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.

SONFLOWER is back on her home mooring having been to Crick and back via the Welford Arm.

She is looking very nice inside as our friends have given her a real good going over!

She behaved well on the trip apart from losing out to a hire boat in Braunston Tunnel that resulted in the loss of the starboard navigation light against the tunnel wall. Small beer! C'est la vie sur l'eau!

I went to empty the fridge today and found that the gas had run out with impeccable timing. A bottle change completed we now need to cruise to Sovereign Wharf for a re-charge and diesel. I will enjoy that.
