It was a bloody cold night and a lovely day. We haven't used the central heating, due to the fact it seems to get the water hotter then the engine, which causes more stress on the weeping tank we have at the moment. So Del crept out of bed and lit the fire with ice on the portholes. We would have kept it in if we'd thought about it! Is it cold on boats? yes at the moment....
As it was a nice day we then walked up to Wickes and we went to Pizza hut for lunch. Del got some bonding putty in Wickes, which mixes with a hardener. It goes on like blue tack and you cover the area which has the problem. It doesn't look neat, but goes rock hard after a hour and sticks to the tank well.
We had the rest of the day watching telly with Strictly, I'm a Celeb and the Grand Prix.
On Monday we woke up to no leaks. Al left at 9.30am and got the train from Rugby down to Kent. Not an easy trip as a lot of the trains were cancelled due to a vehicle hitting a rail bridge at Coventry. She went to see her mum and dad and pick up some bits for Del, more about that later.
Del started on the tank and walked up to Wickes again and got some cavity foam insulation to cover the hole in the coating on the tank . This was then covered with tape to hold it all in and stop it foaming all over the place. He also changed the gearbox oil while the covers were off.
