We have been enjoying being on our own at the end of the arm here at Welford and used the time wisely. Del has constantly been working on the outside of the boat with brasses, polishing, painting the plank and pole, engine belts checking and central heating service, plus adding a few new bits like ropes and fenders..
Al on the other hand did the same inside and with the smell of some home cooking, Derwent6 really is home..
We topped up with diesel and grabbed a bag of coal, only the fifth bag we have brought this winter as there has been so much wood..
So Derwent6 is ready for the off and a cruise could be on the cards for tomorrow.
