More boats needed

Wow another fantastic day here at Norbury, its been that warm that I have even shed my coat! I knew first thing this morning that it was going to be a nice day, It was very cold this morning with the car being covered in a good frost, it was also very foggy and the air was heavy with moisture which was causing everything to became frosty, it didn't last too long and by lunch time the sun had disappeared the fog and cold and it has been a stunning day all day long!

We have had a very busy day today, the phones being busy, the shop and tea room have been busy, boat bookings have been flooding in, and I have sold two boats, now that's a result! David sold two last week, so we are getting seriously low on stock, so if you want to sell your boat, get it to us as quick as you can.

The lads have all been busy today, Simon has been cranking a flue, no that's no kinky or anything like that, he has been putting some angles in to a flue pipe so that it fits between the stove and the roof collar and generally finishing the fitting of it and tidying up, Fred as usual has been blacking and painting the day boats in the wet dock, Mick has been removing the panelling out of the front of a boat that we are going to dock tomorrow to replace its bow thruster tube, there is a lesson to be learnt here, this boat is not a very old boat, only about 10 or 11 years but because the bow tube cant easily be accessed along its full length when docked for blacking it has eventually corroded and sprang a leak, and subsequently sank! Be warned folk if you have a bow tube fitted, make sure that when you have the hull blacked you treat your bow tube to some TLC as well.

Until tomorrow.
