New resident at Norbury attracts some interest

Regular visitors to Norbury will notice that we have a new resident. He moved in last week and seems quite content to live within our "working boatyard" environment. I first noticed him on Wednesday when he was fishing on the towpath opposite the boat that I was working on. He has also taken to sitting on the front of the hire boats, watching the world go by and creating alot of interest. I managed to capture a picture of him earlier and I thought that you might like to see it.

It's been a busy day here at Norbury today. We had three dayboats out first thing, followed by the trip boat out on a five hour chartered cruise to Wheaton Aston and back. We have just finished turning her around and we are off out again at 7pm with a Fish and Chip trip.

Simon has finished installing the engine in Ben Cruachan and it has been run up and tested. I must say it runs a treat and it runs really quietly and smoothly. We have sound proofed the whole engine room, it is mounted on super duper rubber mounts and we have installed an Aqua Drive.

Mick has been doing a bit of this, that and the other, but is making head way with the works he is doing on Ben Cruachan too.

Rich and Fred have finished painting a roof on a boat that we have currently got in the Wet dock which we should be swapping for Thea tomorrow.

I best go and walk the dog, get changed and get ready for the trip at seven. Until tomorrow!

Best regards,
