After lunch, and after Smudge's walk, we moved AmyJo down onto the Anglo Welsh Wharf as all their boats bar one are out. I feel for the owners of the boats on the moorings above the locks. We were only there a few hours this morning before we moved but got bashed several times by passing or waiting boats. We even had crews jumping on and off the boat! Where has respect for other peoples property gone these days? Bet they would not like it if I kept driving a 30 ton truck into their homes or their cars heh?
We'll now be here for the coming week for two reasons. One, AmyJo is booked to go into their poly tunnel to finally get her gunwales repainted plus a few rust spots on the roof dealt with. Second, as payment, I am going to help out around the yard during the week preparing for their open day on the 23rd (all are welcome by the way) and just doing general jobs where needed. I'll also be helming their day boat doing free trips along the cut and back for taster sessions. I really enjoy that so look forward to then.
