Tomorrow we take our first look at Herbie since November. Will the engine 'ole be full of rainwater? Will the stern gland have leaked? Have we had an infestation of mice or flies? Have any pipes burst? Will it be damp and mouldy? Well, we'll soon find out wont we? Having a boat is a bit like having kids -always something to worry about. It's always like this after a long break but this time the break is much longer.
It'll only be a fleeting visit en route to our Peter's place in Cambridge. I'm imagining we'll come away from the boat with a list of things "that need doing" before we go aboard proper for our first cruise since September. Maybe it'll be OK and we'll come away elated and eager to plan our first outing.
Tune in soon and I'll let you know.
