First up we refitted the bathing platform which Liam had repaired. You may remember there was a small accident a few months back when we towed Huwey Louis back from West Stockwith and his anchor ran into the platform. Well that is all repaired and back on the boat now.
Unfortunately the new bolts fitted to the transom gate hinge were not long enough so we will have to head back to the boat on Thursday evening to get that fitted back on the boat ready for our bank holiday trip to West Stockwith this coming weekend.
We also put on some fresh bedding, had a tidy up in the cabin and refilled the fuel tank. 146 litres this time so we had not run it down as far as last time. We will now have plenty of fuel for our trip to West Stockwith and probably won't need to fill up again until we are ready to head up the Trent in July.

What a beautiful it is. We have done a few odd jobs this morning, filled up with diesel and are now on our way to Saxilby for a BBQ in the sunshine.
While waiting for diesel we decided to see if Sydney would swim from the slipway. He has now gotten over his fear of water and loves swimming. In fact he didn't want to get out when it was time to go!

We will have a steady run to Saxilby, we will really have no rush, provided we can get moored up somewhere, which we always can, then we will have somewhere to BBQ and relax.

Whenever we visit with Naughty-Cal it always seems such a rush job. Our two week holiday always entails a two day rush down to the Broads followed by a seven day whistle stop tour of the Broads and then a battle to get back home by sea again, which almost always decides it is going to rough up for us on the home leg and make life interesting for us.
We have been discussing this and have decided that the next time we visit Norfolk, we will do so on the trailer. This way we can get the full two weeks down there and have no worries about sea conditions for getting back home. It will take all of the stress out of the time on the Broads and give us plenty of chance to visit all of the places that usually only get a fleeting fly by on our whistle stop tours of the area.
Now to decide when we will go again.
