About Me

My photo
70 now and our five wonderful years aboard our narrowboat Skyy seem along time ago. Jacquie, allowed me to build my replica three wheeler kit car, which was a great success. Now it's time to start on a bigger project and that is to make a good Triumph Stag even better, here goes.

Another nine locks today, saw us back at Wigrams Turn, blown in by a stiff breeze, but we got back onto our pontoon without disturbing anybody else. The weather had been very kind to us, on this short cruise and despite several forecasts of rain, what did come down was over one night.

John and Kim did say that the water pump was coming on more often over night, than previously, and thought that probably I was having to ‘get up’ more often. This information made us think that he water on the floor by the rear door, wasn’t just rain, but maybe from the washing machine. John immediately had the machine out of its housing and sure enough there was a dribble from the filler hose. John had it sorted in no time, no more damp and dispelled the myth of my excessive nocturnal wanderings.

We would be saying farewell to K & L on Saturday, after our usual very enjoyable week together, so we celebrated with a fish and chips supper.

SKYY will be staying put for a few weeks, so probably not much to blog about, but watch this place, MAC WILL BE BACK!!!
