Can’t leave the boat alone!

This weekend we’ve travelled up to Oxfordshire to see the family and to meet up with friends we haven’t seen this year.  While we were in the Aldermaston area we popped in to see Tom and Jan on nb Waiouru on the Kennet and Avon canal.  We hadn’t seen them since they came out with us on ‘Chance’ for the day last May and so we had a good catch up with them.  It was good to see that work is in progress on nb Waiouru now.
We’re now staying with Frances (youngest daughter) and Kel for the weekend before going down to Devon next week to get James’ dental treatment finalised.  However, before we left…….!
……….James just had to do something “boaty”.  So, having brought the woodwork home from the rear deck for refurbishment he started sanding down the old varnish.  Although it still looked very good the weather was starting to take its’ toll and another year would certainly have reduced its’ appearance.
Getting both side pieces back to bare wood before the supply of sanding pads ran out!
At least the difference can be seen!
