Phantom Fisherman.

Still moored at Blisworth .

Nothing much happened around here today except for a walk into town for some basic essentials.

At some time this morning a camping chair with 2 plastic containers and a fisherman's keep net appeared just ahead of our boat. The keep net was suspended in the water but at no stage have we seen a fisherman or fishing rod. These objects were left in place all day until about 7pm when they disappeared. I think a neighbouring householder dislikes boats mooring beside his house and puts out the bogus fishing gear to deter any boaters from mooring there. What a weirdo.

Well Gypsy Rover is almost 4 years old. As our boat safety certificate is due to expire soon I thought I had better organise something. I made contact with Clifton Cruisers at Rugby and found out who they use as we will be in that area soon. I have now made an appointment with Andrew Phasey at Clifton Cruisers for the 31st January. Hopefully as the boat is only 4 years old with very few modifications it should pass muster.

877 locks, 1187.5 miles, 34 Tunnels, 40 swing bridges and 19 lift bridges since Nov 2006
