I built a rickety MDF prototype of Herbie's new dining table on Saturday, and the we popped out to the boat to see if the design worked. It does! Now I have final measurements and some proper materials to make the real version which I hope to start tomorrow.
While we were there was saw Geoff (Saltysplash) who is excited about moving on to his new (yes, brand new) widebeam boat Amy. Apparently Amy will be craned into the canal on the 28th of this month and Lady Elgar who we have moored against for four years will be moved to make way for Amy.
We don't know what will happen to us. Herbie may be allowed to stay alongside Amy, but as Amy is wider we might be moved to another berth. Ooh er, such nice neighbours as Geoff and Laura are few and far between so we're a bit apprehensive. If they move us down the far end, that would be a good ten minutes walk from the car park and I think we'd be looking elsewhere for moorings.
