Well Mick and I succeeded with the breakdown that we had last night. Unfortunately Sphynx's gearbox decided to give up the ghost at Stretton Aqueduct. It hasn't shown any signs of loosing drive, but it appears that the clutch pack has failed. We moved the boat down to Wheaton Aston and I had a new gearbox delivered today, which as I write Simon is fitting and we will get someone to bring the boat back. The customers had to get off home so I organised respective taxis for them.
It's been a gorgeous day here at Norbury today. The sun has been shining and everyone has got cheery smiles on their faces.
Joyce has been busy in the tearoom today, whilst Ange and I have been in the office. Simon has done some jobs on a few private boats, fitted the gearbox to Sphynx and welded some anodes onto the boat on the dry dock. Steve has been in today doing some varnishing for me whilst Mick has been finishing off some odd private jobs before starting on a galley refit.
