March 13th 2012 Painting

I drove up from Suffolk yesterday, leaving early around 06:15 i arrived at the marina around 09:30,it was a good drive up apart from some quite foggy sections. After sorting out the boat (gas \ water) i set about painting the gunwales on Shell Bell. Our next door neighbours on the Marina are Ian and Sally on there boat Thomas as i arrived they were preparing to go of cruising down the coventry canal for a few days, so that has allowed me to move Shell Bell across from one pontoon to the other saving a lot manoeuvres. The weather so far has been good and it is predicted to stay good until Friday.
