New Water Cans Part 5

 My new name, "Not too happy of Warwick" 😭 

Caught the handle of one of the water cans with my foot and this is the result, they definitely don't make them like they used to 😡

Brass bolts and nuts ordered I just have to wait for them to be delivered. 😩

New Water Cans

 Saturday I started to paint the 2 new water cans by primering the insides, yesterday I primered the bases and today I finished primering them. They are almost ready for undercoating. 😊

These are the 2 original cans which were damaged in a tunnel this year that the new ones will replace.


Insides primered Saturday

Welford to Norton Junction

 This morning we left Welford at 9:05am, moored just past Norton junction at 4:25pm, 7hrs 20mins, 8 locks 1 tunnel. /// ballooned.etchings.shortcuts

Wet and dry, wet and dry morning, started off wet this morning, Jo lit the back cabin stove but rain stopped by the time we got to Watford locks and it warmed up nicely.

We were supposed to be in dry dock at Welford today, but Les has gone down with Covid 😟

We are now returning to our mooring and will have to see what happens with my hospital appointment next month before we can rebook the dry dock.
