The job starts

On Monday morning, we were up and ready early to move across the canal, to moor up by Roy's workshop, but there was still a boat there, a job still in progress. Roy rang to explain. The job had over-run a little, and he needed the owner to take it out for a short spin, to test if all was OK. The boat duly left, winded, and returned an hour later. Work still needed to be done, so it was just after we'd finished lunch that we were able to take Kantara across and moor her, ready for work to commence.

Roy drove me back to the marina to collect the car, while Grace emptied the galley of pots, pans, crockery, cutlery... everything! When I got back, there was a carful of stuff to to be loaded to take back to the house with us. Roy spent another half-hour or so with us, making sure he fully understood the work to be done, and Grace left him with drawn plans and detailed notes. We finally left at around 6:00, fortunately missing the worst of the traffic rush.

So here we are, back in St Albans, with a to-do list as long as my arm! We're hoping the job will be complete within a month. Fingers crossed!
