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.

Hours run since overhaul: 1050

Anything to report?
* Antifreeze needs topping up- it is only protected to -5degC 1 litre added, will need to drain a little if more is required
* Diesel leak at No 2 injector- not a surprise.

"The sweetest easiest BMC I have worked on. A dream to bleed and a good starter" "A bit of smoke at the start" said young Tom the marine engineer.

Hardly surprising either after a frosty night and no exercise for a month!

I am pretty pleased with that.

Well done SONFLOWER.
