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.

In the morning John and I reversed SKYY back through the bridge to the boatyard on the corner of the Slough arm junction. There we filled up with diesel, just over 90 liters, which worked out at nearly six and a half liters a day, over he last 14 days, or £6 a day, not bad for so much enjoyment, considering we are hauling our whole world around with us.

The weather was slowly deteriorating, so fare weather friends that they are, after two weeks of nearly perfect weather, Kim & John decided it was time to jump ship and made arrangements for daughter Jodi to collect them tomorrow. We steamed on through urban Uxbridge and only stopped when we reached bridge 180. Here the canal has lakes on either side and at this point the lake and canal become one and although It was raining the setting was splendid. We settled down to enjoy our last evening meal on board with Kim & John, but not before John sorted out my new Aldi Satellite dish and receiver and we managed to uploaded over 300 free channels, success!!!!
