contrast to this time last year which saw us plunged in to temperatures more akin to the Antarctic.

As I said it has been a busy couple of days on the wharf, and the lads have all been busy as well, Fred with blacking and pressure washing boats, painting deck board edges as well as delivering coal to some of our regular customers, Bernard has been winter engine servicing, Steve has been tidying up the moorings before he disappears abroad for his holidays, Graham has been making new deck boards and re edging some of the existing ones on the hire fleet while Matt has been putting the finishing touches on to Pippin which is our latest addition to the hire fleet, it has been painted in our fleet colours of grey, black and red and it looks superb, as I write this blog it is in the process of having its sign writing done by our sign writer, I am sure that David will post a picture of it when it comes out of the dock on Sunday, Matt has also been out today to another boatyard to deliver some parts for an engine for one of the boats that was on its way back to us to be sold but it didn't make it!

That's it from me for another day
