Sparks Marine Trimmers, the upholsterer who’s been making the cushions for the kids bunks for our Eileen rang yesterday to confirm that the cushions were ready for collection; so last evening Mol and I headed out into the Buckinghamshire countryside to collect them.
Crossing the Chilterns we were caught in one of the most violent storms I’ve experienced in years. The road inundated, huge puddles forming in moments and visibility down to zero.
We were soaked by the time the cushions were transferred from car to boat.
As the photos below show, things are moving apace on with the woodwork and the scale and proportions of the new permanent additions to the boat can be seen for the first time… and, to my eye they look great.
If we’re to be able to use the boat at all this Summer holiday things are now really going to have to happen. Today’s the day for some honest and forthright conversations I reckon.
