Four Shiny and Ready to go

by Bigplumbs » 07 May 2018, 14:01

Like many I was caught out by the weather but I now have one on the water, Three shone up and ready to go and just one to completely do and put on the water and a SIB to get going.

Well mine was looking nice and clean until today.
It now needs a good rinse off, polish again and more importantly half a beach of sand and what appears to be half of the dogs hair to be cleaned out.

Having said that, what a day out. The weather was fantastic, the sea state was what you can only wish for!

Think I’ll need to take a day off just to get it back to an acceptable standard again. All worth while though. 8-)

They’re all looking good though dennis, the new one looks nice!
You been out on her yet?

Yes have been out in the new one a couple of times but only the broads Have done about 100 miles in her so far but all below 6 knots :(

Good to see you have been out even though your boat is not a bit messy. When I was cleaning mine yesterday I washed and polished some very small areas of dirt and thought but the first time I go out these will be insignificant. Still nice to start with them clean

I second that about the dog, our first weekend with the new dog on board. Whilst he handled it better than expected he seems to have left half of himself on the boat some how. Black Lab hairs everywhere. :roll:

Always good to have a shake down trip albeit a dirty one, this one was a bit longer than usual at 2 nights on the river Gt Ouze but the trip back has highlighted a handbrake stuck on = VERY hot Wheel on the Kia and a possible worn drive shaft. all just before heading 300miles to Torbay in 3 weeks time. :lol:
