Today's visit to the boatyard revealed an almost finished boat. The final coating was applied late on Friday, which has given it the whole weekend to harden. All that remains is for the red and cream tunnel bands to be painted on the stern, for the weed hatch to be refitted and the anodes welded back on. We are anticipating a relaunch on Tuesday morning.
Assuming all goes to plan tomorrow, we should be ascending Foxton Locks by midday. An hour later, I suspect we will have some fresh war wounds to our newly painted hull.
