Fitting out.

0 locks,   miles. Now moored at Bridge 22 , Ashby Canal

Last night Dot had an email from Pete on N/b Pickles 2 telling us he was at bridge 22 and would be working on his boat and give him a wave as we went past. He also said that they were hoping to move aboard in about 10 days which we thought might be a big ask.

There was still a thin layer of ice on the water this morning but very little frost when we slipped the moorings and headed up to bridge 22. When we arrived we found Pickles 2  OK and just as we were tying up Pete arrived. After a chat I said to Pete "Come on we can't stand around talking we have work to do" where upon we both boarded Pickles and set about cleaning up the overspray on the foam insulation before fitting the ducting for the wiring. By the time Pete left for home we had all the ducting up and run the 240v ring main, needless to say Pete was chuffed that between the 2 of us we had achieved about 3 days work had he been working alone. Just a bit of Kiwi hospitality mate. I must admit I enjoyed doing it.

894 locks, 1238 miles, 36 Tunnels, 41 swing bridges and 19 lift bridges since Nov 2006
