Clean up.

0 Locks, 0 miles, still moored at Clifton Cruisers.
Total of 272 locks and 334 miles and 16 Tunnels since 5th Nov 2006

While we wait for the injectors to be returned I have been having a clean up in the engine hole.

The water and sludge that has built up and the spillage while taking the Mikuni heater out. It now looks quite tidy but I will have to get some degreasing cleaner before I can sand and repaint in there.
I did manage to finish painting the pole, plank and hook pole and they look very smart. We couldn’t photograph them due to the arrival of rain which has been quite persistent all afternoon.
Dot has been catching up with answering emails in between sessions of feeding the ducklings that seem to visit us about every 2 hours. I also fed them with my fishing bait that were maggots but had turned to chrysalis. They loved them.

Hi Derek and Dot...
Been reading up on your blog, pleased to know things are finally getting sorted out.
There is always something to be done on a boat, never a dull moment.
We have a mum who had 17 ducklings and now has 14 left and they are beginning to get their adult feathers now, but everyday they come for breakfast, it's as if they know they will have at least one good meal a day if they come tapping on the boat LOL.
Will hopefully see you on the cut with our new boat Hadar very soon.
Have a good weekend.
