Insulation demonstration

Looking at the snow on Herbie's roof this morning I was pleased to see that the only bits that had melted were the areas of roof around the stove chimney and the water heater chimney. That must mean that the ceiling insulation is pretty good because we were toasty warm inside the boat.

There must be some heat escaping from the hull though because the other night I went outside to take a last breath of outside air before retiring to bed, and shining a torch into the water I saw a large shoal of small fish around the boat. I wouldn't be at all surprised if some of Crick's monster carp were sheltering beneath our baseplate.

Snow always makes the place look fresh and pretty and our corner of the marina was undisturbed by vehicle tracks. The white snow showed up the colours of the bare trees. Colours which you wouldn't notice in normal weather.

We're back home now, but we'll be back afloat at the weekend giving Grace a half term treat.
