About Me

My photo
The name describes my demeanour and voice! I love narrowboating and that is why this blog is mainly about the boat and our interaction with it. I have been keeping a log for Sonflower ever since we bought her and moved onto her as our main residence. Some incidents in our boating life have been hilarious, some scary and some down right dangerous. I cannot tell what will come in the future but you can now share them! The crew are an 'ordinary' couple. The Best Mate and I.

To sign write, or not?

Today SONFLOWER entered Tooley's dry dock and is now resting on the bottom.

We don't have a photo but hope to take some snaps as the work progresses. There always seems to be something else to do.

We admired the paintwork nb Emerald Dream which was the boat getting the full works before ours. She looked beautiful. The sign writing on her particularly made me think that we should be having SONFLOWER sign-written rather than the vinyls I had intended to replace. I asked Tooley's to get me a quote. It would be silly spoiling a proverbial ship for the ha'pence worth of tar.

We were shown the windows new windows that arrived today.

Exciting isn't it?
