Its that time of year again when we start to see the regular visitors to the area after they have been out cruising all year long, we have regular canal users that live on their boats and still move up and down the Shropshire Union canal, we have our own moorers that come home and we have our regular customers who come to us for winter moorings and works, so while the canal is now starting to go quieter we are kept occupied by looking after our regulars! Its great to see those customers who we haven’t seen for a while and catch up on the gossip from around the canal system, no doubt this will involve several pints of beer as well.
We have had a busy day today, Simon has had his head in a diesel tank that
was leaking, he eventually sorted it out, then he went back to his stern gear
on the boat in the dry dock, Fred has been moving boats around, as it is the
last week of the cruising season we have virtually all of the boats going out
so we don’t have much space in the basin which means we have to shuffle them
about a bit, Fred then went and blacked a boat and did a few odd jobs around
the wharf, Lee is still painting, Steve, Angela, Joyce and Mick are on their
days off which has left me in the office by myself for most of the day, so I
have been busy manning the phones, doing quotes, putting stock away, serving
customers etc, now I am knackered! See I do some work occasionally!!!!!!
