Its that time of year when we have some of the shared owned boats disappear to different marinas, new shared boats arriving for their stay with us for a year or two, old hire boats being sold off and the arrival of new to us hire boats, we have already had one ex hire boat turn up today to be sold on, which David will get done this weekend, we have another new to us hire boat arriving on Saturday and another one next week, so we want to change the names on the two boats, I would like to keep them short and to one syllable, so its your chance to fire some names at me, it would also be good if one of them started with the letter P, however it is not that important, look at our current fleet of boats to get some idea of what might fit in, whoever comes up with the right name, and if we decide to use it then I will make sure that their name gets mentioned in the brochure and on the side of the boat, this could be your chance for a bit of canal fame, send your names to firstname.lastname@example.org don’t forget to put your name on the email as well.
Its been a very quiet day here today, which has been good as I am now nearly
on top of my jobs again, we had a day boat go out this morning and as I am
writing this blog it has just returned and the people have had a superb day, at
least the weather has been kind to them! Angela has been a busy bee today, she
has booked six boats for next year, which is excellent, as well as looking
after the tearoom in between answering the phones and doing paperwork, Fred and
the new chap Martin have been really busy, Fred is showing him the ropes
because he is retiring as from next year, well not quite full time retirement
as I wont let him but a couple of days a week is ok, so they have been docking
boats, pumping boats out and moving boats all day long to facilitate the
turnaround this weekend.
That’s it from me until tomorrow, don’t forget the names.
