Blacking of Bottom

Now sitting in the dry dock at Kingfisher Narrow boats (who built Jandai) at Trent Lock, right at start of Erewash Canal as you turn off River Trent.    We came in Monday and will be out Friday with a bright shiney black bottom!     Also having solar panels fitted which should go on Thursday.    Going to stick around here for a couple of weeks - catching up with friends and family.   Must admit, don’t like living in the dry dock - dark and gloomy.   Tell you what, thank goodness it isn’t wintertime!

Since last blog we have done …  12 miles and  8 locks
Total since Setting Off ….. 1421 miles and  1165 locks 
before power washing - so the ducks did
a good job of keeping the weed down !
