The photo doesn't do justice to the gloss and colour of the paint, which is Japlac. Amazing stuff.
We will be using the seat next week if all goes according to plan. We'll be going down the canal to Brentford, up the Thames to Weybridge and down the Wey to Godalming. This will be our first time on the big river and we have to have extra safety measures in place especially for the tidal bit where we will have lifejackets and an anchor kindly lent by Geoff on Lady Elgar. We've also bought ouselves a pay-as-you-go broadband dongle for the laptop so we can keep the blog fed with pictures and words about the cruise..
Peter has just returned from a conference trip in the USA and hopes to join us for three days on the Wey, although quite where we will pick him up I can't work out yet. Most of the Wey is open countryside and Peter doesn't drive.
