I visited the boat today.
I have a visit to Tooley's Dry Dock booked for 6th to 9th March.
SONFLOWER is thirty years old so has to have an "out of the water" hull survey every five years for the Insurance Company. She will also be blacked.
As she has lain idle for so long I wanted to make sure she will start! Batteries are at 12.4v. A little low but acceptable.
The cruising season will so soon be upon us and it was so good to be along the towpath chatting to boaters who are already on the move. Some said they have not stopped this winter because ot has been so warm. Another confessed that he had had four weeks in Greece! He had overstayed on teh 14 day moorings! Good luck to him.
