Getting ready for the shed


It was another hard frost last night and it was a good job we kept the fire in. We have got it down to just four coals now which seem to just last enough for us to get a few logs on in the morning to keep Derwent6 warm.

The sun came out and Derwent6 was creaking and groaning with the heat on one side and it still covered in ice on the other. Del decided that the gunwales on the starboard side were not bad enough yet to paint the whole side. So we ended up just touching bits in and rubbing a few bits down to make it look good. We thought we had better not move today, so we could let the paint dry. The wind picked up a bit and we had to pick a few leaves out but it will be ok. We are now ready for the shed tomorrow...
