Visited the boat today just in time to see the last porthole frame being fitted. They and the window frames look good. The cooker and hob were being fitted this afternoon. Most of the edgings between ceiling and wall panels are in place as are the wood strips covering the wall panel joins. The solid fuel stove is in place awaiting final fix. Such a big change in a week.
This w`end NB SELEUS goes in dock to have some paintwork re-done, we will miss her.

Happy New Year to you all, and hope you had as good a Christmas as we did. After all that sitting around we decided a visit to the boat coupled with a brisk walk canalside was in order. Only one boat on the move, single handed heading forBoxmoor. He was concerned he would not get through Winkwell swing-bridge as he'd heard BW were doing work. We were able to say we'd seen no sign of any work there, so off he went through the foam beyond Sewer Lock! Foam??!! I hear you say - well, here are the photos. Can anyone explain why this is happening? Is it a regular occurence? It appeared to be coming from the nearby sewage farm. Anyway the heron did'nt seem to mind - perhaps he likes his fish well washed?
Progress is still going well on the boat, the tiling for the stove surround is up and looking great, more doors fitted to various gaps, boiler is commisioned, stove going in shortly and internal window frames will soon be installed.
