1. Day three (three coats of Dacrylate later).
2. Day four (paint curing and tinkering day).
3. After eight years the steelwork is unblemished by corrosion or electrolytic pitting.
4. Plenty of elbow room.

The past two weeks have passed far two quickly for my liking.

However we completed what we set out to do during a planned five day layover in Portland Basin Marina Dry-Dock last week. We left on Friday to spend Easter weekend in Droylesden Marina.

With everything shipshape once again we're making an early start at dawn tomorrow (bank holiday Monday), to work down the eighteen locks of the Aston flight into Manchester's Ducie Street Junction, and then on down the Rochdale nine through Manchester. So a long day ahead of us. We hope to make Worsley on the Leigh Branch of the Bridgewater Canal by late Monday afternoon.

Hiya Ginny and Will,

Looking good there and hope you're having a grand weekend. Not so good weather, but I bet you both are having a chilling time. Look forward to meeting up when you're next in the area. Will bring a bottle and have a bit of a chat. Take care you two and stay safe :)

Had been wondering why you had been so quiet over the past few weeks, now I know!

Nice job indeed, are you booked back in for Easter 2020?
