October 17th 2011 A good weekends work

the new low energy led outside light

The planned weekend on board for Norwyn and Scott to do some odd jobs went well. Leaving Bungay around 07:30 on Saturday they had a good trip and were onboard Shell Bell around 10:45. With plenty of odd jobs to do they got stuck in and by 18:00 they had completed a pretty extensive list

1) dripping shower tap cured

2) new door on shower cubicle

3) plank, pole, broom and mop all painted

4) horn moved from the back of the boat to the front; this involved leading a wire the whole 58ft length of the boat

5) LED light fitted on cruiser stern for outside lighting and also tidying up of the electric panel.

6) new TV arial connections and removing old U\S arial from the roof 

The evening was spent having a nice meal and pint down The Dragon inn,  Adele and Bob joined them later for a drink.

After a good nights sleep Sunday morning we went for breakfast at the tea rooms on the marina site- great value for money.The  job we were dreading was moving the sette from the boat but it went well and we soon had it transferred from boat to van. This will allow us to buy two new reclining chairs and foot stools as replacements. After that we had a good tidy up of the boat and a short trip out on the canal for Scott - he has done a lot of work on the boat but this was his first trip out. All to soon we back on the moorings and saying goodbye to the neighbours and heading back to Bungay.The following pictures show some of the work including the work being done by Adele Banks.

    Which chairs are you going for?

    We’re thinking of upgrading from our IKEA Poangs on SA.

      Hi Bruce we are having a pair cream stressless type swivel chairs with matching foot stools

    Nice, but what a tease!

    Where from, if you don’t mind my asking? Prices seem to range from the reasonable to the ludicrous…

      Hi Bruce we are currently looking at chairs from a store in Norwich Aldiss, (www.aldiss.com) we are looking at there relaxeeze Avanti swivel recliner and stool but at the moment they have stopped doing the cream so we might have to settle for brown cost £199.
      We have also tracked down some at A.H.F but have not had a chance to view yet (www.co-opfurniture.com)we quite like the look of the Shanhai chair and stool in cream £219.99, as you quite rightly state there are huge variations in prices.

    Thanks, Norwyn, very interesting indeed. Hopefully, we’ll get a chance to meet up after you’ve got them, as we’ll be in Mercia Nov – Feb.

    All the best

      regards Norwyn
