Back cabin complete...

... and ready sail! Last Friday while i was off biking in Scotland that boat passed its boiler certificate. And we also got a letter back from the insurance brokers confirming we do not need another hull survey until 2014 having had one last year. Biking in Scotland was excellent. Four of us undergraduates from JCB borrowed our family car and trailer and spend three nights youth hosteling at Glentress near Melrose. The weather was fantastic and the riding even better. Beautiful!

A view from the track over the hill. Also my bike.
The group of misfits and myself!
One of the more technical parts of the 29km cross country trail.

The refit in the back cabin is now complete with the exception of a number more coats of varnish and a few bits that are going to wait until later. And we are set to leave the Marina under our own steam next weekend, only a week after we originally planned to do so.

We are now not planning to attend the SBA Trent lock rally, but will spend time around around the Chester/Anderton area until mid August when we will move the boat down the Autherley for the National rally en route to this years Shackerstone on the 7th and 8th of September. After which we plan to complete the Hudderfeild canal to Mirfeild, and return along the Rochdale canal with a plan to return to TravelReign (now Uplands Marina) for another winter.
