Yes, we pre-signed all the paperwork and legged it back to the boat. One has to get on with life and anyway, we’d sold everything or put it into storage and so had no furniture – not even a bed, so we had to go! The Bank Holiday weekend was the famous Crick Show – the biggest show for all things inland waterways …
A very busy place with loads of exhibitors, boats and people . .
And a few other stalls … beer tent (beer at £4.20 ouch!) and a even a gin stall
I got to chat with Steve Wedgwood from Vetus about my leaking stern gland and he was most helpful … here’s a photo of the same:
It still leaks after lots of grease being squirted into that tiny bolt, just in front of the red lever . . here’s a not too clear video of mine in action, drips not too clear but it does show how hard it is to get at . .
Hmm, not up to http://cruisingthecut.co.uk/ videos but it works!
After all that, I trudged home and time for a gin . .
