Back In Whixall Marina

A view from the side hatch

We're  currently back in the Marina with a few things we wanted to do before we go out cruising. I've been making new curtains and have three more pairs to make. We needed four pairs of porthole sized curtains, a door curtain for the front doors and five pairs of curtains for the saloon and galley windows so it's been quite a task.

Yesterday during the torrential rain we had a leak and wondered where rain was getting in. Luckily we were in waiting for the rain to stop, as it came through in big drips where the TV and broadband hub was. Somebody hadn't sealed around the wooden block on the roof when they put our boat back together. Clear sealant used by Eric soon sorted the problem.

I've been catching up with a washing mountain this week too. It's  always windy here but today it's really windy. Last night the noise from the rain on the roof was really loud so I found it difficult to get  to sleep until I found my ear plugs

We've  had the central heating on as it's  been cold after the hot weather we had last month. There's  smoke coming from quite a few chimneys. Eric feels the cold anyway while I'm usually hot.

Just a note if you want fuel at Whixall Marina it's only available Tuesday to Saturday between 9 am and 5 pm.
