1300 hrs and, surprise, surprise, absolutely nothing has occurred, despite a "gentle reminder" a few minutes ago. At this rate we'll become marina residents by default.
1430 hrs Wabaco boiler unit removed and warranty replacement ordered. Bow thruster checked and broken safety pin suspected, but unfortunately not the easy one to get to. An "out of the water job". Lynne has gone for a pressure relief walk. The words Lynne and walk do not normally appear in same sentence so pressure must be severe. Where the hell does that leave me? I feel a pressure relief walk looming, but at least the sun is shining
1700 hrs. Pressure relief walk one completed long the canal towards Willington, round the nature reserve incorporating a small sewage works (good planning eh?) and back to the boat. It is now confirmed Tardis Two will be taken out of the water in the morning. Lynne and I then both went for a walk with a little terrier dog we are baby-sitting for friends on the marina, but this time along the canal in the opposite direction. On return we ran the engine to get hot water for our showers later.
